Review: A decade on from the release of 'Blackbird', the third studio album by beloved New Zealand combo Fat Freddy's Drop, the album returns in freshly remixed form. It's a naturally celebratory affair that touches on most of their stylistic influences and more, from reggae/soul/hip-hop fusion (the fine Kings rub of 'Blackbird', Christophe El Torento and Lucky Lance reworking 'Clean The House'), sub-heavy house warmth (Nightmares on Wax's club-ready take on 'Russia'), dub disco (Kiwi deep house star Philippa tweaking 'Bones'), soaring house-not-house (Jazzanova's emotion-rich interpretation of 'Soldier'), digi-dub (Marcus Worgull's version of 'Blackbird'), wobbly jump-up D&B (Freestykes and Dub Pistols re-imagining 'Bones') and bowel-bothering bass music (Syrup D's fantastic mix of 'Silver & Gold').

Review: New Zealand dub masters Fat Freddy's Drop return with more seamless original material. Sound the horns! Some five years in the making a fresh set of coastal, cosmic and psychedelic vibes with classic strains of lovers dub and jazz, or make that Italo, synth and disco music. Not least the pumping closing statement that ends the album in the synth heavy "Trickledown", a track that's big on warehouse techno and deep house touched up by a bit of Ska. A stand out club track on the album in stark in contrast with the slight of pop, funk and folk added to "Special Edition" and "Kamo Kamo". Nevertheless "Six Eight Instrumental" does a good job at keeping us in space.

Kamo Kamo
Kamo Kamo - (5:22) 70 BPM
Review: Kiwi festival faves Fat Freddy's Drop trail their soon-come fifth studio album ('Special Edition Part 1', out 15 November) with this single-track teaser. 'Kamo Kamo' finds the band in straight-up reggae mode, opening with plinky-plonky clavinet chords before dropping down into a midtempo groove centred around a lolloping bassline and topped with Dallas Tamaira's instantly recognisable soulful vocal, not to mention some fine flourishes from the horn section. Production-wise there are a few echo-y, dubby moments here and there, while things take an almost Middle Eastern twist in the closing 30 seconds or so. All told, this should whet fans' appetites nicely.

Mother Mother (Theo Parrish Translation)
Mother Mother (Theo Parrish Translation) - (10:36) 106 BPM Hot
Mother Mother (Theo Parrish Translation instrumental) - (10:36) 106 BPM
Review: By now, it should be obvious that second-guessing what Theo Parrish will do with a remix is nigh on impossible. You could get off-kilter deep house, slo-mo weirdness or something altogether more intriguing. These remixes of antipodean festival favourites Fat Freddy's Drop pleasingly fall into the latter category. Over 10 mesmerizing minutes, the New Zealand outfit's bubbly original gets turned into a loose, undulating trip into space jazz territory - all pitched-down vocals (on the main mix, at least), fuzzy analogue keys, hissing percussion and dubbed-out blasts of discordant horns. It's kind of like a smacked-out version of the Parrish-produced Andrew Ashong single, "Flowers", sprinkled with space dust. There's no finer praise than that.

Review: This New Zealand seven piece first delivered this long player back in June amidst a lot of positive hype and a big Brixton Academy show. Continuing to ride on all those good times vibes, the self-proclaimed 'heavyweight soul providers' have now extended the tracklisting, adding a further eight new ditties for our listening pleasure. This third album saw them push their sound deeper into the realms of Afrocentric and dubby electronica, and now also includes the retro electro-funk of "Barney Miller", the slick lounge grooves of "Tropo" and the spaced out soul of "So You Wanna".

Review: With a current tour including a date at London's Brixton Academy, it's safe to say that this New Zealand seven piece are big news. This could have something to do with the universal good times vibes of their output. Here, the self-proclaimed 'heavyweight soul providers' are back with album number three and it sees them delve pushing their sound deeper into the realms of Afrocentric, dubby electronica. Highlights include the brassy, sunny ska of the title track, "Blackbird", the electro-funk of "Silver & Gold" and the pulsating digital disco of "Never Moving".
