“First time I heard electronic music? A cassette tape my uncle gave me. I listened to that, loved it of course… the rest is history.” Andrea Oliva runs us through his all-time favourites.

What’s the first record you ever bought?

Bob Sinclar‘s Champs Elysees album on Defected Records. I bought the album pack of this, but who can forget ‘I Feel For You’?

The first time you remember hearing electronic music?

From a cassette tape my uncle gave me. He was a producer of ambient and chillout music, and I was only around 11 years old at the time. I listened to that, loved it of course and then that just made me want to find out a lot more about electronic music. The rest is history.

Your favourite ever record?

DJ Rolando‘s ‘Knights of the Jaguar’ on Underground Resistance. This track is the very essence of Ibiza and sounds as good today as the day it was made. I still play it in a lot of my sets.

The guaranteed floor­filler?

Oxia – ‘Domino’ on Kompakt. It just never fails – another timeless classic.

The last track of the night?

Donna Summer – ‘I Feel Love’. Made in 1977 and still played the world over today. Recognised by all – is there a better track to close with?

The record everyone loves but you hate?

There are too many of these to mention, especially as my heart lies in the underground.

The best record for a family party?

Lucio Battisti – ‘Acqua Azzurra, Acqua Chiara’. Anyone coming from a big Italian family like mine would understand.
