FINALLY: Massive Attack vs Burial - "Paradise Circus"
Arguably the best track from Massive Attack's excellent Heligoland remixed by arguably the best artist in the last 5 years, Burial. After posting "Four Walls" a couple weeks back I was eagerly awaiting this track's release... and now it is here and even better than I had imagined...
MASSIVE ATTACK VS BURIAL
* Iconic Acts Massive Attack & Burial Release New 2 Track 12”
* 180g Vinyl Housed In Hand Numbered, Screen Printed Sleeve Designed By Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja
The subject of prolonged rumour and intense speculation, Inhale Gold and The Vinyl Factory are proud to present Massive Attack’s long awaited collaboration with Burial, 4 Walls / Paradise Circus.
Selling out within hours of going on sale 4 Walls / Paradise Circus was pressed on heavyweight 180g 12” vinyl, housed in a stunning hand numbered, gold glitter screen-printed sleeve designed by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja (3D), crafted by The Vinyl Factory, and is already a highly coveted collectors item.
As you’d expect from these two acts these are no ordinary remixes and Burial has completely rebuilt both tracks in his own unique style providing a masterclass in production. At around 12 minutes each both tracks have been given the time and space to evolve and develop going way beyond the scope of normal remixes, with the end result two highly original, in every sense of the word, pieces of music.
