“Coldplay? It’s like just endless variations of the one same shitty song. Please stop.” The Feel Music boss talks us through his all-time favourites. And least favourites.

What’s the first record you ever bought?

It was the Hits 1 album. I still have it. So many great tracks. ‘Careless Whisper’, ‘I Feel For You’, ‘Lost In Music’, ‘Jump’, ‘Thriller’… I could go on. Pop music sure ain’t what it used to be.

The first time you remember hearing electronic music?

It was 2 Unlimited – ‘Get Ready For This’ in the car with my dad, in a car park somewhere. It was an eye opener. Later my cousin got deep into 2 Unlimited. He used to write down the raps and learn them off so he could rap along with the tape. Fortunately I had discovered The Orb by then.

Your favourite ever record?

If I had to, right now I’d say I Want You by Marvin Gaye. But that will change tomorrow.

The guaranteed floor-filler?

Instant House – ‘Awade’. Especially here in Galway. It will get the dance heads and the hippies going in equal measure.
