Tonight the dub doctors hung out at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach end of summer special. A bit different kind of Echo Chamber — as we actually played some rock ‘n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock one expects to find at all great tiki bars. Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we put on some cool old school soul and R&B, and some really chill remix of Buddy Holly. We were really cookin’ now, and the Tiki Bar lounge was heavy with kali smoke…so we cooled things down with a variety of lounge sounds, world sounds, weird electronica, electro swing, and more swanky jazz. Among those on our crazy list of artists were: The Ventures, Dick Dale & Del-Tones, The Divine Sham, Panchasila, Bombay Monkey, Freddie Fresh, Buddy Holly/Jacques Renault, Omars Attacks/TurntableTerrorist, Propellerheads (ft. Shirley Bassey), 11 Acorn Lane, Thomas Blondet, All India Radio, Seven Dub, Little Dragon, The Specials, Towa Tei, Ondatropica, Eric Blowtorch & his Super Powers, Ska Cubano, John Taaroa & his Hawaiian Guitars, of course Martha & the Muffins, and many more…
