LV were the first act to release on Hyperdub outside the trio of Kode9, Burial and The Bug, making their label debut with 2007’s ‘Globetrotting’, a collaboration with veteran reggae singer Errol Bellot. The years since have seen a steady stream of LV releases on Hyperdub, Hemlock, 2nd Drop and Keysound, with the London-based group content to stay casually in the shadows; the majority not knowing the members’ identity or background.

2nd Drop Records is proud to present its tenth release!
B. Pushing - Falty DL Remix
Vinyl> out mid June 2010
Digital> out late June 2010
An underground legend with releases on MJ Cole's personal label, Profile, Reading lad Duncan Powell offers a classic slice of, as Jackmaster (Wireblock/ Numbers) described it, "James Bond Step". A big string laden anthem, Pushing was originally given away as part of a free EP on Duncan's blog. But much like Ramadanman's Good Feelin record which was also saved from the same fate, we believed that it was too good to be a freebie and pressed it up onto vinyl.
A goldmine of musical elements, Pushing was ripe for the remix treatment and as Falty DL was a big fan of the original, and as we were a big fan of him, set him to work stripping back the cacophony of melody transforming Pushing into a dark, broken 2-step swinger with flashes of vocals and strings, to awesome effect.
Played and supported by the likes of Modeselektor, Peveralist, Diplo, Simbad, Desto, Sinden, Mary Anne Hobbs among others.
The guest illustrator on this release is Audrey Rogers, a fine artist/ illustrator with a visual style which quickly resonated with the 2nd Drop guys and fitted nicely with the 12" format. Her excellent work can be found here
