I was honoured to be asked to knock up a mix by the mighty Opal Tapes, and since I've been all melancholy country and soul and whatnot lately, I got deeply into making something deep and dirty and bassy and abrasive. And here's the result. There's a lot of looking back fondly to the glory days of breakcore and Brixton and 414 and Ambush Records in here too.

And thanks to John Convery for the brilliant photo he let me use for the artwork
