Dub overload tonight… Brand new dub and roots from: Konkrete Roots (“Rudies in Dub” on Dubophonic); Mr. Lion (“Razberry Serrotonin EP” on Svaha Sound); Mystica Tribe (self-released “Lizard EP”); Don Goliath (“Calling On Jah” on Dubkey); and Echorek with the cool single “Dubber than Paradise”. Kicked off the show with a new track ripped from the headlines from Mad Professor & Vivian Jones – “Who Can Help Them?”, where “them” refers to the Palestinians in Gaza. Another highlight was a crucial dubwise mix from Dub Thomas from the Dubophonic netlabel. More new tunes from Pressure, ZionNoiz, Kojo Neatness, Talisman, Obatala Segundo (Mystica Tribe remix), Collie Buddz, and Panchasila. Filling the dubwise journey with more from YesKing, Augustus Pablo, Val Bennett, Shpongle, The Revolutionaries, Bad Brains, Dennis Bovell, Kalya Scintilla, and more…
