Continuing the Echo Chamber 15th Anniversary festivities, pulling in some artists we missed last week – including Arrogalla, Subatomic Sound System, Thomas Blondet, Vibronics, Citizen Sound, Dubblestandart, and Easy Star All Stars. On top of this we had brand new releases from Zion Train:http://www.wobblyweb.com/zt/state-of-mind.html, Funk Dub Division:http://www.myspace.com/funkdubdivision, Victoria Moralez:http://www.victoriamoralez.com, Ras Amerlock, Luisa Maita, Indigenous Resistance, and more. Finally, we included another mix (TDZ #101) from The Dub Zone, Pete Cogle’s fantastic podcast series.
Another crazy mix of music tonight – including a bunch of new tunes and some items intended for last week’s Echo Beach special, like Senor Coconut, Tito Puente, Paul Haig, Cal Tjader, and 11 Acorn Lane. New releases include Vincenzo Cipollone’s excellent Far West; the heavy new Virtual Dub 4 compilation from Manwel T and friends; and the strange but good Vampire Slayer album from Denja (on Atlanta Street). More new material in the mix from B.Riddim, Zion Train, Goapele (with the sexy Play single), Digitaldubs, Vieux Farka Toure, and Ras Amerlock.
After two weeks of celebrating the Echo Chamber’s 15th Anniversary, tonight we celebrated the 30th Anniversary of ON-U Sound! The list of ON-U stalwarts appearing on the big show included: Dub Syndicate, Creation Rebel, Voice of Authority, Prince Far I, Little Annie, Garl Clail, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Barmy Army, Singers & Players, Bim Sherman, Deadley Headley & Rico Rodriguez, Little Axe, London Underground, Dr. Pablo, and Missing Brazilians.
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.
