I am going to leave off this week with a couple of tracks from the Basic Channel/Rhythm & Sound/Wackies axis of dub.

Moritz Von Oswald & Mark Ernestus are German techno musicians that incorporated dub elements into their sound as Basic Channel. They then started a side project called Rhythm & Sound that created the most atmospheric riddims possible and found original reggae heros to toast over them. As time went on they decided to reissue their favorite originals from NY reggae label Wackies through the Basic Replay sublabel.

This stuff is so good & influential to techno today that it will continue to reappear throughout my posing, but here is a teaser.

Rhythm & Sound - King In My Empire (W/ Cornel Campbell) off of Rhythm & Sound w/ the Artists

Keith Hudson - California off of the Basic Replay reissue of Playing it Cool & Playing it Right
