  • Ujahm & Zion Train - Pressure 7" Reggae Take Over

    Ujahm & Zion Train - Pressure 7" Reggae Take Over

    £8.99
    Reggae Take Over is championing new UK roots with this limited edition, hand-numbered 7” featuring Ujahm and Zion Train.
    Side A is the original roots version; a dread, atmospheric reggae anthem which respectfully nods to 80s UK acts such as Steel Pulse, Fabienne Miranda and Misty in Roots. Socially conscious lyrics shed light on the pressure we are living under.
    Side B features the Zion Train dub mix. The vocal is stripped down and interwoven with an echo-drenched swirl of synths and choppy melodies: all underpinned by the UK dub pioneers' trademark warm, analogue bass. The pressure builds and drops in a physical release for body and mind.

  • Java Java Java Java CD Get On Down

    Java Java Java Java CD Get On Down

    £13.99
    Dub as we know it begins here.
    Prior to 1973, there existed in Jamaica instrumental takes of songs—B-sides that were labeled “versions” —and vocal-less acetates produced as one-offs for sound systems to give their mic men something to toast over. But there was nothing that fit the radical mixing board athleticism and psychedelic soundscapes that are the trademarks of dub music. By the end of that year, however, the story had radically changed. Lee Perry's Rhythm Shower and Upsetters 14 Dub, aka Blackboard Jungle, Herman Chin-Loy's Aquarius Dub and Prince Buster's The Message Dubwise had all appeared on the scene, each to varying degrees exemplifying dub's radical take-off on the instrumental concept. However, it may have been Java Java Java Java, that broke the first ground. “To my knowledge,” producer Clive Chin confirms, “and I'm telling this from a true fact, at the time it came out there was no other album like it.”
    Although the debate will probably continue for as long as scholars of Jamaican music exist, there is no doubt that Java Java Java Java is one of the foundations of dub music.
  • Still Cool - Still Cool CD Digikiller

    Still Cool - Still Cool CD Digikiller

    £13.99
    At long last, the legendary unreleased Still Cool album! Producer Carl "Stereo" Fletcher had been planning this LP on his Uprising label since the late 1970's. In fact, a version of it was released in Lagos, Nigeria, but that pressing was apparently minute and now nearly impossible to find.* So, finally properly released nearly 40 years later, here it is. Still Cool, like Stereo and his Uprising label, were part of the vibrant musical arm of the 12 Tribes of Israel Rastafarian group in the 1970's. Still Cool regularly performed on 12 Tribes stage shows, just check the photos in our LP & CD jackets. Four of the ten tracks on this album were released as singles back in the day, including one ("Sweeter Music") credited only to Still Cool vocalist Frankie Diamond. The other six tracks have never been released until now. This is a fantastic 1970's roots harmony album that should appeal to fans of classic harmony a la The Abyssinians, Mighty Diamonds, Wailing Souls, Burning Spear, Culture and Bob Marley & The Wailers. The CD version includes six bonus tracks of alternate and extended mixes, culled from rare 45 and 12-inch singles, as well as longer/unedited versions of the 10 album tracks. Both the CD and LP layouts include incredible photos from of the musicians and producer from back in the day. One of our finest releases yet, we hope you enjoy this album as much as we do.
  • Kode9 - Escapology (Double Vinyl LP) Hyperdub

    Kode9 - Escapology (Double Vinyl LP) Hyperdub

    £21.99
    'Escapology’ - Kode9's first album since 2015's ‘Nothing’ – is the first audio document of a wider project, Astro-Darien, ongoing since last year. His most ambitious work yet as a multi-disciplinary artist, ‘Escapology’ is the soundtrack album to the sonic fiction Astro-Darien, which will be released in October on Hyperdub’s sub-label Flatlines.
    The music reconfigures Astro-Darien's tense, off-world atmospheres into slices of high definition, asymmetric club rhythms, woven through thrilling sound design and vertiginous sonics. 
    ‘Escapology’ is just one entry point into of the Astro-Darien universe, which had begun to surface in 2021 as a two-week audiovisual installation on the main dance floor at club space Corsica Studios in South London, and as a multi-channel diffusion on the 50 speaker Acousmonium at the invitation of INA-GRM in Paris, the institution founded in 1951 by the musique concrète pioneer Pierre Schaeffer, composer Pierre Henry and the engineer Jacques Poullin
  • KMD - Mr. Hood (Double Vinyl LP) Elektra/Traffic Entertainment Network MF DOOM

