  • Akae Beka - Black Carbon Feat: Chronixx 7" Before Zero Records

    Akae Beka - Black Carbon Feat: Chronixx 7" Before Zero Records

    £12.99
    Two of the deepest thinkers in reggae music, Vaughn Benjamin and Chronixx, trade reflections on their collaboration, 'Black Carbon.' Originally released on the 2021 album 'Polarities,' the song is available for the first time as a vinyl single, backed by its dub version. Adorned with the swirling flute of Sheldon Bernard (Beres Hammond, Harmony House) and David Pransky’s brittle, Kora-like mandolin, the twin reggae intellects, with their uniquely delicate voices, introspect on how 'all ah we forward from the same carbon.' The song's message juxtaposes the unity that binds us with a critique of the prevailing narratives and structures that weaken this bond. It underscores the universal truth that we all originate from the same elemental blackness—a truth mirrored throughout humanity and the entire spectrum of creation. Yet, it pointedly highlights how this shared essence is often unrecognised or undervalued in the social and political realms, especially for nations and diasporas connected by the original human hue. The A-side vocal mix is followed by Tippy I’s lavish, questing dub, bringing the instrumentation to the fore. Produced by Vaughn and Zion I Kings.
  • Akae Beka - Sow And The Reap 7" Before Zero Records

    Akae Beka - Sow And The Reap 7" Before Zero Records

    £12.99
    Sagacious reggae lyricist Vaughn Benjamin’s words are particularly cutting during Sow And The Reap, the final recording of Vaughns immense catalog of works with I Grade Records. Produced by Zion I Kings, and taken from 2021’s album Polarities, Sow And The Reap folds topics of political dominance, mass migration, and injustice into a thought provokingly coherent whole. The song brims with Vaughn’s characteristic dual-meaning word-play, using evocative metaphors of nature and agriculture to illuminate global policy. Sow And The Reap’s timeless lyrical principles are matched by its inexorable reggae rhythm, featuring hefty programmed drums by Romain “Teflon Zincfence” Arnett, and sombre trombone and space age synth, both supplied by much missed multi-instrumentalist Drew Keys. Backed by its correspondingly haunting dub.
  • Akae Beka - Everything Bless (Feat. Tiken Jah Fakoly 7" Before Zero Records

    Akae Beka - Everything Bless (Feat. Tiken Jah Fakoly 7" Before Zero Records

    £12.99
    Two lyrical and spiritual forces meet, as Akae Beka and Ivorian veteran Tiken Jah Fakoly awaken the profound realisation that all is inherently blessed, encouraging us to accept life as it unfolds. Produced by Zion I Kings, Everything Bless is a gentle yet powerful reminder to embrace the present moment, cherish the divine connection with our spiritual kin, and nurture inner peace and contentment. Vaughn Benjamin meditates on the need for both determination and trust, while the ancient voiced Tiken sings in Bambara, over Mamadou Sidiki Diabate’s cascading Kora, reassuring that Jah will guide. The accompanying dub version pares down drums and vocals, maintaining the same sense of joy. Taken from 2021’s album Polarities, Everything Bless is released as a seven inch vinyl single for the first time on via Before Zero Records.

  • Creation Rebel - Dub From Creation LP On-U Sound

    Creation Rebel - Dub From Creation LP On-U Sound

    £22.99
    The debut Creation Rebel album, originally released on pre-On-U Sound label Hitrun in 1978. The original band, featuring the drummer Eric "Fish" Clarke, had been a studio outfit known as the Arabs, now primarily remembered for their work with Prince Far I, including the classic dub set "Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 1". The rhythm tracks for this album had been laid in Jamaica but the overdubs were worked up at Gooseberry Studios in London. The experienced Dennis Bovell was the engineer, with the young Adrian Sherwood on his very first production assignment encouraging him to make it “madder” and add more and more effects!

  • Creation Rebel - Psychotic Jonkanoo LP On-U Sound

    Creation Rebel - Psychotic Jonkanoo LP On-U Sound

    £22.99
    First time available on vinyl since 1982. Psychotic Jonkanoo was the sixth Creation Rebel album in three years, originally licensed to the post-punk oriented Glaswegian label Statik. Another solid set of killer dub, albeit less instrumentally inclined than their previous efforts and more focussed on militant-style conscious chants. Bandleader Crucial Tony was aided on the vocal front by harmonies from other group members, in a style reminiscent of Black Uhuru, plus the occasional guest such as John Lydon of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Limited providing backing harmony (!) on “Mother Don’t Cry”, and the legendary Deadly Headley Bennett adding saxophone to the opening track.
    “Anybody searching Adrian Sherwood's catalogue for an easy point of entry would do well to start here, and everyone else can simply applaud Psychotic Jonkanoo as the last truly great roots reggae album of the 1980s.” All Music  
  • Creation Rebel - Starship Africa LP On-U Sound

