Various Artists - Out On The Floor Part 2
In November 1979 Neil Rushton's Inferno label released a Northern Soul compilation album "Out On The Floor Tonight" from tracks it had issued on 45s. The LP came out with no fuss, and in the mad frenzy of all things Northern Soul at the time it was issued, sold OK, and was soon forgotten as other new releases came along. In the 1980's, UK released Rare Soul compilations became the flavour of the month and "Out On The Floor Tonight" quietly built up a following, before being hailed as a classic of the genre towards the end of the decade by a new Mod scene and the UK "On The Run" Scooterist juggernaut. In more recent times, the Soul Soul renaissance has seen the album hailed as iconic, and several leading movers and shakers on the movement have praised the LP as being their perfect introduction to the strange but wonderful world of Northern Soul. Many people are acknowledging Out On The Floor Tonight", the first model, as their all time favourite Northern Soul album. In the spirit of that, Part 2 features 3 tracks also featured in Part 1 - the other 13 hand picked tracks (no fillers here) are all time classics too. Two tracks, Luther Ingram Orchestra "Exus Trek" and The Crow "Your Autumn Of Tomorrow" are featured in Elaine Constantine's film "Northern Soul". This really is "16 Classic Northern Soul Floor Fillers", so all the signs are that this much delayed "follow up" will earn the same credibility as the first release.

The original process of 're-mixing records' was intended to provide an alternative listening experience which had been optimized for people who went out to dance at Discos. John was one of the early pioneers who loved music, understood his craft and HAD RESPECT FOR THE CREATIVE WORK from which his mixes were derived” Patrick Adams – Super Producer. Writer of more than 30 Gold and Platinum records and back to back winner of ASCAP Songwriter of the year award 1996/1997 This compilation is John Morales’ third for BBE.

Various Artists - Mecca 45
BLACKPOOL MECCA, throughout the mid-to-late seventies, defined a new movement in rare soul that would become known as “crossover” and that drew thousands of fans from across the country for it’s weekly modern soul gatherings. It was the only venue to rival the enormity of Wigan Casino and, with hindsight, was perhaps the No. 1 venue to hear the latest and the best American imports played by headline DJs Ian Levine and Colin Curtis. Its creative playlists at the Saturday seaside sessions were progressive and unique to its skyline Highland Room: “it was like taking an escalator ride to New York”. The “sound” of the Mecca still resonates today thanks, in no small part, to its forward-thinking DJs and the quality of the ground-breaking music that fused Northern Soul with New York Disco and heralded the Jazz/funk scene in the UK.

Various Artists - JOHN MORALES PRES. THE M & M MIXES VOL 3. PART B
The original process of 're-mixing records' was intended to provide an alternative listening experience which had been optimized for people who went out to dance at Discos. John was one of the early pioneers who loved music, understood his craft and HAD RESPECT FOR THE CREATIVE WORK from which his mixes were derived” Patrick Adams – Super Producer. Writer of more than 30 Gold and Platinum records and back to back winner of ASCAP Songwriter of the year award 1996/1997 This compilation is John Morales’ third for BBE. Few can match his contributions to the world of Dance Music be it soul, funk, disco, to today’s house music. John Morales is considered one of the true legends of the mix. And his work some thirty years later continues to be cutting edge and inspiring. His epic mix of Universal Robot Bands boogie anthem “Barely Breakin Even” is the source from which BBE Records got its name.

Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Disco, Boogie and bounce! A1 Teddy Pendergrass - Only You (M&M You Got What I Need Mix) A2 Loleatta Holloway - Hit And Run (M&M I Ain’t Sharing Mix) B1 The Jones Girls - You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else (M&M I Don’t Wanna Do It, Late Night Mix) B2 Marvin Gaye – I Want You (M&M Breakdown Beat Mix) All tracks are exclusive extended vinyl versions "

Various Artists - 6T'S:Rhythm n' Soul
For those of you who can remember RnB clubs, when it actually stood for RnB ( Rhythm n' Blues), well this is for you. Dating back to the 60's, starting in London, then eventually working it's way up north, these clubs represented the fuse between 'British' & 'American' music. These places were usually found in back street alleys and always had a seedy reputation, but the sounds played were just music you never heard anywhere else. Pure nostalgia, brilliant records, if anybody wants to here where the 'Northern' scene took off, we'll check this little beauty out!!!.

