Ladyman Viagra Opus

Lady Man, ostensibly, is the sleazier side of Raz Mesinai,better known for crossbreeding dub rhythms with traditional Middle Eastern folk music as Badawi and as one-half of early ‘90s NYC dub deconstructionists Sub Dub. While there are some airs of parody and cheekiness running through Viagra Opus (“Old Spice” is my favorite track title), tracks like “Infomercial” and “Feeely Hard” are no less dark than Mesinai’s work with Sub Dub. The tracks are all good in and of themselves, especially dancehall-flavored ones like “Steppin’ Lady Style” , but when it’s all done, you’re still left wondering what exactly the story is behind this Viagra opus.
