Ninja Tune

Ninja Tune is an English independent record label based in London. It has a satellite office in Los Angeles, it was founded by Matt Black and Jonathan More, better known as Coldcut and managed by Peter Quicke and others. Inspired by a visit to Japan and More created Ninja Tune in 1990 as a means to escape the creative control of major labels, to act as a vehicle to release music of a more underground nature, free from the restraints that were put on them via their brief stints with Arista and Big Life; the label has been called "visionary" and "reliably excellent". It has signed a diverse range of artists, has created its own publishing company, Just Isn't Music, finds innovative uses of software; the label's first releases—the first five volumes of DJ Food's Jazz Brakes—were produced by Coldcut in the early 1990s, celebrated by the music press and beat aficionados. They were composed of instrumental sample-based cuts that led the duo to help pioneer new instrumental hip hop beats genres and, to this day, are recognized as being indispensable tools for DJs.

The label has since released music of myriad artists and distributes other record labels – including Big Dada and Technicolour Records. Following a Coldcut tour in Japan with Norman Cook, a.k.a. Fatboy Slim of Beats International, the label lifted its moniker and aesthetic from the Japanese TV shows of the 1950s and 1960s based on the Ninja. With their first releases in the early 1990s, Ninja Tune went on to, according to Pitchfork, "usher in trip-hop/instrumental hip hop". After Coldcut's success with their first label, Ahead of Our Time, contractual issues prevented them from releasing anything under their own name. Ninja Tune's inaugural release was Coldcut's house break collection Zen Brakes Vol. 1 in 1990. The label got a bigger name for itself when Coldcut, as DJ Food, released their funky hip hop jazz-breaks album, Jazz Brakes Vol. 1, according to Record Collector, "blew up" in the DJ circuit. DJ Food's Jazz Brakes series were intended as musical "food" or, in other words, source material for DJs and producers who worked with breaks and beats.

In 1992, Peter Quicke stepped aboard as label manager, as did Patrick Carpenter, a.k.a. PC, who joined Coldcut as sound engineer. PC would become a crucial member of Ninja Tune, 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; the single, in the words of Pitchfork, "builds on a catchy loop of the Jackson 5's'It's Great to Be Here' and creates one of the few anti-Gulf War protest songs of the era, transforming Bush's speech into a pop hook and interspersing quotes from Jello Biafra and Mario Savio's famous 1964 address to the Berkeley Free Speech Movement". Between 1994 and 1997 Ninja defined the instrumental hip hop beats sound further, its pioneering influence on the genre became more prevalent with the label's first compilation, Funkjazztical Tricknology, in 1995. The genre originated in England as a successor to acid house, taking in acid jazz and funk, using hip hop style breakbeats rather than the mechanical'4 on the floor' drum rhythm of house.

Ninja artists looked beyond the normal sampling sources of old funk records into jazz, epitomised by Ninja act The Cinematic Orchestra. 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, its subsequent syndication across the globe, broadcast the Ninja brand across the airwaves. The late night Saturday show cut all manner of beats and loops into a chaotic musical blend; the show's'everything but the kitchen sink' approach continued through Coldcut's "utterly brilliant" Journeys by DJ series of mix compilations in 1995. The title 70 Minutes of Madness was a nod to Coldcut's earlier Eric B & Rakim remix, included sounds from Depth Charge, DJ Food, Mantronix, Harold Budd and the Doctor Who theme. In 1994, Matt Black's close friend Mixmaster Morris introduced Matt to Openmind - a DJ & design collective in Camberwell - at the Telepathic Fish chill-out club they were running.

Openmind included Kevin Foakes a.k.a. Kev of DJ Food. After submitting a re-styled company logo he was employed by Ninja Tune in the capacity of overall design consultant. Matt Black invited Foakes to Ninja's recording studio, where he joined the many hands at work on DJ Food's 1995 album, Recipe for Disaster; the album was called a "whirlwind of beats put through the blender" and proved a good cross-selection of the group's various styles. 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. In 1995, an album launch party for DJ Food's Recipe for Disaster was the beginning what would become a regular club night, Stealth. Stealth was named Club of the Year by NME in 1996, with guests including Kruder & Dorfmeister, Ashley Beedle, James Lavelle, Kid Koala and the label roster. Around the same time, Ninja Tune began organizing its first package t

Australian Soil Classification

The Australian Soil Classification is the classification system used to describe and classify soils in Australia. It is a general-purpose, hierarchical classification system, consists of five categorical levels from the most general to the most specific: order, great group and family. An interactive, online key is available; the Australian Soil Classification supersedes other classification systems developed for Australian soils, including the Factual Key and the Handbook of Australian Soils. At the top, most general, level of the Australian Soil Classification, there are fourteen soil orders, they are: Anthroposols, Podosols, Hydrosols, Sodosols, Calcarosols, Dermosols, Kandosols and Tenosols. The character of the soil orders reflects the arid, strongly-weathered nature of the Australian continent. For the Vertosol, Sodosol, Ferrosol and Kandosol orders, the suborder-level categories reflect the dominant colour of the upper part of the B2 horizon. There are five suborder colour categories, namely Red, Yellow and Black.

The colour classes have the same names as, but are not directly equivalent to, those used in the Factual Key and estimated using a subset of the Munsell Colour System. The full suborder designation becomes Red Kurosol, Grey Vertosol, for example; the remaining soil orders have suborder categories that reflect unique characteristics of the given order. For example, the Hydrosol order is split into Intertidal Hydrosols, Supratidal Hydrosols, Extratidal Hydrosols, Hypersalic Hydrosols, Salic Hydrosols, Redoxic Hydrosols and Oxyaquic Hydrosols. On the other hand, the Rudosols are split into Hypergypsic Rudosols, Hypersalic Rudosols, Shelly Rudosols, Carbic Rudosols, Arenic Rudosols, Lutic Rudosols, Stratic Rudosols, Clastic Rudosols and Leptic Rudosols at the suborder level.
