Battle Box 2 is up on Vinyl Factory's site. And they're re-pressing #1 with full artwork. A little pissed about that, but oh well. Not gonna buy it again.

Likewise. Having spent £10 already on a white label it's going to be hard - make that impossible - to justify spending £50 on two new 12s. My collection is starting to have holes in it ever since I had to say STOP when the Burial 12" was released.

Product Details:
Created by Massive Attack’s 3D aka Robert Del Naja, Battle Box fuses music, art and discourse across live events, exhibitions and exclusive vinyl releases.

Battle Box 002 - 3D on Jupiter features two remixes by Robert Del Naja of Congolose musician Jupiter Bokonjdi - heavy, sinewy electronic tracks with an apocalyptic edge whose origins rest with 3D's African Express adventure.

Listen to the track and watch the video

Says 3D: "In 2007 I went to the Congo with Africa Express. I was lucky to hang out and listen to some pretty amazing musicians, Jupiter among them.

"This track is built with an unknown modular synth from Munich, a Moog and a Vermona drum machine, with help from Euan Dickinson and Tim Goldsworthy. And mixes by Bruno Ellingham. I wanted to mirror the energy and message in the song without complicating it. The b-side is a more relaxed and melodic using a Prophet 5 and a jupiter 8.

It is the second release on the Battle Box label, which is made and distributed through The Vinyl Factory. Paul Insect has designed the covers and label art. Everything is screenprinted and limited in number."

* Limited edition of 300 copies worldwide
* 180-gram black vinyl w/2 tracks
* Exclusive screen printed sleeve artwork by Paul Insect
* Each copy individually hand numbered

Tracklisting
A. 3D on Jupiter - Main Mix
B. 3D on Jupiter - Alternative Mix

Released 17 October 2013; in stock now

Really. Well I guess thats about as much interaction one can expect on the FB page.

My problem with these VF editions is not so much the price but how limited they are. It was bad enough when they were producing 1000 copies. Now we're down to 300.
