Specials

Remixes And Versions From Solid Ground

The Black Seeds’ latest release, Specials, is the follow up to their hugely successful Solid Ground, which spent 7 consecutive weeks in the Top 5 of New Zealand’s music charts and extended The Black Seeds’ reach from Australia and Europe to the United States. In the album’s liner notes, the band describes Specials as “an opportunity to present songs from our Solid Ground LP in a new light and encourage experimentation by giving a range of artists, producers, and MC’s—some established, some up and coming, from New Zealand and around the world—a chance to put their take on a ‘Seeds’ song.” Also included on the 14-track digital album are B sides, dub and acoustic versions that were recorded during the Solid Ground sessions. The resulting album “mashes up our Solid Ground LP into a huge range of styles and genres – from funk to dubstep to acoustic to electronic and back again.” Specials features a healthy mix of the familiar 'The Black Seeds' sound and some surprising tracks that “come totally out of left field.”

The Black Seeds have begun working on their fifth studio album. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy Specials.
