One Hundred Project : Liam D (Feelmusic)
What is on your stereo at the moment?
The LP that's really melting my face at the moment is the new 'Computer Incarnations for World Peace 2' LP on Sonar Kollectiv. A beautiful collection of downtempo house, balearic vibes and soul-filled melodies. Better than volume one
3 records that changed your life. Why?
Parallel Universe by 4Hero
ground breaking drum and bass that stands the test of time.
Talking Book by Stevie Wonder
It Take a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back - Public Enemy
A rallying call, with conscious lyrics and legendary beats.
What are you looking forward to?
Festival season in Europe. Partying on Croatian beaches or dancing round a tent in the English countryside. Cannot be beat.
What couldn't you live without? Why?
The obvious answer is music, the less obvious answer is my MacBook.
Most memorable gig?
Chaka Khan, Hammersmith Odeon London, 1985. Unreal hearing "I Feel 4 U" live.
Who/what are your influences?
My folks, my friends, pirate radio DJs and anyone / anything unflinchingly positive.
What is the best and worst thing about the city that you live in?
Best thing: My apartment. Worst thing: attitudes and knife crime.
Given the accelerated pace of modern culture, what are we due a revival in?
Capes. Superheroes save the world and everyone wants to be a superhero. So buy a damn cape.
Herbie Hancock. Musical genius, a figure as important as Stevie in advancing black music.
Is there anything else that you feel that we should know?
I love toast and Nike Air Max
