Solid Steel ft. DJ Food, Om Unit, DK

DJ Food

DJ Food has been many persons. DJ Food is best described as Food for DJs, simple as that, just flip it around and it begins to mean something entirely different. Matt Black & Jonathan More (aka Coldcut) were responsible for starting the DJ Food series of 'Jazz Brakes' back in the early 90's, and along the way they met Patrick Carpenter (PC) who was commonly misconstrued as the computer that they made the tracks on for a while. The DJ Food albums have developed with shades of latin, dub, techno, ambient, tribal, african and jungle flavouring the funk. The records consisted of collections of breaks, loops and samples, that could be used for mixing, remixing and producing. A loose collaborative team began to form as more like-minded people arrived at the party; Paul Brook, Paul Rabiger, Strictly Kev and Issac Elliston to name a few. Whilst keeping their hand in as DJs, Matt & Jon couldn't and didn't want to DJ twice in one night under both aliases of Coldcut & DJ Food, so PC & Strictly stepped up to represent the Food club-wise. This was the score for some time, until PC became so busy with his involvement in the Cinematic Orchestra that he decided to depart to concentrate on that, leaving Strictly Kev to carry the mantle.
