A year ago Filastine released £00T, his third thesis of outernational urban sound, to huge critical acclaim. The album came with award-winning video clips, a contraband utopian currency, and a hundred-city tour across Europe, Asia, North America & the Middle East.
To bring £00T closer to the dancefloor we invited a gang of creative producers from across the world to tear up the album. LOOTED is a deep journey into an uncharted sound between trap, dubstep, bollywood, juke, dancehall, and a dozen forms of more traditional music. We at Post World Industries don’t love borders - not between lands, not between people and definitely not between musics. The remixers share our philosophy, delivering up a broad selection of bass music; the only unifying themes might be adventurousness, hyper drums, and tremendous amounts of low-end pressure.
Circulate False Notes is not just a song title, but a call to counterfeit, to sabotage unjust economies, to invent new systems of exchange.
In this spirit we enlisted Spain’s least-favorite bank in a unique collaboration for the cover art. A Bankia teller was given a fistfull of £00T bills for deposit, she refused and instead put the notes through the paper shredder, we used photo of this "remix" for the vinyl sleeve.

It just clicks for me. The percussion and horn sections are absolutely spectacular throughout. Bit of jungle music, bit of 007-esque espionage SURE throw in some spaghetti western themes as well. rob hammond
