Celebrating and highlighting three excellent record labels and some of their recent releases tonight. First off, the new Dubophonic netlabel just released their 3rd album and it is excellent — Zion Dirty Sound’s “Fils d’Abraham”. From African and Middle-Eastern sounds, to Cumbia, Reggae, and of course Dub, this album has it all….and it flows so nicely. Secondly, we debuted the new “Foundation Come Again” by Dub Club on Stones Throw Records. Brand new recordings of original tracks by reggae legends Big Youth, Prince Jazzbo, Josey Wales, Dillinger, Trinity, Lone Ranger, and more, pulled together by the Dub Club team of Tom Chasteen & Tippa Lee. Finally, we shined a light on the cool Boom One Records and featured 5 tracks, including the latest “Naw Give Up” from the Boom One Sound System and featuring General Coldhand. On top of this, we included a righteous rootical mix from Brian UncleFee Blackharmony entitled “Bullwackies Reggae Goodies Vol 2”. And finally, we continued our travels in outer space…following up our “Lunar Lunatics” special from last week.
