The Howe Sound System - Feb 7th, 2012

Playing tracks by

Lee "Scratch" Perry, Yabby You, Vivian Jackson & The Prophets, Brian Eno & David Byrne, African head charge and more.

A real journey this week as we kick off with a couple of Lee "Scratch" Perry tunes followed by some Yabby You grooves. Classic reggae all the way. The vibe amps up with Brian Eno & David Byrne's "Regiment" - off one of the first albums to heavily use samples as lead vocals. Is there anything Eno didn't pioneer? The assault continues with African Head Charge leading the way. Part two sees us taking the vibe down several notches as we enter the heady atmosphere of synths and soft flutes via Schpongle's "Flute Fruit". An Oud Improvisation running through some heavy reverb floats us across the musical ether as we slowly build up a groove and bounce our way to the finish, ending the set with an onsite recording of an Islamic call to prayer.
