My Record Collection by Disciples

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of dance trio Disciples, let's see what they choose...


You can listen to some of Disciples' recommendations in this playlist...


The first record I ever bought with my own money was…

Duvall: "Missy Elliott featuring Nicole Wray & MC Solar – 'All N My Grill'. When I heard MC Solar rapping in French I didn’t understand a word he was saying but it blew my mind, especially having this on an international record."

Luke: "Shanks and Bigfoot – 'Sweet Like Chocolate'. I must have been 10 years old and when it was released as soon as I got my £5 pocket money, I ran out and bought it for £3.99."

Gavin: "Kriss Kross – 'Jump'. I was just amazed to hear some twins who could rap as fast as me."

The record that made me want to be in a band was…

Duvall: "Nirvana - 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. Just made me think “F*** you world”… it just really appealed to the rebellious side of me."

Luke: "Swedish House Mafia – 'Greyhound'. They were doing dance music on a level like no other, similar to rockstars. It made me realise that there is no limit with dance music.

Gavin: "Wookie – 'Storm'. Initially, I never wanted to be in band, haha. Hearing tracks like this just really made me want to produce music."

The record I've played more than any other is…

Gavin: "Booka Shade - 'In White Rooms'. Dirty little track."

Duvall: "Michael Jackson - 'Dirty Diana'.

Luke: "Coolio - 'Gangsta's Paradise'. Doesn’t get old."

The record that always make me feel good is…

Duvall: "Wham - Wake Me Up'. Just try and be angry/upset listening to it. You can’t.

Luke: "'Lionel Ritchie - All Night Long'.

Gavin: "'Dr Dre - Nutin But A G Thang'."

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

Gavin: "George Fitzgerald – 'Full Circle'."

Duvall: "Busta Rhymes - 'Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See'. Best hip hop beat ever. And Busta’s flow is unreal."

Luke: "For me this is Biggie Smalls - 'Sky’s The Limit'."


The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

Gavin: "I'd say Robyn - 'With Every Heartbeat'."

Duvall: "Disciples – 'Remedy'. Of course we’re being biased, but we do feel it was really underrated."

Luke: "What he said."

The record with my favourite cover art is…

Luke: "Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III. Mini Wayne in a little suit with little tattoos and the little pinkie ring. Sick."

Duvall: "Michael Jackson - Dangerous. It’s really surreal with lots of detail and symbolism. The more you look at it the more you see."

The record with my favourite title is…

Gavin: "Notorious B.I.G's 'Hypnotize' – Words and music hypnotising women. Love it."

Luke: "2Pac - 'Letter to my Unborn Child'."

Duvall: "Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson - Beauty and the Beast. Reminds me of me and my lady. I’m the beauty..."

The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

Luke: "I'll take this one. OMI - 'Cheerleader."

The last record I bought was…

Luke: "Zayn's 'PillowTalk – Love how he’s completely doing his own thing now without outside forces pressuring him in to a specific sound, and how he’s made the transmission to RnB."

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2016 is…

All: "Our next single 'No Worries'." 

The greatest record of all time is…

Luke: "This is Daft Punk – 'Around The World'

Duvall: "For me it's Coldplay - 'Scientist'

Gavin: "I'd say Coldplay – 'Trouble'."


Disciples' new single 'No Worries', which features David Guetta, is out now and available to purchase here.
