This show is dedicated to my brother who introduced me to dub when I was a teenager. In the days when no one but the most devout Jamaican reggae connoisseur knew any artists other than Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff, my brother was listening to Lee Perry’s Upsetters and Black Ark Experryments, King Tubby, Prince Jammy, Gladiators, and even Yabby You.
He himself installed a very loud, very powerful stereo system into his car and then later into his truck, and drove around with everything from Too Short to Chris LeDoux to Peter Tosh blaring. To this day I don’t think that music ever sounded better, clearer, or cooler than it did on those occasions when I got to ride with him.
So, now it’s your turn: put on the radio or tune in to weft.org/listen and turn it way up, hop on your bike, skateboard, or into your car, turn your windows down and drive. This is two hours of psychedelic dub from around the world with special remixes by The New Elastic Infinite.
