Die Antwoord - "Wat Pomp" - $o$: "South Africa raps in the house." - DJ Inti

Including South Africa's Die Antwoord (above), these are, in no particular order, some of the artists and their accompanying songs (videos) that DJ Inti, who works at Amoeba Music Berkeley, was feeling during 2010. As a self-described "singles/12's kind of dude," these choices are more song-based than album- based and include such diverse artists as hella prolific hometown hip-hopper Lil B, French producer on an Irish label (All City) Onra, and Brooklyn based Das Racist featuring San Francisco transplant Victor Vazquez & Queens-born Himanshu Suri along with their always-entertaining hype man Dap. Most of the videos include quick comments by DJ Inti plus the artist name & song title.

Chico Mann - "Ya Yo Se" - Analog Drift: "Really feeling this album right now." - Inti

Washed Out - "Feel It All Around" - Life of Leisure: "Mellowed out, slowed down boogie samples." - Inti

Hubert Daviz - "Pa Vale (Prima Parte)" - Proceduri De Rutina: "Some chilled out niceness." - Inti

Onra - "Long Distance": "Boogie from France." - Inti

Lil B - "It's Okay To Be Different" - Rain in England: "Berkeley weird ass future rap released on a noise label. About nothing but himself." - Inti

And DJ Inti's honorable mentions of 2010:

El Guincho - "Bombay" - Pop Negro on Young Turks

Das Racist - "Ek Shaneesh" - Shut up, Dude mixtape
