DJ Food - Raiding the 20th Century

Postby dee3 » 16 Nov 2005 17:13

If you're into turntablism, then I'd like to you to check out DJ Food's killer pile-up mix "Raiding the 20th Century".
Both the original and the extended DeLuxe version can be DL'ed via/from:
http://www.djfood.org/

Here's the PR-blurb planked directly from the site:
"On January 18th 2004, Strictly Kev premiered the original 'Raiding The 20th Century' on XFM's 'The Remix' show in London.
It was a 40 minute attempt to catalogue the history of cut up music - be it avant garde tape manipulation, turntable megamixes or bastard pop mash ups.
It rapidly spread throughout the web and managed to cause a full scale server crash on boomselection.info when they hosted it due to the volume of net traffic.

Shortly afterwards he read Paul Morley's recently published book 'Words & Music' and was amazed that certain chapters mirrored parts of his mix.
Apart from the fact that the title, 'Raiding the 20th Century' was coined by Morley 20 years before for a future Art of Noise project, he also featured Alvin Lucier who - purely by chance - was sampled on the opening track of the mix.

Kev decided to expand his idea to make the defnitive document on cut up music including many other parts, omitted by the constraints of the original radio session.

After months of further research he tracked Morley down and they recorded passages from 'Words & Music' specially for this mix in an attempt to marry the two and finish something that neither of them actually started.

A year to the day of the original airing, the newly expanded version is ready."


With Paul Morley's voice-over on the deluxe version, then one could say that there's a connection to 808 State! (albeit slight!) :wink:
But screw that - both mixes are excellent, IMHO; that is if you're into turntablism-stuff from Ninja Tune etc.

Now, go get 'em!

'later,
Don

Top bloke (met Kev earlier this year), and a damn fine DJ set (saw him at this year's Big Chill).

Recommend the mix in question - well worth the download. 8)
