From his time working on classics like The Pop Group's Y, The Slits' Cut and Janet Kay's Silly Games, to the inspiration of Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles, Dennis Bovell takes Neil Kulkarni through his thirteen favourite records


Steve Mason – Ghosts Outside

When I listen back to this, I wonder why it wasn’t a hit! Certainly when Steve suggested the idea of the whole of his Boy Outside album getting a dub reworking the people at Domino had raised eyebrows. I loved Steve’s voice on the original album, so I just took everything away apart from his voice and some drum loops. I loved making this album and wanted to include it cos I think it’s a future hit in the making! For me, when I approach a remix job I come with no boundaries and that’s how I approached this, and how I approached Y In Dub.
