What a combination!
Back in June last year, UNKLE’s James Lavelle saw Radkey play their awesome debut London show at The Camden Barfly and walked home with a smile on his face. It led to the band being picked as part of the Meltdown Festival that he is curating scheduled for 13th-22nd June and the fruition of UNKLE’s first reconstruction in 4 years.
“Having not done an UNKLE remix for some time, Radkey’s ‘Romance Dawn’ seemed like the perfect track to come back with,” explains Lavelle.”This band have endless energy and excitement and you can’t buy that shit!”The three Radkey brothers from Missouri are delighted to hear one of their tracks recontructed following a sold out 100 Club show that was recorded for a limited run of cassettes for this year’s Record Store Day:
“The remix actually turned out to be something that we totally weren’t expecting to hear. It sounds kinda like the music that would be playing in a hardcore drug scene in a movie. We love it. Being a part of the whole festival season this year is going to be pretty cool and Meltdown seems like a great one to be a part of.”
Take a listen to the blinding remix below.