Because this is actually sanctioned and put out by De Wolfe then they have access to not only the mastertapes, but also the unreleased/instrumental cuts too.

Fantastic Fabric mix from the brilliant Ben UFO...Emerging from the moody introversion of Mix Mup’s “Before (Dub),” the mix starts in earnest with an aggressively distorted cut from Delroy Edwards, which bleeds into the off-kilter rhythms and sub-bass intensity of an exclusive from Pev & Kowton. From there we’re thrown into the bizarre future-tribal world of DJ Sotofett remixing Tim ‘Love’ Lee’s “The Tortoise” and onwards through tracks and decades, as Chicago Skyway’s “It’s OK” combines with K-Hand, Fluxion, Jam City, Pearson Sound and Mr. Fingers. There are truly inspired transitions here

Fantastic addition to the Fabriclive series from Pangaea. With his productions having traditionally shared an affiliation with the darker end of the sonic spectrum, it comes as no surprise to find the confrontational palettes of Psyk and Shifted sitting alongside the gauzy textures of Lee Gamble and distressed junglism of Pev & Kowton, over the course of a compelling 76 minutes.

Various Artists - Electro Convulsive Therapy
f you're into your '80s cold/no wave filth then Medical's Electroconvulsive Therapy series are the tickets for you! The fearless reissue label have put out seriously definitive collections of the post-punk era, ranging from vocal-led synth-pop to more industrial and cavernous proto-techno beats, and this third chapter of the ET branch - an RSD 2015 special - is another gorgeous ten tracks of rare-as-hell experimental music from the golden era of creativity. You can hear shreds of Joy Division's massive influence on 80's music in tracks like "Who Cares" by Leidenschaft or "Betrayal" by Secession. However, there's also plenty of disco/boogie-filtered action on cuts like "Look!" by VUD and "The Cities Of The Red Night", another track from Leidenschaft. It's a compilation for romantics, a sector of society who is in love with that era's sense of bittersweet melancholia. Lovely.

Presented here are the complete surviving recordings from four of Festival's brightest (and most criminally under-recognised) talents - The 5, Toni McCann, The Black Diamonds and The Pogs. Collecting 26 hard-to-find-(and outrageously expensive!)-on-original-vinyl titles, this inaugural release from Australian Reissue Label Playback Records builds on the work begun by compilations like Down Under Nuggets, Ugly Things, and Of Hopes & Dreams & Tombstones. Remastered from the original master tapes (where they survive!); almost half the recordings here are being made available on CD for the first time. Features acknowledged genre classics like as Toni McCann's blistering girl-rocker "No" and The Black Diamonds' garage-punk classic "I Want, Need, Love You"; along with a few special bonus tracks. 28-page booklet features definitive liner notes with quotes from new interviews with the artists!

After Taboo (Vol. 1) and Fever (Vol. 2) follows Summertime. “Written by George Gershwin and his brother Ira for their opera Porgy & Bess in 1934, this song has become part of the American Songbook and been covered in many styles and genres. From Rodney And The Blazers' upbeat surf'strumental shaker to the sweet and soulful Sam Cooke, from the Rock`n´Roll stroller by Rick Nelson that inspired Deeo Purple's Black Night, to the latin-infused intro by Edmundo Ross.“

Drawing from major label budgets and homemade cassette distributed circumstances alike, The Microcosmdemonstrates a depth of peace profound to behold, and clearly expands the boundaries.

Various Artists - Welcome To Zamrock! Vol 1: How Zambia’s Liberation Led To A Rock Revolution 1972-77 (BOOK + CD)
Explore Zambia’s liberation and its impact on the country’s rock revolution. The book, written by Eothen Alapatt and Leonard Koloko is the first investigation into the Zamrock scene, and is filled with original record artwork and rarely-seen photos of Zamrock’s best ensembles. By the mid-1970s, the Southern African nation known as the Republic of Zambia had fallen on hard times. Though the country’s first president Kenneth Kaunda had thrown off the yoke of British colonialism, the new federation found itself under his self-imposed, autocratic rule. Conflict loomed on all sides of this landlocked nation. Kaunda protected Zambia from war, but his country descended into isolation and poverty. This is the environment in which the ’70s rock revolution that has come to be known as Zamrock flourished. Fuzz guitars were commonplace, as were driving rhythms as influenced by James Brown’s funk as Jimi Hendrix’s rock predominated. Musical themes, mainly sung in the country’s constitutional language, English, were often bleak. Only a small number of the original Zamrock godfathers that remained in the country survived through the late ’90s. This was not a likely scene to survive - but it did. Welcome To Zamrock!, presented in two volumes, is an overview of its most beloved ensembles, and a trace of its arc from its ascension, to its fall, to its resurgence.

