Ha­rangue the DJ Ross from Friends

The Guardian - The Guide - - Clubs -

The Colch­ester-raised pro­ducer of lo-fi house emp­ties the con­tents of his psy­chic record bag

The track I’ll be open­ing my next DJ set with E My­ers Hate

This track opens in such a sus­pi­cious and haunt­ing way, and boy when that bassline slaps it kicks like a mule.

The track I al­ways play to res­cue a dance­floor Ten City That’s The Way Love Is (Acieed Mix)

A con­tem­porar­ily rel­e­vant spin on a clas­sic hands-in-the-air banger. Cheesy enough to get peo­ple singing; acidic enough to get peo­ple weird.

The track I wish I’d signed to my la­bel Jai Paul Jas­mine

I’d have given this won­der­ful boy a good home on my la­bel and made sure he never had nothin’ leaked, capisce?! A re­ally well-pro­duced, very orig­i­nal piece of mu­sic.

The track I’d play to show off my eclec­tic tastes Ray­mond Guiot Prim­i­tive Spirit

I’m not much of a show-off, but as you’ve got me, here’s a lit­tle ditty from the world of French library mu­sic. Also sam­pled by Jamelia, on her world­wide smash DJ.

The track that’s been un­fairly slept on this year Scis­sor work Ra­di­a­tor

This hunk of a pro­ducer has been on my radar for such a long time. When I heard this track I kept ex­pect­ing him to have “blown up”. His pro­duc­tion is so well thought out.

The track that got me out of bed this morn­ing Ac­tress Fall­ing Ri­zlas

This track got me out of bed this morn­ing be­cause it gave me night­mares in my sleep that I was a dread­ful pro­ducer. I woke up in a cold sweat and re­alised that this night­mare was re­al­ity, and com­pared to this track I am a dread­ful pro­ducer.

The track I’d play at my aun­tie’s wed­ding UB40 Red Red Wine

The way I pic­ture it, every­one would be swill­ing red wine ev­ery­where re­joic­ing over the Ali Camp­bell cho­rus. This one’s for you, aun­tie Jus­tine!

The track I’d play at my funeral Kate Bush Breath­ing

Lovely Kate Bush singing me off as I’m frozen and shot out of a can­non into space. I can’t re­ally think of any­thing bet­ter

Ross from Friends plays In­vis­i­ble Wind Fac­tory, Liver­pool, Fri
