Ty feat. Roots Manuva – Do You Want More (refix)

It’s hard to believe that Big Dada is only 10 years old.

Out of all the record labels that come and go in this world, I think that Big Dada is one of the few that resonate the most with me. When I was living in London, someone slipped me a copy of Manuva’s Brand New Second Hand and I was hooked ever since. Then came Ty, Wiley, TTC, and later the US fire of Diplo, who got his first major break from the London-based label, and Spank Rock, who released my number two favorite album of 2006.

After 10 years, a retrospective was not only necessary, but almost required. Big Dada’s impact on the underground music scene is so potent that in addition to the 33 tracks on 2 CD’s there is a DVD filled with a documentary filled with interviews of every Big Dada artist as well as appearances from such names as Saul Williams and Boards of Canada. In addition there will be a full megamix of every Big Dada video and promo ever made.

Well Deep: 10 Years Of Big Dada Recordings drops in the UK on October. Of course, there is no US release date set, so look for it on import or on Ebay soon. Tracklisting after the jump. And please check out the MP3 of Ty and Roots Manuva’s “Do You Want More” refix. That beat is classic!
