A highly experimental dub album that combines heavy reggae-influenced rhythms with Middle Eastern percussion, and the occasional striking female vocal (Honeychild). From Raz Mesinai, master dubber and percussionist, and one-half of Sub Dub. Bedouin Sound Clash was conceived and recorded in Raz's basement studio with a four track cassette recorder and a multivox echo chamber. Although the record utilizes a new style of dub, it preserves an organic feel with reggae rhythms, analog sounds, and Egyptian and Bedouin percussion.
Middle eastern sounds and classic dub fusion

"How can you not like a fusion of middle eastern drum sounds, hypnotic singing (Honey Child) and classic jamaican dub? My coworkers and i have ripped this and listen to it almost daily. When I first heard it, i thought maybe it was a Scientist or King Tubby record. But then i noticed how dense the beats were. The production sounded more modern, the bass heavy, the drumming ethereal in the mix. Sampled vocals come and go in the mix, lending this dub a hypnotic middle-eastern flavor that is really unique.i like, very much. If you dig dub, you'll dig this."
