Previews of DeeDee Bridgewater, Vieux Farka Toure’, and Femi Kuti on today’s program along with new releases from KoboTown, Idan Raichel Project & the first release off V.F. Toure’s latest, Mon Pays.

After taking a week off, Dr. StrangeDub returned to the airwaves with a ton of new music. Kicked off the fun with the excellent Dubmatix “Rebel Massive” album, and followed this with the new Dubology “Dub Experiments” album. From there we moved into the new Tribe Called Red “Nation II Nation” album; Taj Weekes & Adowa’s new “Pariah In Transit “ live album (on Jatta); Longman’s new “Akhenaten’s Dream”; Calma Dub’s “Tango Jango EP” (on Ape Choons) ; the great new “Signs & Wonders In Dub” from Dub Club (Tom Chasteen & Tippa Lee) on Stones Throw; and the new “Freedom Train” single from Victor Essiet & the Mandators. Also tonight was the debut of “The Eye of Cyclophibius” and “That was Now; This is Then” from the Mutant Frogs. In the middle of the show we ran part 2 of this year’s “Around the World in 20+ Dubs” special – where StrangeDub joined TurnTableTerrorist (Terry C) on “Echo Beach” for the 7th annual dubwise trip. And this was just the beginning… Also tonight: Indigenous Resistance ft. Jimmy Dick, Black Roots, Jungle Hammer, Marcia Aitken & Trinity, Dub Caravan meets Hornsman Coyote, Augustus Pablo/King Tubby, Ernest Ranglin, The English Beat, and much more…
