This Saturday [11th December] sees the official UK launch party of King Cannibal’s ‘Way of the Ninja’ at the Rhythm Factory in London. The recent Ninja Tune recruit has concocted a 250-tracks-in-74-minutes (!!) mega-mix to continue the 20th birthday celebrations of the ground breaking label. The jam-packed mixtape cuts, dices and slices it’s way through classic and upfront material from Coldcut and DJ Vadim to Prefuse 73 and The Herbaliser, from Roots Manuva and Wagon Christ to Funk Porcini and Amon Tobin.
The Rhythm Factory launch party features a line-up selected by the man himself, with Ninja Tune legend DJ Food set to make an appearance along with recent Warp contributor Buddy Peace and Brixton based producer Photomachine. It’s free entry all night and the first 100 through the door will get their paws on a King Cannibal goodybag.
