BIOS:

Drummer Sly Dunbar, along with bassist Robbie Shakespeare, rose to international prominence as one-half of the duo known simply as Sly & Robbie, widely regarded as reggae's best and most innovative rhythm section. Together, the duo have lent their rhythmic punch and near-telepathic interplay to some of reggae's most important sessions, as well as recording their own albums throughout the '80s and '90s, and accepted invitations from rock artists to put in guest appearances at recording sessions. Dunbar has also recorded several solo albums.

Sly had an affinity for the drums from a young age, even constructing his own set out of empty food cans. At age 15, he began playing real drums in his first band, the Yardbrooms; after dropping out of school and briefly taking a day job, he decided to concentrate on music full-time.

He joined up with Dave & Ansell Collins, who featured the 16-year-old's drumming on their 1969 album Double Barrell. After playing with the Mighty Diamonds and I-Roy, Dunbar met bassist Robbie Shakespeare in the early '70s at a recording session headed by producer Bunny Lee. The two discovered an instant empathy, and in 1974, they formed their own Taxi Records label and began marketing themselves as a production and rhythm section team. Their stature grew quickly, as they were asked to perform with reggae giants like Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, and Burning Spear; however, the duo's real break came in 1976, when Peter Tosh featured their rhythm work on Legalize It and made them part of his touring band 2 years later. The increased exposure spelled success for Dunbar and Shakespeare' careers as producers, musicians, and label heads, as Taxi released a number of important recordings, with Sly & Robbie as backing musicians.

 


During this period, Sly released the solo LPs Simply Sly Man (1976) and Sly, Wicked and Slick (1977). The first official Sly & Robbie release came in 1981 with Sly and Robbie Present Taxi, which was followed the next year by Dunbar's final solo album to date, Sly-Go-Ville. A bevy of albums, some released only in Jamaica, followed; most notable among those are Rhythm Killers (1987) and Dubs for Tubs: A Tribute to King Tubby (1990), which demonstrated the pair's 1980s shift from traditional reggae into dub. Session work for others continued during the decade as well, most notably with Black Uhuru and pop and rock artists like Grace Jones, Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, and Herbie Hancock.

Dunbar continued to work with Shakespeare into the '90s, the two shifting their focus once again to dancehallin an effort to bring reggae back to its former state of overseas popularity; they have also worked with American rap artists on such albums as 1990's Silent Assassin.

Sly&Robbie er en legendarisk jamaicansk rytmeseksjon og produksjonsduo, knyttet primært til reggae-sjangeren. Trommeslager Sly Dunbar og bassist Robert Shakespeare startet sitt samarbeid på midten av 1970-tallet etter å ha etablert seg separat i Jamaica som profesjonelle musikere.

 

EIVIND AARSET

Into the synchronicity of technique and vision he has sculpted since his early teens, Aarset has absorbed inspiration from a variety of musicians, including Bill Laswell, Marilyn Mazur, and, above all, Jon Hassell. That said collaborators are all masters at creating dream logics of their own is no coincidence, for he too is the student of another time-space continuum. With guitar as writing instrument and an array of electronics as his paper, he takes down field notes of a culture we’ve never known, a culture that slides down the ladders of our DNA and airbrushes mantras onto our microbes. More on Aarset HERE

Eivind Aarset har greid det mesterstykket å skape sin helt egne og umiskjennelige identitet. Han har en formidabel dynamikk i uttrykket sitt. I det ene øyeblikket kan han spille de sarteste gitartonene som noensinne har kommet ut av en elektrisk gitar, og i neste øyeblikk kan han vrenge ut den mest brutale støyen du kan tenke deg. Men han har et enestående gehør når det gjelder å lytte, og kun spille det som musikken krever. Han setter aldri seg selv foran helheten. Samtidig har han en trang til å utforske musikalske retninger som måtte by seg, noe som gjennom årene har åpnet dører til samarbeid med størrelser som Jon Hassell, Marilyn Mazur, Dhafer Youssef, Andy Sheppard, Laurie Anderson og Bill Laswell

Vladislav Delay is one of the pseudonyms of Sasu Ripatti (born 1976), a Finnish electronic musician. He has also recorded as Luomo, Sistol, Uusitalo, Conoco, and Ripatti.

Ripatti has released EPs and albums on labels such as Raster-Noton, Force Tracks, Chain Reaction, Mille Plateaux, Resopal, and Sigma Editions. He also founded the Finnish music label Huume Recordings and currently runs a label called Ripatti, on which he has released the album Visa and several footwork-oriented singles under the name Ripatti.

From 2009 onwards Ripatti has been performing drums and percussion in the Moritz von Oswald Trio alongside Moritz von Oswald and Max Loderbauer. With the Moritz von Oswald Trio he has released two albums and a live LP. He has also released an album in 2011 with his own experimental jazz/electronic group, the Vladislav Delay Quartet.He performed as Vladislav Delay at an All Tomorrow's Parties festival in May 2011 curated by Animal Collective.
