Many producers have attempted to mesh Delta blues with dub beats, usually with little success. Too often, the results rely on a drab timidity from one side or the other-no grit in their blues or ghost in their dub. On Dust My Broom, German electronic spliff rollers Boozoo Bajou create a rare balance: they find the dub in Sonny Boy Williamson and create post-modern classics with help from toaster U-Brown and soul legend Willie Hutch. As an experiment, Dust My Broom is an unmitigated success; as an album, it‘s a late-night classic.
