Gig Information

Pitch Black's new album, Third Light, came out this September and they're celebrating the launch at Neck of the Woods, with support from the Dastardly Bounder and Toxic Glitter.

PITCH BLACK

Pitch Black are Michael Hodgson and Paddy Free. Having pumped their way through New Zealand’s electronic music scene since their inaugural performance at the annual Gathering New Year's eve festival in 1996, they have spent the subsequent years rousing dance floor punters, generating rave reviews, winning awards and gaining thousands of fans across the world.

Hard to box into a single audio 'genre', Pitch Black is a combination of musical journeys. Their sound is distinctive; ranging from organic ambient beginnings and layered soundscapes to skanking keyboards, cutting acid riffs and thumping rhythmic grooves, with dub being the glue that holds their sound together. One critic has described them as like Orbital meets King Tubby, or Rhythm and Sound in Technicolor.

It is their live show that really makes Pitch Black stand out from the rest of the crowd, both sonically and visually. Their tracks take on an added dynamism and their performances reveal the dialectic behind the band - Paddy wants to do it for the crowd, Michael wants to do it to the crowd. Visually they are in another dimension thanks to Michael's cutting edge visuals.

They have toured the world relentlessly, playing everywhere from Amsterdam to Zagreb and the streets of Las Vegas to the Australian outback, supporting acts such as Coldcut, Skream, Easy Dub All Stars and System 7 along the way.

TOXIC GLITTER

Seven years in the making, Toxic Glitter deliver a deep deep sound that is set to make the biggest system feel pain.

Playing exclusively live mixing from stage Toxic Glitter play a unique original live set that is reminiscent of the golden era of big room techno dark and heavy taking you on a true journey.

THE DASTARDLY BOUNDER

The Dastardly Bounder plays music for people, not plants, although the plants would probably enjoy it.
