Deconstructed Live: Luke Vibert/Wagonchrist DJ Set

If releasing records through such notables as Planet Mu, Mo Wax, Warp, Lo Recordings, Rephlex and Virgin wasn’t enough, Luke Vibert shifted to the sound shaolins at Ninja Tune for Musipal in 2001, an album which coupled chin-stroking intricacies with lithe funk and ill-mannered electro.

Luke was another DJ I approached in order to complete the Westcountry connection, and joined Metamatics, Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard on the DC roster. I’d written a feature on Musipal that month (read it here), and followed this up with an email to Ninja, who kindly passed it on. Luke was quick to respond, and became the 47th DJ at Deconstructed Live. His folks lived locally, and came down to hear him play, as did a load of old school friends. Here’s the first half of Luke’s set, with some tasty Bob James, disco and hip hop classics, as well as some Ninja exclusives and unreleased material.
