Probably one of the finest mix tapes ever made. Has Photek's alia Truper - Streetbeats vol 2 a side as the intro track..enough said.

This dj mix lets the listener enter a world of music that for the most part, he or she would not easily be concerned about.
So many styles are displayed that 'shouldn't' work together but in this context, actually do. It's like a musical equivalent of a pizza - there are certain toppings that you wouldn't normally touch, but mixed with others that you do like, it's fine.
Jonathan More & Matt Black are geniuses with a wealth of musical knowledge behind them gained from years of pirate radio and warehouse parties. It was only a matter of time before this Journey was travelled.

This really is one of the best CD's in my collection. (It really is that good!) The mix starts with a brooding rhythim before going into some deep amens courtesy of The Truper (aka Photek) and swifly moves from breaks, (Plastikman, Coldcut) to Hip Hop, (BDP) and into some luscious female vocals (Joanna Law). All with some of the best samples and scratches thrown in along the way.
Just one word of warning. Don't try and track these records down as most of them won't sound as good as they do on here. (My personal opinion of course)
Absolutely Essential.

'Journey By Dj' it's called and a fantastic and totally enveloping journey it is... navigated through all the styles by the man with all the skills and vision, Coldcut. The journey encompasses everything from reggae, to dub, jungle, house, funk, soul, electro, techno, soundscapes... even a spoken word from the infamous Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedy's fame. At moments frantic and frenetic, others smooth and flowing, the way he's crafted this whole mix into one cohesive whole is trademark Coldcut.
This classic still sounds fresh, as though it could've been released just last year. If you haven't heard this already, go out and do so.

This is the most interesting, emotive and kicking dj-mix ever burned on a cd. Coldcut forced the idea of their glorious Eric B & Rakim Remix and streched it to 70 minutes of pure SOUL and FUNK, just real good music. They mixed Hip Hop, Drum'n'Bass, Downbeat, Female Vox, Samples and Scratches in fantastic turntable action and huge dj skills to a acoustic story that you never can be tired. This was the greatest moment in the history of cd-dj mixes. Try this and you'll know that you live.
