Wu-Tang Clan - Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

My sister had a big impact on my music taste. She was one year older so the age difference is not that much. We would listen to music together and I picked up her taste, basically. When I was 13 she was on a school trip in Paris and I remember she was obsessed with these crazy speakers she bought from there, and also the Wu-Tang Clan. I didn’t like hip-hop at all before that, but this has a pretty special sound compared to other hip-hop albums. It was dirtier. I was very much into prog metal at that time. It was my sister who introduced me to hip-hop and reggae. I remember I started listening to House of Pain and then I started to explore music software, trackers and making electronic music.
