As someone who has never DJed before, I was feeling pretty good about my skills after downloading the Ninja Jamm app. All I needed was a quick but comprehensive tutorial and I was ready to cut, splice, and interact with sounds made by top electronic artists from the Ninja Tune label. Ninja Tune is a British EDM label started by DJs Matt Black and Jonathan More, but you may know them by their stage name, Coldcut . Together with arts and technology collective, Seeper , they have created something incredibly powerful, allowing users to interact with [...]
In the second part of our Always Read the Label series, we take a look at Ninja Tune , a record label whose colourful form and slick moves have been battling fiercely against the drab aesthetics of mediocre music since its formation in 1990. Eclecticism is their bread and butter, with creativity possibly serving as their optional jam. Over the past twenty years the label has managed to forge new avenues for instrumental hip-hop while simultaneously reinventing jazz and dishing up fresh, hot bowls of new talent for the little ones. They’ve also managed to spawn a string of [...]
By Eliot Van Buskirk of Evolver.fm . The legendary electronica label Ninja Tune has done what many have contemplated, but no one has crushed: It launched an app, Ninja Jamm , that lets anyone remix music with (relative) ease, using a variety of high-quality releases from world-renowned DJs, producers, and other artists. If this doesn’t start you remixing music, nothing will. By simply downloading this free app , you get access to the remix tools [...]
Hoje é dia de mais uma Heineken Series e começa logo bem com o concerto dos Vahagn & The Sky People, onde a electrónica, o funk, a house e o disco vão andar de mãos dadas a um ritmo e groove inevitavelmente dançável. Duas horas depois sobe ao palco Matt Black, metade do duo Coldcut e que vem agora a Lisboa apresentar um projecto que junta electrónica e imagens/vídeos escolhidos e remisturados ao vivo pelas mãos do músico. Tudo termina pelas mãos e músicas de Rui Murka. Horários: CONCERTO | VAHAGN & [...]
Two lovely tracks that, frankly, could appear in either order. First Coldcut and then Global Communication. #4 Coldcut - Autumn Leaves (Mixmaster Morris) I don't particularly associate Coldcut with chillout music. But this cover version by Coldcut of a 1945 song, with vocals from Janis Alexander, got a none-more-ambient remix from Mixmaster Morris in 1993. This is Balearic as it should be. There were also remixes from Nellee Hooper and Paul Gotel but neither could come close to the beauty provided by Mixmaster Morris. He [...]

Gotta say, I peeped this mix out in South Africa where the internet levels are low, so I must confess that I have only listened to the first half, but if that's anything to go by, the second... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]
Recorded on the anniversary of JFK's assassination and 21 years after their historic '92 New Year mix on Kiss 100 FM, Coldcut meets The Orb inna Uptown Youth House for the Return Trip. Matt Black and Jonathan More alongside studio accomplice Dor Wand got suitably enhanced with Dr LX Paterson and Youth for a multi-player late night jam session lasting over 3 hours. They then entrusted the multitracks of the set to DJ Food who heroically edited, condensed and massaged the sprawling swamp of sound into a tight - but also loose - 2 hour Solid [...]
The votes are in and it's been a tight contest, but the Solid Steel Mix of the Year 2012 as voted by the listeners, goes to Banks and his mix from October. We take another listen to part of his mix and first up it's his transformation of The Keeper by Bonobo and then onto Deco Child, the excellent Anti-Pop Consortium remixed by Four Tet, before dropping his second remix which is a sublime rework of 'Lost where I belong' by Andreya Triana. The mix continues to flow with Modeselektor, Orbital from '94, Lusine and the collaboration between Four Tet, [...]
Solid Steel in association with Serato (30th November) Coldcut open the show this week with a Funk laden mix kicking off with Grover Washington, Muddy Waters and Baby Huey displaying low slung bass and beats, assisted by Lords of the Underground, Natalie Storm and The Aztext & Touchphonics. Oneness of JuJu show their heavy African influence and then it's time for the Godfather, James Brown and his deciples The JB's, followed by Ebo Taylor, more funk from Airto Fogo, Jain Band & Eddie Bo and closing with BT Express adding a Disco lick. PART 1 + 2 - [...]
La Rafinerie nous propose une soirée unique dédiée à 4 labels indépendants qui ont définitivement marqué l’histoire de la musique électronique : Ninja Tune , Warp , Ed Banger et Brainfeeder . Pour se faire, nous avons demandé à 4 artistes appartenant à ces labels, de se prêter à un exercice de style qu’ils n’ont jamais fait auparavant : ne jouer uniquement que les productions, remixes ou édits parus sur leurs écuries respectives. Nous invitons donc, Coldcut , le boss de Ninja Tune, à retracer l’histoire [...]

This video blew my mind when I first saw it back in the '902s. Just stumbled on it again.
Solid Steel in association with Serato (14th September) Coldcut return from an appearance at Bestival with a huge mix to mark the end of festival season. Kicking off with a couple of reggae licks from Dillinger and King Tubby, then onto the DJ C remix for Sub Swara and keeping half time with Scuba and the lush vocals of Joanna Law. It's tough beats all the way with RackNRuin, Krueger and Terror Danjah, before Burro Banton joins Poirier and classic Hashim is remixed by Bassmint. Hip hop from Jeru the Damaja, Beastie Boys and Roots Manuva take us to the [...]