    KMD - Mr. Hood (Double Vinyl LP) Elektra/Traffic Entertainment Network MF DOOM

    £31.99
    KMD (Kausing Much Damage, or a positive Kause in a Much Damaged society) was a Hip Hop group in the early 90s perhaps best known for launching the career of acclaimed MC/Producer MF DOOM (known during his KMD tenure as Zev Love X). After guesting on 3rd Bass The Gas Face, the trio (Zev, brother Subroc, and Onyx) released the acclaimed and overlooked Mr. Hood full-length. Their political outlook was similar to the group Brand Nubian, who guested on Hood; however, the style was more comical and included a great deal of clips from old childrens recordings, mostly notably a sample of the Seaseme Street character Bert on the single Who Me? Cutting edge, ahead of its time production and skits from KMD and Stimulated Dummies (John Gamble and Mr. Dante Ross). Features the singles Peachfuzz, Who Me? and Nitty Gritty (feat. Brand Nubian). This is one Rap album that is not to be missed.
  • Pete Rock - The Return Of The SP1200 (Vinyl LP) Tru Soul Records

    Pete Rock - The Return Of The SP1200 (Vinyl LP) Tru Soul Records

    £29.99
    Never before released. 
    This all new Pete Rock release debuted on RSD in 2019! 3000 pressings only worldwide. 
    Pete Rock is widely recognized as one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time. His name is oft included in the pantheon of the greatest, alongside DJ Premier, RZA and J Dilla. In addition, Pete has one of the world’s most extensive vinyl collections, the sort of collection who’s size can only be estimate – and that estimate stands in excess of 100,000 LPs. 2019 saw the launch of Pete Rock’s own imprint, Tru Soul Records. And being a lover of all things vinyl, he’s decided that the label’s inaugural had to be for Record Store Day. Rock’s production forte is the melding of Jazz with early 90s East Coast boom bap, as demonstrated though his work with partner in rhyme CL Smooth. But there was a time before Pete met CL, a time before the world came to know Pete Rock & CL Smooth, a time when Pete was a 19 year old in his basement in Mount Vernon, NY making beats with his SP-1200. These are those beats. Released for the first time ever on “Return Of The SP-1200”.

  • Sundub - Spirits Eat Music (Vinyl LP) Easy Star Records

    Sundub - Spirits Eat Music (Vinyl LP) Easy Star Records

    £20.99

    SunDub is a Brooklyn-based five piece who expertly mixes classic reggae alongside soul and blues.

    The band is a testament to the power of inclusion, diversity, and unity - core values that were showcased on SunDub's debut album, Burden of Love (2019).

    That album racked up millions of streams and brought the band to the attention of their hometown reggae label, Easy Star Records, who picked up the band and has been working with them on this sophomore effort.

    This release is even stronger than the debut, with Sidney Mills (of Steel Pulse) working closely with the band to co-produce and co-write much of the material.

    The album features collaborations with Jamaican superstar Lutan Fyah as well as Peetah Morgan from the GRAMMY-winning Morgan Heritage.

  • Essential Artist Collection – The Skatalites (Double Vinyl LP/2CD) Trojan Records

    Essential Artist Collection – The Skatalites (Double Vinyl LP/2CD) Trojan Records

    £28.00
    During the early 1960’s, the sound of ska exploded upon Jamaica’s musical landscape, with the driving dynamic sound championed by arguably the greatest ensemble of musicians ever to have performed and recorded on the island.
    Fronted by legendary saxophonist Tommy McCook, the Skatalites also comprised a veritable who’s who of Kingston-based performers, their number including trombonist Don Drummond, tenor saxman Roland Alphonso, drumming supremo Lloyd Knibb and keyboard prodigy Jackie Mittoo.
    Following their creation in the summer of ’64, this powerhouse instrumental combo dominated the island’s music industry for 18 glorious months, the very best of their work produced by famed Treasure Isle Records boss, Arthur ‘Duke’ Reid.
    The best of their output for the celebrated producer is showcased on the ‘Essential Artist Collection’, which sees issue on both as a 2LP vinyl set and a double CD collection, both of which provide the best introduction yet to the music of the incredible, multi-talented and hugely influential Skatalites.
  • Essential Artist Collection – The Maytals (Double Vinyl LP/2CD) Trojan Records

