9/10/2008 Echo Chamber


Roots, roots, roots... After a couple of weeks of surfin' and loungin' at the tiki bar, the doctors of dub returned to the heavy roots and dub that are the foundation of the Echo Chamber. From the Aggrovators' Johhny In The Echo Chamber album, to the Ital Roots Players' I Dream of Marijuana, the night was a dubbers delight. From the ultra-cool new label Burning Bowl we featured several tracks on the excellent Musik for Film compilation. Other new material included the fine ...if you like music CD by the Soul Merchants (Stubborn Records); the rootical Mind of the Icktionary album by V.I. native Ickarus; and a new extended dub version of Black Knight from The Technician. Rounding out the roots were: Black Ark Crew, Irish Moss, the Wailers, Dub Spencer Trance Hill, Chinna Smith, Dennis Brown, Twinkle Bros., Corey Harris, Lee Perry, Emo, Dub Syndicate, Augustus Pablo, Sly Robbie, I Roy, Clive Hunt, and more...
