DJ Food – Solid Steel/Search Engine interview

Posted in art, books, free download, music, podcast, radio with tags , , , , , on January 20, 2012 by Nabil

just ahead of the release of his new album, The Search Engine, DJ Food (a solo Strictly Kev this time round) has been interviewed for Solid Steel Radio to give some insights into the making of his album (which you can hear in the background), the collaborators involved (The The’s Matt Johnson, J.G. ‘Foetus’ Thirlwell, 2econd Class Citizen, DK and Natural Self) and the artwork created by Henry Flint and Strictly Kev himself. he also discusses his own work as a designer (possibly his most famous piece being the iconic Ninja Tune logo) and you can hear a few of the tracks that have influenced him over the years which range from Adam & the Ants to Boards of Canada

also, the limited CD album itself (i received mine this morning having ordered early but it’ll be generally available from Monday) is a truly beautifully packaged item. a gorgeous, full colour, 48 page comic sized booklet packed with artwork, photos and more to hold the disc itself and inside that you’ll find an extra tack housed on a truly scrumptious flexi disc (you may well need to be over 40 to know what one of those is). the loveliest piece of plastic i’ve seen in a long time, a clear 7″ single with a high shine silver ‘label’ on the front side that is gold on the reverse. and you can buy that right here

King Cannibal – Cannibalism 2011 (free d/l)

Posted in audio visual mix, dj mix, film/dvd, free download, music with tags , , , , , , on December 24, 2011 by Nabil

here are a few words from King Cannibal on what you’re about to hear, “As we’re reaching the end of the year and i’m looking towards developing my set in to my newer productions in 2012 i thought it timely to take a glance back at the kind of sets i was playing out this year, for those who didn’t get a chance to see me or want to re-live one of the shows they caught me at. This was recorded for a show on 27th Aug at l’Usine in Geneva, Switzerland as it was to feature a big AV hook up and the crew needed to familiarize themselves with what i would be playing on the night. It’s somewhat of an expansion of The Way Of The Ninja mix cd released at the end of last year, but goes way beyond that.
