DJ Food - One Man's Weird Is Another Man's World [2009, Ninja Tune]
With spliced-together samples and carefully-selected percussion breaks (including a performance by Dr. Rubberfunk), this EP from the collective known as DJ Food spins a variety of styles together into a chilled mix with some psychedelic flair. Pop, funk, electronica, and acid jazz bubble up freely, with some choice spoken-word samples to add some extra fizz, and while it’s on the short side, the variety keeps it strong, particularly in the ~13-minute “A Trick Of The Ear”.
SONIC BOOM #8 It slices! It dices! It joins line-wide crossover events: it’s SONIC BOOM! “Sonic/Mega Man: Worlds
Unite” Part Two: It was just another day at the races—y’know, the ones
with the giant spider-mechs? Things start to get weird, even for the
lovable, paranoid Sticks, when X and the Maverick Hunters
arrived! Meanwhile, the epic bromance of the century is rekindled as
the captured Drs. Eggman and Wily are forced to turn their life-long
nemeses—Sonic and Mega Man—into minions for the terrifying Sigma! After
the history-making “WORLDS COLLIDE” crossover event, Sonic the Hedgehog
and Mega Man unite once more—and this time Sonic Boom and Mega Man X are
joining the fray! Featuring cover art from the legendary Patrick “SPAZ”
Spaziante, a special “happy fun time crossover” variant by Ryan Jampole
and part 2 of the epic 12-part connecting variant cover series by
artist Ben Bates!
