Fatboy Slim's live sets are insanely good and better than most of his self-produced stuff.

Oh yeah, I like RJD2 a whole helluva lot. And Danger Mouse, as well. Come to think of it, I'm not so sure that the Basement Jaxx are really DJs? Anyway, I'm floored by The Avalanches Since I Left You and their Japanse-only release, At Last Alone. I don't see how SILY can be knocked out of my top 5 come 2010.

Its so hard to differentiate a good DJ from a good producer. I guess I'll give credit to florida native Markus Schulz

Deep Dish

I can't get enough of their stuff lately! If you're into house music, then these guys, as well as some of their proteges like Luke Fair, are the ones to check out.

Jon Carter - doesn't let the listener/dancer down, mixes a lot of different genres and keeps the music chuggin'

Miss Kitten - gritty and unpredictable

Layo & Bushwacka! - Glastonbury set as heard on Radio 1 a couple of summers ago, was downright amazing, nothing like the albums they have made, which although great, their DJ sets are alot fiercer.

I have the I Com promo in my stack of to-be-listened-to albums. Is this worth moving up?

I'm not sure, since I haven't heard it. The UK magazine 'Muzik' had a mix album of hers that she produced for them, and it's one of the best mixes I have heard. Jon Carter also did one for 'Muzik' and that as well is kickin'
