Album notes
A host of collaborators joins DJ Andy Carthy (better known as Mr. Scruff) for 'Ninja Tuna', the fourth album in his canon. With a pinch of his customary homespun sense of humour and love of all things soulful and jazzy, Carthy blends his tunes across a range of soundworlds, encompassing funk and light electronica. Guests include the likes of British hip-hop legend Roots Manuva, Alice Russell and Will Holland of the Quantic Soul Orchestra. 'Ninja Tuna' is the first record to be released on a collaborative label of the same name that sees Mr. Scruff and the Ninja Tune label working together closer than ever.

This week is Cystic Fibrosis Week. "What's Cystic Fibrosis?" you might ask. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the UK's most common life-threatening genetic diseases that affects over 9,000 British citizens. Caused by a faulty gene that around 1 in 25 people carry, CF mainly affects the lungs and digestive system (along with the host of other symptoms). Each week five babies are born with CF and while there has been vast improvements in treatment of CF only half the CF population will live past 41. Heavy stuff, we know.
To help raise money and awareness of the disease, we've decided to auction off some rare and limited edition goodies found in the Ninja Tune & Big Dada warehouse.

As part of our giveaway we're giving away a signed copy of Mr. Scruff's 'Ninja Tuna'.

Press Release:
A bollocking big fish that can sneak past armed guards dressed in black pjs before unleashing a deadly attack using only the tops the of the tin cans which were meant to entomb him.

The Eric Morecambe of contemporary dance music (by which we mean he’s a genius, not that he wears glasses) returns to the long-playing record fray with his first studio album since the scrumptious 'Trouser Jazz' and he’s sounding in finer fettle than ever. 'Ninja Tuna' is an album that mixes up all of Andy Carthy’s favourite influences and turns them into a funny, unique, amiable and distinctively British sound which will start parties, destroy dancefloors and soundtrack your spring cleaning so successfully you’ll find yourself getting deep into that dusting.

From the soul-jazz of 'Music Takes Me Up' (featuring the golden lungs of Alice Russell), through the cartoonish tail-swishing of 'Donkey Ride', on into the monstrous bass parps of 'Whiplash', past a superb cameo from Roots Manuva ('Nice Up The Function') and across the bit where the bass comes back and is Stronger And More Dangerous Than Ever ('Bang The Floor' with Danny Breaks), this is an album that just keeps on growing on you. Every tune has been roadtested at Scruff’s epic club nights and it shows on the disco-builder 'Get On Down', the muddy funkster 'Hold On' (featuring Andreya Triana), the utterly massive 'Give Up To Get' and a latino finale held together by 'Kalimba' and the endearingly ramshackle 'Stockport Carnival'.

Mr Scruff’s combination of taking his music very seriously while managing not to take himself too seriously has made him unique in British dance and has helped him forge a sound and philosophy in which drinking tea holds mythological status and where it’s always the music which gets you high. 'Ninja Tuna' is his finest work to date, moving with all the power and grace of a fifty ton whale deep below the ocean, its cavernous belly packed with happy, partying potato people. Cod, it’s good.

“Probably his best work to date, and that’s a pretty big claim.” Times
“Foot-tapping funk and ball-busting breaks. Get the kettle on, pour yourself some local ale and enjoy.” Mixmag
