What was the first record you bought that made you realize that you wanted to be a DJ / Producer?
Simple Minds – I travel – A track I’ve listened in club when I was more more young in my birth town a club opened the sunday afternoon only for the teenager and the Dj played the same tracks like the saturday night. This track is for me an incredible mix of tribal, electro and new wave vibes.
What record makes you most nostaligic?
Blondie – Atomic – One of the first 7 inch my mother bought to me but with my pocket money on a market place.
What is your favourite end of night record?
Sister Nancy – Bam Bam – Perfect to calm the dancefloor and why not for start an other party.
First time listened played by Rob Luis in Brighton at Phonic:Hoop party (long time ago)
Do you have a guilty pleasure record?
Sheila B Devotion – No No No – Because it’s an amazing french disco track. World succes. I like the groove of this 7 inch with the iconic singer Sheila.
What is your most treasured piece of vinyl?
Benny Bennet – Paris Mambo – A record from my grandmother collection.
Not so rare but treasure for me because it’s probably one of my first entry in tropical sound.
