Rather lovely DJ Food Mixup featuring pop songs from the last 25 years

I think this might have been on XFM but it really is rather splendid, once you get past the first couple of minutes of talking it turns into a rather lovely trip down memory lane, and I heartily recommend everyone to have a bit of a listen and a boogie when they have a few minutes free.

This is a year or so old I think and I had one that didn't have Paul Morley on and then I got one with Paul Morley on and lost the first one and I much prefer the one without if you can get it. Is this one without him? 'Cos I'd like to get that one again.

I don't know how old it is or anything just thought i'd share the wealth. Reminds me of the DJ Spinbad 80's mixtapes, which are even more fantastic than this.. I really should YSI those mixtapes.

yeah, he did it early in '04, then redid it earlier this year w/Morely. it's great, always worth sharing.

yup. and my nearest moment of fame. a record of 'mine' (ie i had something of relevance that he wanted for the full fat version) is featured - albeit VERY buried in the mix ..

loving the new stuff.
headphone music of the highest order.
and the cover of GIANT originally by The The is just massive
- cant wait to hear the album version with Matt on it.

Coming out in February now. Had no compunctions about clicking on Pre-order. Only Ninja Tune I could still care about. So stoked.

did anyone here catch the dj food full dome show a while back in montreal ?


looks amazing, making feel excited re him performing this in the uk on saturday .

though i am rather nervous as to how my 9 yr old kid will deal with such an audio/visual overload !

mark e, Wednesday, 14 November 2012 15:36 (eight years ago) link

well, that was too f*cking intense.

24 hours later and whenever i shut my eyes i still see mad shapes and stuff flying at me from all angles.

who knew that extreme vertigo and dizzyness could be so much fun.

if you ever get the chance to see a 'full dome' show, then don't hesitate.

the "Companion" album is a highlights reel of these three mixes that PC and Kev did in the first weeks of lockdown: http://www.djfood.org/kaleidoscope-companion-mixes/

(More sleeve notes in that link too!)

Oh wow - what a treasure trove! Guess I've got my work cut out for me.

Side note, for some reason my work computer blocks djfood.org as a "compromised website".

I love The Crow so much.

peace, man, Friday, 16 July 2021 13:48 (two weeks ago) link

(and it's really nice to have two new versions on the Kaleidoscope Companion, which is out today!)

peace, man, Friday, 16 July 2021 13:50 (two weeks ago) link

listening now to the companion album.
2 versions of the Crow ?
I see Slow version in the tracklisting, but not another ?

mark e, Friday, 16 July 2021 13:56 (two weeks ago) link

ooh hang on, The Rook = second version ?
not got to that track yet.

mark e, Friday, 16 July 2021 13:59 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah, the Rook is the other one.

peace, man, Friday, 16 July 2021 14:30 (two weeks ago) link

Always felt it was a shame that they tampered with the perfection of the Funkungfusion version.
None of the other versions - the Kaleidoscope version, the dub from A Dubplate of Food, or the two versions on the Companion, have the majesty of the original's synth strings.

raven, Saturday, 17 July 2021 12:32 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah, that version is the first one I heard and absolutely my favorite. But imo all of their interpretations of it are great.
