Slice Of Spice: SSR-015 ft. Oxygen

Oxygen released the 7" vinyl of "Gone Diggin" mid 2010. The hype around that blazin track was hugh and it's still. So it's obviously a good idea to return with a massive remix on 10" vinyl. 

Oxygen ft. Gensu Dean - Gone Diggin' (Diggin' By Law) 10" !!! The "Diggin' By Law" vinyl project is dedicated to Big City Records in NYC which is closing it's doors for the last time on today. 

Slice Of Spice has teamed up with Ox & Gensu to release "Gone Diggin'" in it's original version, a brand new remix and BOTH instrumentals. All mixed by legendary engineer Eddie Sancho, mastered by K-Def. Artwork design by the one and only Mr. Krum. Plus expect some bonus tracks by DJ Format and more.

The official release date for the vinyl is the 3rd of November. Pre-orders for the special edition version and bonus vinyl will start in October



My special thanks goes out to SOS, Ox, Format, Gensu and Mr. Krum. All copyrights reserved, posted for promotion use only.
