DJ Food Kaleidoscope 4LP Marbled Blue Red Orange Vinyl

Quadruple LP including ‘Kaleidoscope’ on marbled blue 140g double vinyl plus the previously unreleased ‘Kaleidoscope Companion’ double LP on marbled orange and red vinyl, packed in a gatefold sleeve, including Music Declares Emergency poster/information flyer insert. Comes protected by bio-based shrinkwrap.

Released in April 2000, ‘Kaleidoscope’ marked a new era for the DJ Food alias first conceived by label founders Coldcut. Now under the expert control of fellow Ninjas Kevin Foakes, aka Strictly Kev, and Patrick Carpenter, aka PC, the album broke with the past by reflecting a possible future of beats and pieces. Twenty years later, amid the first national lockdown in England, Kev and PC decided to celebrate ‘Kaleidoscope’’s 20th Anniversary by digging through their personal archives for material from the original recording sessions. They found more than they bargained for, compiling versions, alternate mixes and unreleased ideas into a series of mixes that have now been further refined.

‘Kaleidoscope Companion’ and presented alongside the original album on quadruple vinyl. Opener ‘The Ents Go To War’, with its brooding arrangement and heavy drums, feels stunningly current, as does the hypnotizing dance between bassline and snare on ‘Skylark’ or the fidgety percussion and airy synthesizers of ‘Zoom Zoom’. Sonically, at least, DJ Food’s vision of the future wasn’t that far off and, as Kev remarked when they first released the mixes, some of these tracks “should have never been left in a drawer for two decades.”
