It is the end-of-year season with its countless "the best of 2014". Gravitating towards this trend, we're giving it our own spin. 2015 is jam packed with rumoured and guaranteed albums that are sure to make your new year absolutely fun.


It was 1995 when "Exit Planet Dust" shot Chemical Brothers right into the stratosphere. 7 studio albums later in 2015 we are ready for another rocket ride. The new album is currently unnamed, but assured to have some gnarly guest singers and musicians. Tom Rowlands said: "We hope for finding a new way to make you feel. We dream of new sounds and different frames."


Giorgio Moroder is the king of cool and collaborations. 2015 has a rumor of the king is working on his newest album in collabs with Lana Del Rey, Sia and Kylie Minogue to name a few. Moroder's original track "74 Is The New 24" is a wavering disco rooted jam with epic proportions. The three time Grammy winner's album is getting us super excited to bring in 2015.


The New Year is the birthplace for Skream's newest LP in over 4 years. Skream is stoked to make you and him happy with new material that keeps its tentacles in the older stuff with a different tempo. The artist mentioned the album is going to be "dark". Well, to our believes 2014 was the year of trippy dark vibes, so we’re curious, beyond belief, what this album’s dark side will bring to 2015. 


We're all passing along a juicy rumor that next year Agoria will be releasing his 5th album. He has switched from touring to in-studio mode till the beginning of March, though no other details or label info as of yet. Nevertheless we are over the moon for the future of Agoria. His recent release "Helice" that dropped this month has us counting down the days to 2015.


Nina Kraviz is digging into her treasure chest of righteous tunes and own label Trip for her new "DJ-Kicks" album. She is known for her classic deep house ties and staggering synth-pop that encourages you to scour scenes and Internet for more. She is the cause of that dance-crazed wild look you get in your eyes when you get your late night fix, this assortment of tunes is going to allow you to peek into the "trippy underwater vibe" of Kraviz.


Juan Atkins + 2015 = Model 500 + Digital Solutions. This will be Atkins' first album in 16 years under his Model 500 moniker! The originator of Detroit's techno scene is going to follow up to his 2010's "OFI/HUESCA" EP. The tracklist "Digital Solutions" is up which makes it much more real. 2015 is no longer just a scribble on the calendar, it's a sound, and we're dying to hear it. Here is one of the tracks previously released on vinyl only.


Another Detroit's native, Carl Craig, has us curious about his first album in …many ears! Last solo album was 2005's "The Album Formally Known As…", and then a collaborative "ReComposed" LP with Moritz von Oswald in 2008. Craig's tour "Detroit Love" is currently blossoming and blooming, and a coinciding album is said to grace us in the year of twenty fifteen. For now, have a taste of Carl Craig's most recent creation under his alias c2- remix on Caribou's "Your Love Will Set You Free".


2015 is super special for Martin Enke. This will be the year of his first album entitled "Purposely Uncertain Field". February 6, we will celebrate the eerie title and tech magic of Lake People. He is returning to Permanent Vacation since the 2013 EP "Uneasy Hiding Places". 

The New Year is coming fast and there were some serious good albums, tracks and festivals this year! Place those memories in your Favourites and make room for some new ones. 2015 is going to be... weird, so let’s get weird together!
