We asked him to pick his Top 5 tunes that inspired me to become a DJ/Producer.

Fatboy Slim – Right Here, Right Now

Like many people, Norman Cook was a huge reason I got into electronic music, sampling and djing in general. It goes without saying it’s a classic that was like nothing else I’d ever heard before. Growing up I played in many different bands of various genres from Metal, funk and jazz but ‘Right Here, Right Now’ really opened my eyes to different styles of music and how they can be made.

Groove Armada – Superstylin’

This is just a full-on banger and always goes off. When I first heard this track it really got me into the idea of djing and playing parties. For me, it is still House but has a classic Groove Armada sound.

Breach – Jack

What is there to say about this track, it was everywhere and was inescapable. I first heard this track while I was djing at my first residency gig and it just blew me away. It really introduced me to a whole other side of house music. The minimal sound of Dirtybird the power of the bass and the catchy vocal are all still things I try and implement in my music now. 

Hifana – Fresh Push Breakin’ – Intro (No Sequence Fresh Push Mix)

Not sure if many people know of this duo, I first saw them on a Nike shoe advert and I just had to look into them more. Their use of samples and glitching was something I took away and still use in my music. Not so much the glitching but how to get the most out of a sample rather than just taking it on face value. (Also seriously check out that advert, it’s all really played live with effects strips built into the shoes!).

Shadow Child – So High

I had always been a huge fan of Simon Neale’s Dave Spoon alias and sadly didn’t realise he was Shadow Child for a while. Once I heard this track though I was fully onboard and still am. He just has a way of finding the best drums and making such simple catchy basslines. One everyone should definitely check out! 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
