The Race For Space / Remixes, features twelve tracks that tell the story of the USA and USSR’s battle for supremacy in space, this time remixed by and through the lens of PSB’s talented musical contemporaries. The album includes brand new mixes from Field Music, Boxed In, Vessels,Dutch Uncles, Robert Babicz, Maps and Copy Paste Soul plus Psychemagik, Blond:Ish, Petar Dundov and Kauf.
J. Willgoose, Esq. points out, “Even back when I was still writing this album, I was imagining the kind of remixes we could get and the artists who we’d ask. I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out; I think this is a really interesting and fresh (and in some cases mildly bonkers, a good thing in my book) reinterpretation of our songs and I’m looking forward to sharing it with our fans.”
The Race For Space, Public Service Broadcasting‘s second album, was unveiled in February 2015 at two special shows at the National Space Centre and went on to become one of the outstanding success stories of the UK independent record industry in 2015 – reaching #11 in the UK album charts in its first week and selling over 80k records worldwide since its release just over a year ago.
