Roots

Summer rolls on with another show filled with new dub. Although it came out late in 2010, tonight was the debut of Bill Laswell’s latest Method of Defiance album Jahbulon. Another great new release was the Digital Showcase from U-Rie and Neblina Sound. Also new tonight: Ghosts Outside from Steve Mason Dennis Bovell, plus new stuff from Bassnectar Seth Drake, Alpha Steppa, Grace Jones, Mista Majah P, Roots of Rebellion, and more… On top of this was half of a special Properly Chilled Mix done especially for Echo Beach (WLUW-FM, Chicago). Finally, Swiss introduced us to a fine Finnish outfit called The Valkyrians with their track Taikonaut Reggae, and added more cool tunes from Tsuyoshi Kawakami, Raw Vibes, The Dualers, and Burning Spear among others.
