On the 17th of June, Public Service Broadcasting will release The Race For Space / Remixes, twelve tracks that tell the story of the USA and USSR’s battle for supremacy in space, this time remixed by and through the lens of PSB’s talented musical contemporaries. The album includes brand new mixes from Field Music, Boxed In, Vessels, Dutch Uncles, Robert Babicz, Maps and Copy Paste Soul plus Psychemagik, Blond:Ish, Petar Dundov and Kauf. The Race For Space reached #11 in the UK album charts in its first week – with 5 weeks in the top 40 and 14 weeks in the top 100 – selling over 75k records worldwide since its release, recently achieving Silver status in the UK with 60k chart registered sales and registering it as one of the top 20 best selling independent releases of 2015. J. Willgoose Esq. points out, “Even back when I was still writing this album, I was imagining the kind of remixes we could get and the artists who we’d ask. I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out; I think this is a really interesting and fresh (and in some cases mildly bonkers, a good thing in my book) reinterpretation of our songs and I’m looking forward to sharing it with our fans.” // “This is the pinnacle of what PSB are trying to achieve, by breathing new life into dusty old relics, and it makes for truly magical, exhilarating listening” The 405 // “Vividly conveys the triumph, the glamour and the tragedy of the space race” Album Of The Week Time Out // “Rich and evocative, ‘The Race For Space’ is the sound of two young men gazing heavenwards and dreaming” Uncut // “Vibrates with poignancy and grandeur” Q // “Out of this world” The Observer **** // “A magnificent record” GQ // “A rocket-fuelled silver screen roller coaster… PSB are pushing the boundaries of what rock music can be” DIY
