My Record Collection by Problem Central

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 drum'n'bass titans Problem Central and their key man Eksman. Let's see what he picks out...

 

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

"NWA's 'F**k The Police. The original outlaws! Groundbreaking of its era. Breaking all the rules regardless of the repercussions. Musically the teamwork is second to none!"

 

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

"I'd go Dr Dre's 2001. Even to this day. There isn’t anything better than classic Dre!"

 

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

"This is Roni Size's It's Jazzy. Works every time."

 

The record that always makes me feel good is…

"Arman Van Helden's 'You Don't Know Me'. Classic production. Play it anywhere and it will unite the arena with good vibes."

 

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

"Sam Cooke's Change Is Gonna Come. So much pain and honesty in this song. They don’t make them like this anymore."

 

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

"For this one, I'll go with Shy FX's Feelings. We all think it should have been a Number One. Perhaps they got the marketing wrong, but it is 100% a contender."

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle. The whole inlay of the album read as a cartoon. Almost like a doggystyle comic. It's a classic!"

 


The record with my favourite title is…

"Majistrate's Bumbaclart. Self-explanatory. Say it out loud for yourself."

 

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

"Chris Brown's Freaky Friday. I mean it starts bad, then it gets a bit worse, then Kendal Jenner or whoever finishes it. Nah mate, you’re alright!"

 

The last record I bought was…

"I picked up Travis Scott's Astroworld. Rather than moaning about how everything was better back in the day, we prefer to keep our finger on the pulse. This album has some incredible moments on it…"

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2018 is…

"Problem Central's Problem Time. We are hard working on quality music. We want to put out quality. It is the most important thing to us. After our mixtape drops on December 18th. We will be hitting you with Problem Time as a single. Hyped for you all to hear it."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"For me, it's Bob Marley's 'Could You Be Loved'. Does this need any explanation? Any song that can unite an entire crowd, no matter their colour, creed or religion is incredible. This is at the top of the pile."
