In anticipation of the January 27 release of Johnny Cash Remixed, Compadre Records/Music World Music has created a podcast featuring interviews with Snoop Dogg and John Carter Cash, son of Johnny and June Carter Cash.

Johnny Cash is an icon of American music whose work has touched every contemporary genre, from Rock to Pop, from Emo to Hip Hop. Twenty Johnny Cash classics (including “I Walk The Line”, “Folsom Prison Blues” and ‘Wide Open Road”) were licensed from legendary Sun Records, first record label home of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Roy Orbison, among others.

Top remixers and producers were recruited to bring the sensibility and technology of 2008 to recordings universally accepted as timeless, with the blessing and support of the custodians of Johnny Cash’s legacy.

An Interview With Ninja Tuna’s Mr. Scruff

335

Mr. Scruff is renowned for his funky musical wizardry. As a DJ he handily blends records from Fela Kuti to Bob Marley to long-forgotten soul gems. As a producer he creates a sensual brew of swampy downtempo and kicky dance beats. The man behind the music is just as sophisticated and quirky. Giant Step had a cuppa tea with Scruff and chatted about crappy sound systems, dancing fruit and all the other nonsense that goes on in clubs these days.
