What a fun “Christmas In Dub” special inna Echo Chamber. Starting off with 3 new holiday songs from Kaysha Lee, Michelle Gordon, and the Fort Knox All Stars (with a dubwise remix of “Christmas Time Is Here” Peanuts Christmas track). Of course we mined the reggae Christmas archives, and added more clubby remixes for plenty of cheer. Finally we debuted the new “Age of Golden Dub/Golden Age Dub” single from Eating Betty and Nuphlo. Quite a merry time indeed!
