Whereas their previous Rarities + Remixes collection was predominantly rooted in New Zealand, Mixes + Mavericks is undoubtedly a more international affair, with all the remixed artists hailing from the northern hemisphere. Many of the connections are the result of the duo's touring and festival appearances around the globe: they first met Gaudi at a gig in Japan, Animat and Nick Woolfson (Sounds from the Ground) at The Big Chill festival in the UK, while down temple duo Desert Dwellers were encountered in the Californian underground. Other connections were more straightforward: Brighton-based Ink Project (run by Kiwi Jez Lloyd) approached them to remix The End and Mexico's Sudden Reverb was introduced by label-mates Deep Fried Dub. Meanwhile, Mike bumped into Radioactive Man's Keith Tenniswood (of Two Lone Swordsmen fame) while he was getting a 7 record cut. Uber-producer/Killing Joke bass player Youth features in two very different ways. First up is Pitch Black's pulsating dub mix of his collaboration with Italian producer Gaudi, from their Astronaut Alchemists album. Then there is his unsolicited remix of epsilon-blue's 1999 remix of Speech, over which he added bass, beats, and blessings. This mash-up lurked for years in the archive under the title of Helmsdub, but only as a corrupted mp3 file. Thankfully a little detective work discovered that much to everyone's surprise, it had been released as Speechless (Big Circle Flat Pain Remix) on a 2004 CD compilation. A copy was tracked down, the tune was carefully re-mastered and then correctly named. Beautifully accompanied by Tim Prebble's Cyanotype images, Mixes + Mavericks is a showcase of Pitch Black's sonic diversity as remixers and maintains the trademark production aesthetic that has won them thousands of fans and filled dancefloors around the globe.

This is a new, unopened CD in its original packaging.
