Best italodance track of 2011?

Okay, another year is coming to an end.

What do you think was the best track of the year? Sure there's another month left and anything can happen but I think it's time to sum up the year.

My number one would be "Fantomius meets [email protected] - Battlecry ([email protected] mix)". Simply because I waited for this track to be released for a year and when the full version finally became available, it didn't disappoint. Great melody, great bass and great atmosphere throughout the song. In my opinion so far the greatest Fantomius/[email protected] collaboration and would love to buy an album if it ever comes out. In the fading italodance scene this is like a light at the end of the tunnel and keeps me hopeful concerning the future.

Indeed, overall the year hasn't been very good in my opinion. The beginning was great but towards the end... not so. There's has been a lot of releases this year and continues to be so but I just don't see quality in many of them. Yell at me for bringing this old topic up, but I believe in quality over quantity.

It seems we're endangered species of sort. I don't know if the glory days are behind for good but I hope these current artists keep on learning and don't give up. This current elektrohouse s**t can't hold on forever!

Been around these boards for few years now and would also like to thank the whole IDP community in this thread. I am glad to be part of the community. A lot of great artists I would not have found without the help of IDP.

Ok. Enough with the bullshit Smile Just tell me what's your favorite production of the year?

i guess ill have to look in direction of a good old boy here... Luca Noise Wink

Una Domenica Italiana is one of the best produced, most balanced and sweet tracks this year. I agree with your thoughts about Battlecry, a very nice track aswell. But Luca Noise really reminds me of the good old Gigi days (if he released all his productions, we could have enough new stuff for several years... meh, wish never come true)

Nice to hear, FinDancer! Smile

hmm... I think there has been many great melodies, but the production part has not been taken seriously enough, and not enough time has been spent - though many has a great potential.

I have not a specific track that I have listened more than others... but I think I will remember DJ Maxwell's album most from 2011 (and IDP Compi Laughing out loud) - it has many great tracks (eventhough many are remixes/covers) + it's well produced.

Eventhough, it has been a nice year with promising new artists Smile ...and I look forward to hear what the next year brings - there's still many people that listen to italo/lento, and as long there is that italo will be alive!

Best Album - Dj Maxwell - Trust No One Part II
Best Compi - Dj Selection 326 - 2000 Hits vol. 16
Best Song must be from Trust No One vol. II, the Luca Noise albums or Gigi D'Agostino - Stay With Me...

You don't seriously think that Stay With Me is one of the highlights of this year?

My 2011 favorite is definitely DJ Cry feat. Daniele Meo – T.V.B.V. and all of the Sheby releases. Smile
Best albums were Trust No One Part II, Way of Life Vol. 2 & WYGO The Mixes and, of cause, Hoxygen - The Album
Luca’s rework of Vedo L'Amore (Luca Noise 011 Mix) I thought was brilliant Laughing out loud

Maybe we are so desperate that anything released by Gigi becomes the highlight of the year. :nose:

Stay With Me was really SUX, only Marani save it... The Version from Ieri e Oggi Mix Vol. 01 is 1000 times better