Jumbo's Adam Gillison says "16 track CD featuring Musi-O-Tunya, Witch, Dr. Footswitch, Amanaz, Ngozi Family and more, along with a hardback book chronicling the extraordinary story of Zambia's rock scene in the 1970s. Clearly the result of a huge work of research, the book also includes many pictures of the artists and the records."

Various Artists - Soul Jazz Records Presents: VENEZUELA 70: Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth
VENEZUELA 70: Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth - Venezuelan Experimental Rock In The 1970s. A look at the ground breaking experimental rock music made in Venezuela and created in the 1970s, during a time when the country was both a modern cultural and economic powerhouse in Latin America on account of wealth from its vast oil supplies. Whilst much of 1960s Venezuelan rock music emulated British and USA styles, the 1970s saw the evolution of a new generation of creative artists such as Vytas Brenner, Angel Rada, Pablo Schneider and Miguel Angel Fuster, who all explored the possibilities of mixing together rock with elements of electronica, funk, jazz and Latin rhythms simultaneously exploring their links with Venezuelan roots music. These Venezuelan artists looked to the future while exploring their country’s own musical heritage to create a new cultural identity. Similarities can be drawn with then contemporary movements around the world, such as the Trópicalia and post-Trópicalia 1970s scene in Brazil of Os Mutantes, Novos Baianos, Secos e Molhados (all of which feature on Soul Jazz Records’ earlier ‘Brazil 70’). A similar parallel can be made in Europe with the experimental German groups of the 1970s (Can, Amon Duul, Harmonia, Neu, all featured on Soul Jazz Records’ ‘Deutsche Electronische Musik’), who deconstructed and reconstructed the links between rock music and electronics to define a new German cultural identity. Most of the artists featured on ‘Venezuela 70’ remain practically unknown outside of Venezuela’s borders and yet their progressive, forward-thinking music is some of the most sophisticated in the world - a stunning ‘melting pot’ mix of underground rock, synthetic electronics, funk, jazz and Latin American rhythms, all of which explored new sounds and broke down musical boundaries to create a distinct and unique Venezuelan music and cultural identity.

Various Artists - Welcome To Zamrock! Vol 2: How Zambia’s Liberation Led To A Rock Revolution 1972-1977 (BOOK + CD)
Explore Zambia’s liberation and its impact on the country’s rock revolution. The book, written by Eothen Alapatt and Leonard Koloko is the first investigation into the Zamrock scene, and is filled with original record artwork and rarely-seen photos of Zamrock’s best ensembles. By the mid-1970s, the Southern African nation known as the Republic of Zambia had fallen on hard times. Though the country’s first president Kenneth Kaunda had thrown off the yoke of British colonialism, the new federation found itself under his self-imposed, autocratic rule. Conflict loomed on all sides of this landlocked nation. Kaunda protected Zambia from war, but his country descended into isolation and poverty. This is the environment in which the ’70s rock revolution that has come to be known as Zamrock flourished. Fuzz guitars were commonplace, as were driving rhythms as influenced by James Brown’s funk as Jimi Hendrix’s rock predominated. Musical themes, mainly sung in the country’s constitutional language, English, were often bleak. Only a small number of the original Zamrock godfathers that remained in the country survived through the late ’90s. This was not a likely scene to survive - but it did. Welcome To Zamrock!, presented in two volumes, is an overview of its most beloved ensembles, and a trace of its arc from its ascension, to its fall, to its resurgence.

