Diggin’ In The Crates: Xen Cuts
Posted in Digging In the Crates
Reputable Smorgasbord of DJ heaven
Finding information on these guys is very difficult. The best of what we could find is that Xen Cuts is a three-disc compilation album released by Ninja Tune for their 10th anniversary. Ninja Tune is a London-based record label crafted by DJs Matt Black and Coldcut. That's all fun and dandy, but the relatively unknown names do nothing to mask the unreal music that lies within.
Ninja Tune got a couple dozen of their DJs together and told them to have fun, go nuts, and be as innovative as possible when crafting their single tracks for CDs 1 - 3. They range anywhere from jazz to drum and bass to hip-hop to trip hop to chillwave to electronica. It's a reputable smorgasbord of DJ heaven.
Disc Two really seems to be the gold medalist of the trifecta. Below are four of our favorite tracks.
