Here, he gives us a glimpse into his record collection, as we put some questions to him re: his most influential records…
OTB: Your all-time favourite club track?
KC Flightt – Let’s Get Jazzy (Dope Mix)
This one could last for hours for me, the groove is unbelievable, no word about the bassline, impressed by the use of the jackin vocals, a masterpiece!
OTB: The track you’ve finished a set with the most often?
Chicken Lips – He not In (Club)
It starts slowly from a little percussive groove, and suddenly goes into a “hands up” moment, it’s like it’s made to close a party in the best way.
OTB: The track you cleared the floor with (what happened when?)
Basement Jaxx – Red Alert
I can’t forget, summer of 99, and I still can’t forget! I don’t think it was the record’s fault, I loved it, but on that soundsystem the high frequencies with that tune where unbearable! A few moments later and it was too late 🙁
OTB: The track you rescued a floor with?
Robert Hood presents Floorplan – Funky Soul (Original Mix)
You can play this track in a house set, you can play it in a techno set, you can play it whenever. Every single dancefloor will raise up!
OTB: The cheesiest/ guiltiest secret track you love?
Chicks on Speed – Wordy Rappinghood
It just puts a smile on my face. Good memories about that track from a few parties too 🙂
OTB: The track that everyone else loved that you hated?
Howling – Smells like teen spirit
I think there are some untouchable things in music… that one was one of them for me.
OTB: The track that you loved that everyone hated?
Rebolledo – Pitaya Frenesí (Vocal Version)
It’s “different” fresh stuff that gave me emotions, but I discovered that it doesn’t have the same effect on most of the people I had around.
OTB: Anything you’d like plugging?
Ricardo Villalobos – Waiworinao
No words needed for this 8 minutes of love 🙂
Federico Grazzini’s ‘I Like That’ is out now on Monza Ibiza Records
