Eclectic

An unbelievable eclectic mix on tonight’s program… But, first up was the incredible new release Re-Record Not Fade Away from Yesking. What a slinky, chilled musical trip with elements of trip-hop and hip-hop, and a solid dubwise foundation. On top of this we dropped the dub bomb that is Alpha Steppa + Alpha & Omega — with the excellent The Unrelenting Force of Dub Dynasty. And up 3rd on the bill, the brand new John Brown’s Body album Kings and Queens (on Easy Star). Wow…and then more great new sounds from Yabass Yaba Radics, The Dubb Style, Addis Pablo & Suns of Dub, DubRaJah, Version Xcursion, Fanfara meets Transglobal Underground, Hotdrop, Caro Emerald, Banco de Gaia, Mutant Frogs, and Toots & the Maytals (from the “Ska Never Grow Old” EP). Also, on the same night I had the pleasure of meeting (and interviewing) Mutabaruka, we played the powerful poem “Columbus Ghost”.

This week we focus on locally produced audio theater, featuring works from Great Northern Audio, TekDiff, Precarious Audio Theater, Fearless Comedy Productions, and KOEH-FM. And we hope you will make a pledge of financial support to the show and to the station.

Kicking off April to the sweet sounds of the new Version Xcursion album “System Echo”. After a brief hiatus from deejaying and production, Sassa’le has put together a great downtempo release fusing the sounds of Bristol trip-hop, reggae, and dub. This was followed by some great new vibes from Polyphonic Dub Collective, The Dubb Style, Yabass Yaba Radics (dubs from the vault), Beat Inc., Black Job, Bryan Art, Banco de Gaia, McPullish (and friends), and our own Mutant Frogs. Celebrating Mayd Hubb’s recent “Mellowmoon” release with Joe Pilgrim, we played a 3 consecutive Mayd Hubb tracks from 3 different albums. And what a subsonic stew of cool music to fill out the show from the likes of Black Uhuru/Prince Jammy, All India Radio, Little Tempo, Toots & the Maytals, Dubor & the Duborians, Big Shiny, The Slits, Jean-Michel Jarre, Jackie Mittoo, BDLabs, Djosos Krost, and more…
