- Daddy G has revealed that the group intend to enlist the Hyperdub producer to rework a full album of their material.
Massive Attack are planning a full-length remix project with Burial.
Speaking to Clash Magazine in an interview earlier this month, original Massive Attack member Daddy G remarked, "I don't know if I should really say this," before revealing that, "the plan is... you know that Mad Professor record that we did? (1995's 'No Protection'). Essentially trying to get that together, where Burial essentially remixes quite a lot of the new tracks. Brings out a different version of quite a lot of the tracks that we've done."
Daddy G has been known to be a fan of the genre ever since he had a hand in organising the Dubstep Chronicles event as part of the group's Meltdown Festival curatorship in 2008. Judging from this recent interview, however, it seems incredibly clear that Burial has a special place in his heart. "We've been listening to a lot of the stuff that he does and he's just amazing. The way he does his layers, his drums and stuff like that. The dubstep thing is amazing, there's a lot of really good people there - Kode9 is great as well. These kids are just amazing and we want to be part of that."
The plan may be for Massive Attack to release their fifth non-soundtrack full-length in February, but Burial fans may be waiting a very long time for the remix project to hit the shops, as Clash are stating that there is "no timescale" for the release.
