Eclectic

Quite a mix of new and old for the 2nd show of 2014… Kicking off with yet another new Dubophonic Records release – the excellent “Dub Ina Midlands” from Koncrete Roots. Two new choice releases from Dubmission also making their debut tonight: the cool “Dream Before You Sleep” EP from Quanta, and the sublimely beautiful “Maya” album from the Holiwater Band. More new material from Vibration Lab (on Reggae Roast), Tour de Force (on Dub-Stuy), Riverside Rockers (on Boom One), Norris Man (on Fox Fuse), Shunya, Jesse Royal, Doozer Dubby Doo, Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub (recorded Live), and Kasm meets Seed Organization. The doctor also roped in some Dub Caravan, Dengue Dengue Dengue, John Brown’s Body, J Boog, Winston Edwards, and a nice chunk of Chicago Afrobeat Project (who played in Minneapolis on 1/11).

When Swiss took over in the middle, he bookended the second half with a couple of fine, chill Perfume tracks, one from their still fairly-new full-length Level 3, “Furikaeru to Iru Yo” and the earlier ’09 ‘b’-side “23:30” we’ve heard here before. Grooves by the likes of 60 Channels, Nitin Sawhney, Jon Hassell, Terminal Cheesecake, Jah Wobble and UB40 peppered the inbetween.

1st hour Manchester Social Club’s Nate Beck stopped in to spin new songs and give away tix to his Sunday show. 2nd hour, Spirits of the Red City members Jason Overby and Will Garrison shared road stories and spun songs from Jula, and music that inspires them!

Beginning the story, Dreams of Tiffany Blue, from ZBS. A new Jack Flanders story with Jack and Mojo visiting Belize, and a bar owner who has a blue crystal stone.

Episode #439: “In EZ-Listening parlance, ‘Venga’ means ‘I need a shower while this flutey guy is playing’.”

Buried Treasure

DJs Miguel Vargas and Veronica Ochoa welcome in 2014 by saying RIP 2013, and to all the musical stars who passed on during the previous year.

Time to get new calendars, cherish the old and welcome the unknown ! Happy New Year — to all, yet it was dampened by a large fire on the West Bank burning up Cedar Ave. during the program.
