Smoke Notes

The Ninja Tune dons being asked to provide a collection of influences for reissue imprint Harmless would seem cause for celebration, and the two coolest nerds in music certainly don't disappoint, bringing together an eccentric album full of quirky brilliance much like their own musical outings. There is southern funk, the Chosen Fews "Do Your Thing" and Esther Phillips Disposable Society providing a distinctly bluesy romp. Elsewhere early rap in the form of T La Rocks "Its Yours" and early ska, the Gaylads "Soul Sister", make for a rich musical spectrum, all directly linked by its own importance to the growth and development in its relative genre. Sounds a little like the principles of the duo's own ambitious label Ninja Tune doesn't it ? From the outer reaches we get the superb post-classical experiments of Arthur Russell on "Another Thought" and romantically tinged strings of Axel Kruggliers "Taxi Nocturno". Full of surprises and yet somehow connected to what is happening today, Coldcuts compilation is easy to enjoy and completely essential for anyone who thought they knew it all about music. Recommended.
