Two excellent new releases debuted in the Echo Chamber tonight: Horace Andy’s “Serious Times” (minor7flat5) and Dubmatix’s “System Shakedown” (Renegade Media). Also, the fine compilation “Dub Rising Vol. 1” from the Kingdub.com site (available for free), Thievery Corp.‘s new retrospective “It Takes a Thief”, and some new dubs from Vibration Lab. And, though we’ve featured excerpts from it for months, tonight we finally had the entire excellent “Revelation Congo” (Jah Urban Sound /Springline) album from The Manor.

Great way to keep up with local music’s rising stars, and established talents. Also heard new music this morning from Azure Ray, Duke Robillard, Gold Motel, and a couple tracks from the new Putumayo Tribute to a Reggae Legend (Bob Marley).
