In May 2004, Dub Asylum released She Dubs Me Remixed on Antenna, a 12-inch vinyl ep featuring tunes off the debut Dub Asylum album She Dubs Me, She Dubs Me Not, remixed by various local producers - Timmy Schumacher and Substax, Rob Warner and Josh Webb, Matt Scott at Woodcut, and Audioslut.
These tunes are now getting a digital reissue, PLUS with a special bonus remix, taken from the Dub Asylum 7-inch single Ba Ba Boom (2009) - the Oogun remix, previously only available on vinyl, and now getting a widespread digital release for the first time.
On release, the vinyl remix EP got played in clubs and on the radio in Australia, France, Thailand, and of course right here in Aotearoa. The Scratch n Sniff remix made it into the BNet Alternative Top Ten chart for six weeks, highest placing was number two, and was nominated for the Best NZ Remix at the 2004 BNet Music Awards.
Grant Smithies in the Sunday Star Times reviewed the remix EP… "Best track? The hypnotically grinding Rob Warner/Josh Webb mix of What the Funk, featuring Sandy Mill, with the speaker cone-cracking bass'n'breakbeat Shumacher/Substax mix of Scratch N Sniff coming a close second."
The EP launch party/exhibition was something special – 60 of the record covers were painted by graff artists DLT and DanTippett, with the rest of the covers getting a special hand-stencilled design. Each cover was a unique work of art.
