Gone Diggin' the Remix
Possibly the most essential new vinyl release at the moment is the "Gone Diggin' Remix" b/w "33.3" 10 inch single available on SLICE OF SPICE RECORDS. Nothing pleases me more to see two people I consider bastions of real Hip Hop music combine forces on vinyl at long last. I am of course referring to Strong Island hot property OXYGEN, and Brighton's own DJ FORMAT. FORMAT has taken the diggers anthem "Gone Diggin'" and laced it with oodles of breakbeat goodness to mirror OXYGEN's lyrical references. On the flipside the pair continue the vinyl hunting theme with a new track called "33.3". If you cannot guess what the track is about then I'm guessing you landed on this website by mistake!
Take a peep at the soundclips, and get yourself over to the SLICE OF SPICE site to bag your copy before they're all gone. I had lots of people ask about the 45rpm 7" version months after it sold out, so don't be one of those who misses out on this project. You will regret it. Shout out to my good friends (and fellow VINYL VETERAN members) OXYGEN and DJ FORMAT; the shit is dope fellas ... I'm proud to be associated with you both.
