It has a satellite office in Los Angeles. The label’s first releases—the first five volumes of DJ Food’s Jazz Brakes—were produced by Coldcut in the early 1990s, and celebrated by the music press and beat aficionados.
Following a Coldcut tour in Japan with Norman Cook, a. Fatboy Slim, then of Beats International, the label lifted its moniker and aesthetic from the Japanese TV shows of the 1950s and 1960s based on the Ninja. After Coldcut’s success with their first label, their titled Ahead of Our Time, contractual issues prevented them to release anything under their own name. In 1992, Peter Quicke stepped aboard as label manager, as did Patrick Carpenter, a. PC, who joined Coldcut as sound engineer. PC would become a crucial member of Ninja Tune, and from Jazz Brakes Vol. 4 onwards, an integral part of the DJ Food production team.
Steinski, a big inspiration behind Coldcut’s initial forays into music, released his first Ninja Tune EP as Steinski and Mass Media in the same year. Its pioneering influence on the genre became more prevalent with the label’s first compilation, Funkjazztical Tricknology, in 1995. Coldcut’s contribution to Britain’s flourishing scene was solidified by their Solid Steel show on London’s Kiss FM, on airwaves since 1988. The ongoing success of Solid Steel, and its subsequent syndication across the globe, broadcast the Ninja brand across the airwaves. Camberwell – at the Telepathic Fish chill-out club they were running. In 1995, The Herbaliser, one of the more purely hip-hop oriented acts on Ninja Tune’s roster at that point released their debut album Remedies. Remedies brought both the group and the label much attention.
