Roots

Looking forward to a new year of dubwise music, Dr. StrangeDub did a 2012 retrospective in the first half of the show. First up was the choice new “On the Ground – Dub Version” album from Black Roots (on Sugar Shack), followed by Aldubb’s excellent “Welcome to Bassland” (on One-Drop). Then came two rootical new releases on Urban Tree: Simon Grohe’s “Rot EP” and Benjie’s “Gelobtes Land” album. Also new tonight: the cool new “Light like a Feather” single from Jesse Royal; the nice 2-CD “Marcia Griffiths and Friends” collection (on VP Records); the hot “Angle It EP” from Nappy Riddem (on Fort Knox); and SXtheMadArtist’s sublime “in HrZland” EP (released on Christmas day). Also in the 2012 retrospective were Pale Rider, Nneka, Kukan dub Lagan, Ras Sis Highness, Adrian Sherwood, Bandulu Dub, Quantic And His Combo Barbaro (feat. Alice Russell), The Breadwinners, Celt islam, and A Man Called PJ. Filling out the show with King Tubby, Tommy McCook & Aggrovators, Dread Daze, Blondub Sexy Sound, Kadubra (Earth-Ground Combination Remix), Benny Bennet & his Orchestra, Mouse on Mars, Mikus, AB2G, Dennis “Blackbeard” Bovell, Shiina Ringo, Jah Wobble & Deep Space, The Slits, and more…

Continued to celebrate my radio anniversary today….been on the air at KFAI for 19 years and played music today to reflect what I thought was my “BEST-EST” discovery after all this time….and that was the blues of the Ladies of Chicago…the ladies of Blue Chicago( and the men who accompany them in recording sessions and on the road). They work, live and are headquartered there in the Blues City and their music has become my inspiration and my joy for the last 19 years. See play list below
