September 2014 ECHO CHAMBER Archives

Tonight the dub doctors hung out at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach end of summer special. A bit different kind of Echo Chamber — as we actually played some rock ‘n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock one expects to find at all great tiki bars. Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we put on some cool old school soul and R&B, and some really chill remix of Buddy Holly. We were really cookin’ now, and the Tiki Bar lounge was heavy with kali smoke…so we cooled things down with a variety of lounge sounds, world sounds, weird electronica, electro swing, and more swanky jazz. Among those on our crazy list of artists were: The Ventures, Dick Dale & Del-Tones, The Divine Sham, Panchasila, Bombay Monkey, Freddie Fresh, Buddy Holly/Jacques Renault, Omars Attacks/TurntableTerrorist, Propellerheads (ft. Shirley Bassey), 11 Acorn Lane, Thomas Blondet, All India Radio, Seven Dub, Little Dragon, The Specials, Towa Tei, Ondatropica, Eric Blowtorch & his Super Powers, Ska Cubano, John Taaroa & his Hawaiian Guitars, of course Martha & the Muffins, and many more…

Tonight the long wait was over – with the debut of “Echo Chamber – Around the World in Dub – V. 5 & 6”, our 3rd dubwise compilation on Dan Dada records (available FREE on Bandcamp). From the new release we started the show with our pal Dubby Doo’s “.38 Special Dub” and Svaha Soundsystem’s “Destroyer of Worlds”. This was followed by Eclectic Roots Ensemble’s “Good Seeds” from the new “Best of Boom One Records vol. 1” album. And then came the brand new “Gold Dust” album from Earl 16 & Manasseh. More new music from Hayereyah (from the upcoming “Humility Before Honour” album); Second Sky (from the new “Touching The Surface” album on Rhythm & Culture); Yin Yang Audio; Bombay Monkey; and Bombay Royale (from the new “The Island of Dr. Electrico” on Hope Street). Finally, two more from the Echo Chamber – Around the World in Dub – V. 5 & 6 release: SXtheMadArtist with “Rainbow Off the Sky”, Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub with “Scientific Strut (Live)”, and GuiDub with “ Hills of Science”. On top of these new tracks we had a brand new mix from The Groove Thief (of which we played half) titled “Stepping Between Reggae & Dub vol. V”. On top of all this we filled the show with an eclectic mix that included Secret Panels vs. The Assessor, The Clash, Pizzicato 5, A.R. Rahman, The Heliocentrics, Little Dragon, Propellerheads, HIRIE, Vieux Farka Toure, Zvuloon Dub System, and more…
