12/31/2008 Echo Chamber


Seeing another year out in rub-a-dub stylee... From Ghetto Priest's Auld Lang Syne/Slave's Lament versions (from the rare ON-U Sound single), to the brand new Inna Steppa Dub from Improvisators meet Iration Steppas, to the modern-meets-ancient sounds of Jah Wobble's new Chinese Dub album (on _30_ _Hertz_), it was quite an irie party. Also brand new this week we had the trancendental Summa Iru from Avatar (aka James Kennedy); the new Northern Faction 4 compilation (on _Balanced_); MDV with their new Ripple Effect (available from the MDV:http://www.myspace.com/1stylemdv MySpace page). Finally there was more great stuff from Bombay Dub Orchestra, Ky-Enie, Hotdrop, Little Tempo, Sista M, Court Jester's Crew, Dennis Bovell, Prince Fatty, and more...
