Another fun summer mix of old and new in the Echo Chamber. Kicked things off with the new and old at the same time: the new Pressure Sounds Mek It Run release comprised of new Dennis “Blackbeard” Bovell dubs of old tracks (some going back to the 70’s). More new material from: Richie Phoe, Pale Rider, Mystica Tribe, David Pablo, Mutant Frogs, Razia (from 2010), Yume_Noon, and Marvin Gaye vs. Give Thanks Records. On top of this, we played a chunk of Pete Cogle’s Dub Zone 5th Anniversary Mix as part of our summer mix series.
Trans Mars Tango – by Elaine Lee. Trans-gender detective on Mars, with lots of action, humor and plot twists. Recorded live at the National Audio Theatre Festivals in 2011.
and Twin Engines – from Ziplow’s Sci-Fi Trilogy. Actual engines, corporate corruption, and good fun.
On tonight’s program it’s All Command – All the time! That’s right, you heard that correctly in both the right channel and in the left channel. Tonight on Jet Set Planet we feature all vinyl from the Command Records library! Every single record in on COMMAND. If you ever needed to balance your stereo speakers while drinking bourbon hi-balls and while digging that BONGO beat, tonight is your night!
DJ Miguel Vargas will be taking the night off to catch FELA at the Ordway, so for tonight’s episode of Radio Pocho, the fellas from LatinoAltROCK are going to bring an awesome show, as usual. You’ve heard them on KFAI’s Radio Antilles and on the Current, and have been an excellent source in showcasing the many contemporary musical direcciones y estilos de nuestra gente.
Latin beginnings with highlight of upcoming show Fri. 6/15 at the Dakota with Ceu’ & Curumin. Another feature of Fela in the second hour – in celebration of the Broadway visit of “FELA !” at the Ordway this week !
