What a cool combination of musical wizards… Also making its debut tonight, Adrian Sherwood’s new Survival & Resistance (on ON-U Sound). Following these releases, was Steve Steppa’s cool “Zohar Inspired Dubplates”, and then the M.A.K.U. Sound System with their “Makumbala” album. More new releases from David Powell Experience, Dada Afrik & Kalcia, Rebelution, Marlon Asher & Stef Kalloo, John Brown’s Body, A Tribe Called Red, Fatoumata Diawara, Relaxo, and Byutifu! Also tonight, to celebrate the new “Easy Star’s Thrillah” album, we did a Motown/Detroit set, alternating tracks from “Thrillah” and I-Plant’s “BlackSoulRemix2” Motown mash-up album, and finishing with a cool cover of the Spinners “I’ll Be Around”.
