Smoke Notes

London based Ninja Tune have always been equally innovative in both music and marketing, and this companion album to the Retropsective compilation (which acted as a ten year "best of") is a collection of remixes, showing the scope and constantly challenging nature of the imprint, and while it may not quite reach the dizzy heights of the Retropsective disc, you will find that once you are living with one, you can't live without the other. Japanese counter culture weirdos Cornelius open proceedings, taking on Coldcut's "Atomic Moog", and concentrating on the the Moog, turning in a laidback slice of post pop fun. Warp records bedroom boffin Squarepusher is heavily represented across the two discs, remixing DJ Food's "Scratch Yer Head" and hip-hop crew East Flatbush Project's "Tried By 12" in his radical futurist style. Luke Vibert is another brilliant UK producer well known to most Ninja Tune fans, here he turns in an excellent remake of 2 Player's "Extreme Possibilities" and an equally thrilling take on DJ Food's "Turtle Soup", blurring the lines between hip-hop and electronica with apparent ease. The rise of the post-rock musician is apparent too, with Four Tet remixing Bonobo's "Pick Up" in a glitch and bass style, and the exotic Manitoba putting the brakes on Mr Scruff's "Sweetsmoke". Other highlights include Dr Rockit's version of Cinematic Orchestra's "All That You Give", with Matthew Herbert proving that no matter which alias he works unders the results are compellingly beautiful, while the oldest cut here, Irresistible Force's remix of Coldcut's "Autumn Leaves", is both very rare and a lush slice of post-rave ambience. Most labels barely have this much good music in their entire catalogue let alone this just being the highlights, and it all goes to prove that Ninja Tune are among the UK's leading independents in any form of music. If you are a newcomer to this label then you are geniunely in for a special treat, while disicple's of this wonderful label will find joy in having this batch of superb (and hard to find) remixes all in one place. Brilliant contemporary music of the highest order. Recommended. Import Title In Stock Now.
