8/22/2007 Echo Chamber

 

Tonight Dr. StrangeDub and DJ Baby Swiss set up shop at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach dog days of summer special. It was a very different kind of Echo Chamber, as we actually played some rock 'n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock you are more likely to hear on Radio Rumpus Room.

Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we got into some cool old school soul and RB. Things were really cookin' now, and the Tiki Bar lounge was heavy with smoke. It was a good time to cool things down with a variety of lounge sounds, ultra-cool jazz, and some sultry Latin beats.

But don't think for minute that the dub doctors completely forgot our ska, dub and reggae foundation. And finally, this super-special bonus is reason enough to get yourself a copy of the show: our good pal TurnTableTerorist (who DJs a dub-heavy show called Echo Beach at WLUW in Chicago) put together a special half-hour mix just for this year's Echo Beach special.
