Big night of new releases in the Echo Chamber! Kicked things into gear with the excellent Prince Fatty meets Nostalgia 77 album “In the Kingdom of Dub” (Tru Thoughts). This was followed by fine new releases from Etana (the “I Rise” album on VP), Pale Rider (the new extended version of “Post” labeled “Post +” on PDXINDUB), and The Dubbstyle with the heavy new single “Time”. The other big new release was the fantastic “Bass, Sweat & Tears/Dub, Sweat & Tears” 2CD package from Gaudi (Six Degrees). More new releases ranging from electronica, to R&B, to sultry trip-hop sounds, to roots & dub – by the likes of Do I Do, Serengety, AM444, Jeph1 & I-Mitri, Ce’cile, Groundation, Blue King Brown, Declan Kelly, JahYu, Dub Architect (remixing Bob Marley & Wailers), DJ Vadim, Bigote, and Dubmatix (ft. Anthony B). Added to this we featured the sounds of Milton Blake & Capleton, Jackie Edwards, Yellowman, Junior Brown, Secret Panels vs. The Assessor, Dennis Bovell /Janet Kay, Horace Andy, and more. In the middle of the program we played an excerpot from a recent Live mix fropm our friend Tokyo Tower. Heck, we even had mashup of Elvis Presley and The Wailers done by the great Errol “ET” Thompson. Quite a show!

Courtney Yasmineh joined during the 2nd hour, spinning from her new "Red Letter Day" album and a couple favorites and sharing stories of her life, music and inspiration, in celebration of the new release.
