WTM #1134: DUBiotic SUBversion
wReck thiS meSS ~ Radio Patapoe 88.3
Amsterdam ~ Ethno-Illogical Psycho-Radiographies

05.09.11 // 16.45-18.30

Every so often I have to do a doom-gloom show to shake my ghosts, to shed the gray, to confront increased economic & political tensions that only music can confront & heal. I hope. The music that often addresses this despondency is dub because it is both hopeful & not unnecessarily frivolous or upbeat. It is both hopeful and realistic, this steps over into dubstep, the best of which [when its not formulaic] deals with dark sci-fi imagery that seems to address our current malaise. That it can be subversive is indicated by its perpetual marginality. What the best dub – be it roots, speculative or electronic – confronts concerns & fears that we all have to face & it does so by maintaining an equilibrium between realism & promise, between dejection & rejoicing, intelligent enough to be emotional about the fact that the 1 contains the other.

This is really good. Deep and submersive rather than 'gloomy'.

Wish you would do more shows like this one. Reminds me of the WFMU shows of our past.
