The Manchester-based trio (pianist Chris Illingworth, drummer Rob Turner and bassist Nick Blacka) have been internationally acclaimed as electrifying live performers, innovative soundtrack composers and a collective that channels electronic and club culture atmospheres as well as minimalist influences or jazz heritage. GGP / RMX is a concept the group has been promoting for years. It comes to brilliant fruition as a vibrant reinterpretation of their fifth album and self-defining masterpiece, GoGo Penguin. Every track on the album is reinterpreted, as well as a fascinating new version of the previously rare gem Petit_a (which was originally released only in Japan before appearing on GGP's digital EP Live From Studio 2).
