Dry & Heavy features marvelous reggae and dub from Japan, so good it makes you wonder whether Lee "Scratch" Perry isn't pulling a joke--but it's real. The dub techniques recall both Perry and the late King Tubby with a '70s style, bass-heavy and springing into space. "Private Plan" sounds as if Krautrockers Can spent a night in a Jamaican studio--a fascinating sonic excursion. There's also plenty of strong roots reggae here with an interesting foray into the lovers' rock genre on "Love Explosion" (the "version" that follows could almost have been lifted from a Mad Professor disc). In other words, it's a summation of some roots styles from the last three decades, but with ample identity of its own. If you like Adrian Sherwood's On-U Sound productions, this is a natural choice for your collection. --Chris Nickson
