As he releases his first new material in eight years, the French composer, producer and laser harp maestro talks Yousif Nur through a Baker's Dozen of LPs by artists who shaped or collaborated on his Electronica albums


White Noise - An Electric Storm
This is another album which should have far more recognition. It's a late-'60s record that has it all. This has a rock & roll approach to pure British pop with lots of sound processing, samples and things like that. It's a perfect encounter between '60s British pop and humour and experimental music, whilst being quite sensual, fun, melodic and dark. It's a cult album that's absolutely one of my favourite albums of all time.
