TICKLAH VS. AXELROD is a reggae dub assault from Ticklah a.k.a. Victor Axelrod. You might know him from co-producing Dub Side of the Moon. Or as the keyboardist for Antibalas. Or from session work with Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, DJ Spinna and Robbie Williams. Or as a founding member of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. Even if you know him, you've never heard a record like this before. It features vocal contributions from Mikey General, Tamar-kali (Easy Star All-Stars), Mayra Vega, Vinia Mojica (best known for her work with De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest) and Rob Symeonn. Billboard called it "Reggae magic." World Music Central referred to its "Mind shattering dub excellence." And MP3.com called it "A potent combo of Jamaican and Latin rhythms." However you slice it, it is bound to become the soundtrack to your next party, chill out or love making session.
You can't top this as far as modern production goes. Ticklah paints a soundscape that is unique and confident, referencing the works before him without sounding like a retread.Published 15 months ago by D
Thank you Ticklah, not many people are putting out reggae like this anymore, and none of it sounds nearly as good as Ticklah's. Read morePublished on October 22, 2007 by Aaron P. Johnson

I bought this album because I'd heard Nature Dub on the radio (KEXP), thinking that this was a dub album. It's a mix of Dub, Roots Rock and Latin/Dub. Read morePublished on October 21, 2007 by R. Carr
