Bill Laswell: Dub Saboteur
Bill Laswell has been one of the most provocative figures in modern music for over two decades. The producer and bassist came to renown as the producer of Herbie Hancock's mid-80s hit, "Rock-it" and productions of Mick Jagger and Nona Hendryx. But Laswell's real art was as a sonic provocateur and Dub music assassin. He put together hallucinogenic world music ensembles including Materiel, deep ambient excursions and free jazz assaults with Last Exit and Sonny Sharrock, all informed by the sound shifting aesthetic of Reggae dub music. In this first of two features, we hear about the art of sound, collaboration, and deep bass dub with Bill Laswell.
