French electro-pop producer Maud Geffray talks us through her formative musical influences and all-time favourites.

What’s the first record you ever bought?

It was Madonna, ‘Live To Tell’. I loved Madonna when I was a little girl and it was the first maxi I could buy with my own money.

The first time you remember hearing electronic music?

In a rave party near my city of birth. The DJ was playing incredible tracks – it was totally new to my ears and i remember particularly Future Sound Of London’s ‘Papua New Guinea’.

Your favourite ever record?

Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works, especially the track ‘Heliosphan’. It was the first electronic album I ever heard, and I had a real shock.

The guilty pleasure?

‘Call Me Maybe’ from Carly Rae Jepsen. The gimmick is irresistible.

The last track of the night?

John Tejada – ‘The End Of It All’. I love finishing a very late DJ set with that track.

The best chillout record?

Philip Glass – Einstein On The Beach. An incredible contemporary opera. It lasts about four and a half hours.

The record you’re proudest of?

1994, a piece of video and music I released two years ago on Pan European. It’s rare footage of a rave party that I edited with an original soundtrack I did.

The future classic?

I would love to say ‘Polaar’, the first extract from my album.
