August 2018 Echo Chamber Archives

After the half, d.j. babyswiss took the mix Japanese to commemorate this Sunday's upcoming Obon (a.k.a. Lantern Lighting) Festival at Como Park.  Some notable international hands-across-the-water collabs here, including YMO's Haruomi Hosono with Bill Laswell,   Hosono again with Uwe Schmidt (a.k.a. "Atom Heart", "Senor Coconut", etc.),   Channel U (Yusuke Yamamoto) with N.Y. upright bassist Matt Pavolka,  and YMO's Ryuichi Sakamoto with Robin Scott (think M of "Pop Muzik" fame).

Echo Chamber – After the Half – shoving off (as the good Dr. prepares to depart the station)  with The Pressure Droppers, whose new Ricochet album was engineered by none other than Victor Rice, and "World on Fire Dub" is a worthy showcase for VR's formidable mixing-desk skills, as is "Copycat Dub".
