DJ Food started out as a project by Coldcut, where they would release food for DJs in the form of slabs of vinyl full of breaks and beats which DJs could use in their sets. They released a series of albums called Jazz Breaks, 5 volumes were released between 1990 and 1994. In volumes 4 & 5 Matt Black and Jonathan Moore were joined by DJ/Producer PC ( Patrick Carpenter), who with Strictly Kev and a few other guests took on the mantle of DJ Food.
Since the original series of breaks albums, there have been 3 further lps, and at least 5 DJ mix cds and a few singles.
Here is one of my favourite DJ Food tracks, the Crow, I have absolutely no idea if it was influenced by the comic and film with the same title, it is however a dark, brooding track which can be found on the Kaleidoscope album.
