DJ Food – “Search Engine, The” – [Ninja Tune]

Dianthus   2/8/2012   A Library, CD

After an 11 year hiatus, DJ Food is back in the space saddle on this intergalactic journey of sound and samples. Themes of robots, astronauts and retro science class flow through sunset colored nebulas and patterned drumwork from Dr. Rubberfunk. This 12 track creation also includes the vocal stylings of Natural Self and The The’s Matt Johnson. I dug the intro track’s psychedelic rock vibe and fuzzy bass as well as other laser streaming cuts. The track “Prey” contains some spooky voice work that would make Vincent Price proud and the final track throws you into the abyss and also schools you in the physics of sound. Overall, not your typical dj creation, but well worth a try on your favorite set of speakers.
