About this item
XL Recordings are very happy to announce the release of ‘The Lost Tape’. Having already made history by single-handedly bringing back UK garage, the stars of BBC’s BAFTA winning comedy ‘People Just Do Nothing’, Kurupt FM, have decided to do it again with the greatest mix ever recorded - according to them. The legendary set was broadcast live in 2011 on Kurupt FM 108.9 and was recorded onto cassette tape by an anonymous listener. Once lost in a backpack in deepest Brentford, the lost tape has now been uncovered, remixed and mastered for the very first time.
‘The Lost Tape’ is a journey across an entire CD, documenting the seminal tracks which have shaped club culture from Hammersmith Boulevard to the Champagne Steam Rooms.
Featuring MCs DJ Beats and MC Grindah and mixed live by Steves, it’s over an hour of UK Garage, Grime and 100% Kurupt originals, including ‘Suttin’ Like That’.
With a feature documentary from legendary filmmaker Ewen Spencer on the way, who has previously made documentaries about The Streets and Massive Attack as well as his scene-defining piece ‘Brandy & Coke’, Ewen’s film will cement Kurupt FM even further in to UK music history.
‘The Lost Tape’ is the culmination of a big 18 months that’s seen Kurupt FM named GQ Men Of The Year, collaborate with Ed Sheeran for Comic Relief, sell out Brixton Academy, two nights at London’s Roundhouse and festival slots from Reading and Leeds to Lovebox.
