When You Help Others, You Can't Help Helping Yourself...

I walked into the Dublab studio yesterday and was greeted with the sight of DJ Expo performing all manner of incredibly impressive DJ manouvers in a set of amazing sounding soul and funk tracks, as he faded out a 15 minute Isaac Hayes track in a way that I will never be able to properly describe (it involved using some sort of DJ program to loop the song on the spot, and in effect create a new ending to it,) then my friend Ale, and I took the mic to introduce the show we were about to begin. We then spent the next hour and a half playing nothing but Jesus & Mary Chain songs, including Ale performing a live cover of "You Trip Me Up" right in the middle of our set. Right now I'm listening to a set that began with a song from lesser known late 70s 4AD band Psychotik Tanks, and has unfolded into songs that are bit more in the shoegaze and/or space rock family. What I'm listening to now, I would not be surprised to find on a Che Records compilation. Naturally this set is provided by resident post punk expert Michael Stock.

If you've been listening to Dublab.com lately you may have noticed that there is a Proton Drive going on at the moment. If you haven't been listening, but what I described above sounds like just the kind of diverse, music geek fueled radio station you would like to keep alive please head over here, and donate any amount you might be able to donate. A little over $4,000 so far has been raised so far with the goal being to reach $20,000 by next Wednesday May 21st. This can absolutely happen, but only with your help! All the incentives to donate are listed here. Keep the uniquely wonderful entity that is Dublab.com alive!
