Roots

Tonight The Echo Chamber commemorated the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. – featuring the “I Have A Dream” speech as well as parts of the “A Knock At Midnight” sermon. Also tonight we celebrated the second inauguration of Barack Obama, and included the oath of office, plus bits from the inaugural address. But of course, it was the great music which fit the theme and really made the show… This included tracks like KnowledgeBorn07’s “Overcome”, Black Roots’ “Struggle Dub”, Keith Hudson’s “National Anthem (Dub)”, Daddy Roots’ “We Shall Overcome”, Human Digital’s “Trouble Ahead”, Dubkasm’s “Biblical Dub”, Louie Kulcha’s “How Long Dub”, “Oppressor Version” from The Steady Ups vs. Doctor Echo, Johnny Osbourne’s “Truth and Rights”, and tracks from the “MLK Dub” album on the Xterminator label. Also tonight, recent releases from Dubor & the Duborians, Yabass Yaba Radics, Sorian, Profit, Downtown Beat, Empresarios, Ras Bruno, and Sly & Robbie.
