2003 release. Previously licensed to the Asphodel label for North America, now only available on the original Burial Mix imprint. Since the early '90s, with projects on labels like Basic Channel, Maurizio (M Series) or Main Street Records, Berlin-based producer team Rhythm & Sound (Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald) have originated a style between electronic club music and dub/reggae long before it became a genre of its own and have since inspired and influenced several generations of producers. Their album Rhythm & Sound w/ The Artists on the Burial Mix label showcases the series of heavily reggae-oriented tunes that were created -- starting with the landmark "King In My Empire" with Cornel Campbell. This release features eight tunes, voiced in Berlin, New York and Jamaica by seven artists, some of them living legends; Cornel Campbell, Paul St. Hilaire, Shalom, The Chosen Brothers, Love Joy, Jennifer Lara and Jah Batta. Released simultaneously, The Versions (BMD 003CD) contains the corresponding instrumental versions with dubs that integrate minimal structures with Rhythm & Sound's breathtaking atmospheric density. An essential twin-release.
