Various Artists Solid Steel Presents DJ Food & DK: Now, Listen Again!
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Ninja Tune
British collective DJ Food originally made its name in the '90s by providing selectors with tasty breaks, but the tables have turned in the new millennium. On their latest, the crew joins forces with fellow Brit DK for the genre-melting mix Now, Listen Again! Sure, they often employ the familiar mash-up method of mixing, though this party-to-go is far-reaching enough to not sound trite. When not giving Eric B & Rakim classics a Timbaland makeover and vice-versa, DJ Food and DK manipulate instrumentals by New Order or just let reggae riddims ride. As much music as they take on, it's dumbfounding how seamless this mix truly is.
