“It signifies a massive change in who I am as a person and as an artist.” Jozif talks us through the tracks that made him the man he is today.
The first time you remember hearing electronic music?
It was around 1994 and my older brother, who was running illegal acid techno parties at the time in the back of a pub, played me some stuff that almost made me wanna throw up. I thought it was godawful as up till that point I had been listening to hip-hop and Guns N Roses! A year later I had a set of SoundLab DLP1s and was record shopping!
Your favourite ever record?
It’s kinda impossible to answer this as it changes all the time depending on where I am in my life. There’s a couple of records that I can listen to over and over and again and never get tired of them but I’m not sure that makes them my favourite…?
Prodigy – ‘Poison’
Fat Back Band – ‘Let the Drums Speak’
Kenny Hawkes – ‘Sleaze Walking (Rob-in Fu**ing Remix)’
Odyssey – ‘Back To My Roots’
The guilty pleasure?
I don’t have any, to be honest. Sounds a bit silly but I don’t feel guilty bout any of them – even Rick Astley!
