April 2018 Echo Chamber Archives

After the half, by way of wishing dubheads everywhere a happy 420 Day, Babyswiss launched into a massive ganja/weed/herb set that took in The Chosen Few, MagaDog, Fishbone, I-Roy, UB40, Winston Edwards,  Sly & Robbie, Mungo's Hi-Fi featuring Soom T, and more. LKJ's "Bass Culture" gets into the mix near the end…

In celebration of National Poetry Month, we presented the annual “WORD BEAT I POWA” dub poetry/poetry/spoken word special. The dub poets included Mutabaruka, Yasus Afari, Jazzmin Tutum, Jean Binta Breeze, Ras Takura, Desmond Faada Johnson, Haji Mike, Oku Onuora, Benjamin Zephaniah, and of course Linton Kwesi Johnson. In fact, we went back in the archives and pulled out Dr. StrangeDub’s interview of LKJ from 1999! More poetry, toasting, spoken word, and music from Jack Kerouac, e.g. bailey, Eggblood, U-Roy, I-Roy, Ken Nordine, Ancient Astronauts & Azeem, The Lone Ranger, Parliament, DJ Spooky, Sauter/Finegan Orchestra (ft. Ruth Yorke), The Last Poets, Jah Wobble, Lee Scratch Perry, Tatanka, and more.
