Ahead of the release of his second album Human Touch, Grum picks his top tracks from mullet-bearing 80s synthpop to hard-hitting basslines from Duke Dumont.

What’s the first record you ever bought?

I don’t actually remember, ashamedly. I guess I was part of the Soulseek generation so had already amassed a huge library before even buying anything. I did have various phases of obsession with different records; maybe an early one was the first Stone Roses album. ‘She Bangs the Drums’ will always be an all-time favourite.

The first time you remember hearing electronic music?

The very first thing I remember was being left to my own devices at my aunt’s house as a kid and going through her CD collection. I found some Roni Size and Goldie stuff and was hooked. Seems a bit unlikely considering what I produce now, but there you go. It was probably something like ‘Inner City Life’ which I liked the most.

Your favourite ever record?

This is something which I think changes for everyone through life. At the moment I’m incredibly into capturing the excitement and possibilities of pure electronic music. I reckon Orbital’s brown album personifies that perfectly, my favourite tracks being ‘Lush 3-1‘ or ‘Halcyon’.

The guilty pleasure?

Icehouse – ‘Electric Blue’ is my ultimate guilty pleasure. Perfect 80s production and songwriting equals pure enjoyable cheese!
