Ninja Tune delivers 39 tracks of superhero inspired tunes

DJ Food, who we’ve interviewed in these pages before (e.g. DJ Food Interview: Recording “The Search Engine”, Rolling Cigarettes with Herbaliser & Designing the Coolest Label Logo Ever), has put together a special mixtape in honor of Free Comicbook Day. We love us some DJ Food, who also did an amazing Tribute to the Beastie Boys “Paul’s Boutique” mixtape in homage to MCA a year ago when Adam Yauch passed. This 39-track Free Comic Book Day megamix features only tracks that mention comic book heroes — from MF Doom, Queen and Beastie Boys to Gravediggaz, Black Sabbath and Public Enemy. What a great idea, bordering on Neil Gaiman-esque genius. Give the Ninja Tune one-hour mixtape a listen below, preferably whilst perusing some classic Frank Miller era Daredevil or something…
