Golden Oldie: Manuel Gottsching — "E2-E4" (Spalax Music). This release is the reason I went into DJing. To say the least, it's had a massive impact on me.

New Classic: Terre Thaemlitz — "Raw Through A Straw" (Comatonce Recordings). I've been playing this at parties since the first time I heard it. Floor Filler: Function — "Variance" (Sandwell District). I bought it two years ago, and it hasn't left my record bag. It's safe to say that I play it out every time.

Must Listen: Moritz Von Oswald Trio — "1" & "2" (Honest Jon's Records). The Moritz Von Oswald Trio has, without a doubt, cast a big stone into the club-music pool with this project. I have the utmost respect for all the members in the group.

Iori spins at Liquid Room in Tokyo on April 2. For more information, visit www.liquidroom.net; Also, download a mix at soundcloud.com/iori927
