Special thanks to Mantis Radio and Darkfloor for providing this (tasty) piece of history that all Boards of Canada fans will want to grab immediately. Words below from Darkfloor blog, please check out their site for more great audio and news from the left field of music.
Myuzyk label owner, and all round Boards of Canada obsessive, Skywave Systems, has been nagging a certain DJ Food of illustrious Ninja Tune fame to up this mix he created back in 2002 ahead of the mighty Boards of Canada releasing their stunning LP Geogaddi. The mix was first aired back on Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel radio show on February 11th 2002.
DJ Food / Strictly Kev:I wanted to do something really special for this, being a big fan of the group. There was a lot of secrecy surrounding this record and I was given a copy of the album just before the release. I rushed through it in a weekend to make the deadline for the radio show so that this could be out the week it was released. As a thankyou I made 10 copies in a foldout hexagon sleeve, each with a different sticker inside and a 3″ CD containing the mix. I sent four to Mike & Marcus, two to Warp and kept four for myself.
