Burnt Friedman & The Nu Dub Players • Just Landed

JUST LANDED catches Burnt Friedman romping in green New Zealand with antipodean allies the Nu Dub Players. Crucial Guenther’s bass is the bottom line here, providing the rock-steady seismic undertow that buoys the crew’s piping, old-school-Kingston melodies and expertly integrated nu-school digital mischief. DJ Booth’s trippy turntable effects, Bernie the Bolt’s crafty drumming, and Friedmann’s constant production tampering send the dream-paced JUST LANDED skanking down the daffiest of digi-dub detours. And when dubwise heritage, high spirits, and microprocessor monkeyshines meet, as they do so vividly in “Hut Selector,” “Cassock Attack,” “Railway Palace, Melbourne,” and “I Shot the Fashion Victim,” it all makes for a memorable, marvelously musical mixing-desk melee.

  1. Looking forward to this. I've been enjoying Friedman and Leibzeit's "Secret Rhythms" series for a while now. Thanks again and again!
