Another fun summer mix of old and new in the Echo Chamber. Kicked things off with the new and old at the same time: the new Pressure Sounds Mek It Run release comprised of new Dennis “Blackbeard” Bovell dubs of old tracks (some going back to the 70’s). More new material from: Richie Phoe, Pale Rider, Mystica Tribe, David Pablo, Mutant Frogs, Razia (from 2010), Yume_Noon, and Marvin Gaye vs. Give Thanks Records. On top of this, we played a chunk of Pete Cogle’s Dub Zone 5th Anniversary Mix as part of our summer mix series.
