Summertime…and the dubbing is easy… Tonight we celebrated 12 years inna Echo Chamber. From Loudspeaker Speaker meets Clearly Human, to Sub Swara, the Technician, DubXanne (featuring Jazz’min), Babylon Circus, Eva Be, Soldier Red, Clive Hunt, and many more. Topping this off we featured a segment of Dub Rogue’s Dub Mash radio program (from Oi FM in Finland).
We heard new music about baseball (Steve Wynn’s the baseball Project), new music that’s really ten years old (Archie Fisher’s new album, a decade in the making), and we recovered from the Deep Blues Festival. Folk, to Scottish, to dirty dirty blues. See the rest of the ride…
First off, an hour of new dub roots from Mista Majah P;Dub In a Nutshell; Loudspeaker Speaker meets Clearly Human; Burning Babylon; and more. Next up: a special hour-long mix from Llwybr Llaethog put together especially for Echo Beach (at WLUW, Chicago). And in the final hour: another cool, eclectix mix from DJ Baby Swiss.
Diane and Allan brought A Hawk and a Hacksaw, Tres Chicas, and played Forro in the Dark…just some of the artists they saw up in Winnepeg. We also heard new music from Eliza Gilkyson, the Hold Steady, and another creative project from half of Roma di Luna: Crescent Moon is in Big Trouble—a pre-cursor to the show Saturday at the Nomad West Bank Music Festival…and the return of Traditional Methods!
