Ninja Tune Mashups

I still remember that Saturday afternoon…

In my younger days, I made regular visits to record stores in downtown Toronto, one of which included the Sam The Record Man near Yonge & Dundas (R.I.P.). There were listening posts throughout the store, one of which had a new release from Amon Tobin called Permutation. I figured that I’d give it a chance and see if I liked it.

It didn’t take long for the album to tighten its grip; the second track, “Bridge,” had me bobbing my head in a public music store. Fast forward to the present, where I own seven of his albums and three of his EPs, plus albums by other Ninja Tune artists like Bonobo and Cabbageboy. I’m not as gung-ho for the label as I used to be, but it’s safe to say that when Amon Tobin and Bonobo release albums, I’m going to buy them. (Side note: I never thought that Kelis would end up on the label when “Caught Out There” was blowing up, but she’s there now.)

As much as I like to diversify my mashup sources (instrumentals in particular), there are some wells I keep returning to and the Ninja Tune label is one of them. With that in mind, here is a listing of the mashups I’ve done thus far with Ninja Tune sources in them. The most recent mashup is at the top.
