The Making of Thriller (DBN125)
FROM THE DEPTHS OF DUB COMES THE CULTURE CLASH CLASSIC STEPPER, Adam Forkner, with his latest piece of hot wax [DBN125] White Rainbow – “The Making of Thriller” b/w Selector Dub Narcotic – “The Making of Star Wars.” WHITE RAINBOW/SGT FORKNER/DR PIZZA (aka Adam Forkner) should need no introductions to anyone who has paid attention to the Northwest underground over the last few years. Forkner’s involvement with K stems from his profound association with the label’s Chief of all Dubs and King of All Possible Echoes, Mr. Calvin Johnson. K has had the pleasure and privilege to release such classic Sgt Forkner blasts as Yume Bitsu's Auspicious Winds (KLP121) (2001) and Golden Vessyl of Sound (KLP137) (2002) LPs, as well as Forkner's first solo record of rare dub classics under the name [[[[VVRSSNN]]] (KLP145) (2003).
For the better part of the last decade, Forkner has been dedicating his creative juices to making his own brand of psychedelic, heady, dub inspired cacophony under the White Rainbow handle, while also maintaining a presence as a producer, engineer and guest instrumentalist with some of the biggest names in independent music (Dirty Projectors, Atlas Sound, Jackie-O Motherfucker, YACHT, Devendra Banhart, to name a few...) "The Making of Thriller" b/w "The Making of Star Wars" marks a home-coming of sorts, with Forkner returning to Dub Narcotic Studio to work with life-long friend and one time studio-mentor Calvin Johnson.
