It's been a long time since we rocked the dubcasts. Dub Session is back to launch a fresh session. Dub Session 63, Intergalactic Dub, takes you on a celestial tour where the mothership will be broadcasting to the universe on a deep-space frequency of 101 dubbahertz. Prepare for liftoff.
We present the Dub Session the Reggae Christmas Special, featuring a few new reggae specials, along with some obscure 1970s Dub-DJ "Rockers" songs, and selections from various reggae Christmas compilations. Our favorite of the bunch is the the John Holt/Ray I compilation titled "Natty I-Smas." As Ray I the Rockers DJ/Toaster says "'Tis the season for some Collie - tra la lalala lala la la."A reissue of our Reggae Rockers Christmas special.
We kick things off this Holiday season with a special double-edition of the Dub Session. We present you with a set of remix collection selections which follows the moniker of your host, DJ Chill Will starting with the Dub Session Christmas Chill Out Remix special. This is not your Momma's Chill Out elevatormuzak. This remix special features selections of trip hop, turntablism, dub, downtempo, acid jazz, breakbeats and jazzy grooves gathered from various holiday remix collections and put through the Dub Session beat blender for a tasty holiday treat. A ChillOut Christmas special reissue.
This Dub Session brings you a showdown of King Kong size proportions. In this corner, we have the latest rework of the Gorillaz. This remix by the SpaceMonkeyz brings forward one of the best fusions of dub, trip hop, cliq-hop, and pop rock since Sly and Robbie took up residence at Compass Island studios in the early 1980s. In the opposing corner we have the King Size Dub Series, volumes one through eight. This King Size series provides a sampling of some of the best modern reggae and electronica dubs being put out on the market. Get these two sound entities together in a king-size thematic ring and you have Dub Session episode 60, King Kong Dub Showdown. Monkey see, monkey do. Funky too.
Welcome to Dubrock! The show begins with a Hendrix/Zeppelin/TrubyTrio-Boozoo Blend to help you get your rocks off. Then we dub the remix with the Spacemonkeys, Gotan Project, and the Thievery Corporation. Next we take a trip to the moon with a remix of the Police's Walking on The Moon and an Easy All Stars reggae version of Breathe from the Pink Floyd's Dark Side of The Moon. We get a triple set rocker from John Brown's Body, The Samples covering John Lennon's "Watching the Wheels," and Boozoo Bajou featuring Joe Dukie. Then we bring in Common and the Marley brothers Damian, Steven and Ziggy to close the show and lay down some lovers rock vibes for the ladies. Special thanks to Marie Juana from Buenos Iries for the voice-overs.
