Ninja Tune, the greatest recording organisation in the world, presents a daily demonstration of their new stereophonic discs…
While other record labels have had their time in the sun, Ninja Tune has consistently been one of my favourite labels. Not just for their prodigious, genre-bending output, but also for having introduced me to whole new worlds of music. I definitely have their 90s output to thank for understanding and getting into jazz and all sorts of ‘World Music’, for instance.
With that in mind, I set about building a robot DJ to dig through the dusty 90s record crates and produce a suitably (slightly retro) 90s Ninja Tune and related mix every morning. And ta-da, here it is!
Oldcut picks 100 tracks of classic trip hop, jazzy boom bap, chill hop, whatever you want to call it, from the peak of the 90s surge in this genre. It also kicks off the playlist with a traditional short ‘intro’ track.
So expect selections from Ninja Tune & Mo Wax like Nightmares on Wax, Coldcut (the name kind of gives that away!), Funki Porcini, Up, Bustle and Out, The Irresistible Force (Mixmaster Morris), DJ Food, Skalpel, Howie B, Kid Loco, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Red Snapper, Luke Vibert, Blue States, The Clifford Gilberto Rhythm Combination, Fingathing, Amon Tobin, Fila Brazillia, 9 Lazy 9, Bonobo, Quantic, DJ Krush, Bent, Animals on Wheels, Blue States, Jon Kennedy, Neotropic, etc.
