Ninja Tune To Release Triple Disc Set

Pioneering U.K. label Ninja Tune has never rested on its laurels, despite introducing to the world name-brand dance acts like Mr. Scruff, Kid Koala, Cinematic Orchestra, and Roots Manuva. Those acts, plus some 30 others, comprise the forthcoming 50-track three-disc collection, You Don’t Know: Ninja Cuts, available on our shores June 10.

The fifth Ninja Cuts collection in the label’s illustrious 18-year history, the collection features nine unreleased tunes by Coldcut, the aforementioned Mr. Scruff, alongside new names on the roster, such as Baltimore’s The Death Set, Montreal’s Ghislain Porier, and London’s The Bug. Styles from hip-hop and turntablism to downtempo and experimental indie-rock showcase a label known for its consistency and reliable output. And the name is fitting. After all, most know Ninja for artists like Amon Tobin or Bonobo. But Wiley, Durrty Goodz, and The Long Lost? That’s just Ninja being Ninja–hard to categorize, but dope.
