Ahead of his new album, Friendly Bacteria, out on Ninja Tune this month, the tea-loving master of the marathon DJ set pens us his own Baker's Dozen, picking the top 13 records out of his crate

This Baker's Dozen is a selection of all-time favourites that have been very influential. They are all classic albums in their own right, and the way that I came to hear them caused them to become important musical milestones, either as a doorway into another musical world, or just solid albums that I always come back to.

Friendly Bacteria is released on May 19 via Ninja Tune, with Mr. Scruff heading on tour in advance, beginning tomorrow, May 9, at Southport Weekender 50; head here for full details. He'll also be headlining a special one-day takeover of the Roundhouse in London on May 31, joined by Portico Quartet, Fatima & The Eglo Live Band, Matthew Halsall Trio and more.
