July 2014 ECHO CHAMBER Archives


Another week with great new releases, and a very cool mix from the Marée BASS netlabel. First up was the excellent new “Addis to Omega” album from Dub Colossus. I’ve been waiting awhile for this one – after being a part of the crowd-funding effort on PledgeMusic.com. Certainly worth the wait! This was followed by the great new Jah Wobble & PJ Higgins “Inspiration” album, and then the cool “Touched” remix album from International Observer (on Dubmission). Another cool new Dubmission release making its debut was “Tickling the Dragon’s Tail” from Misled Convoy – as part of Dubmission set. More great sounds from Dub Gideon (who were just in town with General Smiley), Adam Prescott, Deep Fried Dub, E.R.S., General Smiley & McPullish, Dubchek, Creation Rebel, Omars Attacks, Mad Professor/Sly & Robbie, Luciano, Dry & Heavy/King Jammy, Sub Dub, Prince Buster, and more, as d.j. babyswiss kicked off Space Month after the half.


In the second half, the Swissmeister continued our Space Month observances, starting with 60 Channels’ “Light Years On,” winding up with Mickey Hart Band’s “Falling Stars,” and filling the space inbetween (space, get it?) with Strange Constellations, an Alien Grandpa, an Interstellar Teakettle, and some (presumably Martian) Red Sand.

Tonight we headed to the moon…and off into space as part of our annual “Lunar Lunatics” special commemorating the first moon landing on July 20, 1969. The lunacy included moon and space related tracks like: “The Great Gig in the Sky” (from “Dub Side of the Moon”), “Walking on the Moon”, “Moonwalking”, “Bosporus Moon”, “Send em to Outa Space”, “Galactical Dub”, “Space Shuttle”, “Star Trek”, “Space-Time Paradox”, “A Bunch of Guys About to Turn Blue”, “Supernova at the End of the Universe”, and “Space & Time”. And what a far-out mix of artists tonight including Yabass & Yaba Radics, Easy Star All Stars, Vulcans, The Orb, Mystic Revealers, The Ullulators, Subatomic Sound System, DubXanne (backed by Okada), Sun Ra, Tom Dissevelt & Kid Baltan, Tassilli Players, and many more. Finally, part of tonight’s program included an excerpt from a mix titled “Short Trip Into Space and Back” by Saetchmo. Quite a trip…
