Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Mutant Dub Meltdown!

 

Before there was a Dubstep, I was calling it Mutant Dub!

Greetings,

Needed a long weekend to begin the giant move into the newly renovated Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives

The Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives – Day 1

Last Saturday: From 7:30 AM to 6 PM. Moved all my LPs, 10″ and 12″ black wax from my detached garage to the Ark-Ive.

Loaded massive Tupperware tubs full of records. Loaded them on a Dolly and pushed them the 50 feet from garage to the back door. Lifted them over the door stop and finessed them into the new room.

Since I had spent all winter and spring sorting 15,000? pieces of black vinyl goodness into proper categories, moving from the tubs to the shelf was easy.

Now if I want to find Mutant Dub, herbtune, Halloween songs by female artists. I know right where to go. Before it was a game of needle in a haystack trying to remember which pile to dig through.

Other than a quick lunch, it was 9 hours of physical, exhausting labor. I was drenched in sweat and sore all over..

But it was worth it. Looks very nice and neat. Unlike the hoarder/collector vibe of massive cardboard boxes filled with stock bought out from long dead record store chains.

CDs are next. So because i don’t like to go a week without new content at Mixcloud’s Smile Jamaica Podcast link: enjoy 3 hours of Mutant Dub not interruptions, just bass in ur face!

I’ll be checking it while I spend 10AM to 3PM Saturday huffing CDs into the Ark-Ive

Vinyl last Saturday. Non-Reggae CDs and DVDs this Saturday – From the garage into the Ark-ives

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): June 3, 2017 – Black Wax Cratedigger’s Harvest!

 

Lots of my Student Loan kasheesh was spent at this SLC record shop. Going strong 30 plus years later. Removed 90% of their CDs to make room for MOAR vinyl

A life in cratedigging. Kick started the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive’s in my friend Neil’s dorm room. Fall of 1986. That lit the fuse!…..

<Black Uluru in a dorm room? Instant Reggae fanatic; 20 sec.>

…I’m going through a home remodel. 40 years of record collecting crammed into my garage right now. When I ran out of shelves, I bought some big ass tupperware bins to try and make it all fit.

This has to fit into my new addition. A Library for a Librarian

Between my organic collecting (used record stores, Ebay/Amazon, stock from my distributor when I sold Reggae online) and my binge buying when Record Stores started dying out in the mid 2000’s, my 1200 square foot house had reached a state of entropy.

So to make room for the demolition of two bedrooms to accommodate an actual Library (A Librarian with his own Library!), I had to move everything into my garage in a short amount of time.

Now that the project is coming to completion, I have to move everything back in!

Can 40 years of books, records, CDs, DVDs and VHS tapes fit into a space 41 feet by 10 feet? Stay tuned!

My method?

  • Get up early on Saturday. Have my spinach determining what I’m going to sort and separate  in the garage.
  • Go have breakfast at Left Fork Grill with my best bredrin Leonard and his buddy John
  • Drink about 8 cups of coffee
  • Head back to mi casa in Sugarhouse
  • Grab a stack of disks for my CD boombox to while away the time sifting wax
  • Fully caffeinated: Start to organize the entropy.
    • I would separate by format: LP, 12″ disco mix, 10″ disco mix, non-Reggae vinyl
    • Then: look by title and cull albums if they fit one of my preferred set-genres
      • 420
      • Roots Dawtas
      • UFOria
      • Wailers Family Tree
      • Halloween
      • Marley Tribute songs
      • Rockers doing Reggae

I don’t know how many physical vinyl pieces I have (not even including 7″ 45s). CDs a whole separate issue.

10,000 pieces? 15,000? Somewhere in between.

It has literally taken me from early January to June to sort it all and separate for the final move into the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive.

From when I moved to SLC from Bozeman, MT in Sept. of 1986, I have been on a vinyl crusade. And the nostalgia of where and how I acquired the lion’s share of black wax really kicks off memories of a subculture that has mostly died out: the local record store.

Many great ones are still slinging wax: Like Randy’s in Salt Lake. Ditched their CDs to make room for the vinyl resurgence: 20 sec.

But over 500 stores have gone out of business in the last decade. When the music industry killed vinyl, they didn’t anticipate that digital music sales like Itunes, Spotify etc. would make those $18.99 CDs economically irrelevant.

Columbus and Bay in North Beach. I would stay across the street at the Travelodge and crate dig til closing. Nearly cried when I heard the news Tower was going under

And even though vinyl is making an awesome comeback (full vindication for I ‘n’ I), it’s too late for many of my favorite haunts.

Last summer my local Montana chain went out of business: Hastings. I would drive through gorgeous wheat fields and flowing rivers and cratedig from Butte, Missoula, Helena, Great Falls, Bozeman and Billings.

700 hundred miles from SLC to Fort Benton, Montana. Hastings books/cds/DVDs broke up the monotony of the drive. Went out of business Summer 2016

As much as I love Montana and my parents, I’m not driving home this summer. Not much for me to do there now but watch wheat grow.

<How to deal with the Trump-o-calypse: Let’s Go Out With a Bang!>

Greetings,

Hope everyone had a nice Holiday. I spent the first week at my sister’s in Albuquerque. My parents just became Snowbirds, so my second week was in Phoenix.

Phoenix is a great town for vinyl. CDs are becoming irrelevant, but the racks are full of black wax and lots of people doing what I do for 30 years: cratedig. So I will be visting often in the months of Dec-March. Otherwise, vinyl melts from the store to the car!

