Dub (2nd Edition)

Dub is a powerful genre that's invaded the globe and endured for decades. On this program you'll find many artists working their dub magic, from masters like Sly & Robbie --producers of Grace Jones' album Hurricane--now offering a second disc of the album all in dub included in the domestic release. Also featured, from the dynamic dub duo's 90's release on the Bill Lasswell Axiom label is Return to the Bass & Trouble. In addition enjoy selections from Hercules & Love Affair's latest album Blue Songs, Captain Planet's latest album Cooking Gumbo, Mr. Scruff vs Kirsty Almeida featured on Nickodemus' Turntables on the Hudson Vol. 8 and more. Check out the first Dub Invasion Festival in NYC throughout September 2011 at various venues and catch a stellar lineup of talent descending on the Big Apple.


In the Hopper


The latest gems from independent artists, record labels and producers! Jeannie Hopper has a long-standing herstory of giving artists a chance to be heard. In her DJ sets and on WBAI's Liquid Sound Lounge, she regularly puts together playlists of under-represented and emerging artists so her loyal following can just sit back and avoid the high-intensity shuffle of sorting through all the beautiful and overwhelming things the Information Age has to offer. Now she brings some of that good stuff to AIR.
