Kate Bush releases are increasingly rare, so news of a new one is always welcome - especially after I bought Under The Ivy: The Story of Kate Bush last night and even if Director's Cut is a collection of reworked catalogue songs.

You've gotta love the end-of-year list - or in this case, a "beginning-of-year" list of last year's most significant singles.
Here are the fifty "songs" (even the "tracks" here are more than just "funk-tional") that lit up my life and sparked my senses in 2010 (my Top 50 albums will be up soon).
And to borrow a disclaimer from the radical Sonic Router: "This list is not definitive. Tomorrow it would most likely be different..."

The Pan African Space Station is a fascinating project currently happening in Cape Town. Inspired by Sun Ra’s aphorism, “There are other worlds out there they never told you about,” PASS is “a cross-cultural and cyber-spatial exploration bringing together diverse pan-African sounds, from ancient techno to future roots.”
This year’s programme includes amazing musos like Dr. Philip ‘Malombo’ Tabane, Thandiswa Mazwai and Camerounian drummer Brice Wassy, and a back-to-back DJ master class featuring Theo Parrish and Sowetan cutmaster Mbuso T.
