Book Description

12 Aug 2010 Labels Unlimited
Celebrating their twentieth anniversary in 2010, Ninja Tune have been dedicated to publishing inspiring electronic music for the past two decades. The label was established by two friends Matt Black and Jonathan More, who wanted a new label for their venture Coldcut. The label's discography encompasses a wide range of contemporary music: The Cinematic Orchestra; Roots Manuva; Mr Scruff; Steinski; Amon; Kid Koala; The Herbaliser and these are just some of the classics. The book tells the story of the record label, the artists themselves, their art and the ways in which their influence was and is felt in the larger culture. The book displays a visual discography, is lavishly illustrated with historic photography, and includes exclusive interviews with the label's artists, and the minds who shaped the roster. It's the story of a tiny label surviving and thriving while the majors run aground, the story of a unique vision and an all-embracing approach, championing the creativity of their artists at all costs. Ninja Tune appeal stretches far beyond Ninja Tune's already-established legion of followers: making this a must-read for any music fan with even a passing interest in adventurous music, and the triumph of ideas, passion and guerrilla creativity in the face of a factory-tooled mainstream.

Product Description


A beautifully illustrated encyclopedic history of the label --The Independent

Needless to say, given the importance design has played in the labels history, this is a properly lovely book to just browse, indeed it repays repeat dipping rather than one in depth hammer through and will certainly appeal to both fans of the label and anyone with even a passing interest in art and design. --Total Music Magazine

Ultimately, that what this is: a retrospective of 20 years of some of the best music and the best parties of our lives. And if that isn't a date worth celebrating, then I don't know what is. --Stool Pigeon

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful reward for twenty years. 14 Oct 2010
After 20 years of being a listener, the book is a wonderful reward. The 100 box set contained more beautiful books, posters an amazing box, and 4 extra CDs. This book features plenty of the old photos from Hoxton Square, some really interesting archive comments on cover art, and a really well designed journey through Solid Steel's history.
