The Vineyard

In The Vineyard brengt DJ Lightah sinds 1995 reggae tunes, het beste uit Jamaica qua ska, rocksteady, roots en dub van de jaren ’60 tot ’80.
Regelmatig komen ‘specials’ aan bod over relevante onderwerpen zoals: Marcus Garvey, het ontstaan van dub, de rudeboys, Haile Selassie, e.a.
Af en toe hebben we ook interviews met artiesten, showcases van belgische groepen, dj’s en soundsystems of geven we kadootjes weg zoals gratis tickets of de beruchte Killah Classics.

Enkele sessies kunnen herbeluisterd en gedownload worden via talawa.fr
 

The Vineyard deze zondag: Dub!

We hebben twee uur vette dubs klaarstaan deze week. Van Steppers tot Technodub, Militant Roots Dub en Rubadub. Laat de bassen u vervoeren naar de hoogste sferen.

In a 1982 essay, Luke Ehrlich describes Dub through this particular scope: “With dub, Jamaican music spaced out completely. If reggae is Africa in the New World, then dub must be Africa on the moon; it’s the psychedelic music I expected to hear in the ‘60s and didn’t. The bass and drums conjure up a dark, vast space, a musical portrait of outer space, with sounds suspended like glowing planets or the fragments of instruments careening by, leaving trails like comets and meteors. Dub is a kaleidoscopic musical montage which takes sounds originally intended as interlocking parts of another arrangement and using them as raw material, converts them into new and different sounds; then, in its own rhythm and format, it continually reshuffles these new sounds into unusual juxtapositions.”
