Various Artists Bill Laswell Presents: Trojan Dub Massive Vol. 1 And Vol.2
- Words: David Ma
- Label: Sanctuary
Bill Laswell's shapeshifting career-as a label chief, performer, and legendary producer-has never been anything less than broad ranging and masterful. With a discography that begins in the '70s, and shows no signs of slowing, Laswell's latest endeavor is a reinterpretation of choice selections from Trojan Records' legendary archives. Laswell reconstructs the treasured recordings of King Tubby, The Upsetters, Prince Jammy, Augustus Pablo, Gregory Isaacs' All Stars, and a slew of other dub reggae icons. With consistency as his forte, Bill Laswell's latest offering reflects his status as a fearless musician who prolifically tackles projects that most producers wouldn't dare touch-and probably couldn't even if they wanted to.
