I like this!

Recently made a list, maybe some of you read it.

Circus Overdrive by Hit 'n Run Soundsystem @ Undercurrent. 12/01. Hardcore / Gabber / DnB rave with a impressive sound setup. Very loud yet still with a good sound (no reverberating room issues), sparse and roomy location, sober lighting, perfect. Seeing everyone flee while the Japanese began with their Breakcore set was a great thing to witness.

Dälek @ Db's. 14/04.

OAKE @ Poing. 01/11. Calm on record, but very much metal and noise live. Most intense & cathartic performance I've seen in a long time, felt like a re-awakening. Rest of the night was great to being with a weirded techo crowd not knowing how to react to non-danceable music.

Le Guess Who festival @ Utrecht. 09/11. Great: Christopher C. King playing obscure Greek folk records in a church. The Bug with Flowdan and Manga, very loud dub, very very loud with proper MC'ing. Rabih Beaini DJing industrial records and sounds yet still able to dance. Not so great: Lasse Marhaug, boring ambient and boring performance.

above all
Acrelid ‎– Illegal Rave Tapes - The Complete Series 1999​-​2012 10xCS boxset
ASC - Realm Of The Infinite & Realm Of The Void
Sam KDC ‎– Omen Rising

very very good
OBS.BLK 03 / OBS HS 15 / OBS.27
Pureanalog 0,5
Iron Sight - Chapter Two- The Broken Son 2xCS
Pharmakon ‎– Devour

also very good
Matriarchy Roots ‎– Changing Habits CS
Haraam ‎– Live In Moscow CS
Lingua Ignota ‎– Caligula
Headless Horseman – Headless Horseman 008
Stave ‎– PI07
Gore Tech ‎– Geist Fibre
Stazma The Junglechrist - 10 Years Of Breaking Things
Kap Bambino ‎– Dust, Fierce, Forever
Bethaniens Dust & Tenshun - Pondering / Desolation

Other good things:
Incapacitants the movie.
Listening even more to podcasts.
Seeing someone breakdance at the music of Lingua Ignota in public. Very random as there was no public, yet very cool to see.

Not so great / worst:
Rinse.FM quitting The Grime Show.
OAKE ‎– 47019 EP. Not bad just a whole lot underwhelming.
Passing of Michiel Eikenaar (frontman Nihill and Dodecahedron).
Meager year for Grime releases, but I see a lots of good things will be happening in 2020.
Noise and electronic music spoiling metal for me.
UK Drill.
