Freeload: Mr Scruff’s Ninja Tuna Mixtape

October 31, 2008

According to FADER style editor and London expat, Chioma Nnadi, the hottest party during her college days were thrown by Manchester DJ Mr Scruff who. We are in no position to disagree with that, but Scruff has also been producing his own music in the days since and it is probably familiar to you if you've watched television in the last five years. We actually still think "Ug" is the best UMC's song never made, and his new album Ninja Tuna, out now on Ninja Tune, has some similarly lazy jams on it. Mr Scruff was nice enough to send us this mix of a few songs from the album (check for "Whiplash") and like-minded deep cuts, and now we give it to you. Tracklists after the jump.
