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.
Tonight’s show was a dubwise worldwide trip — with the excellent Six Degrees Records as the featured label. The Six Degrees segments of the journey took us to India, Brazil, Iran, Spain, Algeria, and the U.K. The rest of the show took us to Sweden, France, Jamaica, and the good old U.S. of A.
Tonight’s show highlighted two excellent dub record labels: Jarring Effects from France and Tanty Records from the U.K. Between these 2 labels we filled an hour with 10 tons of dub. But the good doctors of dub were just getting started…
