"As a collection of International Observer’s [Tom Bailey] remixes, ‘Touched’ collates over 15 years of studio trickery into a single disc, picking up some old favourites, a few hard to find obscurities and a handful of unreleased gems along the way.
This collection reflects that musical history, going from platinum selling pop acts like Bic Runga ['Drive' gets dubbed out] and Stellar* to the underground electronica of Pitch Black and Warp Technique, from modern reggae stars The Black Seeds to globetrotting beatsmiths Bombay Dub Orchestra and Minimal Compact. It even includes a remix of his son Jackson’s acclaimed Tapes project (championed by Thom Yorke amongst others).
Indicating the many years he spent there, more than half of the tracks originate in New Zealand, and some have never previously been available outside of those shores."
