i have heard some praxis, and enjoyed that a bit i think, and wasn't he involved in tabla beat science? i don't know, this guy's all-over-the-place work ethic seems kinda dodgy

it's all pretty good right?

 

I actually don't really know but the albums I have indicate that his style is pretty much just 'anything i do is going to sound similarly enjoyable and chill'

 

 

Radioaxiom: A Dub Transmission with Jah Wobble is good

 

Points of Order is pretty awesome, drum and bass

I really liked his 'Dreams of Freedom' Bob Marley remix album. Most of the other stuff I've heard of his I'm indifferent about.

yeah, Bill Laswell is good stuff, i saw him live with Praxis and Tabla Beat science. What REALLY kicked ass though, was when Buckethead came out of nowhere to come on stage with Tabla Beat. Apparently, he's the one responsible for Herbie Hancock's "Rockit" as far as the record scratching goes, which was supposedly the 1st time that sound was used in a musical context (recorded anyway)

Naw Laswell played bass on Future Shock - the scratching was someone else - Grandmaster D? Something like that.

 

Laswell is a little hit and miss for me...

i'm a huge fan of his 'dreams of freedom: reinterpretations of bob marley in dub'

it's bob and the wailers mostly minus bob.
