I heard Rik needed a sub for "Last Dance at the Death Disco" and jumped on that right away. I'm really glad I did, because it turned out to be a really fun show. I started out with epic Amon Tobin cinematica, dug around on the internet for the latest releases and news in the Ninja Tune community, got a little funky with some old school ninja beats... I just had some fun with it.
Download the show here.
