Undoubted godfathers of NZ dub/electronica, Pitch Black, will make a triumphant return to Splore with a spectacular assault of sound and visuals.
Pitch Black is touring their new studio album, Filtered Senses. It has been nine years since the award-winning duo (comprised of multimedia artist, Michael Hodgson and Salmonella Dub producer, Paddy Free) released their last album, Rude Mechanicals in 2007, and 17 years since their ground-shifting debut, Futureproof.
Over the years, aside from rousing dance floor punters, generating rave reviews, winning awards and gaining thousands of fans across the world, they have allured favour among many DJs (both radio and club) including John Peel (Radio One/BBC), Nick Luscombe (Xfm), Greg Roberts (Dreadzone) and Pete Lawrence(Big Chill). Their music has been used in fashion shows, computer games, TV shows such as True Blood and CSI plus many films, including the Oscar nominated Whale Rider.
The pioneering pair have since been living in different cities, and working on material of their own alongside their project as Pitch Black.
