Rob da Bank

Jock Rocks

He’s Radio 1’s most eclectic proposition so who better than Rob da Bank to pick out some essential tunes from his compadres in the Slam tent?

Richie Hawtin

‘Will he play it, won’t he play it? Hawtin is the don, and this record lives on and on. This track IS the Slam Tent at T.’ http://tiny.cc/Plastik

Aphex Twin

‘Analogue Bubblebath’
‘Heard this at sundown at Sonar last week, and it sounded as warm and inviting as ever. Genius.’ Hear at http://tiny.cc/Aphex


‘The crossover hit of last year loved by pop and dance fans alike. Fun guys, loved having them on my BBC Radio 1 show. Here they are performing this song on American TV. That’s them with the ghetto blaster at the start. Not sure who the other folks are . . .’ http://tiny.cc/Justice

DJ Hell

‘My Definition of House Music’
‘An early pioneer with that classical riff in the middle.’ http://tiny.cc/Hell893

Miss Kittin & The Hacker
