Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

10. Miss Kittin & The HackerFirst Album

I first heard ‘Frank Sinatra’ when Erasure where recording the album Erasure in 1994 at the Strongroom in Shoreditch East London, which has now become metrosexual electro Grand Central. I love her completely nonchalant don’t give a fuck attitude on Hollywood Star, it kind of reminds me of my pre-Erasure work with Pierre Cope – very minimal. On ‘Frank Sinatra’ she sounds like a Russian Mafia gangster that would kill you stone dead. They’re also brilliant live.
