At last, the first new DJ Food EP is here with another two to follow before forming the bulk of an album next Spring, tentativety titled 'Stolen Moments'. 'One Man's Weird Is Another Man's World' is a 5 track 12" with over 30 minutes of new music and a poster cover drawn by 2000ad comic artist Henry Flint.
The amazing new DJ Food website launches today, hosting an encyclopedic archive of all things Food.
'One Man's Weird Is Another Man's World' track breakdown: 'The Illectrik Hoax' features Nathaniel Pearn aka Natural Self aka one half of The Broken Keys in a role he's not normally known for - vocalist. Kev approached him after hearing an uncredited vocalist on two Broken Keys tracks which turned out to be Nathaniel's first forays into singing.
'extract from Stolen Moments' is the first of several variations on a theme that will run through the forthcoming album of the same name. Co-written with PC and seeing the light of day in remixed form after being shelved at the last minute for the 'Kaleidoscope' album.
'All Covered In Darkness Part 1' hosts guest appearances - in sample form - from two artists previously associated with DJ Food. Ken Nordine should need no introduction, he provides the verses whilst the harmonies of The Dragons fill the choruses. The good Dr. Rubberfunk joins in on drums to glue the whole thing together and then freq's out on Part 2 as things get heavy.
'A Trick Of The Ear ' - a 13 and a half minute polyrhythmic percussion epic mixed by ex Tortoise member Bundy K Brown who also provides a remix with an epic title to match. Headphone music based on circular rhythms aimed at the head rather than the feet.
'Colours Beyond Colours' - meditations on colours from far out in space, looking back through the Kaleidoscope.
