Ambient-ish instrumental-ish dub recommendations needed!

I've been enjoying Bill Laswell's remix album Dreams Of Freedom (Ambient Translations Of Bob Marley In Dub) (link to discogs) and was wondering what you would recommend to someone who enjoys this kind of mostly instrumental (remix) chill dub. Feel free to include even obvious classics, since I'm pretty new to ambient-ish dub music. Thanks!

Dubber Side of the Moon

Bill Laswell collaborator Jah Wobble has dozens of albums, mostly in the instrumental dub vein.

Not remixes, but this is a favorite compilation of the genre from the 90s of mine and might give you a few new artists to look up.

Bill Laswell had his own podcast! Sacred Dub, 63 episodes of ambient dub goodness.

My favorite individual ambient dub album is Deepchord Presents Echospace, The Coldest Season. So so so so good.

Also check out the stuff on the DeepinDub label.

If I understand correctly, pretty much anything by Sly & Robbie might do it. I like Billie Jean.
