What a crazy mix of sounds tonight – everything from the latest dub from the Droegenbwoys, to the Tuareg blues of Tinariwen, to the funtime Euro-jazz of 11 Acorn Lane, the Cuban jazz of Cachaito Lopez, and the 8-bit fun of YMCK from Japan. Brand new releases included: the free “Droegenbwoys meets the Online Dub Family” compilation; Dubtrak’s excellent “Rapture” album; the very cool Psychic Life EP (featuring Jah Wobble, Julie Campbell, & Keith Levene); and Roots Manuva’s new “4Everevolution” album. More new tunes tonight from Dubsmith, Sista M, Brandy Alexander Project + Laps, Earlyworm, Waitapu, Prince Rama, Mildtape, Dub Radix, and Larry Kucharz.
