4/10/2013 Echo Chamber


An unbelievable eclectic mix on tonight's program... But, first up was the incredible new release Re-Record Not Fade Away from Yesking. What a slinky, chilled musical trip with elements of trip-hop and hip-hop, and a solid dubwise foundation.  On top of this we dropped the dub bomb that is Alpha Steppa + Alpha & Omega -- with the excellent The Unrelenting Forcee of Dub Dynasty. And up 3rd on the bill, the brand new John Brown's Body album Kings and Queens (on Easy Star). Wow...and then more great new sounds from Yabass Yaba Radics, The Dubb Style, Addis Pablo & Suns of Dub, DubRaJah, Version Xcursion, Fanfara meets Transglobal Underground, Hotdrop, Caro Emerald, Banco de Gaia, Mutant Frogs, and Toots & the Maytals (from the "Ska Never Grow Old" EP).  Also, on the same night I had the pleasure of meeting (and interviewing) Mutabaruka, we played the powerful poem "Columbus Ghost". Finally, we rounded things out with Ras Takura & Royal African Soldiers, Big Youth, Eggblood (feat. e.g. bailey), Jimmy Cliff, Mikkim, Slimmah Sound, Twile, Kukan Dub Lagan, Madtone, Shiina Ringo & Saito Neko, Dave Brubeck Octet, and many more...
