Since Pitch Black’s last album in 2007, Paddy has been very busy: releasing a solo album, ‘Karekare: Te Reo o te Whenua’; composing for contemporary dance groups Atamira, Mau and Black Grace; beta-testing, and lecturing about, Ableton Live; founding Nga Tae with Richard Nunns, Horomona Horo and Waimihi Hotere; plus co-writing and producing the latest album by, and touring the world with, Moana & The Tribe.
As Pitch Black ready themselves for their first album in 9 years, Paddy has revisited four tracks each from Nga Tae’s ‘Nga Tae’ and Moana's ‘Rima’ album to create eight stonking dub remixes, full of mana and bass.
With vocals almost exclusively in Te Reo Maori, and incorporating traditional Maori instruments played by some of the worlds most respected players, Paddy Free ‘In Dub’ is a copacetic fusion of ancient tradition and contemporary dub production.
