Archive Digging: DJ Food’s Tribute To Kraftwerk


I was checking out Lost In A Supermarket and came across this Madman Mundt post. Apparently years ago DJ Food (you know, Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel Radio pioneer) put together a series of mixtapes as homage to Kraftwerk. This is the third in the series and features “cover versions, sample-heavy tracks or songs that obviously owe a debt to the Dusseldorf quartet.” It originally aired on Jan 17 2005 and is now resurfacing. Enjoy...we did.
