Mixing it up again…from classic Tubby dubs, to some heavy new dubstep sounds. New roots from Ragana (the 2010 A Long Delay Ago release); new roots dub from Pale Rider; the second collaboration from Jazz’min Tutum Madtone; and the new world-dubstep compilation Generation Bass Presents – Transnational Dubstep (Six Degrees).
Tonight the Echo Chamber proudly presented our annual “Tribute to Tuff Gong & Tubby” special. Three hours of great roots and dub from the masters Bob Marley and King Tubby (aka Osbourne Ruddock) and friends… Also, celebrated the February birthdays of Derrick Harriott and Lester Sterling.
A bit of Love…and plenty of Dub… Not some kind of mushy Valentine’s show, but heavy, sexy and deep. First up was the new Berlin Sessions EP with the old-school sound from Aldubb, Dubmatix, & Mighty Howard. Fitting our Love theme tonight groove-wise were: Prince Fatty, Elizabeth Archer & The Equators, Dubmatix, Richard & I, Lefthand (feat. JEN), The English Beat, Lisa Shaw, Third World, and more… Finally, DJ Baby Swiss chose the track “Finally Your Day Has Come” by The Dualers to dedicate to the people of the great country of Egypt!
DJ Baby Swiss goes solo…as Dr. StrangeDub overslept and missed the show. An amazing mix of old and new that was described by the dubmaster The Technician as “F#$%@#@ Great!” The big cheese for the night threw together some Skatalites at Tubby’s, Steve Turre, Voodeux, Otto von Schirach, Subatomic Sound System, Amadi featuring Bunny Rugs, and more, culminating in a John Brown’s Body track, Ghost Notes, going out to some newly-minted ghosts… victims of Col. Gaddafi’s war on his own population.
