Peter Finnegan I love this album because it features a remix of Holiwater Only A Dream which was already a huge fave of mine. Its so haunting and chilled and getting a remix version is giving you more of a great thing. Its a win win situation. it also has an exclusive mix of a stellar* track so whats not to love

about

Retouched is the second collection of International Observer’s remixes from the last 22 years.

International Observer’s Tom Bailey has had an illustrious career: as well as being in pop trio The Thompson Twins and ambient/tech duo, Babble, he has contributed his keyboard skills to Foreigner, Grace Jones and Debbie Harry.

This collection reflects that musical history, going from platinum selling pop acts like The Exponents to the underground electronica of Pitch Black and Deep Fried Dub via Brazilian popstar SILVA. The highlight for many will be the inclusion of his dub of his own Babble project.

5 of these remixes have never been released before and 2 more have never been available outside of New Zealand.
