Released in 2002, the Loop Select 004 CD represents another cross section of Aotearoa's audio output: sampling from some of that year's hottest local albums (by Salmonella Dub, Dub Asylum and Loop's own 50Hz), including a couple of remixes (of tracks by Che Fu and Del Rey System) and exclusive new tracks by Loop favourites Fat Freddy's Drop, epsilon-blue and Ekto, and introducing Kora another crop of fresh new faces with bright musical futures.
Loop Select 004’s musical selections reflect a year in which New Zealand muic well and truly took off internationally. Several of the featured acts toured overseas in 2002 with Salmonella Dub, epsilon-blue and Fat Freddy’s Drop all having appeared at the sellout Return Of The Aotearoanz New Zealand music showcase held in London. On Loop Select 004 you’ll hear from New Zealanders based all around the globe and collaborations between local and overseas musicians.
