November 2017 Echo Chamber Archives

All the ghouls, goblins, duppys, and dreads gathered for the annual “Echo Chamber of Horrors” special! With layers of special effects & soundbytes, including the movies “Dracula”, “Frankenstein”, “The Exorcist”, and more!

Another big show with a bunch of new tunes and some classics too… But the highlight of the program was my interview of Jesse Royal, done at the Rootfire At The Park feastival in Cocoa, Florida. My first Echo Chamber after spending a great Reggae weekend at Rootfire (staying with my old college buddy Gary) which featured Jesse Royal, Tarrus Riley, Stephen Marley, Citizen Cope, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Shaggy, and more. And what an honor to interview Jesse Royal, Michael Franti, and the Ries Brothers. So, we featured all those artists, plus new and recent tunes from Danny T & the Tradesman, Jah Warrior, Damian Marley, Jah Warrior, Matias Aguayo & The Desdemonas, Tiburk, Cocoa Tea, Black Seeds, Baraka Moon, Foresta, San Lazaro, and Fever Ray. But that was just the new stuff… More great tunes from Rass Kwame, Rootz Underground, Marina P & The Radiators, The Ullulators, Tabu Ley Rochereau, Papa Mopero, Mutant Frogs, and more!

Another very special episode of the Echo Chamber! Tonight we aired Part 3 of my interview of the “Musical Prophet” Ras Midas on the various topics contained in his seminal 1980 album “Rastaman In Exile” which was recently given a big re-release in extended form. But before the reasoning session we filled the first hour with a bunch of great new roots & dub from Victor Rice, Jesse Royal, Chronixx, the Vibronics featuring Rod Taylor, Addis Pablo, and Lee Scratch Perry & Subatomic Sound System. Plus that, Dr. StrangeDub cued up 2 tracks from the “Reggae Kulcha V.1” which the good man at Kulcha Shok Muzik gave me free with the shirt I bought at Rootfire at The Park in Cocoa, FL. Also, finally played one from Making Movies cool new album “I Am Another You”. But back to Ras Midas… In part 3 of our reasoning we discuss and air the songs “Lean On Jah”, “Melchizedek”, “Let The People Go”, and “Rasta Surprise”, the last 2 being the bonus tracks on the 2016 release. The second half was another off the wall DJ Baby Swiss mix, with sounds from the Ullulators, Thriftworks, The Sensibles, Miharu Koshi, Kolortown, Mr. Swing & the Bongo Clan, Ott, and more…
