Mr. Scruff – “Ninja Tuna” – [Ninja Tune]
Electronica/Dance: I wish I could apprentice with Mr. Scruff. He knows how to DJ. Alice Russell (2) and Andreya Triana (9) bring their sultry voices to this effort. Quantic (3), Roots Manuva (6), and Pete Simpson (stellar on 12) lend their hip vocals as well. Danny Breaks helps out on 7, and Andrew Kingslow is ever-present, most notably on keys. Mr. Scruff demonstrates his outstanding programming skills on each and every track. It is clear how he can hold a club mesmerized for an entire night as he is at the controls, choosing the rotation of funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, and rhythms with care and absolute mastery.
Picks: 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13.
