Jesse Marco's 30 Favorite Albums

Daft Punk, Discovery (2001)

Label: Virgin

Jesse Marco: "Self-explanatory. Actually, the funny thing is actually my cousin gave me Daft Punk Homework. My cousin was a big, he was a really into music when we were kids. He passed stuff down to me. He used to make me mixtapes, you know on actual tapes and shit. He used to give me like Beastie Boys, Green Day. Then he gave me Daft Punk. He gave me their first record, Homework.

"At the time, because I was so into Big, and Wu-Tang, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, I didn't get it, you know what I mean? It was one of those records that stayed in my collection, and I would look at it every now and then, and like, 'I'm gonna just pop that in and listen to it.'

"As I started to get older, and I started to get into DJing and records, and realizing how experimental they were being. When they came out with Discovery, I was like, 'What the hell man?' I know a lot of people like to say that their first album is their favorite. The Discovery album just had songs on it. Like funky ass songs. 'Face to Face' is one of my favorite songs ever."
