Jamie XX - Girl (In Color album) 



Jamie XX's album "In Colour" is incredibly influential to me. The masterful production and genre-blending of house, UK garage, and techno create a unique and immersive sonic experience that resonates with me. It feels like a patchwork of influences that he's made into something completely unique that has the Jamie XX brand and that is what electronic music is about as a whole I think.


Disclosure - White Noise feat. Aluna George



Aluna was a former student at Pointblank Music College when I learned Electronic music composition and production. 'White Noise' was the first track we analysed before it was even released. I still remember how impressed I was with the sonic outcome of blending different arpeggiated synths together and the incredible use of pads. The entire album is still hugely influential for me, especially the collaboration with London Grammar and the Flume remix of You & Me.


Bjork - Oceania



I chose this track but to be honest it's really difficult to choose one Bjork track. I remember watching a documentary when I was still in school watching her doing field recordings on a beach in Reykjavik. I had no idea how impactful 'human' atmospheres can be on a track - it completely transcends pure electronic music.  


Blind Faith - Chase and Status 



Again genre blending and the deep emotive vocals by Liam Bailey made this a track that gave me chills each time I listened to it. You would never necessarily associate D&B with melodic elements and strings and yet Chase and Status did this masterfully, gaining commercial success at the same time.


Pjanoo - Eric Prydz 



Again very difficult to choose one track. I went for this one as it's more well known and it's a testament to less is more. Ultimately a catchy riff is all you need. Prydz's incredible blending of synths and production skills in conjunction with his uplifting and euphoric vibes make him definitely one of my most influential artists.
