The Furtive 50

At the end of every year for the past few years's had a vote to find the best dance tracks of the year. This has mainly been voted for by members of the DJH forum, but this year I thought I'd widen it out and canvas the opinions of lots of DJs, writers and collectors who we like and respect. Anyhow, we've tallied it all up and it's been broadcast over two parts on our new DJH Podcast, but here's the full rundown. There were several tracks in there that I hadn't heard so it's always nice to be able to go back and grab some of the tunes you missed (and hasten imminent bankruptcy into the bargain). Full credit list of those who contributed is below the chart.
