Music
Current Status:
In Season
Producers:

genre:

We gave it a B+

Combine reggae’s premier rhythm section, featuring drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare, with U.K. knob-twiddlin’ mix maestro Howie B (U2, Bjork) and the result, Drum &amp Bass Strip to the Bone by Howie B, sounds like it came from an epileptic robot with dreadlocks. The dynamic drum-and-bass duo pump out thick island beats while Howie B splinters their dense melodies with blips and synthesized funk noises. Heads will bob. B+
