Concretise The Oddness: Lee Gamble Picks His 13 Favourite Records
Jennifer Lucy Allan , September 27th, 2017 09:22

With his first album for Hyperdub en route and Unsound appearance impending, Lee Gamble guides Jennifer Lucy Allan from 80s beatboxing to some of 2017's best releases through the medium of his 13 favourite records


REQ - One

This is an album I just have to take with me. It was probably a big influence, although I don’t like to think about single influences like that. Req is for all intents and purposes a hiphop record, but it just feels like it doesn’t have a time. It feels like a document of something you'd send to someone to say ‘this is the kind of music that was happening’, and they'd say 'it would be lovely if you could have been in there to hear this’, but this is actually it, the only one like it. And I’m not sure I can say that about the stuff that I've made.
