Another crazy installment of the Echo Chamber – filled with tons of new dubs, some classic roots, a tasty Latin set, and other fun bits. In the new dub and roots category were brand new tracks from Kanka (“Watch Your Step” album on Dubalistik), Bass Culture Players, Lali/Munky Lee, Relaxo meets The Technician (unreleased track), Afrokeys (unreleased track), Tony Dubshot & Jacky Ligon (from the “23” release on Dubbhism Deluxe). Red Star Martyrs (remixed by the Dubbstyle), Victor Essiet & the Mandators, and Tackhead (from the “For the Love of Money” album). The Latin tracks included a couple from Mexican Institute of Sound’s excellent “Politico” album, one from Arrebato Ensemble’s new “Absolucion” album, and two from the great self-titled release by Ondatropica. Also in the mix was the funky new “Curiosities” album from Lord Echo; the new “Redux” album of archived tracks from Keith & Tex; plus Sly & Robbie meet Mad Professor, Shigeto, UB40, Hot Rain, J Boog, Last Soul Descendents, Tokyo Jihen, Dub Majestic, and more…
