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.
Thanks to Ghost in the Water and Mother Banjo for bringing us a local music double-header this morning! Ghost in the Water’s new one, Shooting Stars Battle Scars is a synth-dancier second release while retaining the lovely harmonies of their first album, Tooth. Mother Banjo commands the stage every Tuesday all month at the 331 Club, and brings notable friends such as The Minor Planets and Jon Rodine with her. Check the playlist for more hee-haw.
