SPEEDY WUNDERGROUND CELEBRATE 10TH ANNIVERSARY

LIMITED EDITION BOXSET “THE DUBS – VOL. 1” SET FOR AUGUST 4TH

ANNOUNCE 10TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY FOR 16TH SEPTEMBER AT VILLAGE UNDERGROUND

Speedy Wunderground, the revered London-based indie label headed up by producer Dan Carey alongside Alexis Smith and Pierre Hall, reaches 10 years old in 2023. The fast-moving, ever-evolving creative force that is Speedy has seen numerous professional accolades and personal triumphs over that time, always acting on intuition and their own terms.

Most recently, the label picked up “Best Small Label” at the AIM Awards and “UK Producer of The Year” at the Music Producer Guild Awards for Carey. As well as significant interest building in recent signings Heartworms and O., they have released debut singles and some of the earliest material from a wide range of now well-established acts including Squid, black midi, Black Country, New Road, Loyle Carner, Kae Tempest and The Lounge Society, garnered critical praise for Carey across a range of successful production work (Wet Leg, Fontaines D.C., slowthai) and built acclaim for the label itself, with The Quietus effusing:

The label has become genuinely prestigious. It is not ridiculous to wonder whether one day it will be looked back upon with the same reverence as labels like Factory, Sarah, Zoo or Creation receive today.”

To celebrate the landmark ten years, they’re throwing a party at London’s
iconic Village Underground on Saturday 16th September. Carey and team will curate a mammoth 7-hour celebration and, in typical Speedy style, no official line up will be announced until closer to the event – but it promises to feature a surefire array of SW alumni ‘past, present and future.’ 

Based on the wide range of era-defining artists they’ve worked with over the last decade and the significant influence they’ve had/are having on the current independent musical landscape – anything could happen, and probably will. Expect the unexpected.

For “The Dubs – Vol.1”, out August 4th, Carey – who first learned the ropes in studios by working alongside pioneering dub producer/selector Nick Mannaseh and later went on to work with Lee Scratch Perry – has picked some of his favourites from across the decade, including reworkings of tracks by:

Archie Bronson Outfit, Toy, Natasha Khan, Scottibrains, JUCE!, Kae Tempest, Loyle Carner, Telegram, Teleman, Peluché, Melt Yourself Down, DEWEY, black midi, Black Country, New Road, All We Are, Alex Kapranos, Tiña, Pynch, PVA, Brodka, moa moa, deep tan and Honeyglaze.

The boxset features one completely new dub remix from Carey, his take on Honeyglaze’s “Burglar”, named “Savage Gary’s Robber Dub Dub Remix”.

Hypnotic and essential, this a brief look into what is a collectors must have.
