His latest CD - a compilation of classic reggage tracks - is In Fine Style, DJ Spooky Presents 50,000 Volts of Trojan Records!!!! Other recent releases are Drums of Death, with Dave Lombardo of Slayer and Chuck D. of Public Enemy; the groundbreaking Optometry (Thirsty Ear Records); and Millers award-winning book Rhythm Science (MIT Press).
