“I was confused as to what I was hearing, but I knew I liked it.” From Motown to Moby, Carlo Lio talks us through his formative musical moments.
What’s the first record you ever bought?
The first time you remember hearing electronic music?
1988, in my uncle’s Trans-Am. I was confused as to what I was hearing, but I knew I liked it.
Your favourite ever record?
Ever? That’s almost impossible to answer. But if I have to pick one in electronic music, it would have to be the 1997 version of Hatiras – ‘The Anthem’. Such a mind-blowing piece.
The guaranteed floor-filler?
Warren Clarke – ‘Over You (Mr.G Remix)’.
The guilty pleasure?
80s music and freestyle, aka Gino beats!
The last track of the night?
Nina Kraviz – ‘I’m Week’.
The best chillout record?
Moby – ‘Porcelain’.
The best record for a family party?
Obviously it’s Lionel Richie – ‘All Night Long’.
The soundtrack to a lazy Sunday afternoon?
Would have to be MGMT, Oracular Spectacular.
