This remix chain brings together producers from around the world, each linked by samples as well as membership of the Ninja Tune record label’s online forum.
It’s apt Ninja Tune has inspired remix projects. The label was established by Coldcut, whose reworking of Eric B and Rakim’s ‘Paid In Full’ in 1987 has been described as a “benchmark remix” by The Guardian newspaper.
The first remix chain was started in England with Kelp’s track ‘Oceandrift’ and the remixes that flowed from the ambient composition featured a variety of electronic music genres.
This remix chain begins in England with the initial track provided by Pete Sasqwax. His bio follows:
Pete Sasqwax stands 6'3", wears size 13 shoes and can be often seen sporting a beard large enough that you could probably conceal one of his shoes within it (if you so desired).
Initially releasing music under the name Waxfactor, the closure of the Needlework label (which released his debut 12" and album) saw him change his name to Pete Sasqwax (going by the name SasQwax for a while in the in-between stages).
