Boomkat Product Review:
The Kid is back in style with a genuinely hand-built selection of cut-up blues for the Ninja tunas. For '12 Bit Blues' the unfeasibly talented scratch-master returns to his hip hop roots, feeding wax samples into the foundational SP1200 sampler and arranging them - by hand, no computers allowed - onto multitrack recordings to which he later applied his wristy magic. The result is a hugely endearing collection of party and head music that rescues the blues from "beer adverts and the jam fantasies of middle aged marketing executives" and gives it a low-slung and crafty vitality. It's insane to think how much effort went into this, and we think some heads are about to be flipped.
