Influences “Quartz” Metalheadz

To celebrate the release of the “Hall Of Mirrors EP” by Quartz we asked the artist for a rundown of some influential tracks that have helped shape his distinctive form of drum and bass. Drawing inspiration from warped hip hop, subtle piano compositions and Metalheadz label boss Goldie this diverse selection demonstrate its melody, tone and texture that drive the Quartz sound.

Flying Lotus Featuring DOOM – Masquatch

“Something I never get tired of listening to. DOOM is on a tripped out vibe and the beat, IMO, is 10/10. Detuned, stripped and unexpected. If I need a boost of inspiration this is a go too.”

The Haxan Cloak – Excavation (Part 1)

“This tune takes me to another dimension, lost count of how many times I’ve listened to this. Mad Imagery. The whole album is so on point. Salute to HXC.”

Instra:mental – Rogue

“I still have my original copy of this somewhere. Played it to death. Ticks all the boxes for me. Crunchy.”

Trance Frendz — An Evening With Ólafur Arnalds And Nils Frahm

“This album is superb. Spent many evening with this album on loop. One to chill with and put you in a good mood.”

Rufige Kru – Beachdrifta

“One of those. Don’t really need to say anything else. Has to be in my top 2/3 Headz tunes.”

Yussef Kamaal – Joint 17

“Gave an extra because I’m in a good mood. This whole LP has been my number #1 album for the last 2 years. Absolute heat.”
