Today’s Top Tune on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic show here in Los Angeles is “Salahadeen”, an awesome super heavy, super dub track produced by Dub Gabriel and featuring the Master Musicians of Jajouka, David J on bass, and my multi-layered strings.
It’s named Salahadeen after Jajouka front man Bachir Attar’s baby boy, who was born the day we were in the studio recording this gem. A pretty monumental back drop to the session, it was an emotional night.

A nice piece of press came out today in The Wire about an exciting record I made last year with legendary Jamaican toaster U-Roy and New York’s finest new dub producer, Dub Gabriel. The record features David J from Bauhaus on bass and was engineered by Mark Pistol from Meat Beat Manifesto, so that’s about a zillion different original styles thrown into the big pot with a ton of Echoplex. Wish you’d been there, the studio was so hot we nearly got baked.
