Opening today's show with sounds of Paris — with a bossa nova & a folk swing. Paris is also known for its links to African nations – so I go to a very recent release from Senegalese mbalax artist, Youssou N'dour. After an extended set from N'dour I play a brand new release from a French jazz combo covering some American classics. In recent weeks I have been playing vocalists from North Africa and continue with tracks from Souad Massi's first release; Massi is an Algerian ex-pat living in France.
Weather is what happens when Strangedub's making other plans… such as f'rinstance getting back into town from blizzard-stricken New York in time to do Echo Chamber! So leave it to d.j. babyswiss to pilot the entire 4-hour tour this week, launching into the Dubniverse from Dub Syndicate's "Precinct Of Sound" in order to do a little time traveling!
