Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

1. Wu Tang Clan – Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers)

Geoff Barrow: This choice was between lots of different hip hop records but I chose Enter The Wu-Tang as it’s everything I want as a hip hop fan. I also really get a sense of the punk ethic that informs the RZA’s producton. This record’s roughness and the pure energy of the whole thing is still fresh and unstoppable now.
