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.
We’ll be posting an in-depth interview with LV in the near future, but first here’s their FACT mix, a multi-layered meltdown of kwaito, grime, funky and more. There’s no tracklist, and as is the nature of the mix, it’s not always obvious where tracks start and finish, but spotters should quickly spot both sides of LV’s ‘Boomslang’ single and recognisable cuts by Scratcha DVA, T. Williams, Cooly G and more.
