2/5/2014 Echo Chamber

 

Tonight we finally debuted the strangely cool "opera in dub" project from Uly E. Neuens, Aldubb, and many others titled "AudioArt presents Op'Ra Dub Style" (on Irie Ites label).  Also new tonight, the long-awaited collaboration of Masia One & Dubtonic Kru - the upcoming "Tuff Wong" release, plus Mighty Mystic's excellent "Concrete World" album.  More cool new sounds from Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate (from the album "Faya" on Cumbancha), Akasha Experience,  Chronixx, KBong, Vibration Lab, and others.  The good doctor also featured Third World's "Black, Gold, & Green" in memory of Bunny Rugs, who passed away this month.

After the half, Swiss followed up Dub Movement with another Brasilian outfit, OBMJ, before kicking in with a good teaser for the annual the Bob Marley birthday/King Tubby memorial special that usually airs the first week of February, with UB40’s take on “Soul Rebel” and Pauline Black turning in a wonderful “Sun Is Shining” from The Selecter’s 3-volume Trojan Songbook series. Derrick Harriott’s (also Feb. 6) birthday also got noticed. The calendar date is also shared by Perfume producer Yasutaka Nakata, hence yet more play for “Furikaeru to Iru Yo” and the haunting “23:30” For a closer, Jawaiian reggae artist Sean Na’auao drew us back to Marley with a short excerpt of “Three Little Birds” as Bobby McFerrin might have done it. Thanks to Morning Blender David Cummings for slipping up that tune; we owe him one. :>)
