Another dubwise journey…with a couple of side-trips. In the new dub & roots department we featured the excellent Black Symbol album “Journey” (on Sugar Shack); the explosive new “Real Steel” single from See-I (on Fort Knox); the conscious “Kushites – Big Way Different” from Scratchylus & Empress Reggae (and featuring Errol Dunkley); and a tasty new dub (.38 Special Dub) from our pal Doozer Dubby Doo. More new and recent rootical stuff from Greencross & OnDubGround, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Malasorti, Koncrete Roots, Sista Aude meets MatDTSound (from “Dub Tentacles – V.5” on Fresh Poulp), Dub Terminator & High Freequency, Bryan Art, and more. Our side-trips included the beautiful new Fado album “Quinto” (on World Village) from Antonio Zambujo, and back-to-back clubby beats from Beats Antique and Ill:esha (who were on the same bill last Halloween in Minneapolis). Also making its debut tonight was the just realeased “Fall – Remixes” from All India Radio and featuring the fantastic voice of Leona Gray.

In the second half, Swiss spent the whole two hours pouring dubbles as he likes to do from time to time, including 2 by the post-Marley Wailers (with the Wailers coming to town on 1/26).

Dreams of Tiffany Blue, Part 2, the conclusion, from ZBS. Jack Flanders in Belize, hearing a woman’s voice on a crystal radio, and she leads him into a dream temple.
