Heru Wahyono — Shaggy Dog & Dub Youth Soundsystem’s Heru Wahyono shares 8 of his favourite tunes.
Artist: Jackie Mittoo Album: A Tribute to reggae's Keyboard King (Compilation) Genre: Reggae/Instrumental “I often start my morning with coffee and this vinyl on my turntable. It's one of my mood-booster albums that I go back to again and again.”
Artist: Red Hot Chilli Peppers Song: Aeroplane Genre: Funk/Rock/Alternative “The title and lyrics is literally what has happened in my life. ‘Music takes me everywhere’. I just downloaded this track and have been playing it with the boys in our hotel room.”
Artist: Jools Holland feat. Jamiroquai Song: I'm in the Mood for Love Genre: Rocksteady “Originally written by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields in 1935, it has since been covered by sooo many artists and bands. The Jamiroquai version is the perfect wedding song!”
Artist: Shaggydog Album: Kembali Berdansa Genre: Ska/Reggae/Dub “I must admit that this is by far one of the best albums by my band, Shaggydog. We won several awards for it over the years and we couldn’t be more grateful.”
Artist: A Tribe Called Quest Song: Can I Kick It? Genre: Hiphop “One of my favourite hiphop tracks ever. I especially like the part where they sample Lou Reed’s ‘Walk on the Wild Side’. I discovered this song while touring through Marseille, France.”
Artist: Dubyouth Soundsystem Song: Basstruck (6Blocc Remix) Genre: Juke/Footwork “For this song we were so stoked to join forces with 6Blocc, he's the producer of Snoop Lion's single ‘Here Comes The King’ (with Diplo). The result was just MAAAD!”
Artist: Dub Club (Compilation) Album: Signs & Wonders in Dub Genre: Dub “My first 'Stones Throw Records' vinyl. I really dig what they do and was stoked to collaborate. It sounds real good - there’s some analog stuff and cool fx's. Great overall production.”
Artist: Sixto Rodriguez Album: Searching for Sugar Man original motion picture soundtrack. Genre: Folk - Rock “If you love Bob Dylan’s sound, you’re gonna love this album for sure. I recommend you watch the movie too, it’s a crazy story!”
