Podcast 170: DJ Food & DK vs. Coldcut

XLR8R has been reveling in Ninja Tune's 20th anniversary all month long, and tonight the celebration steps up a notch with the Ninja Tune XX event in New York, to be followed this weekend by the equally enormous San Francisco and Los Angeles parties. To help ramp everyone up ahead of time, we're also sharing the final installment of our special Ninja Tune XX podcast series, and it's a doozy.

Is there a difference between this mix and the DK XX Anniversary mix for Dazed Digital last month? (their playlist is incomplete)

I found myself trying to use this mix as background noise as I studied, and it kept on pulling me in. So many different styles mixed seamlessly. From 4 on the floor dance, to uk grunge, to dub step, to almost d and b, to 2 step, to dance hall, to whatever the kids are calling this stuff these days. It made me so exited about life and music. It is crazy. I used an hour that I thought I was going to use studying, totally engrossed in the mix, starring at the wall in the library, bobbing my head to the music. Bravo!
XLR8R, keep up the good work. I feel like I should be paying taxes for this podcast!
