Albums
Moderat - Moderat (Bpitchcontrol)
Mirko Loco - Seventynine (Cadenza)
Damian Lazarus - Smoke the Monster Out (Get Physical)
The Black Dog - Further Vexations
Circlesquare - Songs About Dancing and Drugs (K7)

EP/Singles
Guy J - Lamur (Bedrock)
Cobblestone Jazz - Traffic Jam/Fiesta (Wagon Repair)

You can compare it with Beatport's Top 50 Downloads/Sales, Top 50 Charted by DJs, Resident Advisor's Top 50 for June, and Little White Earbuds' various Top 5s.
