Rhythm Nation DJ Trevor Nelson reveals his high six albums


His compilation Gradual Jams is out right this moment.

HERBIE HANCOCK: Head Hunters (Sony) Folks know me for R&B however I like funk fusion.

Hancock is king of that. In school I discovered geeks like me and we’d trawl specialist jazz retailers in London.

Chameleon is the funkiest observe you’ll ever hear with out James Brown’s involvement. I’ll by no means let this little bit of vinyl go.

BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS: Exodus (Common/Island) I had simply turned a teen and each black household I knew was conscious of how essential Bob was to the tradition.

However this was the primary album the place mates at college, who favored punk, can be speaking about him.

It was the proper crossover album. 

MICHAEL JACKSON: Off The Wall (Sony) My three sisters and I beloved the Jackson 5.

Disco was cheesy then however this was one thing else.

He was just like the Duracell Bunny and we have been excited to see the Don’t Cease ’Til You Get Sufficient video. 

STEVIE WONDER: Songs In The Key of Life (Motown) My musical god.

After I was at school I saved listening to completely different songs that I beloved then I realised they have been all on this album.

He blended politics with joyous songs of affection.

As is my favorite. I all the time smile when it comes on.

A TRIBE CALLED QUEST: The Low Finish Concept (Sony) My favorite hip-hop band.

I used to be astounded when it got here out as a result of they used so many jazz samples.

Married with hip-hop, it was stunning.

This stayed in my automobile for 2 years

LAURYN HILL: The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill (Ruffhouse/Columbia) From my heyday deejaying on MTV and Radio 1.

Hip-hop wanted her: a feminine singer with credibility as a rapper with out having to take all her garments off.

It jogs my memory of interviewing Lauryn and her doing a live performance for me on the BBC.

Magnificent.
