Jah Wobble and the Nippon Dub Ensemble: Japanese Dub (2010)

I saw Jah Wobble's collaboration project "Jah Wobble and the Nippon Dub Ensemble" while hungover, lying on warm dry grass underneath a baking sun at Glastonbury Festival last year.
So now I associate it with lazy late-afternoon Summer vibes. You don't have to.

Heavy bass and Japanese instrumentation with pretty chilled simple arrangements and some lovely sounds. JW's myspace page gives some compelling insight:
"The background to Japanese Dub is best explained by Wobble himself: ‘For some time I've fancied having a crack at merging Japanese music with dub." Profound.

Give it a listen:
