Speedy Wunderground Toasts Its 10th Birthday With London Event, Plus Box Set

A decade of fine music...

Speedy Wunderground will toast its 10th birthday with some activity later this year.

The label was founded a decade ago, based around producer Dan Carey, working alongside Alexis Smith and Pierre Hall. A clear example of investing back into music on a community basis, the imprint’s long-running singles series now boasts some incredible alumni.

Speedy Wunderground have released music from Squid, black midi, Black Country, New Road, Loyle Carner, Kae Tempest and The Lounge Society (amongst others), helping to drive a fresh era of underground activity in London and beyond. Turning 10 with nary a wrinkle in sight, the label will host a special seven hour party on September 16th at London’s Village Underground.

Expect all manner of surprises, with guests and Speedy Wunderground pals past and present uniting for the one-off birthday party.

Alongside this, Speedy Wunderground have detailed a new seven inch box set. The ultra-limited set – only 250 copies will be made – boasts 10 discs and 20 tracks of the original Savage Gary dub remixes from their singles series.

Savage Gary is of course Dan Carey, who was let loose with an echo chamber on material from black midi, deep tan, Natasha Khan, and more.
