1. Massive Attack ‘Mezzanine’ Album
What an album. The guy who engineered this album actually taught me down in Brighton! He taught me the ins and outs of using hardware gear in the studio.
2. Paul Simon ‘Boy In The Bubble’ and ‘Graceland’
Brings back my childhood every time I hear this song. A real 80’s gem and so unique for its time. Paul Simon actually went to South Africa to record most of this album then came back to America to chop, edit and do the final mix down.
3. Chemical Brothers ‘Surrender’ Album
One of my favourite live electronic bands that I was actually lucky enough to see live at Glastonbury and the visuals were just on another level. Great album, full of hits.
4. The Stone Rose ‘Waterfall’
Being one of the pioneering groups of the Manchester Movement and regarded as one of the greatest British albums ever recorded. This is one of my favourite tracks from the album.
5. Kate Bush ‘The Whole Story’ Album
This album also brings back fond childhood memories with my mum playing it on cassette in the car. I can still picture her singing ‘Wuthering Heights’ in the car on the way to the shops.
6. Primal Scream ‘Loaded’
Amazing song and also part of the Manchester Movement. I love the work of the sampling and production in it. It’s a great tune to play after a heavy night DJ-ing in a club.
7. INXS ‘Kick’ Album
My older brother’s first piece of vinyl and I’d always sneak into his room when he was out to play it on his battered old record player. This album was actually their sixth studio album and the best, I think. All of the tracks on this album are amazing but ‘Mystify’ is one of my favourites.
8. Metallica ‘The Black Album’ Album
Love love love ‘The Black Album’. Of course I have all of their albums but when Bob Rock got together with Metallica to bring out their full potential you can hear the hours of work that went into this piece of art.
9. Prince ‘Purple Rain’
I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t like this song. The emotion behind this record is impeccable. If you haven’t heard this song then you haven’t lived.
10. Rolling Stones ‘Paint It Black’
This song always reminds me of the Vietnam war and I think mainly because it was used on the ‘Tour Of Duty’ TV show but you can’t go wrong with a bit of Rolling Stones. One of the best rock bands ever to grace our planet and still to this day they are great performers.
