After a sporadic (at best!) release schedule since label owner Kevin McKay set up Breastfed (to sign Mylo) and set up Heartbeats (to sign Grum), the Glasgow Underground label is back in business for 2011. First up is “Somebody’s Property”, the spooky dub disco classic from Mash. Originally released on vinyl only in 2006 this wonky DFA-style cut used samples of children singing, “We don’t want to become somebody’s property. We don’t want to give up on our liberty. No legs, no eyes, so I walk just because we are told.” over Mash’s distorted beats and bumpy live bass. It was a big hit with influential Dutch DJ i-F and featured on his much-loved “I-F – Mixed up in Dublin (07/10/2006)”. The remixes for 2011 include reworkings from Turbo Recordings artist Sei A (deep, kick- heavy, hypnotic), Mash (slow-motion disco), Kevin McKay (synthed-up house), Rob Etherson (jacking) and The Revenge cohort OOFT (tripped-out bass).
