Get Cape single, tour

Gigs & Festivals

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly has a whole stack of gigs booked in for the summer and early Autumn, all of which will be preceded by the release of a new single called ‘Collapsing Cities’, which is a collaboration with drum & bass type Shy FX.

On the single, Cape man Sam Duckworth tells CMU: “I’ve been working on and off with Shy FX for about two years and if I’m going to do a track like this – kind of big beat, slightly slower than jungle but quite up-tempo – then he should be the guy to do it with. It’s about two visions of what people think poverty is. If all the buildings fell down we’d all be alright but what would be the ethos we should take – that of community or that of greed?”
