PITCH BLACK ‘It’s The Future Knocking’
The release of the fourth single “It’s The Future Knocking” from Pitch Black’s latest album Filtered Senses comes just before they play their final shows in New Zealand.
After a slew of summer festivals that saw the electronic duo return home to tour their 5th studio album Filtered Senses, the pair play their final NZ show at Sundaise Festival on March 10th before returning to the UK.
The original version of “It’s The Future Knocking” is a tasty slice of dubwise electronica, and as usual for the duo, they have pulled in a bevvy of remixers to add breadth and depth to their release. In this case, it’s a veritable dubgasm as not one, but three, dub producers step up to rinse the bottom end.
First up is Anglo export slash Kiwi resident International Observer, who brings his light playful touch to the original, while building on top of a deep groove.
Following him is UK dub royalty in the form of Alpha Steppa. The son and nephew of scene stalwarts Alpha and Omega, his UK steppers style mix wobbles you firmly onto the dancefloor.
Finally remix dons Deep Fried Dub add fire to the beats and finish up the EP in an old school drum and bass style.
