Tonight we debuted the excellent new Durban Chamber album from Dubsalon; some heavy Alpha Steppa dubplates; and a very cool new EP from Andreia Dacal (on Fresh Poulp). On top of this we featured The Dub Zone Mix #102 “4 Corners of Dub”, and highlighted some of the artists at the 2011 Bayfront Reggae and World Music Fest – including Nkulee Dube, Taj Weekes & Adowa, and Steel Pulse. Finally, in the final hour DJ Baby Swiss put together a fun all-Japan mix featuring: Tsuyoshi Kawakami & his Moodmakers, Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, Sugar Plant, Perfume, Mantis, Haruomi Hosono, Capsule, and Flare (a.k.a. Ken Ishii).
