Music

As usual, something for everybody in the Echo Chamber…starting off with a cool new dub from Ital Roots Players, followed by new music from The Angel, I.vette, Process Rebel, Juakali, Copia Doble Systema, Mahom, and Easy Star All Stars. As part of our summer mix series we included an excellent mix from Saetchmo called Short Trip Into Space and Back.

When Swiss took over in the 4:00 hour, listeners found out why It’s Fun To Listen To YMCK…and their cheesy-cute 8-bit video arcade chiptune/dancehall (“chiphall?”) riddim “Collect The Wind – Happy End”, kicking off a set that reintroduces the world to Grace Jones via her new “Hurricane/Hurricane Dub” dubble CD. Also in the set, new artist (to us) Diva, along with Rico, Tsuyoshi Kawakami and Dub Syndicate.

Just 24 hours ago, DJ Izzy returned from a solo road trip to Clear Lake, Iowa, where he saw Brian Wilson perform at the Surf Ballroom. A serendipitous pre-show meeting with his idol on the tour bus was a highlight of the trip, and inspired tonight’s show, which features music from members of Brian’s touring band, including the Wondermints, Falling Wallendas, Nelson Bragg and more.
