'Selected Works', through AlleyKat Records and distributed by Rhythmethod, is set for release June 16 2008.

Featured on 'Selected Works' are collaborations with some of the finest MCs and musicians from both here and abroad, including Rockers Hi-Fi's Farda P, Luciano, The Mad Professor, King Kapisi, Lisa Tomlins, Antsman, Barnaby Weir and Oakley Grenell.

'Selected Works' includes five new unreleased tracks: 'Stand' (with MCs Luciano and King Kapisi), 'Breakin' Rocks', 'Once In A Lifetime', 'Sific Dub' and 'Nothing On Me'.

Remixes on the album include Agent Alvin's remix of 'Sunny Day', Subtropic's (UK) revision of 'Lifeforms' and new Nomad remixes of 'Let's Play' and 'Take a Sip'.

The first 1000 CDs will be released in Limited Edition packaging with unique artwork, customisable cut-out and a felt CD jacket. A national tour commences July to August.
