7/11/2007 Echo Chamber

 

New dubs and old dubs, an Echo Chamber/Echo Beach Double Mix, a Mix Within A Mix, the Left Hand of Dubness, and then there were the blueberries... Just another typical Echo Chamber.

The show kicked off with Left Hand of Dubness - a live recording featuring Eating Betty, Slimmah Sound, Dub Terrorist, Dr. Das, and Sweet Suzie from the I'mPULSE Clandestino Festival #5, Gothenburg, Sweden (June 2007). Many thanks to Mel for this exclusive recording. The middle hour of the show featured the Echo Chamber / Echo Beach Double Mix: besides airing live on KFAI, this hour mix will be aired on TurnTableTerrorist's Echo Beach on WLUW-FM in Chicago in early August. The mix started off with the extended version of Forever Version from the Dennis Alcapone album of the same name (newly re-issued in expanded form by _Heartbeat_). Next up were a couple versions of Blueberry Hill -- Yellowman's rendition that sounds very much like Fats D, and Jah Wobble's lo-fi electronic version (or versions really, as I overlapped the vocal instrumental mixes). For the next 20 or so minutes the doctor created the Mix Within A Mix...tangling together some Holger Czukay/Dr. Walker tracks (2 of which were recorded live at a show I attended in Minneapolis in '97) with Dub Gabriel's Second Coming of the Urban Mystic and Atlas Souls' L'amour En Banlieue (Love in the Suburbs). Finishing off the hour set intended for replay on the Beach were: Transglobal Undergound (w/ Natacha Atlas), Federico Aubele, Ras Myrhdak, Youssou N'Dour (covering Lennon's Jealous Guy), King Tubby, and the Ital Roots Players (with I Dream of Marijuana). Also on the show: Culture (from the Two Sevens Clash - 30th Anniversary Edition on _Shanachie_), The Drastics, Fedayi Pacha (from the new The 99 Names of Dub on _Hammerbass_), the new Kush Arora album, a rare Jackie Mittoo vocal track, Confucious (from New Zealand), brand-new tracks from Dr. Ring-Ding and Rebelation, plus Mutant Frogs and Marcia Griffiths. Wow...that was one full show.
