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


Chic - Risqué (Atlantic, 1979)

Don’t underestimate the Nile, the Nile is within you. When it comes to disco, people don’t understand tequila sunrises, girl's handbags and bad aftershave... it's fun. It gets the girls dancing. This is 'Good Times', the bass line that launched the thousand trillion versions, not to mention Queen's ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ and ‘Rapper's Delight’ by Sugar Hill Gang.
