Grant Phabao and Djouls - Ninja Tune - 20 Years of Remixes and Re-interpretations
(MP3 Podcast on 2010-08-15

Lots of stuff are happening for the celebration of the last 20 years of musical activism from the english label Ninja Tune. A huge boxset is on its way for september, with LOTS of new music, there are parties coming up everywhere, and the french magazine Trax has just released a special number (Ninja Tune 20 Ans...), for which I've been asked to write 3 articles. The first one is about 20 of the rarest pieces of wax released by the label. The second one is a selection of 20 astonishing or stunning remixes, here's the soundtrack, for a deeply blunted evening. The third one is about the dark side of the label, with a selection of 20 psychedelic albums. The soundtrack mix to this article will be coming up here very soon...
