Leftfield – Melt

The first electronica album that blew my mind back in the 90s. It deeply influenced my taste as well as my way of understanding and producing music.

Metallica – Unforgiven

The soundtrack to my teens.

Bach – Cello Suite 1 in G Major

My first love with classical music. It helped me see how classical music is not so different from electronic music; only the tools have changed.

Bach - Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major BWV1007 - Mov. 1-3/6

Coltrane and Duke Ellington – In A Sentimental Mood

One of the many reasons I love jazz.

José González – Heartbeats

The best example of how a voice and an acoustic guitar can make you fly high.

Rufus and Chaka Khan – Ain’t Nobody

This is what got me into breakdancing and electronic music in the 80s.

Alex Medina and Tropical Barba – Going On

An album I’m super proud to have produced 10 years ago with a cheap microphone, an old computer and very rudimentary machines.

Movement Seventeen – Trialogue

My favorite ‘electronica meets classical’ album.

The Sky Was Pink – Holden Remix

A masterpiece that I always keep on my USB sticks, ready to close any big party. It’s probably my favourite tune of all time, it has strongly influenced my sound.

Rhythm & Sound – With The Artists

The album I most often choose when I need calm, it captures the essence of my love for dub.