Various Artists - Don't Be Bad! 60s Punk Recorded In Texas
Texas-based Huey P Meaux hit paydirt with Sir Doug’s ‘She’s About A Mover’ in early 1965. The maverick producer immediately threw out a cattle call for the next bunch of teenage longhairs who could deliver him a hit. That didn’t happen, but over the next few years he amassed a litany of superb grass roots punk and rock’n’roll recordings, spread across his Tribe, Pacemaker, Pic 1, Ventural, Capri imprints and others. While there were occasional visitors from out-of-state, the bulk of Meaux’s charges naturally hail from the motherlode of Texas, ground zero for the raunchiest, gnarliest 60s punk. Extensive research into Huey Meaux’s rarely tapped vault has resulted in a power-packed set list guaranteed to impress even the most hardened garage collector. Master tape sound on classics including Barry & Life’s ‘Top-Less Girl’, Destiny’s Children ‘Fall Of The Queen’ and the Passions’ ‘Lively One’ guarantees a punchy listen; superb unreleased sides from the likes of the Driving Wheels and Sands add major appeal. The packed booklet spills the full beans on the amazing contents.

London’s releases for 1966 reflected the way music trends were moving mid-decade. There were soul singles aplenty and, as the year progressed, a deeper investment in the proto-psychedelic rock that we now know as garage. For all that, London’s biggest hits of the year came courtesy of old standby Roy Orbison and producer Phil Spector, the latter bringing the label its greatest success with Ike & Tina Turner’s ‘River Deep – Mountain High’, which ends the CD on a high.

Various Artists - Welcome To Zamrock! Vol 2: How Zambia’s Liberation Led To A Rock Revolution 1972-1977
Explore Zambia’s liberation and its impact on the country’s rock revolution. The book, written by Eothen Alapatt and Leonard Koloko is the first investigation into the Zamrock scene, and is filled with original record artwork and rarely-seen photos of Zamrock’s best ensembles. By the mid-1970s, the Southern African nation known as the Republic of Zambia had fallen on hard times. Though the country’s first president Kenneth Kaunda had thrown off the yoke of British colonialism, the new federation found itself under his self-imposed, autocratic rule. Conflict loomed on all sides of this landlocked nation. Kaunda protected Zambia from war, but his country descended into isolation and poverty. This is the environment in which the ’70s rock revolution that has come to be known as Zamrock flourished. Fuzz guitars were commonplace, as were driving rhythms as influenced by James Brown’s funk as Jimi Hendrix’s rock predominated. Musical themes, mainly sung in the country’s constitutional language, English, were often bleak. Only a small number of the original Zamrock godfathers that remained in the country survived through the late ’90s. This was not a likely scene to survive - but it did. Welcome To Zamrock!, presented in two volumes, is an overview of its most beloved ensembles, and a trace of its arc from its ascension, to its fall, to its resurgence.

Düsseldorf is the advanced hometown of most German electronic bands. The capital of North Rhine-Westphalia became the capital of an analogue electronic movement from the early 70s to the mid-80s. Influence and atmosphere of the famous Düsseldorf Art Academy is partly providing profound background for many of these bands. Electronic music evolved from the then popular prog rock and became a worldwide genre of its own. This is the sonic account of the city’s most relevant output of bands such as La Düsseldorf, NEU!, DAF, Rheingold, Der Plan, Die Krupps and many more.

Various Artists - Aloha Got Soul
‘Aloha Got Soul’ encompasses a vibrant era of contemporary music made in Hawai’i during the 1970s to the mid-1980s as jazz, rock, funk, disco and R&B co-existed alongside Hawaiian folk music. Hawai’i’s identity had undergone huge change: statehood into America in ‘59 and the Vietnam War were the backdrop as Hawai’i’s youth found inspiration in a new wave of international music led initially by The Beatles and Stones and, later, by US R&B bands like Earth Wind & Fire and Tower Of Power. Garage bands flourished during the ‘60s and, by the ‘70s, live music was at its peak. W aikīkī was filled with clubs: The Point After, Infinity’s, Hawaiian Hut, Spats and more. For the artists of the ‘70s, the climate for music changed rapidly during the mid- ‘80s as DJ culture grew and live venues shut down. Hawai’i’s R&B era shone brightly and relatively briefly but, despite brilliant musicians, regular gigs and LP releases, most of the music barely made it to the mainland. Thanks largely to Aloha Got Soul’s Roger Bong, a new interest in this fertile era of Hawaiian music has grown, culminating in this new compilation of overlooked gems. ‘Aloha Got Soul’ is compiled and annotated by Bong and features rare photos and original artwork.

The piercing sounds of Logos’ ‘Glass’ (forthcoming on Mumdance’s Different Circles label) juxtaposes perfectly with Tectonic boss Pinch’s potent ‘Water Bomb’ and forthcoming dubs from Untold and Acre. The middle section of the mix acts as a short production showcase from Mumdance himself; three striking collaborations with Logos feature (‘In Reverse PIV’ is of particular note).

