The best record for a family party?
DJ Morpheus: The Temptations – ‘Papa Was A Rolling Stone’ or Prince – ‘Sign Of The Times’. Everybody loves it – young and old members of the family, they all do.
The soundtrack to a lazy Sunday afternoon?
DJ Morpheus: Manuel Göttsching – E2 – E4 or the K&D Sessions remixes album on K7.
Mahk: Robert Haigh – ‘Valentine Out Of Season’. Minimal piano instrumental music from the mid 80s. As far as I’m concerned, Robert Haigh is one of the unsung heroes of English music of the past 30 years or so, and a huge influence on the music I’ve done over the years. After spending most of the 80s producing some amazing experimental and minimal music, he reinvented himself as Omni Trio, one of the pioneers of the emerging jungle and drum and bass scenes in the early 90s.
The worst record you’ve ever heard?
DJ Morpheus: There are many of those around. Like ‘Barbie Girl’ – I forgot the artist name of the one hit wonders – or that 2 Unlimited (or 2 Untalented as Mixmaster Morris used to call them…) “techno techno techno” track. Or this annoying Korean million-seller ‘Gangnam Style’.
Mahk: Far too many to single out one.
The record you’re proudest of?
DJ Morpheus: Can’t answer that!
Mahk: It’s usually the one I’ve just finished working on. Last year I started producing techno again after a break of nearly 20 years. I’m especially pleased with one of the tracks on a 12″ coming out in the summer on Berlin label aufnahme + wiedergabe.
The future classic?
DJ Morpheus: Anything by Flako.
Mahk & Morpheus’s ‘Desert’ is out now on Souvenir with remixes from Danton Eeprom and Juju & Jordash.
