For more than 17 years, Salmonella Dub out of New Zealand has cut a path so distinctive and thrilling, none would dare try to take them on their own ground. Salmonella Dub created a unique style melding dub, futuristic rock, jazzy horns, drum'n'bass step, electronica and reggae. Their music exists within its own world, and Kiwi and international remixers lined up to enjoy their alchemy. Formed in 1992 by guitarist Andrew Penman, drummer David Deakens, and bassist Mark Tyler, their classic line-up settled with arrival of vocalist Tiki Taane and multi-instrumentalist Conan Wilcox, and they launched their golden era with the platinum-selling album Killervision in 1999. Inside the Dub Plates two years later went double-platinum; Outside the Dub Plates (gold); One Drop East (double-platinum) and -- even after the departure of the charismatic Taane in 2007 -- Heal Me earned a platinum disc. Their earlier Calming of the Drunken Monkey from 1997 has also recently gone gold. Salmonella Dub have commanded concert halls and stadiums at home and across Britain, Ireland and Australia, won a loyal following for their ambitious shows, and constantly extended their music into unexpected and exciting new areas. In 1994 when they released their self-titled debut album, no one could have foreseen that one day Salmonella Dub would be performing and recording live with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (and singer Whirimako Black). A wonderful and essential set of tracks. Includes remixes from David Harrow, Groove Corporation, Dreadzone and Adrian Sherwood.
