Radio Antilles Playlist 8/22/08: Opening track of the show One Day from Australian band Blue King Brown’s got a hard kick to it. New stuff from Kasai Allstars / Kafuulu Balu / ongotraonics 3 / from Crammed (Belgium label) about 30 min into hour 1. The Slackers also got a new batch out with Everyday is Sunday / Self Medication /Indication record label 4 songs into the ska set at 15 min into hour 2. Also check out the sign off song – Sharon Jones and The Dap-kings /How Long Do I have to Wait For you ? / Sharon Jones and The Dap-kings / Daptone. Caught them live on Thur 8/21/08 at the MN State Fair and they played this tune. Pulled a guy out of the crowd to dance with Sharon on stage. Stood on a picnic table groovin and it was fun. 55 min into hour 2.
DJ Baby Swiss goes solo once again in the Echo Chamber. And, despite the fact that he arrived empty-handed (and had to rely on KFAI’s CD library), he cooked up a real fun ecelectic mix. Helping out the situation was the hand-delivered new King Tubby vs. The Assessor disc (Big Up Jeremy!). Loads of funn indeed.
Another great mix of old and new, from the yard to the club… Brand new tracks just in from Madtone:http://www.myspace.com/onedeckmadtone, Sista M:http://www.myspace.com/sistamparis, the Soul Merchants, Tom Drexl, Natacha Atlas, and even Paul Weller (yup, the modfather himself). Also in the mix, part 2 the “Roots Rock Reggae” guest mix from DJ Cojo of the Bushwackers Soundsystem, and a birthday mix for my daughter. A real fun summer show…
This show presents the debut of a brand new cd from Lee Scratch Perry’s song Fire (CD: Repentance Label: Narnack – go 10 min into hour 1). The Ska Set (beginning of hour 2) features a cool version of The Creator has a Master Plan from Joe Ferry (CD: Big Ska, Label: Shantytown).
