Tonight the Echo Chamber presented part 1 of “Around the World in 20+ Dubs”, the 6th annual special which originally aired on Echo Beach on 4/27 (WLUW-FM, Chicago). Once again Dr. StrangeDub joined the TurnTableTerrorist (Terry C) for the dubwise journey. But, before embarking on ATWD #6, the good doctor filled the first hour with some excellent new releases from Citizen Sound, Thousand Yard Prayer, Bandulu Dub, DuBoLoGy, Nazarenes, Dub Rifles, the ACEtone Studio “Eat Cookie Dub” mix of Love Avalanche’s “More Love Less Corruption” track, and the official re-release of “Riddim Full A Culture” compilation from Springline Records (in association with the Dubark.com community web site). Also in the mix: 10 Ft. Ganja Plant, Scientist, Taj Weekes & Adowa, the neyBuzz, Dubmatix, Winston Heywood, and more… Finally, in memory of the late Lloyd Brevett, we included a couple Skatalites tracks.
Saltee joined Spin with Cyn debuting their new EP, CrossPolyNation and talking about their inventive collaborative music. During the last half hour, members of the Japhies stopped in to talk about their new Rockethub campaign.
Enjoy the 2nd half of “Tortoise and the Minenapolis Jazz All Stars,” a live broadcast from the Walker Art Center, Friday May 4. The concert ran from approximately 8:00pm to 9:20pm. Also, don’t miss the last 20 minutes of this archive – Ron Gerber’s “Smooth Jazzatude.” It’s terrific!
