DUB MELTDOWN (DELETED)
BILL LASWELL/STYLE SCOTT
It all happened on a dark and stormy night at Brooklyn's Greenpoint studios. Top-ranking bass twanger Bill Laswell meets legendary reggae sticksman Style Scott (Roots Radix, Dub Syndicate) for the first time, and the sparks fly--but not from the lightning. Unleashing the third power, these dub terrorists burn the house down with eight scorching riddims coming live and direct, with no rehearsing, first take, locked straight into the groove.
After spewing forth from the dub reactor, these fat, minimalist riddims were treated by the likes of Professor Shehab (Scarab, Qaballah, Ebn E Sync), The Eye of WordSound I-Powa, and Bill himself, making this record a true meeting of the masterminds of today's dub. It could only be called Dub Meltdown. So wake the town and tell the people--dub like this has no equal.
Sure there's a lot of new music masquerading as dub these days, but a lot of it is garbage. This record seperates the champs from the chumps, the pros from the punks--dubwise to end all the hype, and finally get it right. Take a step inside this rhythmical reactor, and prepare to be obliterated by the Dub Meltdown. .
