Blood Is Shining

Waveform

Dedicated to everyone from MLK and JFK to Ho Chi Minh and Yitzhak Rabin, Eastern Dub Tactik’s Blood Is Shining offers up a liberal smorgasbord of aural flavors. Somewhere across 125th St. and Madras, this CD feels like a hybrid between Bill Laswell and Fatboy Slim. Almost Big Beatish in its driving drums, Blood is an optimistic dance party that melds dub and hip-hop flavors with Middle Eastern and Indian vocals (with what sounds like a rap on “Five N Dub”). “Day Of Despair” gives us an odd Indian R&B/hip-hop soul that even the cross-cultural bandit, Apache Indian, would be proud of. Though not quite up to the same caliber as Apache or Talvin Singh, this is definitely an enjoyable East-Meets-West electronic extravaganza.
