La Playlist de Ross From Friends

La Playlist de Ross From Friends

Le producteur britannique Ross From Friends alias Felix Clary Weatherall est le dernier artiste signé chez Flying Lotus. Le jeune homme de 24 ans a une poignée de sorties à son actif, influencé par la culture Hip-Hop, Eurobeat des années 80, Hi-NRG et Italo. Il sera en live ce vendredi à The Peacock Society !

À cette occasion il nous a préparé une playlist de ses dix morceaux qui ont marqué son enfance.

“All of these tracks give me that unbelievably special nostalgic feeling that shoots me back to a certain point in my childhood.”

Proxyon – Space Travellers

One of my Dad’s old records. And similar to the music he used to make. That Hi-NRG sound.

OFF – Time Operator

This one stuck with me, not only because my Dad would play it all the time, but because the vocal was so weird in it.

Front 242 – Welcome To Paradise

I listen back to this now and don’t remember it being so heavy, which is surprising because I can’t imagine a kid being into that. I remember as a kid being really shocked because it said the word ‘sex’ in it.

Sasha – Magnetic North

This album first got me into that ‘glitchy’ digital sound when I was a kid. I remember trying to find something that was anywhere similar to this album after that. This was a really memorable track from it.

Prefuse 73 – Dabrye 73.3 Megamix

This was a really early file that I pulled from Limewire when I was into that. I didn’t really know what the music was at all, who the artist was or what a megamix was but it put me on to Prefuse 73 and Dabrye as a boy.

Biggie Smalls – If I Should Die Before I Wake

When I was a kid my Dad burnt this ‘gangster’ CD with a selection of hip-hop tunes on it. Me and my sister always loved listening to it on long car journeys. Me and my sis once were hounding my dad to put it on once when my Nan was in the car but it was obviously not appropriate.

N.E.R.D – She Wants To Move

Another one from the gangster CD. My dog used to go mad at the bark sample at the start of this.

The KLF – Justified and Ancient

My Dad had this really early mp3 player that me and my sister always borrowed. I remember hearing this song once on shuffle and me and my sis were both obsessed for it for ages.

Erasure – Joan

Erasure were my favourite band at one point as a kid and my Mum bought me this CD. This was the first CD I owned I think.

Arctic Monkeys – I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor

Arctic Monkeys definitely started my trajectory into listening to guitar music into my teens. And where I learnt my first musical instrument; guitar.
