The label ROIR started in 1979 as a cassette-only label, specializing in hardcore, punk, reggae, ska, dub and world music. Now, twenty years later the company realizes that the cassettes are becoming 'artifacts' and 'collector's items' and started re-releasing the best of their back catalog on cd, completely digitally remastered - as well as new, never before released albums from cutting-edge artists.
Bill Laswell's 'Dub Chamber 3' goes far into extending the concept of dub, incorporating Indian rhythms and tonalities, electronic jazz, drum and bass, ambient, hip hop and beyond. The four long instrumental tracks on the album create a fascinating atmosphere of intangible sound sculptures. Although the album concept incorperates elements of traditional dub, it's more or less a space age ambient album trying to cook up some new style dub.
Musicians featured here are Bill Laswell (bass,keyboards, beats), Jah Wobble (bass), Karsh Kale (drums, tabla), Nils Petter Molvaer (trumpet, effects), Nicky Skopelitis (guitars, beats, effects) and Craig Taborn (electric piano). Very enjoyable CD for anyone with an open mind and fans of really good instrumental/dubby music.
