Dub Gabriel Bass Jihad
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Azra
The droning seven minutes of "Musique de Lame" are so hypnotically tranquil one wouldn‘t dream the effervescent chaos of the mizmar-blaring "War in the Poppy Fields" came from the same record. Such is the maddened mind of Brooklyn-based bassist/producer Dub Gabriel. On Bass Jihad, his follow-up to the excellent Ascend, Gabriel revisits Arabic strings and horns while dubbing down the low-end with true Rasta artistry. "Zooklyn" showcases Middle Eastern percussion with heady electronica while proving his penchant for inventive song naming. The cross-cultural fusion is a philosophical masterpiece you don‘t have to think too hard about. Simply lay back and enjoy the ride.
