ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Miasma is another chapter of dub/ambient from the mind of the Viking(Robbin J Harris). Live instrumentation, live vibes. Spans from modern sounds to vintage Skatalite dubs featuring Mark Henderson and Miles Li on horns. Also on a few tracks here is the superb vocalist Marcia Seebaran (who incidentally also provided the cover photos). Ken Rose guests on one track playing guitar as does Joel Deerwester for one track on trumpet.Compared in many reviews to Twilight Circus and Bill Laswell these tracks are mostly on the mellow side of things.Big bottom and bass make it warm and cushy, especially on a dub sound system.
Enjoy!
Dub The Planet!

review from a publication in france
Une production Dub assez inhabituelle puisqu'elle plonge l'auditeur dans une atmosphère fortement chargée d'influences Jazz notamment au son et jeu de batterie dès le premier morceau "Eternal", et la tendance se confirme avec la batterie et la trompette de "Sun Dub".
Pour "Gaze", une choriste est invitée, Marcia Seebaran, pour poser sa voix sur une instru toujours Jazz-Ambient. Un virage s'amorce à partir de "Lazy Monday" mais pas vers du Dub « traditionnel », on arrive pratiquement à un morceau Acid Jazz.
Et tout le reste de l'album suit la même direction: plutôt Jazz que vraiment Dub, mais très agréable quand même, bonne ambiance musicale

The Viking music takes you in a place in the universe where each instrument takes it's own natural place,you just float with the flow.A fantastic trip for those who are not afraid to fly high,very high.I just loved the experience.

The Viking is up to his old tricks again!!!
Good singing, killer horn parts and unbelievable percussion. Tracks 10 and 11 are my all time favorites. Bad ass grooves!
I suggest that you buy this one, it grows on me more each time I listen to it.

Nice work Robbin! Huge respect!!!

This is a great CD, for background or critical listening.
It seems every song is a musical story and has depth and purpose to what is going on in it. Many transitions that I would think are hard to play but were done smoothly and almost unnoticed in some cases. The horns and sax are great and the guitar as well. The drums are spectacular. This is a nice critical listening CD. You really want to listening to what is happening. Great work of art and relaxing.

Miasma is the real thing. Sit in a dark room and smoke a fatty
The Viking has done it again. Miasma is flawless. The grooves are as heavy as hell. Each song melt into the next like butter. This is real dub! This music will make you want to sit in a dark room and smoke a fat blunt. :)

To fly away (literally)
"Miasma" is like a trip into ambient spheres, chill out, relaxing in the evening after a hard day at work. It's a live played album and reminds from time to time to some Bill Lasweel experiments in the outer rim territory of dub.
People who like jazz music will be very satisfied with this album. Dub-jazz may be a good description of this music. I would associate a chilly garden party with colourful cocktails and people relaxing in a swimming pool. And above this scenery, the calling trumpets from a distant, possibly a grass-hill behind the fence, a lonely guitar player in the corner of a garden, improvising to the beats provided by a poshy DJ who tries to impress the bikini girls (who laugh at him but secretly feel flattered nethertheless).
Like this the party continues until late night without any remarkable incidents. The people leave in their Jaguars and Porsches and next day they forgot that they were on a party at all.
