Another night of great new releases, some cool reggae oldies, some world sounds, and a few real eclectic items. Kicking off the fun with fresh new roots from Human Digital (on the “Doodad EP” from McPullish’s Charlie’s Records); Yabass Yaba Radics (featuring Michael Rose); Downtown Beat (from the album “Home” on LaFamille); Lord Hissayas (from Moshi Kamachi’s excellent Earth Strong Vol. 1 compilation on KingDub); Ras Bruno (with Culture Bown & Sista Caro) on Dan Dada Records; Jashwa Moses from his upcoming 12” release on Sugar Shack and Martin Zobel & Soulrise from the sublime “Land of the Free” album on Irie Vibrations (released June 2012). More new sounds from Black Roots, Signal Orange (from the clubby “Flugestunde Eins” compilation from the Libelle group/label), Ephraim Juda, Kabaka Pyramid, and Mystical Weapons (Sean Lennon’s latest project). In the great oldies department we had Laurel Aitken, Yabby You (aka Yabby U), Wayne Jarrett & Silver Fox, Pablo Gad, among others. World-wise sounds coming in from Souljazz Orchestra, Rupa & the April Fishes, Novalima, Beats Antique, Dub Colossus, and others. And in DJ Baby Swiss’ eclectix mix we found Emil Richards & the Microtonal Blues Band, Jah Wobble & Deep Space, Mutant Frogs, YMCK, and “Nashville Sputnik: The Deep South/Outer Space Productions of Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan”. How’s that for a variety of cool sounds?
