BADUIZM (1997, U N IVE RSAL)

Q (UK) - - Classic Album -

“My mother was one of the big­gest Erykah Badu fans and Baduizm was a huge in­flu­ence from my child­hood. This was an al­bum that I grew up on. I met Erykah at Coachella in 2011 when I was DJing at an XL party. There was no­body in the room apart from her and Solange. I played a song that she fea­tures on to sub­tly let her know that, ‘I love you, I ap­pre­ci­ate you.’ She danced up to the booth and turned up my mas­ter con­trol. Later she got me to open up for her at two shows. Get­ting to in­tro­duce her to my mum and take some pic­tures was re­ally epic.”
