one man's weird is another man's world

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”.

Here’s the alternate cover art.

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!
