With Remixtasy, Eccodek flips the script on its signature sound, turning a pack of musical alchemists loose on the group's forward thinking blend of dub, funk, tribalism and cinematic electronica. This tastemaker's list of remixers and producers re-imagine tracks from the Canadian global fusion band's first 3 releases: More Africa in Us, Voices Have Eyes and the Juno-nominated Shivaboom.
Remixtasy is a sprawling, 14-track opus moving from dub, funk, techno, reggae, lo-fi electro to Middle-Eastern, Afrobeat, Rockers, Asian Massive and beyond.
Trailblazers like Transglobal Underground, Six Degrees' Jef Stott, Dubmatix, EarthRise SoundSystem, Real World's Syriana and Adham Shaikh rub shoulders with fresh sounds from Sub Swara's Sharmaji, Four80East, Delhi 2 Dublin's Tarun Nayar and Rise Ashen.
Eccodek mainman Andrew McPherson even works up 2 radical redubs from the first album, More Africa in Us - an Afrobeat throwdown and a sensuous steppers dub odyssey.
