DiscoEx Archive: Disco Ex Dub Machine, a Radio Show From the Vault


Since I had some examples in the last 3Z set of subtle dub effects in disco music, I thought I might share a radio show I did in May 2004 that dispenses with the subtlety and goes straight to the heart of punk and disco dub. This radio show features Alexis G, member of the awesome San Francisco-based dub/disco band Tussle(1st album is on Troubleman Unlimited, remix 12's on Rong, second album forthcoming, and also they're playing in San Francisco on Fri Dec. 16). Alexis and I got up way early in the morning, brought our favorite dub plates down to the bay area's most music-crazy station KFJC and did our 1/8th of the station's annual Day of Dub marathon. Through the control room window we watched Scientist set up his live dub digital performance rig and if I learn anything from that experience it's this: always carry a lighter. The first half of the show featured lots of spacey, Basic Channel-style techno dub and trippy early electrodub like Cabaret Volatire and Ike Yard.
