Dig Deep - Gettin Ready For't Beat-Herder with Mr Scruff 280612

So the 2012 beat-herder festival is almost upon us and it's nearly time for 3 more days of beats and barminess in the heart of Lancashire.

That means it's time for our annual 'Gettin Ready For't Beat-Herder' Dig Deep show and in the mini-mix this Thursday we have a full hour of Mr Scruff recorded live in the Toil Trees at the Beat-Herder Festival in 2011.

Following the shows earlier in the year here and here, this week's mix is taken from around the 2nd to last hour of his fantastic 5 hour set.
