U-Roy’s inherent sense of rhythmic playfulness and dub-scat lyrics aren‘t just the centerpiece of Love Trio’s album, but the very genesis of it: Ilhan Ersahin heard U-Roy, the dub riddim-rider champion and unquestioned king of DJs, as a child, and it shaped the bandleader’s entire musical future. Love Trio in Dub makes great use of U-Roy, but in a 21st-century, downtown New York setting, with Ersahin’s sterling synthesizer waves, Tom Waits aficionado Kenny Wolleson’s dubbed-out drums, and Brazilian Girls bassist Jesse Murphy’s backbone thump morphing into a Turntables on the Hudson-style, post-world-music vibe.
