Afrika Bambaataa

is the «godfather of hiphop». Back in 1982 he sampled Kraftwerk for the genre defining «Planet Rock» and got sued by the stern Germans. The leader of the infamous Zulu Nation is still one of the most adventurous DJs of the world.

Which song do you listen to when...
you cook?

Well nothing that distracts me too much from it.

you prepare for an important date?
The Last Poets

Some conscious records. Spoken word recordings by The Last Poets, Minister Louis Farrakhan and Malcom X.

you are in a depressive mood?
Yolanda Adams
Hezekiah Walker

Any kind of spiritual music. That could be from African music to meditation music like Tibetian choirs. And there’s also a lot of funky gospel records like Yolanda Adams, Hezekiah Walker.... It’s supposed to be churchy but it makes you wanna dance.

you destroy a hotel room?

I don’t do such a thing. A very disrespectful thing to do. You have to respect the property of others!

you drive a car late at night?
Dionne Warwick
The Supremes
The Temptations

That depends. If I’m going out it should be something banging like loud hiphop. If I’m coming home from a club where I played loud beats myself, I need something to ease me down, like The Temptations, The Supremes or Dionne Warwick.

you are on a football field?
Gary Glitter - Rock And Roll
you make love?
The Isley Brothers - Groove With You

Something to get you really in to it. Some old Barry White tunes, or even better: some of the smooth bedroom jams by the Isley Brothers (anything like «Between The Sheets», «Groove With You» or «(At Your Best) You Are Love».

you sit in a plane?

Old and new RnB.

you play a game of chess?

Nothing. I have to concentrate on the game.

you sit in the subway?
Zapp
James Brown

But also any kind of hiphop.

you wake up?

I normally don’t listen to music when I get up. I just wash my face, get my body in shape, get the hell out and get down to business. If there would be music it could be any kind of style, if it’s funky! Sometimes I might wanna hear some Go-Go or some reggae.
