Method of Defiance is Bill Laswell, Bernie Worrell, Dr. Israel, Hawk, DJRush, Toshinori Kondo and Guy Licata. Pretty top notch group of music types no? They have, collectively, worked with everyone from Tool to The Roots, from Laurie Anderson to Herbie Hancock, Tricky and Massive Attack.
The group was formed by Laswell, who always seems to be doing something interesting be it as a bassist, re-mixer, producer etc. I check out anything he has a hand in. I don’t always love it..but it is never boring.
Method of Defiance’s second record, Incunabula, comes out November 6th. A track by the band is above for your perusal. In April, 2011, the band will be releasing a remix project, Dub Arcanum Arcandrum.
