La Haine - Cut Killer "Nique La Police"
I remember obsessing about scene from La Haine, rewinding the video tape over and over and over. One of the catalysts that sparked my interest to DJ without a shadow of a debut.
Jon Hopkins - Insides (live at the ICA, London)
Jon Hopkins is truly a master of his craft. Live he takes things to another spectrum, as demonstrated here.
Einstürzende Neubauten - Live in Oslo 1983
'I was lucky enough to see Einstürzende Neubauten live Dirty Three curated ATP in 2007. The sear power of their performance was almost tangible. This footage I've selected, would have been around the time of their 1984 ICA show where they drilled through the stage. Up there with the Faust gig where they reportedly maced the audience through a giant fan!'
Kraftwerk – Computer Love (Live 1981)
'Electronic music at it's finest from the classic Kraftwerk line up. Can someone teleport me back to 1981 please?'
Dirty Three: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
One of my favourite live bands by a long shot, Dirty Three go that extra mile every time. I actually tried to find live footage of their incredible track 'She Passed Through' but had no luck. Thankfully I stumbled upon this Tiny Desk session which is the cats whiskers!'
Björk – Pluto live
'There really is nobody like Bjork. She is an absolute powerhouse both live and in the studio. Lifted from the Homogenic album, 'Pluto' is a special track for me. Reminds me of a my time DJ'ing in Chamonix where I played it as my last track and the place went berserk!'
DJ Shadow - Organ Donor live
'Shadow at his best. As for many others 'Endtroducing' is a landmark electronic album, at the time of release it flattened everything in it's path and listening again today there are few albums that stand has tall on the influential ladder.'
