9/5/2012 Echo Chamber


Tonight we hung out at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach end of summer special. A bit different kind of Echo Chamber -- as we'll actually played some rock 'n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock one expects to find at all great tiki bars. Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we'll gott into some cool old school soul and R&B. We were really cookin' now, and the Tiki Bar lounge was heavy with kali smoke...so we cooled things down with a variety of lounge sounds, world sounds, weird electronica, and swanky jazz. Some deep Zen meditation followed the martinis and kali...as we aired part 2 of the In the Garden of Dub Mix I put together. This dubwise mix celebrates the pleasures of gardening, the roots of life, and the seasons of nature.  Among those on our crazy list of artists were: The Ventures, Dick Dale & Del-Tones, The Divine Sham, Freddie Fresh, The Challengers, Audiopharmacy, Propellerheads (ft. Shirley Bassey), The Hawaiian Guitar Boys, Booker T & the MGs, Omars Attacks (Turntable Terrorist Remix), 1000 Abstract Machines, Funk Dub Division, Astro Age Steel Orchestra, Haruomi Hosono, Diplomats of Solid Sound, Mutant Frogs, Joey Altruda, Laika & the Cosmonauts, Tipsy, Groove Corporation, The Peanuts, Don Ho (DJ Baby Swiss Remix), and many more...
