I was raised on Coldcut, or at least raised after my rebirth as a Ninja Tune baby. Cold Krush Cuts, a two-CD set mixed by Coldcut, DJ Food and DJ Krush, pretty much changed my whole perspective on DJs: these guys could rock a block party ’til the break of dawn with a sound just as at home at the Whitney Biennial as on a dancefloor. They’re still doing it, and like true producer-minded DJs they’ve brought in a stellar cast of MCs and collaborators on their upcoming full-length of originals, so give this one with Roots Manuva a spin or two.

I remember picking up "Bits and Peices" and just being amazed. all the terrific music and the interactivity on the CDrom. glad to see these guys coming back in full force.
I too got a bit of a Ninje Tune education a few years back. THis is an awesome return, and manuva sounding better than he has for a while too.
I'm a big Ninja Tunes fan myself. I'll certainly check this out. Thanks for the heads up!