    Essential Artist Collection – The Maytals (Double Vinyl LP/2CD) Trojan Records

    £28.99
    Led by the dynamic Frederick ‘Toots’ Hibbert, the Maytals are rightly regarded as one of the greatest singing trios in the history of Jamaican music. During an incredible recording career that spanned six decades, the group scored hit after hit on the island’s music charts, with their inimitable, unique blend of fervent gospel and downhome country seemingly impervious to changes in styles and fashion.  
    The best of their work, however, is widely regarded to be their rock steady and early reggae recordings for Leslie Kong’s revered Beverley’s Records during the late Sixties and early Seventies; a period that spawned groundbreaking work such as ’54 46’, ‘Monkey Man’ and ‘Do the Reggay’, to name but a few.
    The Essential Artist Collection brings together the very best of their output from this period, including the above tracks, along with numerous other classics, such as ‘Sweet And Dandy’, ‘Pressure Drop’ and ‘Night And Day’.
    Available as a 28 track double vinyl LP and a comprehensive 2CD compilation, both collections superbly demonstrate just why the unforgettable music of the Maytals will continued to be loved and revered for many years to come.
  • Viktor Vaughn - Vaudeville Villain (2xVinyl LP) Get On Down (USA IMPORT) MF DOOM

    Viktor Vaughn - Vaudeville Villain (2xVinyl LP) Get On Down (USA IMPORT) MF DOOM

    £37.99
    Legendary artist MF DOOM (aka Zev Love X of KMD) opened up a lyrical wormhole when he returned as the interdimensional MC, Viktor Vaughn, delivering one of his most unique releases in a career packed with distinction. Vaudeville Villain is a concept album with plenty of high comedy, street technology and hijinks, splashed artfully over next-school beats that move freely in spaces between Electronica and Hip Hop, all courtesy of Sound-Ink producers King Honey, Heat Sensor and Max Bill, with the exception of one track produced by RJD2. As the story of Vaudeville Villain goes, a time-travel mishap left Viktor Vaughn stuck in early 90s NYC with no choice but to battle other MCs and carry out side-hustles in order to repair his time machine and get back to the future. All tracks feature original lyrics by DOOM, with a few notable guest appearances from M. Sayyid (Anti-Pop Consortium), Lord Sear, Apani B Fly MC, Louis Logic, and more.
  • KMD - Black Bastards (Double Vinyl LP) Metal Face Records MF DOOM

    KMD - Black Bastards (Double Vinyl LP) Metal Face Records MF DOOM

    £30.00
    Originally scheduled for release back in 1994 but scrapped due to controversial cover art, K.M.D.'s follow-up to their debut Mr. Hood was considered to be one of the Holy Grail records in the annals of hip-hop history. The death of group member Sub-Roc in a car accident squashed the future of K.M.D. shortly after it was recorded. Employing ideals and samples from the album The Blue Guerilla by Kain of the Last Poets, the tone of this record was to be dramatically different than their first, which was lighthearted and playful while still spreading a message about racial stereotypes. Volatile yet poignant tracks like "What a Ni__a Know" and "Bl_ck B_st_rds!" are hip-hop fireballs. Subjects like alcoholism ("Sweet Premium Wine"), drug use ("Smokin' That S*#%"), and women ("Plumskinzz") were all touched upon with incendiary tones. The sound of the record is very raw and sounds unfinished due to Elektra shelving the project, but it doesn't take away from the magic that would have made this a suitable follow-up.
  • Pete Rock - The Return Of The SP1200 Vol. 2  (Vinyl LP) Tru Soul Records

    Pete Rock - The Return Of The SP1200 Vol. 2 (Vinyl LP) Tru Soul Records

    £29.99
    Pete Rock is widely recognised as one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time. His name is oft included in the pantheon of the greatest, alongside DJ Premier, RZA and J Dilla. In addition, Pete has one of the world's most extensive vinyl collections, the sort of collection whose size can only be estimated, and that estimate stands in excess of 100,000 LPs. In 2019 Rock launched his own imprint, Tru Soul Records, with the release of Return Of The SP-1200 which debuted exclusively on RSD 2019. For Black Friday, Pete Rock goes back to his roots - the SP-1200 and his vinyl – to debut Return Of The SP-1200 Volume 2.

  • Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari Tales Of Mozambique (Double Vinyl LP/CD) Soul Jazz

    Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari Tales Of Mozambique (Double Vinyl LP/CD) Soul Jazz

    £28.99
    Following on from the recent super-deluxe box set edition of The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari's 'Grounation', Soul Jazz Records are releasing a new edition of the groups celebrated 'Tales of Mozambique'. This new limited-edition is released as a one-off pressing purple vinyl double album and a one-off purple CD. Sleeve design also comes as a new purple version.
    Soul Jazz Records are releasing Count Ossie and The Mystic Revelation’s seminal 1975 album Tales of Mozambique in an expanded double album/single CD/digital format, fully remastered and with the inclusion of two bonus rare single-only tracks, full sleevenotes, exclusive photographs and interview.
    Count Ossie is the central character in the development of Rastafarian roots music, nowadays an almost mythical and iconic figure. His importance in bringing Rastafarian music to a populist audience is matched only by Bob Marley’s promotion of the faith internationally in the 1970s.
    Count Ossie’s drummers performed on the first commercially released single to integrate Rastafarian traditional music with popular music: the vocal group The Folkes Brothers’ groundbreaking song ‘Oh Carolina’, recorded for producer Prince Buster in 1959. In 1966 his drummers greeted the momentous arrival of Haile Selassie at Kingston airport.
    His legendary jam sessions up in his Rastafarian compound in the hills of Wareika, Kingston, are famous for the many Jamaican musicians who attended including The Skatalites players – Roland Alphonso, Don Drummond, Johnny Moore, Lloyd Knibbs – and many others.
    The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari formed in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1970, a union of Count Ossie’s Rastafarian drummers – variously known as his African Drums, Wareikas or his Afro-Combo – and the saxophonist Cedric Im Brooks’ horns group, The Mystics.
    The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari are the defining group in bringing authentic Rastafarian rhythms into the collective consciousness of popular music, their unique music is at once rooted in the deep traditions and rituals of traditional drumming and chanting alongside a forward-thinking, even avant-garde, artistry influenced by the likes of John Coltrane, Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders and other pioneering African-American jazz artists radicalised and charged by the civil rights movement of the 1960s.
    Tales of Mozambique is a truly unique and fascinating ground-breaking album.

  • Hieroglyphic Being - There Is No Acid In This House (Double Vinyl LP / 2CD) Soul Jazz Records

    Hieroglyphic Being - There Is No Acid In This House (Double Vinyl LP / 2CD) Soul Jazz Records

    £26.99

    ‘There is no Acid in this House’ is Hieroglyphic Being’s stunning third solo album on Soul Jazz Records, a resolute and powerful statement of Jamal Moss’s raw, vital, pioneering, Afro-Futurist electronic (dance) music - full of twisted pulsating acid house, machines and ambience.

    On his new album Moss once-again draws upon the vast scope of experimentation that has defined Chicago’s musical universe over the last half a century – from the birth of house music with the pioneers Ron Hardy, Marshall Jefferson, Lil Louis and others to the radical avant-garde jazz legacy of the city - The Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, The Art Ensemble of Chicago and Sun Ra.

    Chicago’s musical universe continues to push-further forward today with artists such as Hieroglyphic Being, Angel Bat Dawid, Makaya McCraven, and labels such as International Anthem label and Hieroglyphic Being’s own Mathematics, all continuing to explore radical new music while drawing upon the city’s decidedly Afro-futurist lineage.

    Jamal Moss, aka Hieroglyphic Being, remains at all-times a radical one-off musical explorer, a resolute pioneer of an avant-garde dance music aesthetic taking lineage from the founding fathers of acid house such as Ron Hardy and Adonis, and pushing the musical form to its own limits, adding his own harder almost industrial edge to this unique sound, which Moss sometimes describes as ‘Outsider House’ or, referencing the earlier avant-garde musical resident and pioneer, Sun Ra - ‘Rhythmic Cubism’ and ‘Cosmic Be-Bop’.

    Hieroglyphic Being’s music crosses many boundaries and has led to remixes of a wide and diverse list of artists from St Vincent to Hans-Joachim Roedelius (the pioneering German electronic composer and member of Cluster), King Gizzard and the Lizard Gizzard to Adonis and many more. In similar fashion his music has appeared on Ghostly/Spectral, Warp, Ninja, Axis and his own Mathematics Recordings.

