Superstar TobyMac's "Amazing" Remix Project, Dubbed & Freq'd, Makes Energetic Debut
March 31, 2012

After receiving five GRAMMY® awards, countless other accolades, and with album sales in excess of 10 million, it's no surprise that critics and fans alike bravoed superstar TobyMac upon the release of Dubbed & Freq'd: A Remix Project, his first remix album in seven years. Fusing his signature rock-pop, hip-hop and urban styles with a treatment of today's electronic music uprising, the album offers an outstanding new interpretation of 12 of Toby's classics to an incredibly wide audience. Immediately upon release, the album made its debut at No. 2 on the iTunes® Christian & Gospel Albums chart.

To give fans a chance to build their own remixes, Toby has launched an interactive app on his Facebook page where visitors can create their own remix of his hit song "Showstopper". After creating it, fans can share their unique remix via Facebook and Twitter. To check it out, please click here.

"For remix records, an artist can be very involved or back off, and for me it's the latter," Toby explains. "For all of my remix records, I choose the producers and remixers and let them do their thing. Then I either say 'yes' or push back with 'what if you did this or that?' The way I see it, I've already taken my shot at the songs and put the recipe together."

Media have been eager to praise TobyMac for his adventurous new project, and here is just a sampling of what people are saying about Dubbed & Freq'd:

"...if you're familiar with [TobyMac's] music and are interested in hearing it in a fresh new way, look no further… and prepare to be freaked." - New Release Tuesday

"Such a crisp creative project could only come from one of the industry's best. TobyMac puts together another great release… no surprise there." - CMAddict.com

"'Lose My Soul' and 'Ignition' are both simply amazing, with the former carrying hot piano (yes piano) keys while the latter has dramatic production throughout. McKeehan takes two already great songs and re-mixes them into pure creative awesomeness... this will be spinning in my player for a while." - Jesus Freak Hideout

"TobyMac not only makes great music with amazing production value, he makes essential music, and getting Dubbed & Freq'd is just a natural choice for any fan." - Christian Music Zine

In addition to the release of Dubbed & Freq'd, TobyMac has concert plans as well, having announced the expansion of his unplugged "A Night of Stories and Songs" tour through April 21. He has also confirmed appearances at high-profile festivals including Spirit West Coast, Creation East and AtlantaFest, in additional to many more.