Chicago was awash in independent record labels during the late 50's and early 60's, hoping to channel the same big beat heat that kept the Chess and Vee-Jay logos on top locally. unlike many of their fly-by-night competitors, Profile Records landed a national hit with Junior Wells' "Little By Little". The label debuted in 1958 with pop crooner Johnny Doray's "One Of These Days", and closed up shop three years later with "Watcha Gonna Do", a self-produced single by transplanted Sun rockabilly Hayden Thompson. Complete liner notes enclosed. 20 tracks.

Various Artists - Like I Do - Great British Record Labels: Oriole
Oriole Records’ somewhat convoluted history began in the mid 1920s, which actually makes them one of the UK’s earliest record labels, although they had periods of inactivity during the 30s and 40s. They were entirely unrelated to the American Oriole label. The Oriole imprint was resurrected again in 1950, initially with a se­ries of UK and European Jazz 78s, which were soon augmented by licensed-in recordings from the American Mercury label. Their deal with Mercury provided success with releases by artists like Frankie Laine, Patti Page, Georgia Gibbs, Vic Damone and Billy Daniels, and by the mid 50s Oriole were actively recording home-grown artists in search of their own hits, which successes are where this compilation is derived from.

Various Artists - Wayfaring Strangers: Cosmic American
As progenitor and contemptuous poster boy for the music that came to be Cosmic American, Gram Parsons found himself mired in a recording career spent mostly in scouting the perimeters of chart success. “He hated country-rock,” Parsons collaborator Emmylou Harris would later reflect. “He thought that bands like the Eagles were pretty much missing the point.” Parsons had been orbiting the idea of Cosmic American Music for some time. In ‘68, he’d parted ways with the Byrds and was looking to take air with a new project. “It’s basically a Southern soul group playing country and gospel-oriented music with a steel guitar” he told Melody Maker, on the subject of The Flying Burrito Brothers. So it was that when A&M’s Burrito Brothers debut The Gilded Palace of Sin made it to shelves in February of 1969, early adherents to the Cosmic American gospel were already echoing its message from areas flanking Gram Parsons’ Southern California hills and canyons. Country-rock became “the dominant American rock style of the 1970s,” as Peter Doggett’s comprehensive Are You Ready for the Country put it much later. Wayfaring Strangers: Cosmic American Music picks up and dusts off golden ingots from the dollar-bin detritus of that domination, to reconstruct events as seen from the genre’s real Wild West—America’s one-off private press label substructure.

Various Artists - Hanoi Masters - War Is A Wound, Peace Is A Scar
The first volume of Glitterbeat's new series of releases: Hidden Musics. Each Hidden Musics release will feature un-mediated "field" recordings of lesser-known global music traditions. "Hanoi Masters: War is a Wound, Peace is Scar" is a haunting audio document recorded in the summer of 2014 by Grammy-award winning producer Ian Brennan (Tinariwen, Malawi Mouse Boys, The Good Ones). The sepia-tinged songs are sung and played live and direct by elderly Vietnamese musicians using half-forgotten traditional instruments. These musicians all have deep personal connections to the upheavals of the Vietnam War and the album's mesmerizing mood navigates the blurred line between raw beauty and muted sadness. 40 years after the end of the Vietnam War, a war these Hanoi musicians still call the "American War", the wounds and scars of that era are ever-present. "Hanoi Masters" is an album of cautious healing and an unforgettable meditation on conflict, resistance, collective memory, and the longing for what has been lost.

The tracks have been remastered and restored and some are presented on vinyl for the first time after many years. "Sugar's Delight" is the title track where the album name comes from, an easygoing "Pachanga" where you can hear the unmistakable sound of Ray Barretto "Hard Hands" on congas. You'll probably say "what's new?", exactly, not too much but this is very soulful music that will make you move your hips and it is necessary in understanding what would come later on; boogaloo and salsa. Our recommendation would be to get the Mojitos going and dance!

