‘Downtown Rockers’ features Tom Tom Club’s characteristic upbeat fusion of electro and funk. The album was mixed by Ed Stasium, who also recorded and mixed Talking Heads ’77 and umpteen Ramones classics.
Known for timeless hits such as “Genius Of Love” and “Wordy Rappinghood”, Tom Tom Club was formed by Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, two of the three founding members of Talking Heads. “Genius of Love” has been sampled countless times, most notably by Mariah Carey , who hit #1 with her version “Fantasy,” but also Grandmaster Flash, Tupac Shakur, T.I. and the Black Eyed Peas. In 2002, Frantz and Weymouth were inducted at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Grammy-winning electric bassist, producer, and re-mixer Bill Laswell has worked with many of music’s biggest names on the planet, including Herbie Hancock, Laurie Anderson, George Clinton, Brian Eno, Tony Williams, Mick Jagger, Williams Burroughs, Afrika Bambaataa, Motorhead, John Lydon, Bootsy Collins, Carlos Santana, Matisyahu, Anthony Braxton, Sting, Zakir Hussein, John Zorn, and hundreds more from the Americas, Africa The Caribbean, Europe, The Middle East, China, and Japan. Laswell has built a reputation on consistently working with a diverse array of artists, and rejecting the restrictions of genre, tradition, and commerce in favor or taking risks and uniting seemingly disparate voices. It is with this ethos that he has formed the record label M.O.D. Technologies, which is set to release albums this October by the group Method of Defiance and one of Ethiopia’s most famous contemporary vocalists, Gigi. In addition, the label is planning releases from Dr. Israel, Gnawa Fusion, Afa Negus, and DJ Krush in the near future.
Method of Defiance is an all-star cast that consists of the following members:
BILL LASWELL (see collaborations above)
BERNIEWORRELL (Parliament Funkadelic, Talking Heads, Keith Richards)
DR. ISRAEL (Sublime, The Mad Professor, KillahPriest)
HAWK (Tricky, Tool, The Roots’ Black Thought)
DJKRUSH (Ronny Jordan, Luna Sea & Ryuichi Sakamoto)
TOSHINORI KONDO (Herbie Hancock, Derek Bailey, Henry Kaiser, Peter Brotzmann)

Method of Defiance will release three albums, first the immediately accessible Jahbulon (October 5th): Ten songs featuring vocalists Dr. Israel and Hawk, keyboardist / Funkadelic icon Bernie Worrell, legendary bassist/producer Bill Laswell, and post modern/futurist drummer, Guy Licata. A cross-generational affair that incorporates elements of reggae, hip hop, dancehall, dub, electronica, rock, roots music and more. The beauty lies within its ability to touch on multiple overlapping cultural reference points.
This will be followed (October 19th) by Incunabula a spontaneous improvisation of musical interaction. The album’s lineup includes Bill Laswell on bass and dub efx, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, Guy Licata on drums, Dr. Israel on dub efx, turntable master DJ Krushand on electric trumpet Japan’s own, sound and fury – Toshinori Kondo with a special appearance by keyboard legend Herbie Hancock.
