For a long time Uk Steppers lacked real quality JA vocalists. This is great in its own way. A perfect hybrid of the 4 on the floor euro beat mixed with high quality Jamaican artist Luciano. The real thing.More info
Burru Banton could sing the telephone directory and make it sound essential.
Russ D and Frenchie conjure up a tuff steppers beat that shifts. Slightly slower than these things generally are and all the better for that. Hot stuff on the flipside as well.
Three track vinyl EP with Diggory Kenrick over an Upsetters rhythm that was a demo of an unreleased Perry version of the 'War' rhythm. Has Dennis Alcapone as the guesting dj. Diggory stretches the tune out into a tranquil xylophone extravaganza. Flip-side has a monster 7 minute dub mixed by Russ the Disciple.
Come in a hand stamped sleeve
Four new cuts of the Chim Cherie rhythm.More info
4 killer dub plates from Striker Lee. Not on the vinyl 'Next Cut' album. All hot and heavy and previously un-released versions. The first 50 come in a hand made recycled card sleeve made from the left over 'Full Up' sleeves. Top draw.More info
Jah Jerry the 12 Tribes DJ of preference over Albert Malwi's 'Children of the Emperor'. Deep stuff.More info
Mojo Blue who also did a tune for Leonard 'Santic' Chin as Jah Mojo on the 'Golden Daffodils' rhythm that was cut by Fulk Reid. Very rare. The flip side in particular is good.More info
Yami Bolo on a crunching rhythm from Russ D and Frenchie. Hits the spot.More info
A previously unreleased version of Jimmy Rileys thoughtful Gunman of JA. As relevant now than when it was originally released according to Jimmy. Both sides come from dub plates that were re-mixed at King Tubbys. Tougher leaner and deeper than the original mixes. The A side is not on the new album ‘Live it to know it’. Essential roots music from Jimmy Riley backed by Sly and Robbie. Comes in a hand stamped sleeve.More info
Two cuts of ‘Everybody needs money’ on the A side. A sparse moody observation on social inequality ‘It's the talk of the town, no money going around’. Sound familiar? It came first time around on the ‘Full Moon’ label and has never been re-pressed. The B-side, which has 2 cuts of Reggae Music, also came on the Full Moon label. Engineered by Scientist and was probably recorded slightly later than the A side. Both the versions of Reggae Music are not included on the ‘Live it to know it’ album. Comes in a hand stamped sleeve.More info
An excellent extended mix by Phil Pratt of The Inturns 'Nothing is Impossible'. First released on a Chanan Jah 12' in the mid nineteen seventies. The Inturns recorded an album and several singles for Phil Pratt before returning to the their original name The Viceroys. Extended mix of 'Detour' on the flipside. Comes in a hand stamped bag. Crisp.More info
Three cuts of Junior Brown/ Phil Pratts 'What a disaster'. The rhythm was recorded in Jamaica by Sly and Robbie and was part of the Dial M for Murder lp. The Junior Brown vocal was voiced in the UK and released on The Mystic label. We have an extra mix added to the Pressure Sounds release by The Disciple. A killer release that comes in a hand stamped bag made out of re-cycled card.More info
Genius from the master Don Drummond. Ably backed by Lennie Hibbert on vibes on 'Reload' on the A side. On the flipside the more frantic 'Little Willie' by Clue J & his Blues Busters. A pretty good pressing but check the sound clips before you buy.More info
Winston 'Flames' Jarrett on a rootsy alternate cut of Burning Spears 'Rocking Time' rhythm. Nice dub of the same rhythm on the flip-side. Check the sound clips as they are JA pressings.More info
Rugged twisting rhythm with the trademark Cultural Roots vocals. Tasteful keyboards and syndrum 'if your living on peaceful street' which i hope we all are. Nice.More info
Uptempo class from the masters. Tabby and the Diamonds telling it like it is. Excellent dubplate mix on the flipside.More info
