The Neptunes, Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter, and Modjo are among the acts that have contributed remixes to the Air odds-and-ends collection "Everybody Hertz," due Feb. 19 from Astralwerks. The 10-track album also includes the previously unreleased "The Way You Look Tonight," plus a live video for "People in the City" shot last summer in Los Angeles.

"Don't Be Light" is represented by an edited version from Bangalter, a hip-hop-leaning remix by the Neptunes, a more trance-oriented reworking by the Hacker, and additional interpretations by Roger Manning (Moog Cookbook, Jellyfish) and Mr. Oizo. Dub legend Adrian Sherwood tries his hand at "How Does It Make You Feel," the original version of which is included in edited form. Modjo and Jack Lahana contribute remixes of "People in the City."

"Don't Be Light," "People in the City," and "How Does It Make You Feel" are all drawn from this year's "10,000 Hz. Legend" album, which peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart and No. 3 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums tally. The set, which has sold more than 80,000 units to date in the U.S., according to SoundScan, was a finalist for the inaugural Virgin Megastore Shortlist Prize for Artistic Achievement In Music.
