“My guilty pleasure? Pretty much any Phil Collins track…” Seb Zito talks us through his favourites.
The first time you remember hearing electronic music?
I was 12 years old on holiday with my parents and befriended a group of DJs and MCs who played on Dream FM. I didn’t particularly like their style of music but as soon as I was back in London I scoured the radio looking for alternative styles and discovered Chicago FM, which played house and garage.
Your favourite ever record?
24 Hour Experience – ‘All Nighter’. This was one of the first tracks of this style I ever heard and is still in my record bag today after 23 years, I think that says it all!
The guilty pleasure?
Pretty much any Phil Collins track.
The last track of the night?
Aztech Sol & Guided Methods – ‘Rugburns’. Such a lovely feeling track. The perfect end to the night!
The best chillout record?
The Pharcyde – Labcabincalifornia.
The soundtrack to a lazy Sunday afternoon?
Barrington Levy – ‘Murderer’. Thanks to my girlfriend I’m listening to more and more reggae. No other music even comes close to this vibe!
The record you’re proudest of?
My Flat 1 EP in my opinion is my best work to this day. ‘Holywell’ is a dancefloor banger which I never envisioned but my favourite is ‘Burnaby’, on which for the first time I truly managed to portray my feelings into a track.
