  • Cornell Campbell - Time For Peace 12" Jancro

    Cornell Campbell - Time For Peace 12" Jancro

    £13.99

    Legendary Reggae vocalist Cornell Campbell is to release a new E.P entitled ‘Time For Peace’, to mark the 52nd Anniversary of Martin Luthur King Jr’s assassination, 4th April 2021(Digital release! Vinyl released 9/9/21).

    Taking its title from Cornell’s lyrical addition to Black Man In A White World, “I want you to understand, I need, I need everyone to hang on, in love, peace and unity”, the new 12” EP features bold interpretations of two of soul music's most iconic songs about race, identity and injustice.

    Both Michael Kiwanuka’s ‘Black Man In A White World’ and ‘Outernational Blues’ - a take on the Marvin Gaye classic ‘Inner City Blues’ - evoke the sentiment and spirit of MLK’s peaceful protest, and act as a reminder as to the importance of grace, pride and dignity in difficult times. Capturing a unique combination of vocal vulnerability and wisdom, this is music that demands deep listening. Cornell Campbell’s voice at 75, carries a new found poignancy and depth of emotion; one which feels perfectly suited to delivering an elders perspective on such emotionally loaded topics.

    The E.P was recorded and produced over four countries, with the music for all tracks having been recorded in London, England at The Total Refreshment Centre, before being voiced in Kingston Jamaica at Anchor Studios. Additional backing vocals were added at Heritage Recording Co in Burbank, California, before the track was finally mixed and produced by Sergio Lopez, in Andalucia, Spain.

    ‘Time For Peace’ is the first in a series of four releases from icons of reggae, including ‘Time For Love’ by Tabby Diamond, of The Mighty Diamonds, ‘Time For Change’ by Fred Locks and ‘Time For Unity’ by Big Youth; all to be released on limited 12” vinyl.

  • F.S. Blumm & Nils Frahm - 2X1=4 (2LP) Leiter

    F.S. Blumm & Nils Frahm - 2X1=4 (2LP) Leiter

    £20.00
    F.S.Blumm and Nils Frahm return with their fourth collaborative album: ‘2X1=4’ finds the duo unexpectedly exploring a dub-influenced universe, though in truth it’s one already familiar to both. F.S.Blumm, for instance, is co-founder of Quasi Dub Development, whose 2014 album, ‘Little-Twister vs Stiff-Neck’, featured Lady Ann and Lee Scratch Perry, while Frahm’s music – not least 2018’s ‘All Melody’ – has occasionally betrayed a fondness for the form’s associated studio techniques, though he concedes wryly that his approach has always been “a little bit more German” than his influences. F.S.Blumm, a revered mainstay of the German underground for over two decades, and Nils Frahm first met in the early 2000s. Frahm was a big fan of Blumm’s 2001 album, ‘Mondkuchen’– he refers to his fellow Berlin resident admiringly these days as “a vital brick in the Berlin Wall” – while Blumm was soon dazzled by Frahm’s studio set up. “Compared to mine,” he says, “it was like a space ship!” Soon they were working together on a variety of projects – including theatre pieces and animated films – and by 2010 they’d released their first collaborative album, ‘Music For Lovers Music Versus Time’. A second, ‘Music For Wobbling Music Versus Gravity’, followed in 2013, and a third, ‘Tag Eins Tag Zwei’, in 2016. ‘2X1=4’ is very different to its predecessors, but its final track, ‘Neckrub’, first took shape as they wound up work on ‘Tag Eins Tag Zwei’. “We had a certain sound in the back of our heads,” Blumm recalls, “which was influenced by these 80s rhythm machines, and we suddenly discovered a common love for dub.” Most of the album, therefore, was initially developed in 2016 during improvisation sessions recorded by Frahm to two-track cassette. “It was like we were running a combine harvester,” Blumm laughs, “so we could write our names on a single grain!” Afterwards, they worked on editing and overdubs in Frahm’s new studio at Berlin’s legendary Funkhaus. “We kept on making new songs out of these sessions and starting over and over again,” Frahm smiles. “It was a process that was time consuming but really fun.” Not that either of them is eager to claim a purist approach. “I love ending up somewhere where I’m surprised by myself or the machine or the person with whom I’m making music,” Blumm concludes, while Frahm emphasizes that, “None of this is too serious. The record is only as much of a dub record as the ones before are jazz records…”

