As rumours build of a collaboration between Jlin and Aphex Twin, the Indiana producer & writer of our 2015 Album Of The Year caught up with tQ to talk through 13 of her favourite songs and records


Elliot Moss - 'Without the Lights'
Someone that I collaborate with shared this on their Facebook page, and you could see just from the thumbnail that it looked like dance. The visuals, the dancing, the choreography and the song itself are all just beautiful. It's all just really well executed. You'd have to watch it, since every interpretation is different, but for me, it was just executed in a way that you could feel every step and every beat, all completely intertwined. None of it is separate - dance is with sound and sound is with dance. It means that you feel everything, or at least I did. It was just one of those moments that reminded me of when I'm going to create a song and something strikes me so deeply that it just inspires a whole world of things.
