About the latest release: In Between Times (The Remixes)
Globetrotting pioneer of Dub/Electronica, Gaudi has been winning over audiences around the planet with his eclectic style and versatility, his roof raising live performances and of course, through a series of excellent album releases.

Now, the tracks from that project have received the remix treatment from an international cast of some of the finest producers working in various niches of today’s electronica scene.
Amani Friend & Treavor Moontribe, collectively known as Desert Dwellers, add their beautiful downtempo, psy-bass textures to the song, “Tamino & the Temple Of Dub”, a track that prominently features the flute of Raja Ram, founder of TIP Records and frequent collaborator on Simon Posford’s Shpongle project.
UK Dubsters, Zion Train are a perfect choice to bring their classic dub-wise production to “Put Your Guns Down” (featuring Michael Rose), while another ground breaking UK ensemble, Dub Pistols add some tuff, electro-ragga breaks to “Babylon Is Falling” (featuring Deadly Hunta on vocals).
Toby Marks aka Global Electronica pioneer, Banco De Gaia turns “Hurriya” (feat. Tahar Momoproject) into a North African Electronic epic and Seb Taylor (aka Kaya Project) brings new, nuanced acoustic & electronic layers to “Subtle Obscurity”.
Yet another groundbreaking global electronica trailblazer, Deep Forest put their own unique stamp on “Spiritual Orphans” (featuring spoken words by author and social thinker, Gregory Sams & Israeli based, Russian born Producer/ DJ, Perfect Stranger’s version of “Put Your Guns Down” is a trance-fueled, dance-floor killer.
Amazing & diverse remixes from Six Degrees label-mate, David Starfire, Japanese Psy-Trance-master, Joujouka and Alexart round out one of the freshest collections of re-rubs in recent memory, making the In Between Times Remixes a worthy companion to the original release which inspired it.
A global favorite in the dub/electronica/world music scenes, producer and solo artist GAUDI keeps his ever-growing fan base with his infectious bass-driven tunes and innovative production techniques.
There’s no easy way to encapsulate GAUDI’s vast body of work, for the past three decades he has been shattering genre barriers, pioneering world-music, electronic-dub and reggae music, amassing a stunning collection of originals, albums, collaborations and remixes with artists such as: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Bob Marley, Simple Minds, Lamb, Trilok Gurtu, Shpongle, Apache Indian, Soom T, Michael Rose, Deep Forest, Beats Antique, Sizzla, Michael Stipe & Asha Bhosle, Michael Franti, Dub Pistols, Grandmaster Flash, & Krs One, The Beat, Barrington Levy, Horace Andy, The Orb & Lee Scratch Perry, Afrika Bambaataa to mention a few.
In 2007 Gaudi with his Six Degrees album “Dub Qawwali” (the amazing collaborative project with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan) received a nomination for the World Music Awards.
Whether he is finessing high-profile projects in the studio, or whipping a crowd into a frenzy, the Italian-born UK-based artist places all importance on sonic perfection, and providing the best aural experience for his fans. He has done so for his entire career, which has seen the release of 14 solo albums, over a hundred compilations, 250 productions and a number of movie soundtracks. Live, every GAUDI performance is unique and unpredictable in the best possible way as, honoring the traditions of old school dub, he never uses a computer on stage.
A consummate musician and live performer, he plays theremin, minimoog, vocoder, tape echoes, percussion, multi-effects, stylophone and dub sirens, mixing his live dub vocals thru analogue equipment to maximum effect.
Beyond the music, a burning passion reveals itself in a scathing rebuttal of tyranny and oppression through sonic resistance.
