“We wanted to have our album Outer Edges remixed by a lot of very different artists. When we made the album we went as far as we could within our own confines; exploring and stretching the outer edges. That’s why we didn’t do any collabs on the album. With this remix package we asked a lot of very different artists to take that material beyond our edges, into their respective domains. We are really happy that they managed to take our music into completely different dimensions, with such exciting results!” – Noisia
Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.

"The Edges of Twilight" is the third album by The Tea Party. Like Led Zeppelin some 25 years ago, the Tea Party draw from a wealth of influences and cultures to create a sound uniquely their own, exotic and earthy, with neo-progressive flourishes and Middle Eastern-sounding melodies. On The Edges of Twilight they start off with a hefty punch of finely crafted, hypnotic hard rock, and then ease the listener into a world where piano ballads, the blues, and hypnotic, sitar-laden meditations seem to fit together perfectly.
