A very special show tonight as we featured part 1 of Around the World in 20+ Dubs (originally aired on Echo Beach on WLUW). Quite a heavy dubwise journey with TurnTableTerrorist Dr. StrangeDub. Additionally, the 1st hour included new releases from Sardinia Bass Legalize, Willie Nelson Marty Dread, and Hassle, plus a Dennis Brown tribute.
Thanks to Joe and Ryan from In the Cinema:http://www.inthecinemamusic.com for coming in during the 8am hour to talk about making music under their current name, and as The Illness Project. We also heard new music from Tony Allen, Caribou, and The Slackers this morning.
Tonight the Echo Chamber presented the annual “Word Beat I Powa” dub poetry, beat poetry, and spoken word special. Of course, it was dub poetry that set the foundation and included the dub poets Ras Takura, Jazz’min Tutum, Haji Mike, Mutabaruka, Jean Binta Breeze, Benjamin Zephaniah, Oku Onoura, and of course, the incomparable Linton Kwesi Johnson.
New music this morning included Nice Nice, The Do, Trampled By Turtles and a sibling duo: Angus Julia Stone, who have one of the most beautiful websites for a music group that I have visited in my new music research.
