Jamaican riddims and snakelike Arabic melodies, performed by an Anglo ex-pat residing in the Netherlands - now that's world beat. Ryan Moore's Other Worlds of Dub opens with a hollow clatter of rock-steady drums and a woozy lick that sounds like a trombone. It soon becomes apparent that the brass is actually a manipulated human voice wailing on a centries-old, open-throated theme. The remarkable fluidity of this transition makes a statement or two about the durability and timelessness of head music, of which Other Worlds is a stellar example. According to Moore's spare liner notes, his drums were recorded during a two month period in Vancouver, while all overdubs were added during a second recording session in the Netherlands. Like the best dubwise records, these echoey drums provide rhythm enough to carry the whole project; on top, Moore's sythetic blips, gurgles and washes add color like sunbursts on the back of eyelids. Traditional reggae instruments and ideas share space as well: 'Indian' for instance, features a borrowed bass riff from Bob Marley's 'Night Shift' off Rastaman Vibration. Not a bad place to look for ispiration.
