While making my first record "So Long" in Brooklyn I was possessed with the Dub music that came out of Jamaica. I wasn't trying to make a Dub record, but I wanted that heavy bass sound and ambience they were achieving. I was heavily into King Tubby, Bill Laswell, Mad Professor, and Lee "Scratch" Perry. I read Lee's book "People Funny Boy" and right away learned that the roots of Reggae came from early New Orleans R&B. It is through my obsessive research in those days that I came to meet Josh Werner through our mutual friend Prince Polo. Fast forward ten years, and Josh has toured with Lee Perry, and produced one of his records and has worked extensively with Bill Laswell as we both did on Josh's "Helio Parallax" record.

On this night we will be dropping beats and making more ambience around songs that delve deeper into consciousness. Margaret Hebert will be looping and setting the vibe on keys.
