It is time for us at Asse Zeta to draw some conclusions on this 2019… Musically! Lot’s of good things have been produced and it is always difficult for us to boil everything down to set of Top 5s (as Rob Gordon thought us) in the following categories: LP, Single or EP, Compilation or Mix.

The entries of this year have been put together by our three shows:
Asse Zeta cured by Zio
Stereotype cured by Manuel a.k.a. Sidechange
Asse Mono cured by Grgn

In addition each show had to pick their label of the year. This year the family had to pick up their spiritual guide for 2019 (last year was the Bug) and provide a Top 5 of recommendations, Asse Biased, which include some of our best friends production for this year almost gone.

As you can read it was a rather difficult process! We hope you will discover something new or find some certainties or being in completely disagreement with us! In any case, let us know what do you think about it!
