DESCRIPTION

THIS VERSION IS THE SAME AS THE ORIGINAL VERSION BUT WITH A LIMITED EDITION INSERT

At long last this most sought after of Beedle edits is seeing the light of day on special edition vinyl.

After hearing 'New York Is Killing Me' on the excellent I'm New Here album, completely blown away by the track, Ashley decided to create an edit/rework with his musical partner Darren Morris.

Ashley has been a long time Gil Scott-Heron fan so he embarked on getting a legal release for this track on Modern Artifacts, the track perfectly fitting the labels mould.  In summer of 2012, XL Recordings and Gil Scott-Heron's estate very kindly granted a release. This edit/rework is a fitting tribute to the late Scott-Heron. Ashley's rework amps up and stretches out the underlying voodoo groove with drones and trippy sounds to create a menacing sound scape that is unique and a dance floor bomb.  It has already been played out extensively on dubplate during the last year with rapturous acclaim across the board, dancers and djs alike.

Lord have mercy, have mercy on me!
