Rhythm Killers is an album by Jamaican musical duo Sly and Robbie. It was released in May 1987 by Island Records. By the time of the album's recording, Sly and Robbie had transitioned away from their prolific work in the reggae genre. They spent the 1980s experimenting with electronic sounds and contemporary recording technology on international, cross-genre endeavors, as reflected by Rhythm Killers. For the album, they enlisted record producer Bill Laswell and an ensemble of musicians to work with at. Sly & Robbie have always been one of the most progressive production outfits to emerge from the reggae world, so a crossover collection such as this should be no surprise. The only problem is that it's not really what one might have hoped for. Aiming at the R&B sector, the drum'n'bass tandem team up with Bill Laswell to funk it up Taxi Gang-style with all the requisite synth drums and rockin' guitar solos. Rhythm Killers, 1990.
