Bill Laswell Version 2 Version-A Dub Transmission

Bassist/producer Bill Laswell’s fifth installment of Roir Dub Sessions continues his habit of interchangeable but penetratingly devious dub. The fact that this sounds like a lot of previous works doesn’t quell its beauty; few beyond Lee Perry and King Tubby have evolved the genre, but Laswell does here with trademarked ease. The deep puncture of “Dystopia” and casual swing on “Night City” keep Babylon a volume control’s flick away. Joined by world class musicians (Jah Wobble, Karsh Kale, Bernie Worrell, Abdou Mbdoup), this transmission has been received, implemented and accepted.
