Salmonella Dubs auspicious 7th studio album the incredibly dynamic Freak Controller is finally with us! Freak Controller is a medley of roots, rock and electronica dance styles featuring an exciting line up of guest vocalists and collaborative writing processes.

It has been two years since Salmonella Dub released their last studio album the platinum selling Heal Me in 2007. In 2008 the band toured with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and released the live album Feel the Season Change Featuring the NZSO and guests Whirimako Black, Richard Nunns and Paddy Free (Pitchblack). In June 2009 the band released the precursor to Freak Controller with the hugely popular EP Freak Local.

The band commenced work laying the rhythm beds on Freak Controller in their Hapuku studios in Kaikoura NZ just prior to the sold out Freak local tour of Australia in June 2009. More bass tracking was completed in their days off in Byron Bay during the Freak local tour. Paddy Free took over the production duties in July building the beds for the top layers overseeing the final arrangements and mixes on a bulk of the tracks. Paddy recently joined the band as an onstage guest with the NZSO tour. His first collaborations with the band as producer were back in 2001 resulting in NZ fourth biggest selling album the multi platinum Inside the dubplates. Naturally he has taken the co producer chair for Freak Controller, a role he occupies as instinctively as the one he has onstage with the band.

After the relatively downbeat Heal Me the band decided it was time to hit out with a more strident live feel. This can be heard on many of the cuts from Freak Controller... Pumping live drums on the drum and bass influenced tracks, Dub shakes and Restless soul. Salmonella dub’s last single the catchy popular radio track Freak local featuring Whirimako Black is also included along with the more roots influenced tracks, Rhythm and pattern and Up and running. The amplified blues of Untangling features a soulful duet with the Might Asterix and Whirimako Black. While MC Mana’s wonderful vocal gymnastics are showcased on the pumping rocker Walk into your mind.  The other tracks Bombastic, Deep in Southland and Wisdom by default take the listener into a deep reflective mode.

Freak Controller will be released with an exclusive limited run premium disc called Outa Control. Outa Control features four unreleased tracks written with the guest artists during the Freak Controller recording period. Bungle Fun - Featuring the Mighty Asterix.Dope Funk Manoova (Wa O Mua) - Featuring Whirimako Black. Dub Tune Barry (wasteful) - with guest vocals from Whirimako Black. That's what I want - with guest vocals from Mc Mana.
