Another great new release was the Digital Showcase from U-Rie and Neblina Sound. Also new tonight: Ghosts Outside from Steve Mason Dennis Bovell, plus new stuff from Bassnectar Seth Drake, Alpha Steppa, Grace Jones, Mista Majah P, Roots of Rebellion, and more… On top of this was half of a special Properly Chilled Mix done especially for Echo Beach (WLUW-FM, Chicago).
