Ninja Tune XX - 4 X Compilation CDs - Vol. 1 & Vol. 2

9q9s9y.jpg

The Ninja Tune label is twenty years old this September. Yes, it's two whole decades since Matt Black and Jon More (aka Coldcut) first released music under that stealthy imprint. And twenty years on Ninja is still going strong, if not stronger, if not stronger than stronger. What we've put together to celebrate this momentous anniversary is not a retrospective but what we're calling a futurespective (that's the kind of people we are. We make up words and you either buy in or we come round your house and suffocate you with a crisp packet). What we mean is it's a compilation of new stuff, of newness and newly made remixes that are new. What we mean is it's really fucking good, what we mean is... oh, just listen.

So, here we go (this is a fool's game in that one man's monkey is another man's amour). In terms of the four CDs you have, particular moments to look out for include (but aren't limited to): Two Fingers' absolutely pummeling opener 'Fools'; Autechre's minimalist remix of The Bug's 'Skeng'; Toddla T and Ms Dynamite's new collaboration; the return of Big Dada Sound with the cream of the label's UK MCs riding a Bless Beats rhythm; Micachu's remix of Roots Manuva's 'Dub Styles'; new and exclusive tracks from Zomby and Dorian Concept (which are killer, but we would say that) ; the Floating Points Ensemble's epic soul-jazz number 'Post Suite'; the exquisite link-up between Lou Rhodes and The Cinematic Orchestra on 'One Good Thing'; Diplo remix of his own classic 'Summer's Gonna Hurt You'; Todd Edward's twisted hijack of Spank Rock's 'What It Look Like'; Gaslamp Killer's vicious re-work of DJ Vadim's classic 'Terrorist'; the truly far-out 'Foley Room' reinterpretation from the Kronos Quartet; Mark Pritchard's virtuosic take on Poirier's 'Get Crazy'; Mala's dubphonic interpretation of Andreya Triana's 'A Town Called Obsolete'; or a host of killer tracks from new and up-and-coming artists including Eskmo, Emika, Shuttle, Dark Sky, Offshore and DELS.

These four CDs (available as two double CDs - Vol. 1 and Vol. 2) are the first four CDs in the Ninja Tune XX box set, a very limited special edition of which there are now SOLD OUT!
