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, but we had many other rhymesayers — from Jamaican DJs, to beat poets, and hip hop artists.
New music from Pet Shop Boys (who happened to be releasing a new album the same day as a new Depeche Mode album), William Fitzsimmons, Glenn Tilbrook and Extra Golden. You must love Extra Golden! Kenyan traditional rhythms meet western rock n roll. Big thanks to Johnny, ST and listener-members for support throughout the drive and on this second pledge edition of PWB.
After two weeks off, Dr. StrangeDub was back in the driver’s seat… And the good doctor came with a bag full of new stuff: the new Dub Tentacles compilation on Fresh Poulp; the Hi-Fi Hustlers’ Blagging It EP; and the new Remembering Machine from Secret Archives of the Vatican topped the list.
