The latest release from experimental composer/bassist/producer Bill Laswell is absolutely all about the bass.
The seven-track piece, Bass Culture, features not only Laswell, but a divers group of bassists including funk icon Bootsy Collins (James Brown, Parliament-Funkadelic, Bootsy’s Rubber Band), Robbie Shakespeare (one half of reggae legends Sly & Robbie), Jah Wobble (P.I.L.) and Gabe Katz (noise rockers Blind Idiot God).
Here’s what the connected dub, ambient, experimental pieces sound like:
Laswell’s work is available at his M.O.D. Technologies online store.
