Eclectic

With DJ Baby Swiss out of town on a gig, Dr. StrangeDub went solo for 4 hours of dubwise fun. And it sure was fun to debut the new Echo Chamber – Around the World in Dub – Vol. 3 & 4 compilation album tonight! For the summer mix the doctor pulled out a great mix from 2011 put together by Eating Betty (our friend Mel) for Echo Beach (WLUW-FM, Chicago). On top of this we aired great new tunes from Dubagroova, Rocker-T, The Breadwinners (ft. Stally), Tricky, Masia One, The Fellow Traveller, Dubtonic Kru, Chucho Valdes & the Afro-Cuban Messengers, Robert Ziino, Blue King Brown, Mykal Rose, Science Project, Dax Lion, Byutifu!, Queendigo Placid Jazz, Dub-I/Fire Salad, Patko, Kobo Town, and Vieux Farka Toure! More great dubs and such from: Dubor & the Duborians, Clement Weda, Dub Specialist, Sly & The Revolutionaries, Scientist, Citizen Sound, Longman, Big Shiny, Dubsalon ft. Razaman, Third World Allstars, and may more. To get your free digital download of “Echo Chamber – Around the World in Dub – Vol. 3 & 4” on Dan Dada Records (Thanks Bruno!), as well as Vol, 1 & 2, come here.

From the Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater comes Some People Are Missing on Canal Street, by Steven Oney. A desperate voice on the radio, with a horrifying and unbelievable tale to tell.

What could be better than a bunch of new and old dub & roots…and a mix of rare Colombian music?

More new sounds from Mykal Rose, E.R.S., Dub-I, The Prizefighters, and Dubrise. For the summer mix we went on a bit of a tangent and aired “A Mixtape of Rare Colombian Music” put together by DJ Mario Galeano to promote the film Esperando el Tsunami (produced by Vincent Moon & Lulacruza).
