Five 'desert island' albums


#64

El-P: Fantastic Damage
Autechre: Exai
Frank Zappa: Hot Rats
Pet Shop Boys: Actually
Björk: Medulla

Huh, that was really hard… I’m terrible at choosing.
Oh, and everybody picking AE, haha.


#65

Fantastic Damage. I think my brain might have the shape of that record. Or was it my heart. Absolutely love it!!!


#66

“if you must” is from “both sides…!”

Del’s “Funkman” is also among my favorite albums. Less p-funk-ripped beats, more Del creativity.

“i wish my brother…” was just too much stolen p-funk with cheesy young Del rhymes. IMO.

he aged like fine cheese.

lol. glad you’re re-listening to some Del. “straight from the big bad west coast” is now playing over here


#67

«The cologne that i wear is called napalm in the morning air»!


#68

bjork - debut
NIN - the downward spiral
FSOL - dead cities
gorillaz - demon days
the cure - disintegration


#69

Mr Bungle excellent !


#70

Stupid robot :wink:


#71

Aphex: SAW 85-92
Aldo Ciccolini’s Satie: Gymnopedies
The Millennium: Begin (or Paul McCartney: RAM)
Jorge Ben: Força Bruta
Jimmy Buffet: A-1-A (I see you judging me)

This was an interesting exercise for me. I went by choosing what has the best memories attached, not by what I listen to all the time. If I’m going to be stuck on an island, I’ll probably want to remember important moments and people in my life.

coldcut journeys by dj is imo the finest mix tape of all time. it’s a masterpiece :ok_hand:
was a massive reference for me back in my djing days.

I ended up supporting em when they played in dublin around '99-“ish”.
