Eclectic

Kicked off tonight’s show with some hardcore porn… That is, we started with “Linda Love Dub” from Dubzilla’s “Dub Naturalis” album – which includes some graphic soundbytes from the movie “Deep Throat”. From there we moved into some choice new releases from: Apocalypse Dub Faction (“Jah Never Fail I” album on Dubkey); Alpha & Omega (“The Half That’s Never Been Told” on Steppas); Secret Archives of the Vatican (“Storytellers” on Broken Drum); Bass Defender; Masia One x Suns of Dub; Beats Antique; Dubmatix & Prince Blanco; Tasonia; Rara Avis; Dom La Nena (remixed by Joey Altruda); Ce’Cile (feat. JaRae); sUb_modU; The Skints; Don Goliath; Djemetta; and N-Tone Dub. Another new release was the cool “Blue Moon” compilation (compiled by Johnny Blue) on MikelaBella. Also tonight: Easy Star All Stars “The Great Gig in the Sky” with a cool radio-ID intro featuring Kirsty Rock; a nice long Jah Wobble set; plus tracks from Twilight Archive, The Mighty Diamonds, Rebelution, Phil Pratt, Yulduz, Shpongle, Linval Thompson, Rootsteppa, Caravan Palace, and more…

Tonight, as part of KFAI’s spring pledge drive, the Echo Chamber presented our annual “Free the Marijuana” special. It was a crazy kind of night….in a cloud of ganja smoke… Alright, OK…so there wasn’t really any ganja smoke in the studio (too bad), just plenty of ganja-inspired reggae and dub, with some great soundbytes from “Reefer Madness”. A special part of tonight’s program was the The Groove Thief’s “Stepping Between Reggae and Dub Vol. 4” ganja-filled mix (which we played most of).
