i wasn’t going to miss the ninja tune tour when i was a student in ‘98, and the show did not disappoint. scratching audio-visual samples? crazy. and there’s the let us play album, which came with a cd-rom that was a year ahead of me having a computer powerful enough to actually run it.
but, sometimes, it’s hard to escape the past. their latest visual collaborator, matt sharp, had updated everything using oh-so now style transfer techniques. this was perfect: bang-on homage to coldcut’s ethos and actually stylish!
