Tonight Dr. StrangeDub and DJ Baby Swiss parked themselves at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach end of summer special. It was very different kind of Echo Chamber, as we ventured into some twangy, instrumental surf rock, cool old school RB, a variety of lounge sounds, world sounds, swanky jazz, weird electronic music, and movie soundtracks. Included in the middle of the show was a special mix straight from the TurnTableTerrorist at Echo Beach on WLUW-FM, Chicago.
Today during the first hour we listened to Aruna Sayeeram, one of South India’s most popular singers. This was a concert from the Indian Music Society of Minnesota’s archive. The concert was fron 24 May 2003 and was recorded, mixed and edited by Dan Rein.
The second hour began with Hot Gypsy music from the latest release by Romania’s Taraf de Haidouks (Crammed), that was follow by Khen music from Southern Laos by Molam Lao (Nimbus), and then music from Cholly, a Touareg musician from Algeria (Al Sur), and then Iran’s great Ney master(flute), Hassan Kassa’i (Kassa’i music), and then an Uzbek sufi text sung by the great Monajat Yultchieva (Ocora), then a bit of Irish music from the Brock McGuire Band, then music from locals, Dark Dark Dark (Blood Onion Records), and then a tune from the new release by Irish masters, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill (Green Linnet), and finishing with Cape Breton great, Jerry Holland (Odessy Records).
