Dirty Dike 'Acrylic Snail' LIMITED EDITION 2 x 12" VINYL + 16 PAGE BOOK
Once Upon A Time,
In a nasty rave,
There was a kid called Dike.
It was 1998,
And you weren't there,
But he was, with all his friends.
We are delighted to reveal the double vinyl repress of Dirty Dike's 2018 smash hit record 'Acrylic Snail', reinvented in a 'CRUSHED SNAIL SHELL' Marble Vinyl designed by the man himself.
‘Acrylic Snail’ is the fifth album from Dirty Dike. Following a three-year hiatus since his last solo outing ‘Sucking On Prawns In The Moonlight’ and after a ream of production work for the likes of Rag ’n’ Bone Man, Ocean Wisdom, Lee Scott (the list goes on) during that time, Acrylic Snail spans 14-tracks and is up there with his most personal releases to date. It is a body of work that shines a full-beam-floodlight on his formative years, but moreover, the dreamlike transition between then and now.
In short, ‘Acrylic Snail’ pays homage to the things Dike saw in the very farthest reaches of night that made him who he is today.
Featuring a roster of guests vocalists (Rag ’n’ Bone Man, Jam Baxter, Lee Scott, Dabbla, Leaf Dog, Eva Lazarus, J Man, Ronnie Bosh, Inja, Killa P, Foreign Beggars) and production from a team of music makers (including Dike himself) ‘Acrylic Snail’ is an AAA invitation to Dirty Dike’s playground and further cements his hard-earned status as one of UKHH's greatest torchbearers.
Album comes with a digital download upon fulfilment of your order AND an epic 16-page mixed media book inspired by photographs taken by Dirty Dike himself while on his well-documented adventures.
