Live Instruments + Studio Wizardry

This is purely for the purposes of self interest and discovery. Some of my favourite music is the sweet spot where live instrumentation meets dubby studio wizardry. Nothing too dancey, just good home listening session music from anywhere around the world, I would consider Bill Laswell to be of the main proponents of this sound. Here’s some examples off the top of my head to give you an idea:

For an experiment, I tried pasting this into ChatGPT to see what it would come up with… Thievery Corporation, K&D, Bonobo and Nighmares on Wax :expressionless:. Can you recommend some better stuff than this to keep me busy please?


Have you listened to Holy Tongue and Devon Rexi, i like their stuff. More obvious but essential is African Head Charge and other On-U Sound stuff.
