TICKLAH VS. AXELROD is an epic soundclash between two sides of a musical personality: the studio wizardry and dub experimentation of Ticklah vs. the keyboard prowess and genre restlessness of Victor Axelrod. In this case, the battle rages in the head of one person: Ticklah and Victor Axelrod are one and the same person. You might know him from co-producing Dub Side of the Moon. Or as the keyboardist for Antibalas. Or as a founding member of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. Even if you know him, you've never heard a record like this before.
You can now order this latest dub-infused Easy Star release.
This is the third full-length solo album from Ticklah/Victor Axelrod. The album features guest vocals by reggae stars Mickey General and Rob Symeonn, Tamar-kali (of Easy Star All-Stars and the documentary film Afro-Punk), Mayra Vega and Vinia Mojica (best known for her work with De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest). Instrumental contributions come from Victor Rice, along with members of Antibalas, Easy Star All-Stars and Dub Is A Weapon.
