From UK garage to Scientist dubs via Rhythm & Sound and Technotronic, Sam Russo digs in his record box and pulls out some favourites for us.


What’s the first record you ever bought?

Ordinary People featuring Amigo – ‘The Message’ on Social Circles, 1998. I bought it from Vinyl Rhythm in Southend on Sea. I still have it, and it’s still in great condition, surprisingly.

The first time you remember hearing electronic music?

I can remember my dad playing Technotronic – ‘Pump Up The Jam’ when I was a kid. I can’t honestly say it gave me any known influence as I was extremely young and was more into G.I. Joe at the time!

The guaranteed floor-filler?

Something that has always worked for me is the ever impressive Claro Intelecto – ‘Peace of Mind’. It’s such a beautiful record, it works for the girls and the boys.

The last track of the night?

Lord Of The Isles – ‘Galicia’. This is such an amazing record. For me it has everything you need for the wind-down.
