The electro-rap pioneer recorded his second album, Everything Is Boring and Everyone Is a Fucking Liar (out now), in London with Mark Ronson and in Berlin with Boys Noize. Here, the 29-year-old Baltimore native shares ten favorite tracks he discovered during his travels.

1. Sebastian, "Embody"
"It's like a remix to a dream I once had that Tevin Campbell died and they needed me to replace him in Graffiti Bridge."


2. Katy B, "Katy On a Mission"
"Fuck Jessie J! Katy B is the best thing that happened to London since Lady Di!"


3. Jamie xx, "Far Nearer"
"It's like Luther Vandross is singing from heaven with God on the steel drums."


4. Anika, "Terry"

"Mark Ronson gave me this album and I gave him herpes."


5. James Blake, "The Wilhelm Scream"
"If I was American and music was like collecting baseball cards, I'd trade my John Mayer, Justin Bieber, and Bruno Mars rookie cards for one James Blake."


6. Carte Blanche, "Gare Du Nord"
"When these guys DJ'ed my favorite Philadelphia dance party, Snacks, this track made me punch out a ceiling tile. True story."


7. Chilly Gonzales, "Knight Moves"
"I like this song 'cause it reminds me of the color white."


8. Metronomy, "We Broke Free"
"Seagulls and falsettos . . . holla!"


9. Untold, "Stereo Freeze"
"This song makes me feel the same way I did when watching Big Trouble in Little China for the first time: horny!"


10. The Horrors, "Still Life"
"I like to think if I wasn't born to a widowed teenage girl behind the Shake & Bake roller-skating rink on Baltimore's Pennsylvania Ave., I'd make music like this."
