Classic DVD Review: Various Artists | ZenTV

This two-hour Ninja Tune retrospective is the perfect DVD for your next party.

This came out in 2004 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


The eternal conundrum: What to do with the TV at your house party? Leaving it off never works, but a mute TV is even more distracting.

The solution: ZenTV, the new DVD retrospective from electronica / dance label Ninja Tune. This set packs more than two hours of Ninja’s best beats, cuts and breaks, including clips from groove merchants Cold Cut, funktastic band The Herbaliser, Canuck turntable trickster Kid Koala and plenty more. Plus, unlike most music DVDs, the music is pretty much tailor-made for getting down with your bad self. Now, all you have to do is hide the remote.
