01. Zodiac - Pacific
"First music i remember loving. Used to ask my mom to put on this (latvian) record when i was five or six. i was transfixed by the strange resonance and the futuristic cover; this is the origin of my affinity for synthetic sounds. Pacific was my fave."
02. Missing Persons - If Only For The Moment
"This band was pretty key for me among other mainstream 80s music i was listening to in college, like Thompson Twins, Numan and Naked Eyes. Awesome production, craftsmanship and atmosphere."
03. Martial Canterel - Steele
"Found out about him through genetic records (germany) around 2005. Love this for the sense of mystery and wistfullness it evokes."
04. TV Set - The City
"Another genetic record i hooked on; love the angular dancing black turtleneck aesthetics."
05. IKO '83 - Gonadotropic Synthesis
"Very key. Perfect synth popsicle."
06. Ceramic Hello - Symphony Of Shudders
"That name and his music totally bring out the geek in me. Genius."
07. Moebius - Sinister
"Einstein of krautrock. Sounds from another world."
08. Pink Industry - Anyone's Fashion
"First heard about them in 95/96. Sexiest music in the galaxy. Hard to pick a fave, like with a lot of these bands. Pink Industry gives me shivers."
09. Wire - Go Ahead
"This song is a vortex to another dimension."
10. Cocteau Twins - Memory Gongs
Cocteau Twins were a key influence that carried me for years. Supreme masters of atmosphere and melody."
11. Lickerish Quartet - Shelter [physics] edit
"I remember this 'striking a chord'. When i was in my 'warp / astralwerks phase.' Pads are key."
12. Love, Inc. - Life's a Gas
"Discovered this track late last year. It propelled me to start physics after a long hiatus of not making music."
