Twenty years on, The Black Seeds mark the anniversary of their debut album “Keep On Pushing” as a first ever vinyl release.
In 1998, The Black Seeds formed their roots in Wellington - a creative, 90s rock based community that was embraced by the sounds of the likes of Shihad, Fur Patrol and Weta. 2001 marked the beginning of the Welly Roots sound and the release of The Black Seeds - Keep On Pushing – reaching Platinum sales in New Zealand and shaping the funk, soul, Afrobeat and other eclectic elements over their dub/reggae foundation.
Keep On Pushing’s bold themes of love, optimism and solidarity has resonated with fans across the world, shaping them as the creative, vibrant 8 piece band they are today. "This album marked a change culturally as well as in sound, a south pacific take on soul, where we were proud of our multicultural heritage and our accents. It was a move away from DJ’s to a big band sound. It was the beginning of The Black Seeds as a party band, we wanted to create a funky feel good sound that embraced everyone who experienced it. - Barnaby Weir, Lead singer and founding member
This special anniversary vinyl edition will feature mixes of all ten tracks from the original album.
