Coldcut - 6 Mix (9/26/2010)


DJ and production duo Coldcut host a special 6 Mix celebrating the 20th anniversary of their Ninja Tune record label. Founded by the duo – Jonathan Moore and Matt Black – in 1990, Ninja Tune has become one the most important homes for electronic and experimental dance music in the UK. As well as releasing records by Coldcut themselves, Ninja have gone on to start the careers of artists including Luke Vibert, The Herbaliser, DJ Food, Kid Koala and many, many more. The label also pioneered the art of using live visuals in dance music, and its distinctive Ninja logo has become synonymous with the cream of experimental music in Britain. To mark twenty years at its helm, Coldcut present their very own ‘history of Ninja’ 6 Mix, playing and talking about some of the key artists in the label’s history, and looking forward to where it will head in the next few years. The 6 Mix then pits a host of Ninja DJs past and present against each other in an exclusive soundclash, with mini mixes from Mr Scruff, Strictly Kev from DJ Food, Eskmo and Toddla T’s tribute to label stalwart, Roots Manuva.
