More new stuff from Carlton Livingston/Junglist Sounds, Noble Vibes, Suns of Dub x El Toro, Roots Controlla, Jennifer Paulos & Mystic Selekta, Cortex, Luz (ft. Mestre Liminha D’ogm), and Red Star Martyrs, plus the “Halloween at High Noon – Way of the Wicked” on High Noon. Also featured a couple of Peter Tosh tracks – celebrating his 69th birthday on October 19. Then Swiss came on and filled his set with 7” singles grabbed from YouTube (including tracks by Derrick Morgan & Johnny Clarke, Cornel Campbell, and John Holt), plus some obscure tracks from the likes of Jorge & the Landladies/Victor Rice, Seiko Oomori, Contratempo, Yann Tomita, and Ga-In. Certainly a unique mix tonight…