  • Creation Rebel - Rebel Vibrations LP On-U Sound

    Creation Rebel - Rebel Vibrations LP On-U Sound

    £22.99
    A rare early album by Creation Rebel back in print for the first time since 1979. Rebel Vibrations was originally issued by the pre-On-U Sound label Hitrun. The rhythms stem from one of the first recording sessions organised by maverick producer Adrian Sherwood, taking advantage of ace Jamaican drummer Lincoln “Style” Scott, sticksman for the Roots Radics, visiting the UK for the first time.
    Pairing him up with UK-based players such as Crucial Tony, Lizard Logan, Doctor Pablo and Clifton Morrison, the result is a set of tough and uncompromising dub tunes, or as Sherwood describes it: “a structure of suppressed rhythms and unique possibilities in sonic space.”  
  • Creation Rebel - Close Encounters Of The Third World LP On-U Sound

    Creation Rebel - Close Encounters Of The Third World LP On-U Sound

    £22.99
    A sublime set of roots, vocal and dubbed out instrumental magic, Close Encounters Of The Third World is a real lost gem in the treasure-filled Creation Rebel back catalogue. A true cross-atlantic collaboration - initial rhythm tracks were laid down in London in 1978, with horns and vocals overdubbed at Channel One in Jamaica, before bandleader Crucial Tony returned to London with the tapes for the album to be mixed by a visiting Prince Jammy.
    Originally released on pre-On-U Sound label Hitrun, and the second album released by the group chronologically. Unavailable for 45 years, it has been carefully pieced back together, for this new edition featuring extended 12” discomix versions of “Beware” and “Natty Conscience Free”, re-cut by Frank Merritt at The Carvery. Includes new sleevenotes by reggae scholar David Katz that tells the story of the album in full, plus download card.

Mercy features the unmistakable voice and flammable lyrics of ferocious rockstone deejay Capleton. Thunderclap gives a similarly hard stepping backdrop to the younger brother of Supercat, Junior Cat, who carries the hypnotic family style. The Capleton vocal comes with a pair of spiky, heavily filtered dubs, making mass movement a must. This release was originally due to come out in 2020, but got locked down in the lockdown and is now back due to popular demand. 

  • Let's Do Rock Steady (The Soul of Jamaica) • Trojan Records

    Let's Do Rock Steady (The Soul of Jamaica) • Trojan Records

    £29.99

    The immediate successor to ska, the soulful, melodic sound of rock steady first developed during the long hot Jamaican summer of 1966 and reigned supreme thereafter for two glorious years before finally being superseded by the more energetic style of reggae.

    Despite its relatively brief period as the island’s national sound, the rhythms of many of its biggest hits have continued to influence and inspire music-makers to the present day, resulting in renewed interest in the sub-genre among record buyers in recent years.

    This superb 2xLP vinyl collection features 28 of the most popular recordings of the rock steady era, including the UK hits, ‘007’, ‘Train To Skaville’ and ‘It Miek’ and The Maytals’ anthemic dance-filler, ’54 46 That’s My Number’.

    Pressed on high quality 140gm vinyl and presented in a stylishly designed sleeve, the album not only provides the ideal introduction to this hugely popular and influential sound, but is also a must for established fans of the Jamaican sub-genre, with many of the tracks appearing on vinyl for the first time in decades.

  • Joe Armon-Jones & Hak Baker - Wrong Side Of Town 12" EP Aquarii Records

    Joe Armon-Jones & Hak Baker - Wrong Side Of Town 12" EP Aquarii Records

    £19.99

    Joe Armon-Jones teams up with Hak Baker & Nubya Garcia on new EP Wrong Side Of Town.

    .

