My Favourite Record is a new weekly feature where we ask musicians we rate from across the spectrum to pick their most cherished album – a development of our occasional On Record feature, and a chance to take a peek at the albums that maketh the artist. Today’s entry:
(from Bad, Epic, 1987)
Picked by: UK house crossover star and Broadwalk boss Julio Bashmore.
“Mine would be Michael Jackson, ‘Speed Demon’. It’s fucking weird and the production’s insane. It’s from Bad, and from back when I was five, that was the one from the album where I was always like, ‘play that again’. For now, I’m gonna go with that.
“He was untouchable. Have you ever seen the 1993 Superbowl performance? It’s just unreal. [puts on Youtube video] Who in the charts right now is gonna do this?”
