The Air Between Words was released in June and represented Martijn Deykers first release on Ninja Tune. The album is a rich tapestry of techno, house and bass which benefits from slick production, with crunching beats blended with slick synth lines whilst being underpinned by meaty basslines. This album excels when Martyn experiments, and this is evident in his collaboration with Copeland, with the standout track, The Love Of Pleasure, which has been a personal favourite of mine all year. The Air Between Words is an album that I've enjoyed listening to a lot this year.
