Tony has overseen the project as well as contributed on several remixes. We suggested a few names to him and he found the rest of the remixers, and cover art designer, New York artist Ian Bradley.We held a competition for one non-New York producer and ended up with a track by Sound Shikari, an excellent young producer from Oman.
New York is close to our hearts. Garry has worked in most of the great studios there over the years and we have both stayed, worked and performed in the vibrant city on many occasions.
The great thing about remix projects is that our music is taken to a different place - one where we would never ordinarily go on our albums. It's always exciting to see the diversity that the remixes bring.
The New York Remixes album shows some of that diversity, and the rich culture that the city has to share.
We hope you enjoy listening to and experiencing this as much as we have.
- Andrew and Garry
The album comes out digitally on Six Degrees Records on the 25th September 2012 and will be available from all online music stores. In the meantime here's a free download in anticipation of The New York Remixes.

Upon learning of his condition, a few close friends, artists and industry professionals have come together to rally around Chebiji to assist him with his fight.
An incredible collection of some of global music's finest musicians have gathered to contribute exclusive tracks and remixes to help raise money for fusion pioneer Cheb i Sabbah's health care costs, in his battle against cancer. We were blessed to be asked and have contributed a track that we are very proud of called Flame of The Forest - featuring vocals and violin by Kartik our longtime vocalist as well as UK's tabla maestro Sirishkumar who has also been with us for many years.
We ask you to join us to help Cheb i Sabbah in his time of need.
Featured artists on the double album include Ustad Zakir Hussain, Kailash Kher, Pandit G. S. Sachdev, Riffat Sultana & Sukhawat Ali Khan, Nitin Sawhney, Natacha Atlas, Karsh Kale, Bauhaus, Cheb i Sabbah, Transglobal Underground, MIDIval PunditZ, Amina Annabi, Bill Laswell & Gigi, Opium Feat. MC Raï, Mercan Dede, Janaka Selekta, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Azam Ali & Loga Ramin Torkian, Dub Kirtan All Stars Feat. Freq Nasty, David Starfire & Rik Sharaj, Jef Stott, Watcha Clan, Emam & Friends, Jai Uttal.
From Cheb i Sabbah:
"It was in May of 2011 when doctors told me that I had stage 4 stomach cancer and it had spread to my left lung and liver. I was given a less than six months sentence to live. They were wrong in part of their diagnosis; they did not take into account the power of prayers and love from the thousands of friends, fans and families that i received. It is because of your love, prayers and generosity that I am still alive today.
After a major surgery and three months of intensive and painful chemo therapy in Germany, i have opted for phase two, an alternative and more holistic approach to healing in India and the US."
You can help Cheb i Sabbah by purchasing a copy of the Samaya Benefit Album. 100% of the net proceeds will go directly to Cheb i Sabbah's Health Care Treatment Fund.
The official website to lead the campaign is Sweet Relief Musicians Fund:
Sweet Relief Musicians Fund provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.
