Dr Alex Paterson of The Orb has fine taste in music indeed. Here he talks us through his favourite 13 albums...


Schneider TM – Zoomer (Mute, 2002)

This album saved my life. It is minimal techno with Beatles-esque lyrical delight. The most standout tune is the first track ‘Cuba’. It has a bass end you will be proud of and sweet innocent lyrics. I first heard it in Germany and it helped me stay sane when I broke up with the mother of Mia.
