6/4/2014 ECHO CHAMBER

Some King Size Dub tonight… In fact, kicking off the show was the heavy new King Size Dub Special – Dubvisionist release in the King Size series from Echo Beach. Another great dub collection selected by Nicolai at Echo Beach – including a couple of Dubvisionist dubs, plus many of the dubs were remixed by Dubvisionist. Several other great new releases making their debut tonight: Citizen Sound’s Myrtle Forest Sessions (on Renegade Media); Quantic’s “Magnetica” (on Tru Thoughts); “Knowledge Shine Bright” from See-I (on Fort Knox); and Mad Codiuf’s “Militant Art of Dub” EP (on Maree Bass). Following on this we featured 3 great singles from Grant Phabao and the Paris DJs label – one featuring Lone Ranger, another with Carlton Livingston, and the last one a cool, low-down remix of Erykah Badu. Another highlight of the show was a 35-minute excerpt from a choice dubwise mix from Comando del Dub entitled Comando Del Dub Presenta Guerrilla Dub Vol I. Also in the mix tonight: Dr. Trippy, Yabass, Seb Taylor/Kaya Project, Twilight Circus meets DJ Spooky, Shandy, Will & Grruff, Bluetech, Kalya Scintilla, John Brown’s Body, The Dynamics, Looping Jaw Harp Orchestra, Señor Coconut, RSD ft.

6/18/2014 ECHO CHAMBER

Another night full of some great new music, and plenty of variety. Kicked things off with a taste of the new Dub Colossus “Addis to Omega” project – only the track we played “Boom Ka Boom (From Russia with Dub Mix)” is an alternate mix that is not on the album, but on the free EP that came with the album when bought through PledgeMusic. Next up was “Jah Jah Have No Colour” an excellent new single from Yeyo Perez & Bass Culture Players. More great new sounds from The Process ft. Lord Kimo (the hot new “Fire Is Burning” mixed by Scientist); The Dubbstyle meets Don Goliath (slated for release on the upcoming “Echo Chamber – Around the World in Dub – V.5 & 6”); Shandy, Will & Grruff (the cool “Island Time” album); Alborosie (from the excellent “Specialist presents Alborosie & Friends” double album); Stick Figure (from the choice new “Monterey or Bust” compilation on Rebel Sound); Kojo Neatness (from the rootical new “Reggae Street” on Tube Dub Sound); Black Slate (from the righteous new “World Citizenship” album); and the skankin’ mashup version of “Anarchy in the UK” from Dubmatix & Prince Blanco…and the Sex Pistols. More new sounds from Bruxism (an experimental new project from our friend Eggblood), Krease, Dubmatix, Quantic, Skeewiff, Mutant Frogs, Chris Toppa, Thomas Blondet, and Charel & Sanguebom
