Product Description

In the book of funkjazztickle tricknology, it is written that ALL things taste stealthy, as long as your psychedeli-diet is balanced across the board. if Variety is the Spice of life, welcome to a veritable vindaloo, a firing falafel, a tumpin tortilla of tunes with fat funky fillings and whirld-wide flavas ...Dj FOOD serves ya wid a "RECIPE FOR DISASTER".

In his contekstual growth from child to adult, DJ FOOD has suffered a hifi-dentity crisis; in earlier years he was branded as a compilation of breaks and grooves, a mere quick-stop take-away on Hip-Hop-high street;but no longer, for da froot has grown from the root of his yoot' , and yes, now, the menu has changed. Sole food sustenance and ghetto-pasta, as prepared by meisterchefs PC and tha bruthas cOldcut. Getting down to the 'art of the Platter...

Can we offer you some ruffage? 'Spiral" is a deep dish of dancefloor hiphopnotism where blood-red beetz predominate the flava, whilst 'Inosan' caters for those who like their food moody - a perfeck puree of pumping parsnip-hop. 'Scratch Yer Head' and 'Scratch Yer Butt" are simply pasta-pieces of the hip and the hop; forget pitch-control, this is a lesson in itch-control. If it burns, sk-skr--skratch it.Baaaaad.

Perchance your inner palate calls for a more funky traditional dish, like the jungle-splashed 'Akaire' or 'Brass Neck', served with a garnish of horny horns and crunchy breaks; perhaps you require a snack before bed-time, in which we recommend the lush milky chords of 'Dark River' or 'The Dusk', a deli-cate creme of moon soup. If break-fast is the order of the day, try a bite of the Latin-flavoured "Half-Step", or 'A Little Samba',that slips down the throat of your ears like buttered B-b'oysters. And just desserts, for tha flava of tha month; taste the exquisite 'Fungle Junk', a ripe, hype slice of jungle funk made with fresh f'roots from the bassssket.

Food to make you healthy in body, wealthy in behind, and stealthy in spirit. And if ya can't stand the beatz, git out tha kitchen...... A "Recipe for Disaster" - available in a Stealth-food shop near you soon.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this, but the upbeat, original amalgamation of jazz, hip hop, trip hop, breakbeat and funk won me over immediately. Though varied, it has a distinctive style - humourous and bouncy yet very tasteful. The production is excellent too, and if you buy this (which I really recommend) it will keep finding it's way back to the CD player time and time again. If you like Herbaliser, Shadow, Coldcut, London Funk Allstars you will love this!

4 decks, 3 blokes, pure funkgasm - go buy it, now!! 1 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
DJ Food, a team of geniuses, I can`t believe I`m the first person to review this album on this slot, grooves fly like yoyo`s, scratching- feels good... DJ Food , now on Ninja Tunes, is one of a growing number of djs` leading the dance/jazz evoloution. ( I hope i`ve spelt that right ) Inventive eclectic djaying, Low key and up beat, tunes that make you want to smile and hug the person next to you. And live... it`s impossible not to just get up and dance. Also well worth listening to is an album called Cold Krush Cuts, which features a sixty minute cd, Cold Cut vs. Dj Food, playing a ninja tunes back catalogue and one of Dj Krush, it`s got everything an album should have and more. It`s so good it seems criminal to restrict it`s definition to acid jazz, it`s just great music. Alternatively browse through the ninja tunes catalogue yourself and pick just about any cd you like `cos it`s all top quality stuff. Go out and buy it, then tell your friends! =:)

Old School 6 Dec. 2008
By Cedarview - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yeah this is a classic disc from back in the day. Used to be that there was an avalanche of quality trip hop / house / downbeat jazz music infecting the record store. Those were some of the good old days. DJ Food was pretty consistently of high quality with atmospheric beats, cinematic touches you could really get into, depending on your state of mind. Definitely some DJ Shadow influence here, but Shadow's sound trickled into a lot of music back then, not always with as gratifying results as this. I've listened to this disc probably hundreds of times in hundreds of settings and it never fails to make me nod my head. If looking for a slice of the old school from a time when electronic music was eclectic and fun to listen to, this would be a great place to start.

Buy this while you can 15 Oct. 2007
By B. Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is some of the best to emerge from the Ninja stable - highly recommend this one. If you've enjoyed DJ Food prior, you'll love this. Get it now while it's still in stock. If you're unfamiliar here's a few words to help you gain an impression - jazzy (but in a warm way), cinematic (ditto), musical (i know. "musical music? wtf?"), dreamy, listenable (ie it's foreground music, not background), thoughtful. (That sounds way earnest, which is a pity because it's simply enjoyable - not just for the head-nodders, y'know?) Taking contemporary music trends of the hip-hop, trip-hop flavours, it's circa mid-late nineties stuff I think, but has aged well, and has been on medium rotation for me since I was introduced five years ago. I've since bought everything with DJ Food on the label, and there are many gems in the Food canon. Enjoy.
some great REAL upbeat funky hip-hop beats !!! 26 Mar. 2015
By tree hugger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
it's too bad REAL hip-hop like this has been replaced by crappy gangsta and booty rap or soulless techno unworthy of being danced to. there are SEVERAL great beats on this disc you should check out at grooveshark or youtube including: bass city roller, spiral, taste strange and mr. quickie cuts the cheese, so it's not a lame one hit wonder disc but an awesome deal used.

if you like this "ninja tune" style, you should also check out: mr. scruff, treva whateva, doop, fatboy slim, birdy nam nam C2C (eg. DMC 2005), skalpel, nightmares on wax, giant panda, malcom mclaren or early art of noise out. beats that put the fun in funky like these are hard to come by

Smashing, super and ripping! 5 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Kia ora. To be brief, this album is a must for jaded ears. There's a good variety of 'acid jazz' cuts that keeps one's interest up throughout the album. Ninja Tunes' albums are always good, but this is the bees knees. Say no more.
