Eclectic

Got things kicking tonight with the cumbia-dub-electronica-club sounds of Piper Street Sound and their very cool “Cumbia de la Piedmont” release on Boom One, and did a cumbia-based set a bit later in the program. Also new tonight: Addis Pablo (son of Augustus Pablo) and the Suns of Dub productions; the new album “Free Your Soul” by the Banyans; plus new tracks from OnlyJoe, Freddie McGregor, Moshi Kamachi , Ramon Judah & Conscious Sound (with RSD), Ammoye, Wise Rockers, Justin DeHart, Akasha, DU3normal, Blaminack/Manwel T, Yabass Yabba Radics, and ZionNoiz. The modern cumbia set included fresh music from Piper St. Sound, Rafael Aragon, Kuto Selektah Quilla, and Ondatropica. More great dubwise & otherwise tracks on the eve of Valentine’s Day from Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra (ft. Megumi Mashiro), SOJA, Bob Marley/Dubmatix, Prince Fatty, The Specials, John Holt, Mutant Frogs, The Dreamlets, Dry and Heavy, and more…

Five Fathom Rip, a tale of terror on board a fishing boat, during a storm off the east coast of the U.S. Sound effects are the real thing, too.

Episode #392 – Glen Returns to the Cockpit and guides the Jet to an EASY landing.

Red Baraat, Mardi Gras, a visit with Paul Collins, and a wallop of female-empowered power pop.

New releases from Meklit Hadero, in town at the Cedar, and from Rupa & the April Fishes, both from San Francisco. A preview of Red Baraat coming to the Cedar late in Feb. and some Cajun & Zydeco music – just for good measure !

On February 6, 1945 Robert Nesta Marley was born in the small village of Nine Mile in Jamaica. Forty-four years later, on February 6, 1989 the great dubmaster King Tubby was senselessly murdered in Kingston. One man had become a legend the world round. The other was a legend in the reggae world, and a permanent influence upon recording studio techniques and technology.

Tonight the Echo Chamber proudly presented our annual “Tribute to Tuff Gong & Tubby” special. Four hours of great roots and dub from the masters Bob Marley and King Tubby, and many friends… From dubs to remixes, and cover versions and tribute songs, we had quite a mix of great music. So, in addition to songs from Bob Marley & the Wailers, and dubs produced by King Tubby, we featured: Tack>>Head, Dub Terminator, CeU, Prince Wadada, Youssou N’Dour, Yes King, Neon Black, Marissa Lindsay, Hepcat, Lone Ranger, Rita Marley, Chin Dub, Judy Mowatt, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Cedella Marley Booker, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Mad Professor, the Skatalites, Johnny Nash, Johnny Cash (feat. Joe Strummer), Steady Earnest, Grover Washington Jr., and many more. Finally, DJ Baby Swiss wound things up with another Feb. 6 reggae birthday, that of the great artist/producer Derrick Harriott, here being covered by Giuliano Palma and doing his own thing alongside U-Roy.
