Best Albums of 2019

Over the past 12 months we have overindulged in a vast array of consistently on-point long players from artists both new and old. As with tradition we have compiled what we believe to be the best albums of 2019.

Jenus

Ahead of HER DAMIT and the debut edition of 7001 Festival this summer in Germany, we caught up with former Ostgut Ton label manager Jenus Baumecker-Kahmke to learn more about his musical heritage, love of vinyl and his involvement with the music and art world in London and Berlin. Jenus’ mix is a deep sonic journey into the realms of ambient and electro-acoustic music.
