This one called »Dub Pressure«. The Pressure is everywhere and the pressure is wide spreading from one to one. This tape is like a dedication to stand against the hard time pressure and to focus on that, whats present – and on that, what is possible. I’ve recorded this one as a live stream dated back to the 15th May of 2020. It contains the pattern from UK Dub and goes on. From the ’90s – to the mids – to the present time. Turn up your loudspeaker and follow the base. Fulljoy!

A good six months ago an attack on a shisha bar in Hanau was committed. 9 people were killed. People who still had most of their lives ahead of them. Right-wing terrorism and racism is also evident in the NSU affair, which has not yet been fully cleared up. »Single perpetrator« seems to be a synonym for these attacks. This is also true in the case of Walter Lübke, who was shot in the head in Kassel. The acts are no longer available. Racism and right-wing radicalism are systemic acts, but are not considered to be systemically relevant. Convictions do not come to an end. 75 years ago, on May 8, 1945, Germany was liberated from fascism. Nobody won, because the contractions of fascism are still present to this day. Therefore I remember the victims of equal deeds. In Hamburg, there is also a constant remembrance of victims of the system. With posters, billboards and flyers on fences, on window panes and on the streets. Right-wing radicalism, fascism and racism are not unique phenomena in the current system and are far from being stifled. Therefore there was a demonstration f.e. in Stuttgart on August 19, 2020, where people took onto the streets and raised the flags. My live stream of 8 May 2020 takes up this topic and tries to negotiate this. Even the similarities between the victims, for example in everyday racism, and the working class are part of it.

I have just released my May 1st live mix, which is dedicated to the working class people around the world. The 1st of May is the day of the working people. Its historical tradition dates back to 1884 when the »Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions of the United States and Canada« called for a general strike on May 1, 1886. They demanded an eight-hour working day instead of a twelve-hour day. In the whole of the United States between 300.000 and 500.000 people went on strike. The largest demonstration took place in Chicago with 90.000 people. On May 3, six workers were shot and some were injured. The following night, thousands of workers gathered and ran to Haymarket Square as a sign of their protest against the violence of the capitalist system. On May 4, the workers gathered to express their solidarity with their dead comrades and to protest against the brutality of the police. A bomb was dropped on Haymarket Square. Nobody knows whom the bomb came from, but research suggests that an Agent Provocateur detonated the bomb on behalf of the authorities. A peaceful event turned into a massacre. Demonstrators were shot and killed once again at the hands of the government. The strike lasted three days until the police broke through and crushed the protest. During this time, around 200 workers were injured or killed. The day went down in history as the »Haymarket Riot«. The organizers were sentenced to death. Despite defeat, the day was a step forward in the victory of socialism. It clearly showed the working classes of the world that they either remain wage slaves in bourgeois societies or liberate themselves by overthrowing bourgeois society and its class violence against the oppressed. So this two-hour-long roots reggae and dub mix, with some selected melodies of humanity and against oppression, is dedicated to both tradition and the upcoming struggles for a better, fairer world. Solidarity is the key.

Diese Selection habe ich am 15. April 2020 gemischt und über mein Facebook Profil live gestreamt. Das Set beginnt mit meditierenden Sounds, fragt nach den Ursachen einer ungerechten Umverteilung und appelliert an Zusammenhalt und zur Solidarität. Ein Gang durch die Geschichte des Roots und Dub. Fulljoy!
Am 07. April 2020 habe ich über mein Facebook Profil die letzte Rootical Dub Station gestreamt. Leider musste ich den Stream nach knapp einer halben Stunde wieder starten, da dieser abgebrochen ist. Die Audioaufnahme ist aber in einem Guss in meiner Soundcloud zu finden. Wie bisher von der Rootical Dub Station gewohnt, gibts Roots, Rockers, Dub von Vinyl straight in eure Lautsprecher. Seit der achten sind die Aufnahme auf jeweils knapp zwei Stunden gewachsen. Viel Vergnügen beim Hören!
Der nächste Live-Stream findet am Mittwoch, 15. April 2020, von 18:00 bis 20:00 (CEST/UTC+2) statt!
Vergangenen Dienstag, am 31. März 2020, habe ich ein knapp zweistündiges Set gespielt. Angefangen bei Roots und Foundation gings dann auch bis in die Gegenwart. Neu sind zum Beispiel Tunes von Jah Schulz, die im Right Time – Right Dub Album zu finden sind. Ausserdem gibts Einblicke in den Underground UKs. Vielmehr bekannt als UK Dub. „90er UK Dub Revival“ hat sich Aba Shanti I als Konzept zu seiner seit letztem Jahr angelaufenen Tour auf die Fahne geschrieben. Demnach sind einige Re-Pressungen aus dem Hause Shanti Ites erschienen und erscheinen noch. An dieser Stelle braucht es nicht mehr Worte als nötig. In diesem Sinne: Viel Vergnügen beim Hören! Der nächste Livestream findet am 07. April um 18 Uhr hier statt.
