Context – Off With Their Heads (prod. Slof Man and Elkat) on BBC Radio 1

Its been an unhappy break from Radio 1 for me, since Mr Huw Stephens introduced me to the world with my first ever track in 2008 (‘The Harrier’), and he went on to play the tracks ‘Frantic’ and ‘As the Sun Goes Down’. But last night I was back in his playlist with ‘Off With Their Heads’; so big up Huw, and to BBC Norfolk for the recommendation!

Check out an edited radio rip below. Onwards and upwards!

*BRAND NEW* Context feat. Slof Man – Listening to Burial – Radio Rip: Premiere by Ace and Vis on BBC Radio 1Xtra

So today, sitting in for Westwood on BBC 1Xta, Ace and Vis exclusively premiered my BRAND NEW single, the follow up to ‘Off With Their Heads’. The track is called ‘Listening to Burial’ and again, has been produced by the wizard and all round top geezer Slof Man. The track is set for a May release date.

The story behind the track:

The mysterious, Mercury Prize nominated producer Burial once described his music in an interview with The Guardian as being:

“about when you come back from being out somewhere; in a minicab or a night bus, or with someone, or walking home across London late at night, dreamlike”

This single, the follow up to the MTV playlisted ‘Off With Their Heads featuring Vertex of Marvell, tells this story of Burial’s. It is the anthem to the walk home after a rave; the dreamlike, ambient city walk as the sun comes up. This is my tale of every weekend, and my tribute to one of the most emotive producers in music.

Myspace Featured Artists: Context, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Kings of Leon
