Chris Ziegler – One Reporter's Opinion
One Reporter’s Opinion—named after Chris Ziegler’s L.A. RECORD review column—is part lesson in lost history and part celebration of the new and the now in the city of Los Angeles, California, where everything happened at least once and anything could happen tomorrow. From demos to dead stock to new releases and the never-released—all genres and generations of musicians from the greater L.A. area are welcome.
Chris Ziegler is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of L.A. RECORD, Los Angeles’ only dedicated music magazine. L.A. RECORD was founded in 2005 on Ziegler’s bedroom floor and has grown into a colossal bimonthly print magazine dedicated to documenting music—in any form—across the greater Los Angeles area. Each issue is a smash-cut collection of famously in-depth interviews with music-makers of all kinds — from Kendrick Lamar to Cherry Glazerr, or Flying Lotus to Foxygen to Les McCann. It is put together by a team of local writers, illustrators, and photographers, with guest contributors like Ty Segall, Kutmah, Tim Presley of White Fence and Nick Waterhouse. Ziegler is also a contributor to MOJO magazine and the local OC and LA Weeklys. He DJs regularly at events around Los Angeles.
The monthly dublab program, One Reporter’s Opinion—named after Chris Ziegler’s L.A. RECORD review column—is one part lesson in lost history and one part celebration of the new and the now in the city of Los Angeles, California, where everything happened at least once, and anything could happen tomorrow. From demos to dead stock to new releases and the never-released—all genres and generations of musicians from the greater L.A. area are welcome.

Frosty w/guest Prophet – Celsius Drop
Here it is, highly honed and happening for YOU. On his weekly Celsius Drop show, dublab co-founder Frosty guides you through an exploration of the vast Future Roots music spectrum. Tune-in to grasp your destiny.
This week special guest Prophet bursts onto the dublab airwaves in the 11am hour of Celsius Drop. Prophet is an electric underground funk musician who until this year had only put his name to one record: a 1984 private-press LP called Right On Time. Now Prophet is finally making his return. His new album Wanna Be Your Man, produced by Stones Throw artist Mndsgn, sounds simultaneously like retro hits and the music of the future.

Jimmy Tamborello – Dying Songs
“Dying Songs” focuses on melancholic electronic music but isn’t limited to that. Sometimes it gets dark, sometimes I try to mix techno awkwardly, sometimes i get nostalgic… I like stuff that’s dreamy, ghostly, pretty and sad. I’ll try out new productions of my own, as well. I’m keeping it pretty open and we’ll see how it evolves.” – Jimmy
2:00pm – 4:00pm

Nanny Cantaloupe – Perplexagon
Nanny Cantaloupe is known for turning unsuspecting sounds on their sides and tickling them until they’re on the verge of explosion.
6:00pm – 8:00pm
Heavy Hymns & George Jensen – Quietudes
Out of the mutual appreciation for the gentle sounds from 1980’s ECM records, yacht rock, marimbas, fourth world music but also the easy folk-rock music you hear while taking a drive after partying till the morning and wanting to watch the sun come up, the Quietdudes want to soundtrack those moments for you.
8:00pm – 10:00pm
Induce – Dancing, Thinking Loving, Listening
It all started with these words from Induce, “Bout to get on and play some weird stuff @dublab till about 4. Tune in!” Then the lightning split the sky and all the sounds from the dublab studio on this oblate spheroid called Planet Earth were pulled into the cosmos in a single beam of high lumen energy. From this newly elevated point they hit the universal prism of memory reflection and were split throughout the wide universe. We’re happy you got your radio attuned to Induce’s transmission. Whether you’re hearing this 2 billion years from now or simply right now we know you’ll enjoy the “weird stuff” being offered.
10:00pm – 11:59pm
