5/19/2010 Echo Chamber

 

A ton of heavy new dub...and other fun new things this week. The biggest, heaviest new dub arrived in the form of Dr. Echo's new dub album attributed to his former group The Defendants. To celebrate this release (which was a 10-year project), we did a sultry, extended Dr. Echo mix in the middle of the program. Also excellent new rootical vibes this week from The Manor, Kabir La Amlak, Winston Jarrett, Tony Dubshot, Citizen Sound (with the Rise Ashen remix of "Trouble"), and a number of artists on the new compilations "Italian Dub Community - Showcase Vol. 2" and "Revolutionary Dub Vibrations - Chap. 2". On top of this, smokin' new Chilean cumbia from Chico Trujillo on the new "Chico de Oro" (on Barbes); Janelle Monáe's very cool "The Archandroid" (on Wondaland/Bad Boy); and a swingin' jazz remix track from Nick Hollywood. Rounding things out with crucial cuts from: Eating Betty, Dennis Brown, Ernest Ranglin, TSPO, Burning Spear, and more...
