Tonight in the Explorers Room: We Set the Mantrols for the Heart of the Sun (Cosmic Themes in Dub and Reggae)

Tonight in the Explorers Room, we go boldly forth into heavy heavy dubspace, in search of cosmic themes in dub and reggae, a little corner of music that is, or can be, as Afrofuturist as Sun Ra or Parliament-Funkadelic.  It's just endlessly trippy as well, so it should be a wild evening of sounds: heavy echo, laser synths, alien moogs, and bizarre vocals.  See you there, explorers, gazing at the cosmos through the bay windows of the Starship Africa.

Tonight in the Explorers Room: Extended Meditations

Tonight in the Explorers Room we'll be easing our troubled souls with a variety of extended meditative compositions, including new age soundscapes, German synth music, field recordings, and ethnological forgeries.  Come join me for a dip in the embryonic waters.

Tonight in the Explorers Room: Heat Waves, Echoes Hypnotiques

Tonight in the Explorers Room, we'll be once again trying to combat the oppressive summer heat with steamy hot night music – from Jamaica, West Africa, and elsewhere – teeming with echoes, echoey electric guitars, and revolutionary sentiment.  Let the sounds ring through the night like heat lightning in your soul, and cool thyself in righteousness.
