Coldcut - Journeys By DJ mp3 album

However, one thing that stands up, pretty much whoever you speak to, is the identity of the greatest DJ mix album of all time – that accolade goes to Coldcut’s incredible 70 Minutes Of Madness, their offering for the Journeys By DJ mix series, released in 1995. The wildly inventive mix, which incorporated hip hop, techno, funk and drum & bass (along with the Doctor Who theme tune and a host of crazed spoken word samples), redefined what a DJ mix should be, perfectly capturing the cut & paste ethic of the mid-90s in the process, while arguably inventing what became the pop mash-up. KF: I started on Solid Steel in 1993, and sometimes it would be all four of us and we'd do half an hour each.

The Classic Mix CD Series. 070 - Coldcut ‎'70 Minutes Of Madness – Journeys By DJ (1995). 5 years ago 5 years ago. Cut-Up. Much doper IMO. Such lush, mysterious ambiance leading perfectly into "Into the 90s".

Journeys by DJ originated as a UK dance music record label, which started as a series of DJ mix albums or mixtapes on the Music Unites label in 1992, and moved from London to New York City in 2000. Journeys by DJ was the first record label to focus exclusively on the art and format of the DJ mix, as opposed to singles, 12" singles, artist albums and compilations

This CD has inspired Coldcut to create their ColdKrushCuts mix and is definitely DJ Ransom's inspiration for his Physics Of Freestyle CD's.

From ninjatunexx.com:

This week's Ninja Tune giveaway is undoubtedly the ultimate, in both senses of the word. It's one of the very few, truly iconic pieces of dance music, of the type that people still refer to in feverish tones. Despite being only five years younger than Ninja itself, it's an hour of music that sounds every bit as thrilling as it did on its original release. In an age where eclecticism in DJing is once again in vogue, we'd like to respectfully make the point that Coldcut had the idea first.

Welcome then, to Journeys By DJ. The original, the best, the mother of all mixtapes. Taking in a dizzying array of styles (jungle, techno, house, hip-hop, pop and politicised punk all get a look in,) it also features some of the brightest stars in the history of dance-music-worth-listening-to. More than just a mixtape, it was a statement of intent, and stands today as a testament to everything that's possible when music is mixed together.

The JDJ mix cemented Coldcut's reputation as dance's broadest minds and deftest mixers, and planted a seed that is flowering in the work of every DJ today, fifteen years down the line.

This version of the mix is described by Jon More as follows:

"This version was done for the re-issue in 2002. It grew out of the original, but was re-balanced and re-jigged with extra content, and in fact has different tracks in if you listen very closely. I'd call it a reinterpretation of the first. We're happy to give this away on our twentieth anniversary, as it was an important mix for us that marked a pivotal moment of our career so far. Hopefully there will be many more to come!"
