Can't quite give 10 gigs, but my top 5 albums of 2007 (not in order):

Attack Decay Sustain Release-Simian Mobile Disco (Wichita)
Idealism-Digitalism (Kitsune)
Chicago, Detroit, Redruth-Luke Vibert (Planet Mu)
Rushup Edge-The Tuss (Rephlex)
Volume One-Ceephax (Rephlex)

Best EP: Ub3r L33t N00b Br34k5-Mr. Spastic (8 Bit Peoples)

Best Reissue: Book Of Dogma (Soma)

Including Battles, 808 State's acid reunion and the massive Gescom EP, you have a pretty good year there!

Hi James, sounds like you made the most of your Europe trip with gigs :)
Model 500 was part of the TodaysArt Festival, on 21 September. Needless to say, absolutely fantastic. Magic Juan Atkins' band was joined by Mike UR Banks (who played in Galaxy2Galaxy just before the Model500 gig) on keys.
It was an evening of High Tech Jazz, Funk & Soul!!
