A very special show tonight as we featured part 1 of Around the World in 20+ Dubs (originally aired on Echo Beach on WLUW). Quite a heavy dubwise journey with TurnTableTerrorist Dr. StrangeDub. Additionally, the 1st hour included new releases from Sardinia Bass Legalize, Willie Nelson Marty Dread, and Hassle, plus a Dennis Brown tribute.
Tonight the Echo Chamber presented the annual “Word Beat I Powa” dub poetry, beat poetry, and spoken word special. Of course, it was dub poetry that set the foundation and included the dub poets Ras Takura, Jazz’min Tutum, Haji Mike, Mutabaruka, Jean Binta Breeze, Benjamin Zephaniah, Oku Onoura, and of course, the incomparable Linton Kwesi Johnson.
