this is the dub(u) calling

Excellent dub mixed with eastern percussion and strings. One of the most passionate and psychopatically charged dub releases. Trust me Raz mesianai is a percussion geneius.

They Say All Music Guide

Due to releases like Jerusalem Under Fire, Israeli percussionist Badawai (real name Raz Mesinai) has become one of the world’s most renowned Middle Eastern percussionists. He’s become an influential figure for the New York City trip-hop (or illbient) style of underground dancehall/dub music, a scene that has spawned the likes of DJ Spooky, DJ Olive, and a host of others. Amazingly, almost all the sounds you hear on Jerusalem Under Fire are played by Badawai himself, who handles percussion, flute, and effects duties, as well as supplying the string arrangements and remixing and rearranging the songs. Two other musicians (violinist Simi Sernaker and tabla player Karsh Kale) help fill out the already rich sound, while all of the compositions are entirely instrumental. Highlights are many, but the very best would have to be the constant violin swirl of “Soldier of Midian,” and the percussion-driven opening track “Critical Combustion,” and the traditional reggae sounds of “Kill the Messenger.” – Greg Prato
