Roots

So much new dub…so little time. Another boatload of new music: the fine new album from Junior Culture (Dan Dada Records); Bombay Dub Orchestra’s club-wise “The New York Remixes” (Six Degrees Records); Bomba Estereo’s cool new “Elegancia Tropical” (Soundway Records); Akasha’s sublime new Into the Web (on Dubmission); and more new material from Trevor “The Technician” McKenzie, Red Star Martyrs, Yeyo Perez/Puppashan, Dub Caravan, DU3normal, La Yegros, Bandulu Dub vs. Krusseldorf, Sorian, Addis Pablo, Suns of Dub, Phoniandflore, Jashwa Moses, and Bonobo. And that was just the first half of the show… DJ Baby Swiss was “Pourin’ Dubbles”, playing two-fers from greats like Desmond Dekker, Dean Fraser, the Skatalites, Aston “Familyman” Barrett, Tommy McCook, and Big Youth. And rounding things out we included Mayd Hubb, Infinite Third, Impact All Stars, Etana, Martin Zobel & Soulrise, Rebelution, Terakaft, i.rebel meets Dub Dragoon, Fedayi Pacha, David “Fathead” Newman, King Tubby/Jacob Miller, and more…

During the first hour Nora Rendall and Brian Miller were guest and performed Irish music on flute.
In second hour, cellist, Kirsten Whitson talked and perform two contemporary cello pieces.

   Our guest co-host today was Rene Baca, and he brought in some fine music and stories to share. This also concludes the Co-Host For A Day series on Good and Country for now. We may choose to bring back this feature again sometime. Many thanks to all who came forward and contributed their talents, music and stories during this community outreach effort in which listeners were co-hosts of the show. Much was learned from you indeed, and this has been a very entertaining, educational and enriching experience for me too.
