Various - Solid Steel presents... DJ Food and DK: Now, Listen Again!
Now, Listen Again! is the second entry in the Solid Steel series to be mixed by DJ Food and DK. (They kicked it off six years ago with Now, Listen, fact fans.) The bias here is towards hip-hop and drum 'n' bass, although room is also found for the likes of The Human League, Aphex Twin and the occasional stretch of goofiness (trippy dialogue, the theme to the Are You Being Served? film; this apparently its first official release). Best bits: New Order's The Beach (Blue Monday instrumental), Z-Trip's remix of DJ Shadow's Right Thing and Qemist's kick-ass d 'n' b remix of Roots Manuva's Swords In The Dirt. DJ Food and DK can't (or won't) quite match 2 many dj's in terms of cheeky, crowd-pleasing moments, but the quality of blending and layering of tracks is always impressive.
