2/18/2009 Echo Chamber

Tonight the good doctors of dub presented a very cool special entitled Japan Loves Reggae. Of course we played a number of tracks from Dry Heavy, Mute Beat, Little Tempo, and Likkle Mai. But we also aired some new artists that have never been played on the Echo Chamber — like Mantis, Fishmans, Bagdad Cafe the Trench Town, and Dubsensemania. Also, for ambience we had a bit of traditional Japanese music (overlayed and for seques), clips from Godzilla, a theme song from the Hamtaro anime series, and a nice jingle from Likkle Mai herself. Konichiwa!
