2/18/2009 Echo Chamber

 

Tonight the good doctors of dub presented a very cool special entitled Japan Loves Reggae. Of course we played a number of tracks from Dry Heavy, Mute Beat, Little Tempo, and Likkle Mai. But we also included a lot of artists that have never been played on the Echo Chamber including: Mantis, Fishmans, Bagdad Cafe the Trench Town, Keyco, lecca, and Dubsensemania. Adding to the list we played: Audio Active, Blue Beat Players, The Determinations, The Miceteeth, Shiina Ringo, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Riddimates, Channel U, Chimp Beams, Kodo, and Kazufumi Kodama (from Mute Beat). Also, for ambience we had a bit of traditional Japanese music (overlayed and for seques), clips from Godzilla, a theme song from the Hamtaro anime series, a couple clips from the Milk Chan anime series, and a nice jingle from Likkle Mai herself. Konichiwa!

Many thanks to Mantis, Masa, Amanda, and Likkle Mai for their personal help in putting this special together. Also, Big Up to all the artists for the great Japanese reggae and dub music!
