Dub Pistols RE-HASH – new remix album out now.

Hot of the heels of their critically acclaimed forth album ‘Rum & Coke’, Dub Pistols and friends return for ‘Re-Hash’. A thrilling and eclectic release, in which some of the most intriguing producers today remix some classic Pistols tracks from their last three releases re-Hash is a timely reminder of the consistency and quality of the Dub Pistols catalogue. However its diverse roster of high profile producers ensures that each reworking will provide a fresh coat of paint to old crowd favourites. It’s a perfect mix of nostalgia and discovery which will serve to keep fans and critics pleased until their fifth album is released later this year on Sunday Best.

Taking its cue from the Dub Pistols global sound, the album is a diverse selection of genres ranging from dubstep, new wave to house. Highlights include ex Leftfield man Paul Daley remixing the iconic ‘6 Million Ways To Live’, by changing its focus from an afternoon jam into a hypnotic after hours groove. Robotic vocals with dark and heavy new-wave undertones transform the track into an almost sinister and engaging record.

Meanwhile ‘Speakers and Tweeters’, the title track from their critically acclaimed album of the same name is given a drastic transformation by Brighton duo 2 Bit Thugs. Multi-layered and chaotic, it uses elements of ‘progressive kuduro’ (an engaging sound populated by the likes of Buraka Som Sistema) to create a highly diverse, vivacious and unforgettable Glitch hop remix that will get even the most hesitant movers dancing in a frenzy.

Other remixers on the project include Matthew ‘Bushwacka’ B, one half of the acclaimed Layo & Bushwacka duo, and Wrong Tom, who has just released an album of dubwise reworkings of Roots Manuva’s back catalogue, as well as underground DJ/producer hotshots such as Ben & Lex and Kouncil House.

In support of this fantastic release, Dub Pistols will embark on a number of UK & European shows and festivals including appearances at Glastonbury and Bestival this year.
