Last June Sonar Kollektiv released the album „Inspiration“ (SK277CD), the wonderful collaboration between bass legend Jah Wobble and eccentric singer extraordinaire PJ Higgins. Having Dennis Bovell and a certain Lee Scratch Perry remixing „Watch How We Walk“ off said album two of the style-defining pioneers of Dub already contributed their strokes of genius.
Regarding reputation New York based legend Bill Laswell is second to none either. His remix for „I Did Bad“ is at the same time a lesson and a speleology on the subject of Dub. Plainly audible a champion of a league of it’s own at work.
Oliver Frost (next to Eva Be) is somehow the in-house dub remixer at Sonar Kollektiv. His impressive portfolio spans dubby reworks of Recloose feat. Joe Dukie, Fetsum, re:jazz and Horace Andy. Now he adds two remix versions of „I Did Bad“ to it – putting his characteristic trademark sound on the original without doing it any kind of harm.
