Ras Kush – Xmas Day 2000 – Pt.1

Monday, September 21st, 2009

Dec 25th 2000: As the 20th Century drew to a close Streamola was at its Zenith – a regular community audience would gather in the Yahoo Club Rasta to listen. Popular selecters like AK The Conqueror (lovers rock), and Humble Tafari of Wildfiyah (lightning and thunder), Manwel in Malta, Raggamuffin in West Va, would take turns to feed the Streamola shoutcast server in NYC. In a massive session on this day Ras Kush stepped into the studio to fill the slot between AK and Humble, providing fine cheer and goodwill to all. His set, as often, kicks off with a heavy dose of Wackies.  Welcome exposure is given to NYC steppers from The Kushites, before we are launched headlong into a lengthy tribute to recently passed artists Augustus Pablo and Bim Sherman. After the amazing, and rare, Hortense Ellis 7″- Superstar, there is a selection of brand new tunes out of NYC, Germany,  and then an extended selection of foundation Thompson Sounds.

Pt.2 and Pt.3 are coming.

Ras Kush w/Ari Up – live and direct – Mar 17 2001 (Pt.1)

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

St. Paddy’s 2001 – a Saturday night.  Ras Kush, returned from an extended visit to Japan, goes live on the Reggae Vibes stream. He kicks off with some warm rub-a-dub before breaking out the crucial UK steppers. Ari Up aka Madussa shows up and immediately gets on the mic for an extended skank on her tunes of the day. After a short period of technical difficulty we hear some sublime roots n culture in the old time come back again style; as the version runs back comes Ari with “No Peace” – a song I’ve never heard her sing anywhere else.  A Gregory Isaacs segment allows Ari to tear it up on the Slavedriver riddim.  A strong Horace Martin dub sees her produce a novel take on The Slits  ‘New Town’.

I know the tape cuts off suddenly, but Part 2 is coming..
