Massive Attack vs Burial - Paradise Circus [radio rip]

Titans of British dub smackdown, with echo-ey results.

Massive Attack and Burial have, as we reported previously (look below under related articles), produced a two song 12” for Vinyl Factory which costs £25 that has already sold out. The B-side, Paradise Circus, is below. It made Mary Anne Hobbs sound even more out-of-breath than normal when she played it last night, and with due cause – though it lacks the much under-spoken about punch or swing of Burial’s best work, it is lovely.
