Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja, aka 3D, drops two remixes of ‘The Right Stuff’ on his Battle Box label.

Originally released on Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ album Chasing Yesterday earlier this year, ‘The Right Stuff’ has been pulled apart and reassembled by Massive Attack’s 3D and Euan Dickinson for two dark reworks of cinematic intensity.

In 3D’s words, “it was a good opportunity to take a great song, slow it right down, remove the guitars and then scratch the clarinet backwards.”

Speaking of the collaboration, Gallagher also hinted that it’s been a long time coming: “I remember being at The Brits in 1995 and D offering to do a Massive Attack re-mix of ‘Cast No Shadow’. The idea was never followed through and it’s something I’ve regretted ever since. It’s nice to finally scratch the itch somewhat.”

Battle Box 004: High Flying Birds In 3D is pressed to 12″ vinyl with artwork by Paul Insect and is limited to 500 copies. You can pre-order a copy from The Vinyl Factory ahead of its release on July 31.

Gallagher has enlisted a host of British club royalty on remix duty lately, with Andrew Weatherall and Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve providing suitably psychedelic takes on his sturdy rock.
