Bugged Out! resident DJ, Turbo regular and Clouded Vision label boss Matt Walsh weaves his way through Blur, Primal Scream, The Prodigy and The Eyes In The Heat in a brief traverse through his musical past, present and future.

The first record I ever bought

The first piece of vinyl I bought myself was ‘Popscene’ by Blur, a track that still gets me excited every time I hear it now, 20 years on. Prior to that I was relying on my dad’s more traditional stadium rock taste. The beginning of Britpop started my real passion for music and record collecting.

The first time I remember hearing electronic music

I lived in Clacton-on-Sea as a child and there was a rave club called Oscars on the pier that was quite the destination back then. I went when I was about 14, around the release of the Prodigy’s Experience record. That record really got me into rave music and I became obsessed with the indie/dance crossover.

My favourite ever record

I’d have to say Screamadelica by Primal Scream. That was the beginning of dance music for me. I was pretty young when it came out but a couple of years later I was obsessed. Coming home from clubs during my university years in Nottingham I’d listen to it two or three times all the way through before I got to sleep.

The guaranteed floor filler

The Human League – ‘The Things That Dreams Are Made Of (Original Dub)’. Without a doubt, my most played record ever.
