Another amazingly eclectic Echo Chamber program… The featured artist was the dubmeister/mixmaster known as Tokyo Tower from Germany. Also in the mix were The Congos, Matisyahu, Bad Brains, GG All Stars, Michael Rose, Dr. Echo, and many more…
Tonight the Echo Chamber presented part 1 of the Mad Professor show – recorded live (by Turntable Terrorist) at Martyrs in Chicago last April. The other 2 hours of the program featured roots dub other bits…including a Quango:http://www.quango.com set.
No themes or live sets this week….just a bunch of great new dubs and reissued reggae gems. The highlighted artist for the show was Tokyo Tower from Germany. The vault reissues of the week include Sweet Talking from the Heptones, and Roots Man Dub from GG All Stars, both on Heartbeat Records.
Well…this was a special that I’ve been planning on revisiting for quite some time: A Fistful of Dub: A Dread Western Special. The Echo Chamber heads out to the wild, wild west… The two anchors of the show (and the two items that were the germ of the project) were Roots Control’s fantastic Dread Western album, and the Morricone soundtrack to the spaghetti western The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.