Found some nice gems to play in 2017. For over a decade now, the first show of the year on Smile Jamaica is devoted to what I call Mutant Dub: Jamaican drum and bass with modern electronic sounds and textures awash in echodelia.

The 3 hour Mutant Dub World Tour!

As Joe Strummer sang, “Knives to the trebel!”

  1. Crank the volume!
  2. Set bass phasers to stun!

Happy New Year. Forward ever, backwards never!

Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Jah-cember 2016 – Mutant Dub A-Z!

images-27

Greetings,

Been on a cratedig during the Thanksgiving Holiday. So I have been away from the decks at KRCL Smile Jamaica.

My fascination beyond Reggae is what I have called Mutant Dub for nearly 30 years: Take Reggae drum & bass and weld it on to contemporary dance, dub echo and modern pulsating electro beats.

So I hunkered down in my Secret Dubratory this week and cooked up what I call Digital Dubplate shows. Bonus roots and dubbers.

From A to Z. From Audio Active out of Jah-pon to Zombi Italian dubbers. Massive Attack, The Slits, ON U Sound, Bill Laswell and Thievery Corporation.

Dub ‘n bass will put a smile pon your face!

bless, robt

Roswell Daily R soecord: July 9, 1947 – no doubt they crashed, so Extra Terrestrials are real

<Two stories on the date of the Roswell crash>

True story on Roswell:

My brother in law sells high tech pipe to agricultural, research labs, salsa manufacturers. He lives in Albuquerque but travels the length of New Mexico.

One day in Roswell he asked his customer about the 1947 UFO crash. Was it real or bullflop?

His customer said: the local mortuary owner, salt of the earth rural America. Veteran. Straight shooter. The Air Force came to him and asked him to provide 3 children’s size coffins.

“If that’s what he said, that’s how it happened”

Friday Nights

Ancient Aliens TV – Friday Nights on the History Channel. This explores the various connections between Earth’s history and Alien contact before there was recorded history.

<My love of Sumerian history led to UFO-ria; > 2 min 6 sec

Basically Aliens from Nibiru called Anunnaki (Those who came down from the sky) who came to Earth b/c we had the gold they needed for their ruined planet. They were essentially too lazy to mine the gold themselves so they created a race of humans to do the work. When the humans got too noisy, they were destroyed with a flood.

Click image for a better view of how Nibiru’s orbit intersects with Earth and the Sun

Mystery-of-Nibiru-orbit (1)
The 12th Planet Nibiru – 9 planets, Earth’s moon, the Sun, Nibiru. Elliptical orbit from outside the galaxy toward the Sun

Every 3600 years the orbit of Nibiru approaches earth: The Anunnaki drop their space ships to space ports in:

  1. Sumer (lower Iraq)
  2. Sinai (Egypt) – the pyramids are guide posts for entry
  3. Baalbek (Syria)
  4. Mohenjo Daro (Pakistan)

Humans mine the gold. Nibiru whips around the sun heading back out to the edge of our Universe, the ships go up and land on Nibiru for the journey home.

They will be back in 3440 AD.

2. Zecharia Sitchin

An Azerbaijani Jew who translated thousands of cuneiform texts that showed what we know from the Bible and Greek Mythology were actually much older from original source stories from Sumer.

His book series, Earth Chronicles, discusses these topics

Zecharia Sitchin – the original Astro Theologist

7 volumes of Aliens on Earth. Stories from the Bible and Greek Mythology came after their Sumerian originals

What have I learned from my bingewatching and binge reading?

All those stories from the Bible and parts of stories from Greek Mythology,  Iraqi A Thousand and One Nights, Hindi religious literature is all “plagiarized” from my ancestors the Sumerians (I am an Assyrian from that area on my mom’s side. Assyrians adapted from the Sumerian cosmology).

What is in the Bible or world literature that relates to Alien space travel?

UFO’s in the Bible

<Spaceships in the Bible; 44 sec.>

  • Noah’s Ark – No: Ziusudra in his submarine or Utnapishtim in his Tessaract
  • Burning Bush – Spaceship
  • Ezekial’s Wheel – Spaceship
  • Jacob’s Ladder – Spaceship
  • Elijah’s Chariot of Fire – Spaceship
  • Enoch (Noah’s great grandfather – “walked with God and then was not”. Taken to the Heavens = Spaceship

Flying Saucers by Tena Stelin – Lyrics transcribed for the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives:

Anunnaki, Anu-Anunnaki
Anunnaki, El Kuluwm

Flying Saucers
Them a chat bout on-ya
Flying Saucers
Up in the Sky near and far
It’s coming like Star Wars…Watch it!

Please tell me: what is the meaning?
The meaning of these sightings?
So many people claim to see the same thing
I guess it must mean something

Talking about Extra Terrestrials!
Ask yourself: is it real or is it impossible? Watch out!

In the Book of Ezekiel
It’s like he describes a Crystal Ship

I’ve got to wonder if he was for real?
Was he just a raving lunatic? Hallelu-Jah!

Enoch walked with God
And he was found not

Elijah was taken up into a Chariot
A Chariot of Fire!

Inna Ancient Mesopotamia
They talked about the Anunnaki
They said they came from beyond the Sky
Oh tell me! Was they telling a lie?

El Kuluwm means the Source
El Kuluwm the highest course
All and Iley and Allah is the Same
So the Rastaman tell me no feel no way
