Marc Dosem picks the tracks which inspire him, explaining the influence of Vangelis’s Blade Runner soundtrack and tipping a KiNK remix for big things this summer.
What’s the first record you ever bought?
I think it was something from Mike Oldfield probably. Tubular Bells is a standout favourite.
The first time you remember hearing electronic music?
The Blade Runner soundtrack by Vangelis. Absolutely stunning. It still blows me away to this day. The soundtrack and film were so far ahead of their time that for me – and many other producers – I’ve always drawn upon it as an influence.
Your favourite ever record?
The Future History album by Joris Voorn released on SINO in the early 2000s. I think the techy progressive sound of the album was such a stark contrast to the clinical minimal techno which was prevalent in the mid noughties. Joris has elements of funk, soul and a groove running throughout this offering which made it stand out in comparison.
The guaranteed floor-filler?
A secret edit I have of Robbie Ribera’s ‘Get On The Floor’. It’s one of a few special mixes I’ve done which only I own and which I save for those real special moments on the dancefloor. With so much music being shared these days it’s nice to just keep some sounds for yourself and those on the dancefloor. I’ve been lucky so far that no one has ripped my sets and taken these tracks. Here’s the original.
