40 traxs in the Casey Kasem America’s Top 40 countdown style but the trax formation don't adhere to any criteria except the segue. They'e listed nonhierarchically so the first or last is not necessarily the best-fave of 2022.
The mix is peppered further with a healthy batch of cinematic insults & comebacks + the voice of Kasem. It is a best-of not beholden to release dates or other limitations. It is simply music I first heard & appreciated & surprised by in 2022 .
Enjoy this mix of ambient & dub ambient techno, some girl punk, some jazz, hardcore gabber [a compilation reissue of this very underregarded speed-punk-disco-techno Rotterdam-rooted subgenre, which may be cheating but why not & some trippy ethereal sounds. The Coltrane-Hartman album is from 1963 but was reissued this year. The list is personal & unique, avoiding most style criteria or trendy affectations like Roland or Hammond powered retro synthpop or retro not-cool-rock christened as suddenly ironic great.
37th in the radio Chart
