Next month, The Avalanches will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album ‘Since I Left You’, which saw them become staples in Australia’s burgeoning electronic scene.

‘Frontier Psychiatrist (Mario Caldato Jr’s 85% Remix)’ will feature on a celebratory deluxe edition of the album, in honour of the anniversary. This is slated for release on June 4 via EMI Music Australia.

Prior to this track, The Avalanches shared another remix that will appear on the deluxe release: ‘Since I Left You’, remixed by New York DJ, Prince Paul. Other artists featuring on the new release include Black Dice, Leon Vynehall, Sinkane and Carl Craig.

The release also sees a special posthumous contribution from the late MF DOOM, who passed away last October. The underground hip hop master’s vocals will appear on ‘Tonight May Have To Last Me All My Life (MF DOOM Remix)’.