  • Lorna Nelson - Deh Pon De Low 7" Ralph Holness TRS

    Lorna Nelson - Deh Pon De Low 7" Ralph Holness TRS

    £10.99
    A collaborative effort released on Ralph Holness' imprint back in 1984, TRS is pleased to announce the reissue of this proto-digi gem "Deh Pon De Low". Written by one of JA's finest, unrecognised songwriting talents, Carl 'Jackie' Estick and co-produced/arranged by Errol O'Meally. To top it off and seal the deal, this cherry is sung over by songstress Lorna Nelson. In the raw and unfiltered words of O'Meally, "Jamaicans will recognise that name (Ralph Holness) as the king of so-called 'Roots' Theatre for a number of years, based at The Ward Theatre in the heart of Parade, Downtown Kingston. Ralph was a real character and after dominating the theatre business producing broad raucous comedies that appealed to the masses and made him a fortune, he decided to make a foray into the real pool of sharks, music producing. Needless to say, I doubt if any of us, apart from whichever studio we used, got any money from Ralph, for our endeavours and it has been submerged in the rest of the morass of dues-paying that any young, starving striver in the business was doomed to go through in those days. Still, the tune doesn't sound too dusty". Ralph Holness had a passion for his work. If you didn't know him, you would think he was aggressive, but it was really a desire to make a production come together in the right way. When him talk is like thunder roll. Everybody talking bout "money-money" and everybody soon get maddy-maddy. Things nowadays get slacky-slacky and some a them a run from decency. Me say Lord woy, everything deh pon de low.

  • Witness - Mercy Gone / Witness ft Mr Williamz - Mercy Gone Part 2 7" Fruits Records

    Witness - Mercy Gone / Witness ft Mr Williamz - Mercy Gone Part 2 7" Fruits Records

    £8.99
    Probably one of the most sought-after Jamaican roots reggae tracks by record collectors, 'MERCY GONE' is both an obscure and iconic sound system tune. Originally performed by the equally obscure 1NY and Soul Syndicate, 'Mercy Gone' captures the essence of 70s roots reggae: a slow tempo with a bouncing uptempo skank, inventive drumming and a compelling bass line, a raw but powerful sound, and a plaintive voice whose emotion reflects the harsh reality of the sufferer's life. The 18th Parallel wanted to offer their own version of this classic, an original record that is now unavailable and estimated to be worth thousands of dollars. To do so, the producers found a young singer of only twenty years old with undeniable talent, but still unknown to the public: Witness. Originally from Swaziland, Philisiwe ‘Witness’ Lukhele delivers her own interpretation of ‘Mercy Gone’ on an original riddim by The 18th Parallel. Without trying to identically reproduce the original, Witness and The 18th Parallel offer a powerful and modernised recut that still is faithful to the aesthetics of the Jamaican sound of the 70s. Above all, they finally give sound systems the opportunity to play this anthem, which was previously inaccessible on a 7" single. The icing on the cake on the B-side: one of the most prominent DJs on the current British sound system scene, Mr. Williamz, takes over and mash up the dance! Rewind!

