30 years ago this month, Ninja Tune came into being and 20 years ago the label made it into double figures.
I made a Ninja-centric set for the occasion and this was recorded across various dates of a UK tour to support the Xen Cuts compilation album. At some point I put it down in two parts and the first 30 minutes of part 1 was played on Solid Steel 09/10/200 but the rest of this mix went un-broadcast I think.
Part 2 continues the theme - warning - some very shonky mixes in parts here, never try mixing heavily swung half time jazz with regimental double time drum n bass. Also - lots of scratching near the end, I had edited in some scratch jam from a tour with Ollie Teeba and Kid Koala that I’d completely forgotten about. Possibly from 1997, I forget, it goes on a bit but has some nice moments (only some).
