Within a couple hours of the ball dropping in Times Square, Dr. StrangeDub & DJ Baby Swiss were ringing in the new year in a dubwise stylee… Starting things off with the best version of “Auld Lang Syne” ever: the “Auld Lang Syne/Slaves Lament” masterpiece from Ghetto Priest. Followed this with the reggae instrumental version from The Drastics, and then the wigged-out “cosmic” version from Eban Schletter. A couple more versions of “Auld Lang Syne” in the program, plus a few more seasonal tunes – including the great “What a Wonderful World” from Louis Armstrong (as remixed by the Orb), plus Dennis “Blackbeard” Bovell’s cool a capella version. But only going so far in the seasonal mode… We also filled the show with more great sounds from Dubblestandart (from the excellent “Woman in Dub” album), Gentleman’s Dub Club, Rootz Underground, Dub Gabriel ft. U-Roy, Josh Heinrichs & Friends, Serengety, Capital Letters, Lee Scratch Perry, Rico, E.R.S., Kukan Dub Lagan, Dub Architect/Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Ticklah, and much more…

Best of 2013 records local and non-local. Sean Anonymous and Phillip Morris (and Morris’s kids) joined during the 2nd hour to spin their new, and unreleased music, plus a few faves in advance of Sean Anon’s Birthday celebration performance at First Avenue on Saturday.
