Ben White July Chart
Tried to keep my chart as fresh and summery as possible, and also not just copy Lee's as he's got some corking tunes in there - K-Hole, Hey! and Wolfen.  Although for the record the L-Vis mix is infinintely better than the Foamo one, and Wolfen is the worst track off the Baltic Pine EP.  In fact I feel so strongly about the Boy 8 Bit issue that I'm going to chart Baltic Pine just to prove that it's better.

#1: Boy 8 Bit - Definitely Not Wolfen (AKA Baltic Pine)
This is Music

#2: Julio Bashmore (Um Bongo's Revenge)

#3: Music De La Nick - Devil Will Ride

#4: Renaissance Man - What Is Guru
Sound Pellegrino

#5: Angger Dimas - Duck Army

#6: Emvee - Glitch Dub

#7: Cooly G - Love Dub Refix

#8: Melting Wing - Kingdom Nineteen
Erol Forum Massive Inc

#9: Miiike Snow - Animal (Fake Blood Remix)

#10: El - B - Serious

A little bit of a word from me now about number 3 - Gomez have long been a favourite band of mine, since pre their Mercury Prize, and this trip hop remix of their 'Devil Will Ride' song is seriously off the hook.  That funky little trumpet hook coupled with some serious breakbeatey rhythms and a hilarious sample from Superbad  equate to an absolute tune.  Plus Nick (of Music De La Nick, or possibly Ainse Dari, I lost track after the 8th name change) is a seriously sound guy.  So check out his myspace here, and download the tune here:

I'm so impressed with myself, while I was writing this post I had the tune playing on Itunes and then I loaded up Nick's myspace to get the address, and it started playing off there too, and now they're both playing perfectly in time.  I just beatmatched off Itunes and the myspace player. Does this make me the best DJ ever? Quite possibly.
