This week Dr. StrangeDub and DJ Baby Swiss parked themselves at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the “Echo Beach” end of summer special: an annual special where every track is appropriate for the Dub Club Tiki Bar – from instrumental Surf, to old R&B, Jazz, Cumbia, Chicha, Exotica Lounge, chilled Electronica, James Bond theme music, Bollywood sounds, Latin grooves, Ska, and Dub. Maybe the most eclectic list of artists ever on the Echo Chamber.
