'Let Us Play' is the heartfelt cry of a generation that rejects being categorised, bought, used or homogenised. Themes that heavily influence the album are the impact of technology on a changing society, and the principles of DIY philosophy and zentertainment. Album comes with free chin, so you don't wear your own out.

Comprised of ex-art teacher Jonathan More and computer programmer Matt Black, Coldcut have been active in the UK electronica scene since the heyday of Acid House in the mid-1980s: releasing the first UK "sampling" disc ("Hey Kids"), launching the careers of Yazz and Lisa Stansfield, and establishing a formidable reputation as producers and remixers. Their fourth album--and the first on their own Ninja Tune label--Let Us Play is at once as dizzyingly eclectic yet as consistent in tone as one would expect from these innovators. Who else would (or, for that matter, could) bring together guests as diverse as ex-Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, legendary funk drummer Bernard Purdie and poet Salena Saliva? Hardly surprising: in applying the cut-and-paste aesthetics of multimedia, Coldcut delight in collisions of form and meaning: "Timber," for example, is an audio-visual collage that manages to be both a protest song (campaigning for an end to industrial logging, and using footage supplied by Greenpeace) and a hypnotic dance track. Electronic music at its most intelligent. --Andrew McGuireSee all Product description

Today, I enjoy making my own mashups, remixes and digital music. But I have to admit that this was the album that made me look at music, film and poetry in a new light. After my first listen to "Let Us Play," I quickly realized that we were stepping in to a new day in art and that the digital medium was quickly becoming the Playdoh of artists. Do yourself a favor before buying this album and watch the video for "Timber." Take yourself back to 1997 and see for yourself. This is where all that "intellectual copyright" stuff really began. (Yeah, I know that bands like Negativland and The Beasties were messing with it long before Coldcut, but Coldcut took it to another level. And they still do.)
True beauty with machinery.
