Long the preserve of web designers who enjoy a spliff at weekends, Coldcut’s Ninja Tune label has, in its 12 years, released a lot of old cobblers. Gratifyingly, few stinkers sour this 32-track round-up of their best moments. Champions of the cut’n’pasted funky break, its tasteful acts such as Mr Scruff, Bonobo and Amon Tobin are perennial faves of TV ad directors. Within their catalogue lie fantastic offerings from Luke Vibert, Kid Koala and DJ Food. Buy this and its more attractive sister compilation, Zen Rmx, and you’ve enough Ninja Tune for life.
