“To see Jamie Jones playing my music for the first time and seeing the crowd’s reaction sent goosebumps all over my body. That’s why I make music.” Leftwing & Kody talk us through their all-time favourites.

What’s the first record you ever bought?

Leftwing: The first record I ever bought was called M-Dubs – ‘Over You’. I hammered the shit out of it and it’s still one of my favourite tracks.

Kody: First record that was bought for me was the Never Ending Story soundtrack by Limahl. I’ve still got that on vinyl somewhere. The first album I bought myself was It Takes Two by Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock.

The first time you remember hearing electronic music?

L : That’s a hard one. I think the first time I ever heard it was when all those illegal raves were happening in the 80s. I remember seeing it on the news – all the locals compaining about the noise. I would love to experience one of those parties.

K: First memory of hearing electronic music was probably something by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, which my parents played a lot. They were a band that used a lot of synths and electronic drums in their music.

Your favourite ever record?

L: That’s so hard to say, favourite record ever, but one of my all time favourites is The Mamas & The Papas – ‘California Dreaming’.

K: My favourite record is difficult to choose but I always seem to go for ‘Paint It Black’ by The Rolling Stones. There’s just something about that song that covers all the bases.

The last track of the night?

L: Hands down, Nathan Fake – ‘The Sky Was Pink (James Holden Remix)’. We have closed so many sets with this, but the most memorable was closing Watergate in Berlin at 11am, a gig I will never forget.

K: It’s a toss up between two Booka Shade Records, either ‘Mandarine Girl’ or ‘In White Rooms’. The chord progressions in both those tracks are insane and pull the heart strings.
