Ignite by Tiki & Salmonella Dub 7″ VINYL
‘IGNITE’ was first sparked during Salmonella Dub’s 25th anniversary shows featuring Tiki Taane’s return, experienced by an audience of over 26,000 people. These three epic shows are what inspired the ‘IGNITE’ song & video, and is this is the first time since the 2004 album One Drop East that the two entities have worked together in the studio.
To celebrate the release, a very limited run of 7” vinyl is available featuring the ‘IGNITE’ single and a ‘RE-IGNITE’ remix by Salmonella Dub.

Tiki says of the collaboration, “The main thing I noticed around the 25th anniversary shows, which warmed my soul, was the diversity in generations, the mix of young & old fans who were so amped to be part of the celebrations. I was really excited that my kids could experience it too as they weren’t alive when I was last in Sal Dub, so that was a huge buzz for them & for me!
“I had such a blast re-connecting with the band & music that it felt right to hit the studio to capture what we were all experiencing and that morphed into this banger called ‘IGNITE’. The song’s meaning is about standing the test of time, being strong like a mountain & deep like a sea. It’s about engaging the consciousness & igniting oneself to wake up to social issues and talking to our tamariki about the importance of staying connected, like roots of a tree, to the foundation of whanau & love.”
In addition, Salmonella Dub have also just released a deluxe box set containing 10 remastered 12″ vinyl albums with a 40 page pictorial book documenting the bands history since 1993 including unreleased photos with Tiki on tour in France and Big Day Out. A very limited run is available for pre-order up until Christmas here – Salmonella Dub Vinyl Box Set
Both Salmonella Dub and Tiki Taane are currently busy working on new albums which will be released separately in 2019. Due to extremely popular demand Salmonella Dub and Tiki Taane will be playing more shows together before the release of their new albums later next year.
