Groundbreaking UK imprint Ninja Tune continue their 25th anniversary celebration with a memorable Essential Mix which aired last week on BBC Radio 1. The two-hour session was helmed by label founders Coldcut (Matt Black and Jonathan More) and rising house sensation Seven Davis, Jr., who released his debut album, Universes, earlier in the year on the label.
“We wanted to represent as many of the current Ninja Tune roster as possible and also throw a couple of classics from the archives into the mix in addition to some influential and inspirational tracks,” said Black and More.
Seven Davis, Jr., whose hour featured exclusive tracks from Steven Julien (a.k.a. Funkineven), Jesse Rose and a remix of his “Sunday Morning” by Karizma (a.k.a. Kaytronik), was stoked at the opportunity to flex his mixing muscles. “I was really honored when Ninja Tune asked me to represent the new generation of artists on the label.”
