Faithless - Passing The Baton - Live In Brixton
In April 2011, Faithless bowed out with a live show at Brixton Academy. Performed in front of a sell out crowd, 'Passing The Baton' was also broadcast live via satellite to cinemas across the world – the first dance music event of its type.
This DVD, 'Passing The Baton - Live From Brixton', captures the band at their very best. The unique gig is presented in 5.1 surround sound and features their biggest moments including 'Insomnia', 'God Is A DJ', 'We Come 1', 'Salva Mea' and many more.
Bonus features include a rare and exclusive interview with the band (including Rollo) and a photo gallery of stills from the Brixton show. In addition to the DVD, the bonus 'live' CD brings together all of Faithless' hits from the past decade and a half.
One of UK music's greatest ever dance acts, Faithless' 17 year career highlights include 15 million album sales, a Triple Platinum Greatest Hits, 6x UK Gold Certified albums including 'No Roots' that debuted in the UK at #1 and the most recent 2010 album 'The Dance' that reached #2, 6x Top 10 singles and a catalogue of remixes and collaborations that reads like a roll-call of dance royalty. Incredible statistics though they are, they tell but half the story...
When Faithless, comprised of Maxi Jazz, Sister Bliss and Rollo, first emerged in the mid-1990's, the idea that a dance music act could produce rich, full-length albums rather than one-off tracks, sell out live concerts, headline festivals and bring together all kinds of genres and music fans, seemed quite revolutionary. Over the course of their career Faithless changed both the game and all perceptions of what a dance music act could be, and 15 years later, the blueprint they helped create has laid the foundations for the likes of Chase & Status, Pendulum, Nero and countless others.
Often political and always passionate, Faithless were musical movers and shakers of the highest order. This DVD goes some way in explaining why they remain one of the best-loved outfits of the past 2 decades.
