Bill Laswell

Recommended Posts

Dude was/is a true innovator of music and has probably changed music as much as anyone else in recent times. He has tons of work I hate, but a lot I love. Hopefully some of you mugs can post up some of his worthwhile work:

A little history for you.

With the man Pharoah Sanders.

 

Material - This song was huge with downtempo DJs.

 

Still one of the illest videos ever and of course the worlds introduction to scratching. Ask Jazzy Jeff about what this did for him.

Some his collaborations with Jah Wobble are mind bending...

 

Appreciate or hate, but dude has flipped the script more times than most cats even know.

Laswell is one of those guys you need a highlight reel to. He goes from amazing to underwhelming real quick.

Are great albums.

 

Did he play with Jah Wobble? I used to work at this deli back in high school, and the owner constantly played Jah Wobble. For some reason I think I remember him talking about Bill Laswell.

Yup.. The Bukethead.

 

I need to cop some of that Dubadelic.

Method of Defiance is worth the download, for those into experimental jazz and whatever else they got going on.
