Music Review: 'Axiom Dub: Mysteries of Creation'

Posted on

Two zoned-out subgenres — dub and ambient — blend together on the disquieting double disc Axiom Dub: Mysteries of Creation, featuring new tracks by vets (Jah Wobble, Sly & Robbie) and new bloods (DJ Spooky, the Orb) alike. With their sandpaper-on-wood percussion and disembodied voices, DJ Spooky’s ”Anansi Abstrakt” and New Kingdom’s ”Black Falcon Dub” make you feel like you’ve wandered into the creepy back alley behind a world-music club. Mood music for The X-Files crowd. B+
