Overview

Bill Laswell's second compendium of experimental breakbeat culture from New York and beyond, Valis II is a double-CD featuring everything from dirty instrumental hip-hop and dub to jungle-funk and freewheeling turntable tricknology. A lot of the usual Laswell suspects are featured, including Praxis, Spectre, Buckethead, and Corporal Blossom (aka Greenpoint engineer Robert Musso), but a handful of tracks by newcomers such as SIMM, Scanner, Babu, and Shinro Ohtake (together with Boredoms frontman Yamatsuka Eye) make for an interesting collection. Like many Laswell-related comps it's doubtful much of this will stand up, say, a year later, but until then, Valis II is a fine, varied listen.
