Boxed In And Formation Join Forces For Speedy Wunderground Single “Running Out”

March 3, 2016 BY Nettwerk

Producer Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label releases its 16th single, ‘Running Out’ by Boxed In Feat. Formation on 22nd April 2016.

The single, available as a limited edition 7”, and featuring a ‘dub version’ as its B-side, can be heard here:


Boxed in – aka Oli Bayston has been part of the Speedy family for a long time.  Longtime friends with all members of the label – Carey produced his first record, is currently working on his next and the pair previously collaborated on the Scotti Brains Speedy release. As well as a friendship , the connection extends to a professional capacity – Bayston having assisted Dan on records such as TOY and Mystery Jets – so it was only a matter of time until a Speedy release was on the cards.

Of the session Oli says, “It was a real pleasure venturing into the world of Speedy Wunderground. We’ve been looking forward to it for very long time. It went by in a flash and we loved every minute of it.”

The result, a skittering Arthur Russell indebted jam was formed in the spontaneous tradition of the label. Written in twenty minutes and recorded in a couple of hours – the collaborators, local boys, Formation, who Dan first encountered at a South London  chess club were given 30 mins notice before confirming their involvement and making their way down to the studio.

Talking about Formation’s involvement Dan says, “I was trying to think of how to surprise Oli on the day of the speedy session – ‘Young Ones’ (by Formation)  came on the radio , which I had mixed last year , and I’d  always liked Matt and Will and wanted to work with them again. They only live round the corner so I called them and they were round within the hour.”

It was worth the wait.

Speedy Wunderground release their second compilation, ‘Speedy Wunderground – Year 2’ on 17th June 2016 – featuring Natalie Bang Bang, Kate Tempest, Loyle Carner, Telegram, Teleman, FEWS, Peluché, BOSS,  Mr Dan & Guilty Simpson.