    Wrong Side Of Town is the first in a series of releases on Aquarii dedicated to a tradition of ‘dub’ music. Now recognised as an intrinsic part of the UK musical landscape, dub music evolved from the music brought to the country by the first wave of Caribbean immigrants in the 1950s and 60s, a continuum that also takes in more contemporary genres of British music such such as jungle, drum & bass, dubstep, grime, and more.
    .
    This is exemplified by ‘Nubya’s Side Of Town’, an example of the traditional ‘horns cut’ that would appear on the b-side of roots reggae 12”s in the 70s and 80s, and which on this release is provided by Nubya Garcia, one of the most celebrated saxophonists in the UK jazz scene today. ‘Nubya’s Side Of Town’ was also played by legendary UK sound system founder Jah Shaka, in one of his last sessions before his sad passing in April 2023.  
  • Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band - 55 LP Big Crown Records

    Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band - 55 LP Big Crown Records

    £26.99
    Keeping in the tradition of steel drum records, 55 is a journey through re-interpolations and covers with an updated approach, pushing steel pan music to uncharted territory. Flawlessly bringing previously untouched genres into the steel pan cannon ranging from underground hip hop tunes to staple funk tracks and some of all that falls in between. From the popular remake of 50 Cents 'PIMP” to the DJ sure shot cover of Faith Evan’s “Love Like This,” BRSB’s 55 is reinvigorating tunes both well known and helping to shed some light on tunes still largely undiscovered. However, some of the strongest tunes on the album are original compositions, from spaced out disco vibes on “Beetham Highway Ride” and “Port Of Spain Hustle” to the ugly face inspiring drums of “Laventille Road March.” Recorded to analog eight track tape at The Mocambo Studios in Hamburg, 55 is a gritty, punchy journey in sound drawing on music from around the world, using production aesthetics from across both eras and genres, all coming together seamlessly.
  • J Dilla - Motor City LP Nature Sounds

    J Dilla - Motor City LP Nature Sounds

    £28.99
    The late, great J Dilla is widely regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time. An innovator who pushed the genre in new sonic directions, the Detroit artist born James Yancey crafted timeless soundscapes for the likes of Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, Common, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, The Roots, and more. Since his 2006 death, Dilla’s mother Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey has worked tirelessly to further her son’s legacy, and this effort is evident on the stellar posthumous album Motor City. Inspired by Dilla’s beloved hometown, Motor City is a collection of rare and unreleased Jay Dee instrumentals, hand-selected and sequenced by Ma Dukes. J Dilla is widely regarded as one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time. His legendary career included production work for A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, Common, The Roots, De La Soul, The Pharcyde, Slum Village, Bilal, Talib Kweli, Dwele, and many more

  • Liam Bailey - Zero Grace | Big Crown Records LP / CD

    Liam Bailey - Zero Grace | Big Crown Records LP / CD

    £22.99

    Zero Grace is full of freedom and love, in fact, working with Leon Michels and Big Crown Records has encouraged Liam to be himself. On album opener “Holding On ” Bailey speaks to his observations & fears when looking out at the world in front of him and also to the dedication it has taken to get on the other side of his personal trials & tribulations. “Dance With Me” is an instantly infectious two-stepper that nods to those incredible soul records that were coming out of Jamaica during the early Reggae days. Bailey steps into the dance with hopes of finding a new love and pulls us all out on the dance floor with him. “Disorder Starts At Home” is another close to the chest tune that addresses the difficulties he struggles with from his early chaotic childhood and his progress in getting past them. “Mercy Tree” is a powerhouse of Reggae Rebel Music. Bailey addresses the racial tensions that plague humanity and encourages everyone to step up and do their part to help foster equality. What starts out as a declaration of injustice turns into a call for action and an inspiration for hope.

    Bailey has managed another album that moves across genres but remains entirely cohesive. The title Zero Grace represents his uninhibited energy. He wears his heart on his sleeve, he speaks his mind without filters, and he has little concern for formalities where his ambitions are concerned. He won’t be held back ever. One thing is for sure, his talent speaks 

  • Ghost Funk Orchestra - A Trip To The Moon LP/CD Karma Chief Records

    Ghost Funk Orchestra - A Trip To The Moon LP/CD Karma Chief Records

    £24.99
    Coming off the heels of 2022's A New Kind of Love, A Trip To The Moon sees GFO diving even deeper in the worlds of film music, exotica, and psychedelic surf rock. The aim is to create a layered and collaged listening experience with more elements than you could possibly pick out in a single listen. The guitars are fuzzy and flooded with spring reverb, and the horns are arranged in a studio big band fashion. It's full of big compositions with garage rock attitude. Influences range everywhere from Eddie Palmieri and Esquivel to The Lively Ones, Dusty Springfield, and War. The tracks are tied together by real recorded transmissions from the Apollo moon missions. The concept for the album is a story about a woman stranded on earth by her cosmonaut partner, left to ponder his whereabouts and whether or not he'll make it back from the cosmos alive.  
  • Scratch - Keep On Searching For Love 12" Soul Jazz Records

    Two absolutely essential 80s Brit-Funk 12” tunes, fully remastered from tapes, bespoke exact repro-labels, pressed on pristine vinyl, all housed in groovy Soul Jazz/Funk Masters house bag.