    Nina Girassóis Heavyweight Sound / Heavyweight Dub 7" Dubquake

    £11.99
    Over the years, international connexions and heavyweight releases have become Dubquake’s trademark. Nina Girassóis and Paulera join the label’s roaster with their pop infused roots reggae hit “Heavyweight Sound’. Two years after the release of the “Sao Paulo Raw Vibes” mixtape, O.B.F is” proud to shine the light on these two talented artists at the centre of the bustling Brazilian dub music scene. “Heavyweight Sound’ was premiered by Rico O.B.F during the popular “Lockdown Sessions” last spring. Produced by Paulera in 2012 and mixed by Rico at the Dubquake Studio in 2020, Nina Girassóis complements the track with her sweet voice, singing and raising awareness about the ongoing Brazilian social-economic crisis. The lyrics were written nearly ten years ago but resonate worldwide more than ever in today’s climate. The 100% Brazilian catchy melodies and deep bassline, reminiscent of the duo’s reggae roots influences, became one of our most requested dubplates over the past year. As the story has it, Biga*Ranx heard the track and loved it so much that he insisted on designing the artwork... Made for the people, demanded by the masses, “Heavyweight Sound” starts off the new Dubquake Records 2021 season with a bang. Get ready for a ton of new releases from all across the spectrum!

  • Winston Groovy / Laurel Aitken - Skinhead A Wreck The Town / Moon Rock 7" Aggrobeat AB049

    Winston Groovy / Laurel Aitken - Skinhead A Wreck The Town / Moon Rock 7" Aggrobeat AB049

    £10.49
    'Skinhead Wreck The Town / Moon Rock' is another highly collectable single produced by Laurel Aitken and was issued in 1969 as a blank label pre-release only. The song 'Skinhead Wreck The Town' on the A-side is often miscredited to Laurel Aitken, but in fact the vocal duties were done by none less than Winston Groovy. Later in his career Winston Groovy gained succes with songs like 'Please Don't Make Me Cry' (which was also covered by UB40) and with his adaption of The Commodores song 'Nightshift'. The song 'Moon Rock' on the flipside is a typical Laurel Aitken song like he wrote so many during those days. Although Aitken is often praised as the Godfather of Ska, his important contribution to the early days of reggae may not be overlooked either. Despite the great quality of both songs, this reissue is the first time since 1969 that both songs are available again in its original format. Exclusively for this reissue we have remastered both songs for vinyl to deliver the best possible sound quality. The single is pressed on recycled eco vinyl(!) and includes a heavy weight insert with liner notes. Format & package: 7" single Year of release: 2020 (reissued from 1969) Tracks: A Winston Groovy - Skinhead Wreck The Town B Laurel Aitken - Moon Rock

  • The Versatiles - Give It To Me / Tiger & The Versatiles - Hot 7" Aggrobeat

    The Versatiles - Give It To Me / Tiger & The Versatiles - Hot 7" Aggrobeat

    £10.00
    This single with Tiger and The Versatiles was originally released in 1971 in the United Kingdom by New Beat Records. Both songs were written and produced by Laurel Aitken and released during his 'High Priest of Reggae' era, when he put out new reggae singles almost on a weekly basis. This is the first official reissue and we pressed this one on recycled eco(!) vinyl and the single includes a 300grams insert with liner notes. Because the original master tapes are long time gone, we had to transfer the recordings from vinyl, a method which is often used to restore the loss of original sound recordings. Because of its analogue format, vinyl is ideally suited to do so. After transfer we remastered the recordings for vinyl. Format & package: 7" single Year of release: 2021 (reissued from 1971)

  • Born In A Car Crash - A Guide To Choice 1950s and 60s Rhythm and Blues 45s BOOK Long Road Society

    Born In A Car Crash - A Guide To Choice 1950s and 60s Rhythm and Blues 45s BOOK Long Road Society

    £25.00
    “Born In A Car Crash” is a guide to 1950s and 60s rhythm and blues 45s - artifacts of an incredibly fertile period of black American music and a time of signifi cant cultural upheaval. R&B was a constant thread through the complex tapestry of racial segregation, international confl ict, and the civil rights movement. The universal appeal of 1950s and 60s R&B continues to bring disparate groups of society together during incredibly divisive political times. “Born In A Car Crash” highlights essential tracks from an era of profound creativity, entrepreneurship, and inspiration. It aims to shine a light on the musicians, producers, and labels that leveraged everything they had to create music for the people.
