As the year comes to an end, there are plenty of albums worth considering the best of the year. Here’s one that snuck onto my list in the (almost) last minute. I first came across Hashman Deejay‘s music through one of the best Hessle Audio shows of the year: the Pender Street Steppers special aired last summer. That’s really when I first got aware of Vancouver’s Mood Hut label and its associates, one of them being Hashman. Among the tracks played on the show that stuck with me in particular was “184”, and as life sometimes goes, I only re-discovered it by pure chance when going through this week’s Bleep newsletter. And this is where I came full circle, as the track is taken from Hashman Deejay’s new album “Sandopolis”, which is out now on Max D’s Future Times label.
