What a worldwide, World Cup kind of program tonight! With 3 tracks connected to South Africa (including one by the legendary Hugh Masekela), along with Russia’s ElectroDubCompany, some Chinese Dub (courtesy of his Wobble-ness), and Fat Freddy’s Drop from Australia, it was a heavy trip around the planet.
A bunch of new dubs tonight – including the Abassi All Stars’ latest “Ital Noiz”; the 12” release of “Chrome Optimism” from Dubblestandart/Subatomic Sound/David Lynch/Lee Scratch Perry; and a bunch of dub downloads from Kingdub.com, Dubark.com, and italiandubcommunity.com. On top of that we featured part 1 of the “In Love With Sound 3” from Aram Scaram / Citizen Sound.
Thank you to Jace Everett:http://www.jaceeverett.com for coming in so early with Dan Cohen, before their gig at the Cedar that night. We had fun talking about Nashville, the country music machine, collaborative songwriting, and—yes—a teeny tiny bit about that True Blood:http://www.hbo.com/true-blood theme song he wrote. If you missed him live, I highly recommend seeing him next chance you get! Check the playlist for more about what we heard this morning. Mike The Hook Deutsch, I miss you.
