What better way to kick off summer than a cool new album from Mykal Rose (aka Michael Rose) – and one that contains some real cool Ethiopian jazz elements! That would be “Showdown Inna Bloody Town” on Foreign Key Records. Followed this up with some really nice new sounds from Alois Huber & Oh Gee (two different new 10” releases on Dubonwax), Dub Club (Tom Chasteen & Tippa Lee), Madness, Patko, Red Barrio, Dubzoic (remixing Alpha & Omega), Dub One!, Red Star Martyrs, Morning Sun & Essentials, Dubtrak, Los Transatlanticos, Dubmatix (feat. U-Roy & Cornell Campbell), Longman, Mutant Frogs, and Prism. Another highlight tonight was The Groove Thief’s mix “Free Dubs: Nox” (available on Mixcloud) which featured Linton Kwesi Johnson, Injham, earlyW~Rm, Dubmatix, Negritage, Reggae Roast ands more. Rounding out the program were The Drastics, Dr. Echo & Solange St. Croix, Jazzmin Tutum, Steve Turre, Jazzmin Tutum, Babilonci, Weather Report, Banco de Gaia, The Upsetters Dub Campaign, and more…
