1. Los Hermanos – In Deeper Presence
More known as the “Jaguar” track (by DJ Rolando)… in deeper presence, it is another one of many unforgettable classics from the Los Hermanos collective (originally founded by Dj Rolando & Gerald Mitchell).
2. Ignacio – Organa
Originally from 1997, and still fresher than ever – one of my all-time favourites! It’s as genius as it is simple.
3. Thom Yorke – The Eraser
One of the musical geniuses of our time. On top of my list to collaborate within the perfect world… he’s such an unlimited artist.
4. Model 500 – Deep Space (Full Album 1995)
Juan Atkins and Moritz Von Oswald changed the world of techno for good in 1995 as Model 500 releasing their ‘Deep Space’ LP
5. Depeche Mode – Enjoy the Silence
What else can I add?…
6. Jeff Mills – The Bells
My most personal influential techno artist of all time, there’s too many great tracks to choose from!
7. Convextion – Miranda
There are so many nostalgic memories playing this track… unforgettable moments and a time when techno was just a statement and not fashion.
8. Pearl Jam – Black
Not to compare, but I almost went with Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody here which I also adore, not only for the actual song but also for its story of breaching boundaries in all aspects. However, “Black” by Pearl Jam is such a personal song for me and symbolises a big part of my early years.
9. GALAXY 2 GALAXY – JOURNEY OF THE DRAGONS (UR 025)
Mad Mike (Mike Banks) with just one of his many masterpieces, this record is from the early 90s and is part of the Galaxy 2 Galaxy breakthrough album which featured many great artist for years to come and defined what we know as the “underground resistance” (UR) label and collective…
10. Josh Wink – How’s Your Evening So Far?
I can still remember listening to this record for the first time in the love parade in Tel Aviv when I was a very young DJ and I’m still playing it now 20 years later.
Shlomi Aber – Zohar EP (Redimension)
Be As One boss Shlomi Aber’s latest driving four-track release lands on Joseph Capriati’s Redimension imprint. The Barcelona-based Israeli artist has refined his ability to deliver sub thumping releases for more than a decade. With previous appearances on Bpitch and Figure, Aber aligns perfectly with Redimension’s roster which features the likes of Fur Coat, Anthony Parasole, Adam Beyer and label head himself, Joseph Capriati. ‘Zohar’ opens with cantering chords, solid analogue kicks and splashing cymbals before ‘Tora’ then follows with down pitched keys, tight rides, a rattling synth line and subtle risers. On the flip ‘Woodhill Grove’ bubbles with a dark arpeggiated lead, slicing percussion and crackling distortion noise when ‘Going Distance’ then closes with echoed stabs, zapping electronic hits, swung drums and hissing hats.
