Bill Laswell has supplied two remixes for Trent Reznor on the new remix album Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D. Tre track in question is “Vessel;” the CD contains one version, and the triple-disc LP contains two versions (“Mix 1” and “Mix 2”). Other artists include Ladytron, Sael Williams, Fennesz and more.

A new documentary about dub music is set to be released … sometime soon evidently. Dub Echoes features a ridiculous amount of interviews with the pioneers of Jamaican dub like Lee Perry, Sly & Robbie and others, and also contemporary artists whose work is drawn from the genre, like Adam Freeland and Basement Jaxx.

All About Jazz has written an article on the growing popularity of African-inspired pop music in the northern hemisphere. Of specific interest is Gigi’s recent record Gold & Wax, produced by her husband Bill Laswell. They cite Laswell as an influence on the whole scene, and give the record an overall positive review:
There’s no way to know where each of Gigi’s eighteen named collaborators actually perform. But in some sense that’s a totally irrelevant question, since the overall sound is quite consistent and the individual voices comprise a nearly orchestral whole.
They do question whether Gigi is starting to pigeon-hole herself with a somewhat similar discography (they actually use the term “Laswellized”), but I feel the question pales in comparison to the sheer quality of music the couple releases.
