Lucy Over Lancashire

Heard this one on a mah show a couple of months ago.
The 16-minute, single track, ‘B’ side only, red vinyl, 45rpm 12” record was specially made to be broadcast via Steve Barker (the dub guru of The Wire magazine) and his ‘On The Wire’ programme on BBC Radio Lancashire in November 2006.

burial kicks


Great news! Burial is preparing a mix for the !k7 Records compilation series Dj Kicks.
According to the label: "We hear whisperings from the studio that he may treat his dearest dubstep, techno and even r'n'b tracks with his unique production style before mixing them with exclusive material..." Should be absolutely huge. Burial's DJ-Kicks installment drops June 23
