Prior to that CD, he released Drums of Death, featuring Dave Lombardo of Slayer, Chuck D. of Public Enemy, Vernon Reid of Living Color, and Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto. His other recent albums include Optometry, a jazz project featuring Matthew Shipp, William Parker, Joe Mcphee, Carl Hancock Rux, Daniel Bernard Roumain, and High Priest; Dubtometry, featuring Lee “Scratch” Perry and Mad Professor; and Riddim Clash, a collaboration with Twilight Dub Sound System. He also recorded a two-CD megamix, Celestial Mechanix, featuring eleven DJ Spooky remixes.
