Sector 7 Sounds heads Boofy and Lemzly Dale are key players in the 140bpm microcosm of Bristol. Boofy is a bonafide Bandulu member alongside Kahn, Neek and Hi5ghost, while Lemzly Dale’s Holy I$$h remix was laid to wax on Bandulu Records in 2017.
They launched Sector 7 Sounds together in 2013 with their Catch a Body / Banshee 12”, putting out a handful of very well received releases in the years following; though things really hotted up on the DIY grime label last year, with EP releases from Drone and Lemzly Dale’s excellent Catty EP.

8. Do you have a party trick?

9. Tell us something people don’t generally know about you…
L: I’ve got this thing called Brown’s syndrome, which means I can only look up properly with one eye. My left eye just veers off halfway.
10. What are you doing tomorrow?
B: Gym and then bleaching the kitchen floors. Life’s a bit mental.
