New Zealand's Pitch Black has always been more than a dance act, but on their latest album Remixes and Rarities they demonstrate the full reach of the musical territory they love to explore. Remixes and Rarities is a package of rare tracks and lovingly crafted remixes of other artists' music, chosen by Paddy Free and Mike Hodgson to represent their fifteen year reign as Aotearoa's favourite electronica act. Known globally for their stomping live sets, Remixes and Rarities showcases Pitch Black's mellower side. Beginning with a dancefloor friendly, but respectful reworking of the Richard Nunns and Hirini Melbourne original, 'Te Po' and ending with an equally haunting version of Tiki's 'Past Present Future', Remixes and Rarities is an album that represents the past, present and future of the Pitch Black partnership. Included in the remixes are tracks by fellow Aotearoa/NZ dub trailblazers International Observer and Salmonella Dub, who appear alongside independent music producer Tom Cosm and reggae legends Katchafire. Also fed through the PB warping machine are tracks from further a field: 'Mirror Beach' by Mirror System (the ambient project of Britain's System 7); and 'A New Day', a remix of a Sri Lankan track that Pitch Black remixed for the Laya Project, a collaboration of regional folk musicians affected by the 2004 tsunami.
