What could be better than a bunch of new and old dub & roots…and a mix of rare Colombian music? The new stuff included Dubtonic Kru’s hard-hitting new “Evolution” album; Voodoo Dred’s cool “Racine” (on the Dub Temple netlabel); Jesse Royal’s new free In Comes the Small Axe mixtape release; Mista Majah P’s latest single; the excellent “Jumbie in the Jukebox” album from Kobo Town (on Cumbancha); and the fine “Samedi Sound System meets Science Project in Dub” (also on Dub Temple). More new sounds from Mykal Rose, E.R.S., Dub-I, The Prizefighters, and Dubrise. For the summer mix we went on a bit of a tangent and aired “A Mixtape of Rare Colombian Music” put together by DJ Mario Galeano to promote the film Esperando el Tsunami (produced by Vincent Moon & Lulacruza). Keeping things global we also aired The Garifuna Collective, Empresarios, and Ondatropica. More rootical sounds from the likes of Aldubb, King Tubby, The Lions, Augustus Pablo, Easy Star All Stars (ft. Horace Andy), Bandulu Dub, Eating Betty, Dr. Echo & Solange St. Croix, Little Tempo, and more…
