Another solo trip in the Echo Chamber for DJ Baby Swiss… A great mix of dubwise stuff from the likes of LKJ, Matumbi, Volfoniq, Dub Club, Jamaica Super Dub, Channel U, Eating Betty, and Little Tempo. Also on the show, a Rocker T track featuring Joan Baez; a birthday tribute to the Peanuts; and jazz from Miles Davis and Ken Nordine. One very cool mix!
