Luciano lists his top life-defining albums

Luciano is fully embedded in Farringdon history. He first visited us way back in September 2004, around the time his visionary Cadenza label was beginning to redefine the burgeoning European minimal sound. That night was the first of many EC1 stop-offs from the Chilean-Swiss artist, where he’s always brought the kind of carnival-like Latino spirit he’s best known. This distinctive playing style helped make him one of the world’s most revered house DJs, but as an artist, his influences come from a wide range of musical branches. Before we welcome him back to Farringdon for the first time since 2010 as part of our 20th anniversary celebrations, he filled us in on some of his top life-defining albums.

Manuel Göttsching – E2-E4 [Inteam GmbH]

This record inspired me as a guitar player. It’s a perfect balance between electronic and acoustic music.

Aphex Twin – Selected Ambient Works 85-92 [Apollo]

This album defines everything I love about sound shaping and the experience of music.

Talk Talk – Spirit Of Eden [Parlophone]

Just an outstanding record, both the recording and engineering is absolutely stunning.

Rhythm & Sound w/ Cornell Campbell – King In My Empire [Burial Mix]

One of the best records of all time. If you like dub, you’ll be blown away.

Manduka & Los Jaivas – Los Sueños de América [Movieplay]

A true Chilean anthem in collaboration with Manduka. This record holds mystery and magic.

Patato & Totico – Patato & Totico [Verve]

A classic record from the Cuban conga playing duo: Carlos "Patato" Valdes, and vocalist and composer, Eugenio "Totico" Arango.

S O H N – Tremors [4AD]

A great record from an electronic artist that shapes music into a journey.

Ólafur Arnalds – Re:member [Re:member]

Just music… Open your ears.

Leon Bridges – River [Columbia]

No words needed.
