BBC Radio 1 broadcasted a special Essential Mix by Coldcut and Seven Davis Jr this weekend.

It's available on the BBC iPlayer to download or stream for 30 days.

A celebration of our 25th anniversary as an independent label, founders Coldcut take the reigns in the first hour: "We wanted to represent as many of the current Ninja Tune roster as possible and also throw a couple of classics from the archives into the mix in addition to some influential and inspirational tracks."

In Hour 2 one of our newest signings Seven Davis Jr - who released his debut album Universes earlier this year - steps up with a fistful of exclusives from Steven Julien aka Funkineven, Jesse Rose and a monster remix of his own 'Sunday Morning' by Karizma aka Kaytronik: "I was really honoured when Ninja Tune asked me to represent the new generation of artists on the label," he says.

We're also pleased to say our Amsterdam Dance Event showcase at Melkweg with Bonobo, Machinedrum, George Fitzgerald, Leon Vynehall and Romare is now sold out. Please get back to me for guest list requests and if you'd like to meet up! Full details here:
