My Record Collection by Topic

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 German DJ Topic, let's see what he's got for us...

 

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

"It was Eminem's 'Without Me'. Even though I was very sad after buying it. Brilliant song, but it was the maxi CD and I thought there would be more tracks on it..."



The record that made me want to be a DJ was…

"I'd say it was Avicii's True. It's the dance album, which shaped me the most and after producing urban tracks finally lead me to EDM. A genius artist … gone too soon!"



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

"It's Topic ft. Nico Santos. It's definitely 'Home' because that was the first song, which made me break into the industry and received certifications outside my home country. I play it in every one of my sets and even hear it playing on the radio six years after its release."



The record that always makes me feel good is…

"It's Swedish House Mafia's 'Don't You Worry Child'. The record is so full of energy but still very emotional. It perfectly resembles the style of melancholic dance music I've now found my home in."



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

"Linkin Park – 'In The End'. I tend to listen to really sad songs when I'm down and they make me feel good again."



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

"All songs by Rüfüs Du Sol! They are incredible with such a unique sound. If you haven´t heard their records yet you need to do so right away. Also, check out their live performances!"



The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Has to be Coldplay's A Head Full Of Dreams. It's a work of art!"

 



The record with my favourite title is…

"'Schnappi das kleine Krokodil'. A record you probably won't know, but it has been a viral hit in Germany since 2005. I find it funny. It's a song for children and was on top of the charts for weeks on end. Kind of like Baby Shark nowadays."



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

"Olivia Rodrigo's 'Drivers License'. Even though Olivia is great. I think she has much better other songs on her album."



The last record I bought was…

"The last record I bought was my own album Miles. As I looked back on how I started and where I am now, it´s been a ride and I'm incredibly thankful!"



The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2021 is…

"Anything from Swedish House Mafia. I've heard rumours that Swedish House Mafia is coming back!"



The greatest record of all time is…

"Eminem's 'Lose Yourself'. Most timeless song there is to date. I get goosebumps every time I hear that record."