  • Les Imprimés - Love & Flowers / You 7" Big Crown Records

    Les Imprimés - Love & Flowers / You 7" Big Crown Records

    £10.99
    By popular demand, and following up on the success of Les Imprimés debut album Rêverie, Big Crown Records press two more absolute standouts from the LP to 45 for the DJs and collectors.
    For the A side Big Crown Records asked Morten to do an edit for the 7” and put a little more bottom in the mix in the spirit of Larry Levan. No surprise, it worked to great effect. The “Love & Flowers” 45 Edit pushes that much harder and will move the dancefloor while the message will resonate with anyone who put too much effort into the wrong situation in their lives - “It wasn’t worth it, my new girl’s perfect”
    The B side “You” tears out of the gate with an epic crescendoing intro that sets the stage for a gorgeous sweet soul tune. A beautiful profession of love and reassurance that are as charming instrumentally as they are lyrically. Morten Martens’ gift for arrangement is on full display as he takes the listener through all the tasteful changes, never going too far, never wasting a moment.

  • Burial - Dreamfear / Boy Sent From Above 12" XL Recordings

    Burial - Dreamfear / Boy Sent From Above 12" XL Recordings

    £14.99
     "Dreamfear" is structured like a night out gone sideways. Breakbeats and samples about ecstasy rub shoulders with samples such as "your love is a drug," before an honestly kind of disturbing (and delightfully cheesy) nu-metal sample: "Back from the dead / Fucked up in the head" repeats over a groaning synth melody, like a nightmarish inversion of the angel-in-the-back-alleys reveries of early Burial. Everything sounds dirtier and fuzzier, and decades-old samples of The Prodigy and Richie Hawtin only add to the eerie feeling that you've been here before.
    If "Dreamfear" is the bad trip, "Boy Sent From Above" is when the substances start to wear off and you can see and hear clearly again. Untrue-style R&B samples (Monica's "Angel Of Mine") float over a peppy breakbeat sample, eventually climaxing into a bleary-eyed synth horn refrain that hints at both '80s freestyle and early prog house—a swelling of conflicted emotion that feels like the work of a more mature Burial, a grizzled old raver rather than the misty-eyed bedroom poet of the old days. Both this one (and its crunchy ending) and "Dreamfear" have a narrative flow and easy cohesion that Burial has been aiming at for the last ten years but sometimes missing for the sake of pure ambition. They're like hardcore continuum versions of Brian Wilson's pocket symphonies spread out across lengthy slabs of amphetamine-frazzled beats that swoop in and out like fractured flashbacks.

  • Fela Kuti - Original Sufferhead LP Knitting Factory Records

    Fela Kuti - Original Sufferhead LP Knitting Factory Records

    £23.99
     This edition of ‘Original Sufferhead’ is a major
    event. With the release of ‘Box Set #5’, and now
    on this reissue, the title track of this magnificent
    album is presented in its full-length, 25 minutes, 24
    seconds glory.
     While preparing the master disc for the box set,
    Partisan engineer Jedi, Colin Young, discovered
    four minutes of ‘lost’ material on the B-side of the
    original pressing, including a superb keyboard solo
    by Fela. This had been omitted from subsequent
    reissues.
     The restored version used here starts and finishes
    with Fela’s keyboard work, a typically venturesome
    blend of futurism and visceralism.
     ‘Original Sufferhead’ was the first album Fela
    released with the name Egypt 80 (he had
    disbanded Afrika 70 in 1979).
     On the title track, arguing from the personal to the
    political, Fela describes the inhuman treatment
    and poor living conditions experienced by working
    class Nigerians, the people he called ‘sufferheads’.
     In ‘Power Show’, Fela sings about the two-tier
    system dividing Nigerian society, in which the rich
    get treated one way and the poor another.
     LP pressed on ewuro (opaque light green) vinyl
    and housed in a single sleeve jacket.
  • Fela Kuti - O.D.O.O. (Overtake Don Overtake Overtake) LP Knitting Factory Records

    Fela Kuti - O.D.O.O. (Overtake Don Overtake Overtake) LP Knitting Factory Records

