 Bill Laswell - City of Light (vinyl LP)
Sub Rosa
Available for the first time ever on vinyl, one of Bill Laswell's masterpieces, the meditative ethno-ambient project inspired by the holy region of Banaras in India, in collaboration with Coil, Tetsu Inoue and Trilok Gurtu.
 Bill Laswell - Bass Terror (vinyl LP)
Sub Rosa
Limited edition of a recording confronting the virtuosity of two bassists: Bill Laswell's black trance track Bass Terror Tetragrammaton faces Nik Bullen's hypnotic composition Nocturnal Crawl. The two pieces answer each other strangely, like two sides of the same hidden anxiety.
