21st Century Dub


East meets West on this masterful set too often overlooked when considering the best dub albums of all time. Japanese percussionist Pecker (often a collaborator with the Yellow Magic Orchestra) approached none other than Bob Marley with the idea of doing a dub/reggae album, and although Marley doesn't appear on this album, he hooked Pecker up with some of the best musicians in Jamaica (including Sly & Robbie, Augustus Pablo, Rico Rodriguez, Mikey Chung, Carlton and Aston Barrett, and Earl Wire Lindo), culminating in this stunning showcase. While word is that there were some disagreements on how it should sound, you can't discern any discord when listening to 21st Century Dub. It's hard to say anymore that any music -- reggae or otherwise -- sounds truly unique, but this is about as unique as you can find in the reggae genre, even 20 years after it was recorded. For years this was only available on cassette, as was most of ROIR's catalogue. Read more on Last.fm.