    £23.99
     ‘Overtake Don Overtake Overtake’ was the
    penultimate album of newly recorded studio
    material released by Fela before he passed in
    1997.
     Like its immediate predecessor, ‘Beasts Of No
    Nation’ (also 1989), and its follow up,
    ‘Underground System’ (1992), the album finds Fela
    continuing to campaign for human rights and social
    change despite the relentless beatings, jailings
    and general harassment he had received from
    successive military regimes since the start of the
    1970s.
     LP pressed on alawọ ewe (transparent green)
    vinyl, housed in a single sleeve jacket.
  • Fela Kuti - Ikoyi Blindness LP Knitting Factory Records

    Fela Kuti - Ikoyi Blindness LP Knitting Factory Records

    £23.99
     Fela used the cover of ‘Ikoyi Blindness’ to announce
    his change of middle name from Ransome, which he
    now considered a slave name, to Anikulapo, which
    means ‘he who carries death in his pouch.’ The front
    cover shows Ransome crossed out and Anikulapo
    added above it.
     Fela also used the album cover to announce the
    Africanisation of Africa 70’s name, changing it to Afrika
    70. In the title track, Fela draws attention to the
    economic chasm separating the haves and have-nots
    of Nigerian society, contrasting the get-rich-at-all-costs
    mindset of the residents of the prosperous Lagos
    suburb Ikoyi with the more community-minded attitude
    of the poor inhabitants of the Mushin, Maroko,
    Ajegunle and Somolu neighbourhoods. Ikoyi residents
    are blind to the sufferings of less fortunate people, said
    Fela.
     Fela returns to the topic on the second track, ‘Gba Mi
    Leti Ki N’Dolowo (Slap Me Make I Get Money)’. In
    Lagos in 1975 and 1976, there had been an upsurge in
    police and military personnel assaults on people in the
    street; motorists were commonly pulled out of their
    vehicles and given a whipping for minor traffic
    offenses. Scandalously, the police and soldiers were
    being allowed to get away with corruption in broad
    daylight. In the lyric, Fela demands that the judiciary
    administer the law equally, without fear or favour.
     LP pressed on iresi (opaque white) vinyl housed in a
    single sleeve jacket.
  • Congo Natty - Jungle Revolution • 10th Anniversary Edition LP Big Dada

    Congo Natty - Jungle Revolution • 10th Anniversary Edition LP Big Dada

    £30.00
     Congo Natty aka Rebel MC has a career dating back to his early hit with Double Trouble, ‘Street Tuff’, but is probably most respected as one of the pioneers of Jungle - perhaps the first uniquely UK born bass music.
     ‘Jungle Revolution’ features Benny Page (on the straight up ragga-jungle of ‘UK Allstars’), Vital Elements (the 150bpm anthem ‘Jah Warriors’ and ‘Jungle Is I and I’), Serial Killaz (the pure roots bounce and rinse out of ‘Get Ready’) and Boyson & Crooks (creeping technoid paranoia on ‘London Dungeons’) and was mixed with Adrian Sherwood.
     The LP clearly lays out the way in which Congo Natty sees Jungle as a re-boot of roots reggae for a new century. Full of blood and fire, the sternumbuzz of sub-bass, rapid fire drum breaks, sweet hooks, righteous anger and professions of love, it’s the kind of passionate, committed, raw and spiritual, beautiful record that doesn’t come along that often.
     Originally released in June 2013, this 10th anniversary edition comprises yellow and green coloured double vinyl cased in a reflective goldsle sleeve with the same artwork as the original.
    Download code included.
     For fans of Barrington Levy, General Levy, Benny Page, Shy FX, David Rodigan, Tenor Fly.

    Parly B - Lyrics Spree LP Scotch Bonnet

    £18.99
    For half a decade, Doncaster deejay Parly B has been a fixture of the UK and international sound system scene. His first album on Glasgow’s Scotch Bonnet Records, Lyrics Spree, builds on 2016’s EP 'This Is Digital’.
    Blessed with a voice as deep as Bounty Killer’s, a crowing gimmick reminiscent of the great Dennis Alcapone and a bottomless bag of verbosity, Parly is the complete microphone talker. He rides a shopping trolley load of digital rhythms by likeminded producers – including Danny T & Tradesman, Stalawa, Interrupt and Mungo’s Hi Fi – ranging from upbeat celebratory skanks to sweltering body winds.
    Tracks include the exuberant 80s vibes of the title tune, the brass-driven UK sound of You Mi A Look featuring fellow Mungo’s mic man Charlie P, and the moody reality chant Skylark. Lyrics Spree is infectious, verbally dexterous dancehall, spraying lyricism in your direction…
