It’s been a few years since we’ve had an album from THE DENDRITES up on the site, but we assure you that this will make up for lost time! You might remember their “MOUNTAIN STANDARD TIME” full length on Megalith back in 2009, since then the band have really built up a strong scene in their home state of Colorado with a self-released CD in 2011 and a cool vinyl 12″ EP in 2013. Fast forward to 2017 at SKA BREWING’s 22nd ANNIVERSARY PARTY in Durango Colorado. Headliners LESS THAN JAKE were forced to cancel due to Hurricane Irma and with one day’s notice THE DENDRITES came and saved the day! A wonderful night was had by all, the band’s super cool and jazzy instrumental ska vibe was a hit with the packed crowd, fans danced right to the very end! It was at that very moment that we here at JUMP UP knew we wanted THE DENDRITES to join the family. In this day and age an 100% instrumental ska/reggae/jazz album is a bit of a rarity, but we LOVED this record so much that we were up for the challenge. Kinda like Blue Note recordings, timeless music “sings” whether they have vocals or not – “DAMN RIGHT” is one of those albums that we are sure will be considered a “future classic”. Available on aqua colored vinyl, cassette tape, and compact disc.
We’re always excited to push the boundaries of Jamaican music, and these two new releases from SABOR DISCOS in France do that! SERGENT GARCIA is a popular “salsamuffin” artist in Europe, check out his high-octane performances all over YouTube! On this limited edition 4 track extended mix mini-LP his most popular songs get a rootsy dub treatment, lots of energy and hypnotic grooves. Try it, we are sure you will dig it. The RUDE HI FI / BARRIOBEAT 7″ single is for the more adventurous type as side a is a jungle / drum & bass remix of MANU CHOU’s “KING OF BONGO” while the flip is a funky boogaloo edit of Cuban 60’s siren LA LUPE. A fun DJ tool if you ask me!!
Last year’s Christmas 7″ single is back in stock! We are SO PROUD of this record!! In the late 80’s there were a handful of bands across the world that kept the ska flame alive, one of our favorites was NAPOLEON SOLO from Denmark. An amazing soul/ska band, keeping the 2-TONE flame with modernist vibe, their first mini-LP “HOW TO STEAL THE WORLD” on UNICORN is still a stone cold classic to this day! They’ve been at it for over 30 years, but haven’t released a new record since the early 90’s. LEO & THE LINE UP are also from Denmark – they’ve become one of the hottest ska bands in Europe with releases on PORK PIE, GROVER, and of course JUMP UP. An amazing soul ska band with three amazing female back up singers – it just made sense to unite the two on this Christmas vinyl single! DANISH DYNAMITE BABY! LEO & THE LINEUP penned a new holiday classic “CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU” while NAPOLEON SOLO covers the classic “MERRY XMAS EVERYBODY”. Limited edition of 500, available on RED and GREEN vinyl.
Last year’s Christmas 7″ single is back! DR RING DING’s “Christmas Again” is taken from his “ONCE A YEAR” album, the b-side is an exclusive German version of the song! We found some copies that mixed red and white vinyl, that’s our special peppermint version!
CHRISTMAS RE-PRESSES! ROGER RIVAS’ holiday hot shots are back in print, limited to 100 copies on RED vinyl. Instrumental Organ Drenched Early Reggae versions of “Deck The Halls” and “Jingle Bells” from The Aggrolites keyboard master!! Big hole 45 rpm vinyl – act fast these won’t last!
BROOKYLN ATTRACTORS are an all star jazz ska/reggae band comprising of members of VOID UNION, WESTBOUND TRAIN, NEW YORK SKA JAZZ ENSEMBLE, STUBBORN ALLSTARS, DUB IS A WEAPON, THE ROCKSTEADY 7, THE TOASTERS plus original Jamaican percussion legend LARRY McDONALD! Their debut album “GOOD EVIL ALCHEMY” took the world by storm in 2014 receiving critical acclaim across the world, and at the end of 2014 the crew spread some holiday cheer – jazz reggae renditions of “JINGLE BELLS” and “GOD REST DEM IRIE GENTLEMEN”. This year we released their new album “THE MOVE” so people started asking for this nugget all over again – we repressed 100 more on RED vinyl!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from all of us at JUMP UP RECORDS! Last year we re-released the legendary CHRISTMA-SKA album on vinyl for the first time ever, and it was a huge hit with the entire pressing selling out in less than 3 weeks! Good news – we’ve re-pressed it again this year on marbled red vinyl. You’re asking yourself…wait… why didn’t I have this MOON SKA NYC CD in my collection back in the day? Well here’s why….this amazing holiday collection was licensed from MOON SKA to a Japanese company in 1997 – unless you were forking up the big bucks for an import copy it probably wasn’t on your radar. To top it off, the Japanese label ceased operations soon after and this CD became a true rarity!

The year was 1997. Rabid fans worldwide had played “God Bless Satan” to death for 3 long years. Everyone wondered what they were in for with “Maximum Perversion” – and nobody expected what the band was about to unleash! If you were still a kid when it came out, you probably felt musically thrown from a moving car…wondering what had just happened! Simply put, this album was light years ahead of it’s time. The band’s extravagant rhythms heralded a new shift into experimental territories. From the funky breaks and avant-garde solos of “Break Your Ankle Punk” to the occasional forays into metal and hardcore territory and even more genre fusions, the band was taking chances left and right expending more energy on unusual arrangements and broadening its “ska” sound. The brass players continued to sound top-notch, while the manic rhythms propelled the album along with a demonic gusto. Twenty years later, we figured that you’d finally understand the avant-ska of “Maximum Perversion”…thus we have reissued it on vinyl to bring this masterpiece to a whole new generation of fans. God bless Mephiskapheles! Continue reading MEPHISKAPHELES “Maximum Perversion” LP – 20th Anniversary Edition + their latest Mini-LP
This project has been a bit of a holy grail for years. Did it exist? Could such an amazing concept album really happen? Just when you thought it was all bogus, the band would sneak a track or two in a live set and rumors would begin all over again. Shared live fan videos of GRR performing “PONY” and “NO DIGGITY” in 2017 got everyone talking again….then it happened. An official announcement on the Cassette Store Day website. It firs appeared as “Knockin’ Roots”, but then it’s official name was unleashed “SWEAT STEADY”. Eight tracks that immediately bring a smile to your face, and a mad dash to the packed dancefloor with the exclamation “that’s my jam!” Damn straight it’s your jam, this album is all that and a bag of chips son! Amazing ska/reggae versions of Lauren Hill “Doo Wop”, Ginuwune “Pony”, Blackstreet “No Diggity”, R. Kelly “I Believe I Can Fly”, KC & JoJo “All My Life”, Aaliyah “Are You That Somebody”, Boys II Men “I’ll Make Love To You” and Montell Jordan “This Is How We Do It”. You gotta hear it to believe it! Visually. we put this on green vinyl (of course!) and have designed it to look like a 1990’s major-label DJ promo-only LP (you know, back when everyone said vinyl was dying). It’s not too late to snag one of the super collectible limited edition cassette tapes only $5 more! Bang it on your boombox!
