Pig&Dan have announced a follow up to their classic long player Destination Unknown, which is set to be released on Bedrock Records on 1 July.
Destination Unknown II comes eight years on from its first instalment, and at first glance it’s worth the wait, featuring an eclectic selection of trip-hop, dubbed-out electronica and sun-drenched, downtempo sound palettes.
Commenting on the album, the duo said, “We both thrive on diving deep into sonic experimentation. After years of itching to revisit our more melancholic edge, the global standstill gave us the chance to get back to our roots again. As they say, ‘there’s always a positive from a negative’.
“We wanted to explore musical flavours that always resonated with us on a personal level and challenge ourselves to create music without boundaries or genre that, hopefully, remains timeless. Very much like the previous album in this series, we feature a mixed bag of grooves that represents a flow of influence from what we feel gets under our skin.”
The album will be released as a limited edition triple release package, featuring a re-mastered version of the original twenty-one track album, Destination Unknown, which makes up CD2 and CD3 and has been out of print since it was released back in 2014.
“I am so happy to be releasing the follow up album to Destination Unknown,” said Bedrock label head John Digweed. “The first album blew me and the label’s fans away with just how talented these guys are and what a varied range of musical skills they possess.
“Destination Unknown II lays down a brand new template of amazing after-hours, sunrise and sunset grooves that’s sure to feature across every playlist this summer and beyond”.
