sheffield: sex city
[Owen went to Sheffield to do something important recently. I tagged along. Sheffield is a marvellous city, but is intent on destroying all its good bits, especially Park Hill. We did something on Castle Market as well, but that’s going to be on another site shortly]

I mised this at the time… FACT bigging up the Ice Rink remix. You can hear this on the myspace and on the mix for Crazy Legs club. I am playing a Crazy Legs soon, on the 31st, so you can hear it on a big system then.
WILEY: ‘ICE RINK’ (RIKO VOCAL – GRIEVOUS ANGEL REMIX)
“Woofah magazine co-editor and the man behind one of last year’s most underrated albums, Belief is the Enemy, has been foraging into UK Funky productions lately, and they’re fantastic. If you’ve heard Kode 9’s recent sets you’ll have heard GA’s edit of ‘Loser’, which is coming out soon on a white label under an alias, but his remixes of Wiley’s classic ‘Ice Rink’ step things up even further. The instrumental is good, but it’s all about the Riko version, which keeps the original’s alien squelches and clashes, mutates the best vocal from the original 12″s, and pretty much pisses all over the entire Major Lazer album.”
FACT Magazine have a good review of Lady Saw / Move Down Low up here.
“It’s no secret that the man behind both the edits on this 12″ is Sheffield-based dubstep producer/Woofah magazine co-editor/general blogger dun’ good Grievous Angel, and they’ve been a pivotal point of Kode 9’s sets for a while; usually played either side of his own ‘Black Sun’. The familiarity of both tracks might have detracted from their impact since that night at Beyond, and I’m not sure either are as great as Grievous’ UK funky edit of Wiley’s ‘Ice Rink’, but still – if ever there’s a track you’ll ignore when it finally comes out, then hear it a year down the line and realise how stupid you were and end up shelling half a week’s rent on discogs then it’s this one.”
