Cluster – Zuckerzeit (full album)
Perfect for after the party. Playing this on repeat all the time.
DBX – Losing Control
The granddaddy of many great tracks IMO.
Blawan – 993
I could talk for hours about the kick and the synths on this track.
LFO – Whistle While You Jerk
The sound design and the drum programming still sound soooo modern.
Planetary Assault Systems – Rip The Cut
The Kick, the Synths, the heavily distorted hat. The sound design of every element seems so fresh. And the drops!! .. I show this track to everyone all the time.
Black to Comm – Seven Horses for Seven Kings (full album)
Discovery of the year 2019 for me. Still showing this to a lot of people.
WAX – 50005 A1
Those pads!! I have a lot of personal stuff attached to this one. Definitely an after hours track for me.
The Mole – Hippy Speedball
I like to play this one to people before, during and after any event. Makes me smile and dance.
György Ligeti – Requiem
I didn’t grow up in a classical-music environment. So I first came in touch with György Ligetis music by watching 2001: A Space Odyssey by Kubrick. During my studies I grew to appreciate the complexity of this music and that you need dozens of incredibly talented musicians to perform/recreate this piece. Contrary to the intellectual challenge of composing/performing something like this, it evokes very primal emotions in me.
Alva Noto – U_04
I listen to this track on every sound system. You hear every little flaw, not only in your system but also with the compression algorithm. I love to show this one to people.