2014's vinyl reissues of "Black Symbol presents Handsworth Explosion" and "Black Symbol present Handsworth Explosion II" LPs collected on one CD. It's hard to overestimate the importance of what Black Symbol did for their local community, in Birmingham's Handsworth neighbourhood, by providing bands with studio time at the well equipped Outlaw Studio and then releasing many of the finished results on the two original vinyl LPs. They have left us with a unique snapshot of the Handsworth scene in the early eighties; a scene that was at its creative peak but would very soon almost entirely disappear. It's never too late to discover talent and hopefully this CD release will indeed open the eyes and hearts of many to the great bands and singers featured: Sceptre, Zephaniah, Truths And Rights, Gerald Love, Mystic Foundation, Benjamin Zephaniah, Black Knight, Man From the Hills and last, but by no means least, Black Symbol themselves. The music is mostly roots reggae, but the tracks also provide a great deal of variety whilst maintaining a high quality threshold.

Various Artists - Golden Torch 1969-1973
The original Torch building, on Hose Street in Tunstall, dated back to 1824, when it started out life as a church before becoming a roller-skating arena and then a cinema. It was finally bought by local entrepreneur Chris Burton in 1965 who turned it into a cabaret club promoting star turns of the day. It wasn’t until 1969 that a regular soul night began, hosted by budding DJ Keith Minshull. By 1972 the All-Nighters had taken over establishing the Torch as the country’s No.1 soul venue. A uniquely themed set featuring legendary Northern Soul tracks from the playlist of ground breaking soul jocks Keith Minshull, Johnny Beggs, Colin Curtis, Alan Day et al at the Golden Torch. “The greatest reaction the club has ever given is to Major Lance, 9th December 1972. That was the night he recorded the ‘live’ album of his greatest hits: it was also the night that he broke the existing gate record. There were almost as many people outside trying to get in as there were inside.” Chris Burton. An important collection from the club that forged the sound track to Northern Soul.

Bunny Lee’s Flying Cymbals or flyers rhythms dominated the Dancehalls and the charts during 1974 and 1975. The style based around the Philadelphia disco or the Philly Bump, the sound of an open and closed hi-hat was not necessarily novel but Striker’s innovations of bringing a number of different elements into play most certainly was. Johnny Clarke’s interpretation of Earl Zero’s ‘None Shall Escape the Judgement’ not only opens this se but also opened the floodgates for the flyers style.

Various Artists - Remembering Mountains (Unheard Songs By Karen Dalton)
Karen Dalton (1937-1993) recorded two studio albums during her lifetime, neither of which contain any songs she wrote. By the good graces of legendary guitarist Peter Walker, who oversees Karen's Estate, we are gifted with these lost lyrics, now given voice by other great women of song. Featuring Laurel Halo, Sharon Van Etten, Julia Holter, Isobel Campbell, Josephine Foster and more.

Jumbo's Nick Fraser says "Karen Dalton recorded just 2 studio albums during her lifetime, neither of which contained songs written by her. That is hard to believe when you hear this album with interpretations of her lyrics by artists including Sharon Van Etten and Isobel Campbell. The songs are all wonderful but if you are not in the mood for beautiful music, just read the words on the cover. "

Various Artists - Greater Manchester Punk 1977 – 1981
A compilation of 14 rare and previously unreleased punk / post punk gems from the lesser well known bands of the Manchester punk scene. The majority were usually the support acts for the more established acts such as Joy Division and Buzzcocks and some band members went on to legendary status with later bands ( Mike Joyce, The Hoax ). The DIY ethic of the late 70's punk subculture was the driving force that enabled these smaller bands the opportunity to record and have their tracks released on limited 7" vinyl releases. A number of these tracks have become highly collectable to the discerning punk collector.

Three CD set featuring Comus, Vashti Bunyan, Trees, Bridget St John, Kevin Coyne, Incredible String Band, Fairport Convention and many more.

Bristol Archive's compilations "The Bristol Reggae Explosion 1978-1983" and its follow-up "The Bristol Reggae Explosion 2 - The 1980s", both continue to find new fans, and will soon be re-released with updated tracklistings. In the meantime they have borrowed an idea from their hugely successful Midlands Roots Explosion series and created a brand new exclusive vinyl compilation, "The Bristol Roots Explosion". The new LP naturally draws heavily on the first two Bristol Reggae Explosions, featuring firm favourites such as Joshua Moses' all time classic "Africa (Is Our Land)" produced by the great Dennis Bovell, Bunny Marrett's rare and almost impossible to find on the original 12" "Times Are Getting Harder" and Ron Green's 3D Productions "Riot", another track that's very difficult to find on its original 7" format. Also included are local legends Talisman, Big Roy and the Rhythmites. "The Bristol Roots Explosion" is exactly what the title says, a record that documents the West Country's take on roots reggae from the second half of the 1970s until the end of the 1980s...

