Boomkat Product Review:
Featuring a wonderful array of Laswell regulars and many special guests, this fascinating full-length of recent soundtrack work is one of the few collections that showcase the full range of Laswell’s vast, seemingly all-encompassing musical vision. Breaks, funk, electronix and dub all filtered through music from India, the Middle East, Africa and Asia come together in these eleven dramatic pieces created for films. One of new music’s most prolific and versatile producer / performers, Bill Laswell has been creating music on a daily basis for well over twenty years and ‘Filmtracks 2000’ is one of his most varied and enjoyable works to date. A perfect introduction for the uninitiated. Guests include : Ginger Baker, Karl Berger, Aiyb Dieng, Tata Guiness, Graham Haynes, Jonas Hellborg, Robert Musso, Nicky Skopelitis, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Bernie Worrell, and Jah Wobble.
