New podcast – Funky Dubby Rasta cast…

leave a comment »

Howdy do all.

I finally have a new podcast up. Sorry about not getting one up for Decemeber but as you will find if you listen in, I was pretty much flat out all last month! I still am actually but dag gummit, I needed to get a podcast together so I did!

And just a quick FYI, I have it available for download here and it should be ready on iTunes in a week or so once the bandwidth resets at my server (stupid bandwidth limits … ugh!!!)

OK so this time around we are goin’ funky, dubby (kinda..) and rastahy(kinda).

Thanks to Sarah Hunter I discovered a few new artists last month. Sarah works with a lot of the funk/dub/reggae bands in Wellington and she emailed me and asked if I had thought about doing a podcast focusing on that aspect of the Wellington music scene. Yes I had thought about it but just never had a chance to really look into all that was going on there funk/dub wise…

Well again thanks to Sarah I found a few artists that really blew me away. I think y’all will be equally impressed with the artists too!

Check out their MySpace pages if you get a chance. I have linked to them below.

The Black Seeds
Eru Dangerspiel (Riki Gooch of Trinity Roots)
Fat Freddy’s Drop
Pacific Heights (Devin Abrams aka Reno of Shapeshifter)
Rio Hunuki – Hemopo (also of Trinity Roots)
Video Kid (no MySpace page – well except for the Flight of the Conchords’ page as Video Kid is Bret McKenzie)
Mara TK

***Ironically, as dub is in the title of this podcast I really didn’t include any dub because true dub has no lyrics… and the song in this podcast that has no lyrics isn’t really dub! Just had to qualify as it bugs me when certain songs are classified as dub, when in fact they are not…

And here we go….
