Alain Goraguer - OST La Planète Sauvage (1973)

This is the soundtrack to the 1973 french animated movie La Planète Sauvage. It is done entirely by Alain Goraguer who worked with Serge Gainsbourg. The album is a trip as it weaves it way through synths and horns while always sounding mysterious. If you have heard Madlib's Quasimoto albums then you will recognize some of this music immediately. This album is where the inspiration for Lord Quas came about and its no surprise given the excellence of this record.

Dre Dog - I Hate You With A Passion (1995)

Andre Nickatina isn't the most conventional artist but he can convey dark emotion and a sense of evil almost like no other. When I was first recommended this album my buddy said I needed to be high to really hear it. He was exactly right, you need to be in that state of mind the first time you listen to really delve into this album. Situation Critical is one of Nickatina's greatest songs.
