Welcome to this week’s playlist, curated by legendary baggy, electro outfit Stereo MC’s.

The group came to the fore in the early nineties when their song, Connected, took off and made the global stars.

Since then, the band have continued to record and release, focusing more on their underground roots in bass and dub and have just announced their first UK tour in 12 years. Find out where they're playing, check out our recent interview on their return and connect with their exclusive playlist below. Chow down on classic sounds from the likes of Aphex Twin, Eric B and Rakim and Terranova… Here’s what they’ve got to say about their selections..

Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force - Planet Rock

The 808 drum machine and a Kraftwerk classic put together create something awesome that completely changed the face of music. Perfection.

Gill Scott Heron - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Poetry, politics and music at its best.

Aphex Twin - Windowlicker

Hypnotic, twisted and a great video.

Joy Division - Love Will Tear us Apart

Beauty and intensity.

Eric B and Rakim - Eric B is President

Blueprint for mid-eighties hip hop.

A Guy Called Gerald - Voodoo Ray

The sound of a moment in time and unity through music.

Terranova - HeadLock

Subtle and uplifting now club music.

Talking Heads - Pyscho Killer

New York art funk and party and brilliant rhythm section.

Neil Young - Heart Of Gold

Always loved this song. It’s so simply expressed.

The Junkyard Band - Sardines

Great one off track came out on Def Jam. I don’t know much about them but think this was their only record.
