Ninja Tune was founded in 1990 by pioneers Matt Black and Jonathan More AKA Coldcut. Having blown up the airwaves with the 1987 remix of Eric B and Rakim’s ‘Paid In Full', the label was established to release their own productions alongside like-minded acts they were coming across that the majors eschewed. Since its inception, it has become a leading independent label best known for putting broken beat and British leftfield electronic music on the map, together with kickstarting the careers of DJ Food, Mr Scruff, and Amon Tobin to name a few.
Ninja Tune have since expanded their roster with the addition of a host of contemporary artists such as Actress, Floating Points and Bonobo, and continue to source and release plenty of boundary-pushing emerging talent; few independent labels in the UK could claim to have worked with such a broad spectrum of artists. Speak to any recording artist in electronic music right now, and they will agree that one dream label to release on is Ninja Tune.
