John Monkman talks us through his top tracks.
What’s the first record you ever bought?
Hahaha.. Possibly Chakademus and Pliars – “Tease Me” – I remember making my mum play it on repeat on the school run.
Your favourite ever record?
Aphex Twin – ‘Come to Daddy’ EP
Track – ‘Flim’
The guaranteed floor-filler?
My recent release ‘Massai’ seems to be doing the business.
The best chillout record?
Kruder & Dorfmeister – ‘Dj-Kicks’ was a staple post party choice.
Track – ‘Spell bound’ – Tango
The soundtrack to a lazy Sunday afternoon?
Tend not to listen to music on Sundays, I usually head for an audiobook or podcast.
The best record for a family party?
‘This Must Be The Place (Psychemagik edit)’ – Talking heads. Never fails to bring people together.
The record you’re proudest of?
My upcoming release on Ellum ‘Tune In Turn On’ – I really wanted to create a record that sounded fresh and hopefully unpredictable .. I had to really work not to do what I always do.
The future classic?
Tune In Turn on…ha 🙂
