Salmonella Dub - Remixes and Radio Cuts:
An Aotearoa Anthology of 200 Years Escapism from Industrial Revolution


Salmonella Dub announces the release of their Remixes and Radio Cuts CD/DVD compilation.

The band reversed the migration trends of their colonial whakapapa in 2005 when they toured the UK and Ireland for the third time to release their UK-exclusive double CD/DVD, cheekily entitled Remixes and Radio Cuts: An Aotearoa Anthology of 200 Years Escapism From Industrial Revolution.

Remixes and Radio Cuts is now available in Aotearoa via the band’s own Dub Conspiracy label/production house which also released last year’s Dub Conspiracy and Kaikoura Roots Festival 05 compilations.

This release features One Drop North, a documentary of their 2004 sell-out tour of Europe (17 shows across eight countries in 21 days!), which screened here last year on TV1; six of their most recent video clips, including Nu Steppa, Slide, Ez On, Dancehall Girl, Longtime and a video remix of Nu Steppa; plus a photo slide show of spectacular South Island landscapes.

The 14-track CD compilation is a combination of previously released remixes and radio edits, selected from across the band’s full catalogue. Remixers include the likes of Adrian Sherwood, Mad Professor, David Harrow, Concord Dawn, Mu, Groove Corporation and the Sativa Records crew.

The track-list was selected to invoke the metaphoric journey of the bands’ colonial whakapapa from industrial Britain through to modern Aotearoa.

The story begins with Conspiracy Dub, Drifting and Push On Thru, expressing the first wave of colonial desire to escape from the conspiracy of the upper classes industrial revolution.

The second chapter starts with Savage, an expression of the hardship of survival in Aotearoa in the 1840s, quickly flowing into the love for a new life and land with For The Love Of It, Tui Dub and Outdoor Stylez.

The third chapter moves into the contemporary world. Dreadzone remixes Wytaliba, a track originally featuring samples recorded during a police search, (“we got no warrant”), while Ez On is reworked by Concord Dawn. Th Bromley East Roller illustrates Tiki Taane’s experiences growing up in the industrial suburb of Bromley in parochial 1980s Christchurch. The Ipswich-based Sativa Records crew reworks Longtime.

The final chapter in this selection features the track Platetectonics “lets mash up material world...he who seeks only vanity with no love for humanity will fade away” remixed by Birmingham’s Groove Corp. Mercy “where’s the love” is remixed by Mu from Fat Freddy’s Drop, and lastly Orbital from the band’s1994 debut album completes the cycle.

Remixes and Radio Cuts is on sale Monday April 3.
