Land of Baboon, Vol. 1

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
There seems to be an identifiable Brooklyn sound developing in the world of electronic dance music; it's a combination of Middle Eastern inflections and reggae basslines, sampladelic hip-hop and twisted drum & bass. And while such descriptors bring the name Laswell immediately to mind, it's worth pointing out that much of this music is emanating from places other than the famous Greenpoint studio -- lots of credit goes to the WordSound crew, including various members of the Crooklyn Dub Consortium.

There seems to be an identifiable Brooklyn sound developing in the world of electronic dance music; it's a combination of Middle Eastern inflections and reggae basslines, sampladelic hip-hop and twisted drum & bass. And while such descriptors bring the name Laswell immediately to mind, it's worth pointing out that much of this music is emanating from places other than the famous Greenpoint studio -- lots of credit goes to the WordSound crew, including various members of the Crooklyn Dub Consortium. That's the crew responsible for this fine effort, a compilation of eerie desert dub and spaced-out jungle. Professor Shehab and Lloop collaborate on the very arid "Drunken Monkey," with its exotic strings, free reeds and clay-pot percussion; "The Question of Conscience" redefines the whole illbient thing with toy piano and Pablo-esque melodica. Best of all is Dr. Israel's "Residence Dub," which begins as a snaky, languorous reggae groove and then suddenly whipsaws into hyperactive jungle about halfway through all without the bassline ever needing to change. There's hope for American breakbeat culture yet.
