2011 – Year of Blawan!

beat junk producer of the year, Blawan. Blawan’s style is a lot of stomping brontosaurus noises, long-throated Jackie Treehorn sexfunk, meant to be listened to while naked on a trampoline on a beach next to a phosphorescent ocean. Blawan’s not on my top ten for 2011. Blawan was 2011!
