My Record Collection by DJ Spinall

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 afrobeat maestro DJ Spinall, let's see what he chooses...

 

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

"I bought like five records in one day but I would say it was one of DMX's It's Dark & Hell Is Hot, Craig David's Born To Do It and Dr Dre's The Chronic. Those were the most impactful ones."

 

The record that made me want to be an artist was…

"If I’m being honest, a lot of records impacted me. From the classic ones my parents used to play like Sunny Ade, Barrister, Wasiu and so on, to the ones I listened to as a teenager as well. One song couldn’t do that magic..."

 

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

"I would say my new record, 'Everytime', it’s very addictive. I personally love it and not just cos I produced it, or because it’s my song. It’s actually an amazing record."

 

The record that always makes me feel good is…

"Any Chris Brown classic. Any Brandy song is up there too. I’m a big fan of R’n’B music."

 

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

"Beyonce made this song called 'Me, Myself & I'. A lot of people think it’s a feminine record, but if you listen to the lyrics properly you would understand it’s a special record."

 

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

"You see, I have a folder of songs I’m going to play to the angels in Heaven in the future when I get there and report to God to punish all the people that slept on some songs, to be honest. I have a folder. Loads of songs. Songs like Davido ft Yonda's 'Animashaun' and Attention's 'Tiwa Savage'. 

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"That will definitely be my second studio album, Dreams. Go look at it again."

 

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"I'd say Wande Coal's Bumper To Bumper. Because what that record meant was way beyond and above."

 

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

"Look, yeah, the kids will fight me for this, but definitely it’s 'Baby Shark' by Pinkfong..."

 

The last record I bought was…

"I love Brandy so so much. Everyone knows. Her last album was the last album I bought. B7 Album."

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2020 is…

"I’m looking forward to my fifth album, Burna Boy, Davido & Wizkid’s Album."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"This song, DJ Spinall ft Wizkid's 'Nowo'. This record changed the Afrobeats scene as it broke a lot of barriers worldwide."
