From 1995’s ‘Recipe For Disaster’ onwards, DJ Food has mixed 100s of hours of audio for compilations (Including Coldcut’s Journey’s By DJ mix), radio and the web using his vast experience and record collection. Now Listen! is one of his most famous records. Rescoring The Monkees’ cult classic film ‘Head’ on turntables or inviting Paul Morley to narrate a history of cut and paste music on his ‘Raiding the 20th Century’ mix are just two examples of personal projects he created during the 2000s.
In tandem he has enjoyed a career as chief designer for Ninja Tune since the early 90s, running parallel with his music making. In 2010 he was responsible for the entire look and design of the Ninja Tune XX campaign and releases that celebrated 20 years of the label.
His last album, 2012’s ‘The Search Engine’, featured JG Thirlwell (Foetus), The The’s Matt Johnson and Natural Self across several vocal cuts. The launch party was conducted in the London Planetarium with a 50 minute 360 degree full dome visual showcase made by Kev in conjunction with their astronomers.
