Jamaican Echoes - The Documentary - June 29/08

Twilight Circus' studio.

It's finally done and ready to air.

With great pleasure, DJ Chocolate and I direct your attention to Patti Schmidt's new show, Inside The Music, this Sunday June 29th. It's on CBC Radio 2 at noon, and on Radio 1 at 8PM. This time slots are consistent across the country, so there's none of that "8PM Eastern, 9PM Central" stuff.

To recap - Jamaican Echoes has been my biggest project of the last 9 months. It's a documentary which traces the spread of dub from a studio accident in Jamaica to a worldwide musical sensibility.

Interviews will include:

Adrian Sherwood (On-U Sound - Depeche Mode, Primal Scream)
Bill Laswell (Global dub innovator - Fela Kuti, Motorhead, Herbie Hancock)
Twilight Circus (M Records - Michael Rose, Big Youth, Queen Ifrica)
Clifton Joseph (Dubzzz poet at large - CBC, Dub Poets Collective)
Dubmatix (Nu dub from Toronto – new disc features Alton Ellis, Sugar Minott)
Leroy Sibbles (All-time reggae legend! Heptones, Studio One bassist)
Michael Veal (Author; Dub: Soundscapes And Shattered Songs In Jamaican Reggae)

This documentary is produced, written and edited by yours truly and hosted and co-produced by Lauren "DJ Chocolate" Speers.

Just finished listening to Jamaican Echoes - The Documentary on CBC. Thoroughly enjoyed it! An excellent learning experience. Any idea if this will be made into a podcast? or if there will be a transcript. I can make some similarities to development in architecture and design.

Thanks for listening, and yes, I can see your point re: archictecture & design.

No plans for podcast just yet, and I haven't been told to provide a transcript, but I'll get the word out as soon as I find out.

They recently replayed this documentary and I managed to catch it. Now I'd love to find an audio-stream of it, or purchase a recording if necessary, so I can share it with all my friends. Any ideas?

Thanks for tuning in Elliot. I really wish there was some way to make this doc more widely available, but unfortunately there isn't. No stream or download exists for it. I don't own the rights to it... Sorry.
