I’m both happy & excited to present this preview of Openmind’s (Strictly Kev) poster to accompany The Way Of The Ninja mix CD. Pre-Order the CD from the ninjashop to receive a free poster with each order.

Also if you head over to The Way Of The Ninja mini-site you can sign up to my mailing list and get a free download for the mini-mix ‘The 5 Minute Warning – A Ninja Tune Mix‘. This is the project that inspired TWOTN both as research wading through the audio archive for myself and the driving force for Ninja to ask for more.

Ninja Tune XX presents… King Cannibal – The Way Of The Ninja


My new mix, a retrospective of 20 years of all things Ninja Tune is released November 16th, but for those of you with Ninja XX boxset (pictured below) it can be downloaded right NOW using the codes provided in your packaging. I’m very happy to hear all the feedback on it has been more than positive so far, as this approach to mixing isn’t to everyones taste.

“This mix was constructed on planes, trains, hotel rooms and in the studio throughout the months May, June, July using vinyl, CDs, Wavs and a DAT in Ableton Live and Logic.

A suitably diverse number of locations, formats and tools for a diverse label like Ninja Tune. A label that spans two thirds of my life, from putting DJ Vadim records on my christmas list (Santa decided to go with Dr Octagon – Instrumentalyst instead) to being turned away from a sold-out show to celebrate the tenth Ninja birthday, i’ve truly grown up to the sounds of this label’s catalogue.

Ninja’s history being so entwined with my own only makes a project like this harder. An ignorant person may not feel guilty about leaving out something from Bogus Order’s Zen Breaks whose record was used for the static sound of needle hitting vinyl that appears a few times in this mix or for leaving out Drome. That problem is then compounded by the next – everyone knows the classics – Timber, Witness, Dark Lady… they’ve been on countless mixes before, but they need to be in here.. perhaps.. perhaps…. perhaps the way out is to get creative with these, to put a new spin on them. Ninja has a rich tradition of getting creative behind the turntables, from Coldcut’s groundbreaking ‘ 70 Minutes Of Madness’ Journeys By DJ mix to the diverse Solid Steel series, so why not try and up the ante a little?

So three months and a little over 250 tracks later I arrive at 74 minutes of music mixed, blended, sliced, diced, torn up and finally rendered to audio. A lot of classics, personal favourites, some slept on and a few exclusive acapellas and instrumentals care of the Ninja family. Sure there are some classics left off – The Crow immediately springs to mind, but as it stands this is The Way Of The Ninja’, not only a Ninja Tune retrospective but the sound of my last 20 years.”

Amon Tobin – Bloodstone King Cannibal Remix teaser


From CD4 of The Ninja XX Compilation here is a big chunk of my reworking of Amon Tobin’s Bloodstone, out 20th September. I’m really really happy with it, and happy it finally made it on to the compilation as it became i bit of a fight for it making the final cut (which is often going to be a struggle with a project this size). I’m sure this will be familiar to people at my recent shows.

On other Amon Tobin news an all new video for Esther is premiering on and on Tuesday the 7th September.

Zan Lyons directs Atari Teenage Riot – Activate


During  promotion duties for my first album the word ‘extreme’ came up a lot with regards my music. I’m not sure if those who suggested it had been drinking from the mainstream for too long as i can name a ton of albums that could crush the sounds on Let The Night Roar. Whitehouse, Dj Scud, Throbbing Gristle, Scorn and last but not least the output of Digital Hardcore Recordings – which were a big soundtrack to my years  working at Kingston’s branch of Beggars Banquet. Sometimes the music would disorientate me, sometimes it would give me a headache, but it’d always entertain me. So i’m happy that Atari Teenage Riot’s new video for Activate  has leaked, and that its by Zan Lyons, one hell of a softly spoken talent whom i have been lucky enough to see live twice this year, most recently re-scoring parts of Blade Runner at the BFI. Zan has big a big influence on me at opening my eyes to live visuals and this video certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Coming this November…
