Carly Simon – Why (12inch version)
Great track. It was produced by Chic during the period dance and disco music was moving into synthesizers and drum machines. Bellissimo!
Hot Chip – Easy To Get
One of my favourite artists of all time, this track is a dance party starter. when this album came out, my pals and I would rinse it on the regular.
Shlohmo – Later
I’ve probably listened to the Shlohmo catalogue 1 billion times. Incredible rhythms, texturally amazing plus spooky vibes. This was a big favourite of mine during early morning after parties.
Toro Y Moi – Rose Quartz
This record is from one of my favourite albums of all time, big fan of everything from Toro including he’s “Les Sins” project. Rose Quartz sonically is bliss; it has a romantic feel also and as with all Toro stuff it’s beautifully produced. Really dope music video also!
Azari & III – Manic
My brother and I loved this album growing up and just getting into production. this album started my love of classic drum machines.
Marshall Jefferson vs. Noosa Heads – Mushrooms (Justin Martin Remix)
Justin Martin is a don. This track was in my first ever Beatport cart. My buds and I would regularly ring out Justin Martin mixes once returning home from being in a club all night. I took my name from a Justin Martin song.
Mount Kimbie – Blind Night Errand
I’m a huge fan of everything from Mount Kimbie! This is really the ideal song if you wanna get weird and dance.
Burial – Archangel
Can’t write anything about Burial, which hasn’t already been said. When I first found this album I listened to it every day for 6 months.
Mark Henning – Jilted Love
My good pal of mine showed me this when I was 19 I think, it’s a track that really opened my eyes to house music. Still a favourite of mine to put on during a session.
Tipper – Tiny Face
I’d religiously rinse everything from Tipper when I first began listening to electronic music and getting started with music production. The sound design and track concepts would flip me out and they still do honestly. This record in particular was a favourite of mine for many years when I was younger.