    Jamal Moss first began working with Soul Jazz Records in 2015 and has released two solo albums (‘The Acid Documents’ in 2015, ‘The Red Notes’ in 2018) as well as a third album under the guise of Africans with Mainframes (with Nolan Reusse in 2017).

    Mikey General - Only Jah Know / Prince Alla - Born To Be Free 7" Poor Man's Friend

    £9.99

    The latest offering from Poor Man’s Friend Records, a freshly constructed 45 featuring Jamaican reggae and dancehall icon Mikey General on the A side.

    The instrumental track is a heavy relick of the classic ‘Baldhead riddim”, smoked out guitar stabs collide with big spring reverbs and vintage organ tones to create a distinctly mid seventies roots sound.

    Mikey's powerful voice effortlessly fills out the space left for it in the sparse arrangement, delivering deep conscious lyrics that send shivers down the spine. 

    Mikey General is a staple artist in reggae and dancehall having voiced prolifically since the age of sixteen, his first break being given to him by Ruddy Silence in Jamaica, he is however perhaps best known for his great works alongside veteran artist Luciano. Mikey has voiced many iconic records during his long career.This includes tunes for Saxon sound, Coxsone International and for Phillip Burrell as part of the great ”Xterminator Crew”.
    He is well known for his signature vocal styles and long standing dedication to the promotion of positive lyrics and the Rastafari faith. 
    On the flip is the legendary Prince Alla singing over an original riddim track, in signature Prince Alla fashion he has written an inspired track with a great conscious message.

  • Vibronics Ft. Lance Hume - 30 Strings (7" Vinyl) Scoops

    Vibronics Ft. Lance Hume - 30 Strings (7" Vinyl) Scoops

    £9.99

    SCOOPS Records announce a brand new release and a brand new collaboration. Surely we all love the sound of the sitar on a super-heavy dub beat? After an exhaustive summer festival season, it really seems this is the case with the track ’30 Strings’ causing an almighty stir whenever it was played by Vibronics throughout 2022.

    Vibronics music has always been known for its unique atmosphere and layering of different sounds, so when it came to a musical collaboration, the shimmering sonics of the sitar were really a no-brainer. The beat was built to show how dub music progresses, moving forward but without forgetting its Jamaican studio roots. The B-side dub all-analogue dub mix is deep, raw and crazy and not for the faint hearted .. but it absolutely is for the Sound System.

Is there a better way to celebrate being back on tour in 2022 than with this travelling anthem ‘Pon Di Road’ penned by new vocalist Richie Culture?

    The tune was mixed and produced in the Vibronics Dub Cupboard studio in Leicester, and after receiving continual play on the world’s top dub sound systems, the time came to unleash the great voice of Richie Culture on the world. Vibronics was feeling kinda retro the week this was mixed and pulled out some original 90’s drum machines & synths to capture some authentic & classic UK Dub sounds for this hard stepping beat.

    Disco Reggae Rockers (2LP Ltd Yellow or Black Vinyl / 2CD) Soul Jazz Records

  • Horace Andy - Midnight Rocker (Gold or Black Vinyl LP) On-U Sound

    Horace Andy - Midnight Rocker (Gold or Black Vinyl LP) On-U Sound

    From: £23.99

    BACK IN STOCK!

    10 brand new recordings from the legendary Jamaican singer and longtime Massive Attack collaborator, Horace Andy, produced by Adrian Sherwood. Midnight Rocker has been approached in a similar fashion to the late-career quality that Sherwood coaxed out of Lee "Scratch" Perry with the Rainford and Heavy Rain albums, assembling a crack team of players and spending many months perfecting performance, arrangements and mixing.

    The result is a remarkable suite of tracks that sparkle with superb musicianship, carefully crafted production and Horace's beautiful vocals. The material includes revisiting and updating a few classic Horace Andy songs such as 'Mr. Bassie', but the bulk of the tracks are brand new compositions with contemporary messages, such as 'Watch Over Them' and 'Materialist'. The pair have also versioned 'Safe From Harm', a much-loved early single by the group that Andy is most associated with ' Massive Attack. 

    'On-U Sound are very proud to present a truly wonderful album with one of the all-time great singer-songwriters in the rich history of Jamaican music, Horace Andy. This is a true gold star performance, and I'm very proud of it.' Adrian Sherwood.

    Choice of two formats: Limited Edition Gold Vinyl / Black Vinyl.
