Another program filled with many new releases, and a number of vintage numbers. In the brand new release department: Dub Dynasty’s excellent new “Thundering Mantis” album (on Steppas); Tony Dubshot’s cool experimental dub release “Deep” (on Dubbhism); the very cool “Purple Reggae” album from Radio Riddler – a reggae version of Prince’s “Purple Rain”; the newly released “lost” album from Willi Williams (titled “Unification – From Channel One to King Tubby’s” on Shanachie); the sublime “Equanimity” from Tricky D (aka Dean Bagar) on BBE; the hard hitting “Freedom Fighter” single from Dub Gabriel & Ranking Joe; the slinky, low key “Adrian Thaws” album from Tricky; the “The Best of Boom One Records vol. 1”; a new track titled “Lest We Forget (2014 Mix)” from Trevor The Technician McKenzie; plus a number of selections from the new “Echo Chamber – Around the World in Dub vol. 5 & 6” on Dan Dada. The vintage tracks included two from the “Version Dread” album on Heartbeat, a bit of The Clash’s “Sandinista”, one from Janet Kay, plus two from the late Hopeton Lewis who passed away earlier this month. Many more things filling out the mix including Secret Panels vs. The Assessor, Misled Convoy, The Robustos, The Dynamics, Kalya Scintilla, Perfume, Jah Wobble & PJ Higgins, Black Market Brass, Rude Rich & the High Notes, and many more…

Holistic Spiritual Healing – Suzanne Worthley

Feature PresentationRed Shift is a highly surreal audio experiment.  A polysci-fi religio-comic fantasy in five acts by Cat Simril, and presented to us from the Seem Real Theatre.  You'll find that it is impossible to follow, but that's not really the point, is it?  It's the journey, the language, and the questions, rather than the answers.  Performers include members of the Firesign Theatre, and cast from the Little City in Space and Shockwave, and many more.
