DJ Food steps out of the shadow of Coldcut and releases

DJ Food steps out of the shadow of Coldcut and releases

DJ Food steps out of the shadow of Coldcut and releases Kaleidoscope, which, true to its title, is a multifaceted refraction of beats and samples, all spinning and melding into beautiful patterns. The main style of the album is that of an aural landscape which succeeds in letting the imagination soar amongst the synths and whispered beats of the album. The only tracks which differ from this style are 'aging young rebel' which sounds like something a stoned Morricone would write, and is no less good for that, and Nocturne which is a fantastic tune, rising xylophone beats and breaks.

Apparently comprising recordings from 1996 right up to the year of its release, Kaleidoscope continues on from the proper DJ Food debut A Recipe for Disaster with a collection of beat-heavy turntablist productions that often hit the high peaks of their close friends Coldcut. Jazz is undeniably the backbone of this album, straight from the opener "Full Bleed" where a raw drumkit pounds out stuttered breakbeats with plenty of high-maintenance cymbal work.
