Overview

What's impressive about the music bubbling up from Calvin Johnson's Dub Narcotic studios isn't just its consistently high quality, but also its stylistic breadth, applying Johnson's distinctively minimalist production aesthetic to sounds ranging from rap to indie-pop to electronica. Selector Dub Narcotic compiles nearly two dozen tracks recorded at the studio between 1993 and 1997, with a roster spanning from pop superstars (Beck) to underground icons (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) to one-off projects (Amelia, Peter, Scott and Calvin, which assembles members of Heavenly and Built to Spill along with the ubiquitous Johnson himself); much of the music here is excellent, with relative unknowns like the moody indie-popsters KG more than holding their own alongside the more renowned likes of Versus and the Make-Up. Not merely a solid introduction to the Olympia, Washington scene which is Dub Narcotic's bread and butter, Selector is also a virtual time capsule documenting some of the most impressive music produced by the Amerindie community during the mid-1990s.