Various Artists - Johnny Powers And Friends
On paper, Michigan seems an unlikely candidate for a rockabilly hotbed, yet because of its plentiful jobs in the steel and automobile industries centred around Detroit, the state became a magnet for Southerners in the 1930s and 1940s. Consequently, a healthy market for country and blues music developed into one for rockabilly amongst the children of the migrants. Boasting the longest freshwater coastline of any of the US states, there is nothing wet about the searing rock 'n' roll laid down by the likes of Johnny Powers nor the wealth of recordings made at the tiny Fortune Studio in Detroit and others dotted around the state long before Motown held sway.

"1970 and 1971 were the years of Ride a White Swan and T Rextasy, of Black Sabbath’s Paranoid and Meddle by Pink Floyd, of Hunky Dory, Maggie May and Madman Across the Water. Not much in the way of morning-after-the-60s hangover or pensive uncertainty there: the music that would come to define British rock in the 70s was well underway, and its progenitors already had their gazes fixed firmly forward. But English Weather tells an alternative story, using the stuff that fell through the cracks to create something really compelling and immersive: it’s a pleasure to lose yourself in it." - The Guardian

Various Artists - Still In A Dream - A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995
“Shoegaze” was a term invented circa 1990 to describe a new breed on UK Indie guitar bands inspired by the likes of 4AD Records, My Bloody Valentine and US acts like Sonic Youth. Bands like Ride, Moose, Lush, Pale Saints and The Telescopes married dreamy, off-kilter melodies, skewed, heavily effects-laden guitar riffs and psychedelic production values. Although “Shoegaze” was initially a somewhat derogatory term to pigeonhole a clutch of new acts, the term quickly evolved to become an accepted genre of music which has influenced successive generations of bands, especially those outside of the UK. Housed in a lavish ‘book’ set, ‘Still In A Dream’ pays tribute to that seminal period with numerous classics, cult favourites, rarities and tracks new to CD. Across five discs, the evolution of the sound labelled as “Shoegaze” is charted from the bands who inspired it on Disc 1 to many of the US and other non-UK acts on Disc 5. Awash with rare memorabilia, 12,000 words of sleeve-notes from journalist Neil Taylor and band biographies, STILL IN A DREAM is the ultimate tribute to what was also called ‘The Scene That Celebrated Itself’!

Various Artists - Treasure Isle - Bond Street Special 1967-74
After retiring from the Jamaican Police Force Arthur ‘Duke’ Reid established his Treasure Isle Liquor Store and Sound System in Pink Lane Kingston and was crowned the undisputed 'King of Sound and Blues' in 1956, 57 and in 58. The Duke then moved into record production and after relocating the store to 33 Bond Street, he then built a recording studio on top of his new premises in 1966. According to the musicians, the wooden construction of the Treasure Isle recording studio gave the music a distinctive warmth and richness and with resident engineer Byron ‘Baron/Smithy’ Smith at the controls, the sound of a Bond Street recording was immediately recognisable... A glittering selection of Striker’s Treasure Isle recordings are featured on this compilation.

Various Artists - Dreamy Harbour
When Tresor founder Dimitri Hegemann stumbled into a former bank vault in East Berlin on March 13th 1991, he had little idea that the space he had unlocked would fast become one of Berlin's most influential and enduring techno clubs. "We didn't know what would happen 10 months later," he says. "We signed a lease for a year. Which eventually got renewed for another three months, and another three months...” As Tresor celebrates its 25th anniversary with this work of artists from the US, Germany, China, France, Austria, Italy and the UK, it is worth dwelling on how the cultural conditions that birthed Detroit techno – economic neglect and broken industry – were mirrored by the disused bunkers and impromptu parties of post-unification East Berlin, where techno found new, vigorous expression. Today, though the boom and bust of globalised capitalism has filled the void that followed the Berlin Wall, and techno has become a worldwide industry, we face a new political chapter, one defined by populism, nationalism and mistrust. Contemporary creatives should take inspiration from Tresor's story, an extraordinary experiment born from improvisation, resourcefulness and social neglect that uplifted the spirits of inner city communities for a quarter-century...
