Cruising in the middle of summer with a great mix of old and new, dubwise and otherwise. Kicked things of with the excellent 2009 release "From Far East" by Killa Sista from Japan (featuring Makiko, AKA Skunkin' Mau), followed by a track from Makiko (on the Vibronics' Scoops label). After this came the choice new "Guetto Roots of Dub - Vol. 1" album (on Dubophonic) from Negritage out of Argentina. And 3rd up from the UK was the "lost album" from Errol Bellot - recorded back in the 1980s and finally released by Reggae Archive Records with the title "Youthman - The Lost Album". Another highlight of tonight's show was the very cool new album Uncut by O. De Lanzac (on BBE Records), along with her Mixcloud mix called "Summer Breezin'". More new tunes in the mix from: Dubtonic Kru, Zion Dirty Sound, Fumitake Uchida, Dub Majestic & Bandulu Dub. To highlight 2 of the top artists at this year's Bayfront Reggae Fest (in Duluth, MN) we featured tracks from Everton Blender and Richie Spice; and to promote their upcoming gig in Minneapolis, we played some Meditations and our good friends Irie Sol. Finally, rounding out the show (and commemorating Roswell), the lineup included A Tribe Called Red, Raisa K, Dubagroova, AMJ Dub Collective, Omars Attacks, Jah Wobble & Deep Space, Little Tempo, Doctor Echo, Tommy McCook & the Supersonics (in dub), Sun Ra & the Intergalactic Solar Arkestra, and more...
