Email us your choices if you only want 1-2, but we recommend that you get all three and save some mega-bucks!

GREEN ROOM ROCKERS “Sweat Steady” LP – 90’s R&B inna Jamaican stylee! Limited to 300 copies!

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).

THE DENDRITES “Damn Right” LP / CD / Tape – top shelf jazz ska from Denver!

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.

MEPHISKAPHELES “Maximum Perversion” LP – 20th Anniversary Edition + their latest Mini-LP

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

A Truly Unique Gift! Handmade “Jamaican Blank” 45rpm style earrings are a must for every RUDE GIRL!

EARINGSONRECSMALLEARINGSAs they say the apple doesn’t fall from the tree! Years and years of 45rpm records being left around the house after DJ gigs combined with the DIY spirit of running JUMP UP at all hours of the day…has lead to my daughter’s newest polymer clay creation for the holiday season! Maggie goes by the handle Miniaturefoodmaker on Etsy (also check out her Taco earrings and Pie magnets!) and has created a wonderful line of “Jamaican Blank” earrings!!  As you can see the design is based on those scribbled on records DJs loved to death back in the day. For fun we have simulated how great female artists of Jamaican history would have looked wearing them! This is a unique, lovingly hand crafted item and a truly wonderful gift for that special someone this holiday season. Oh, and each purchase gets Maggie one step closer to that Iphone she wants but is hard to afford on a DIY label income!  Continue reading A Truly Unique Gift! Handmade “Jamaican Blank” 45rpm style earrings are a must for every RUDE GIRL!

LEO & THE LINE UP / NAPOLEON SOLO Christmas split 7″ single – Danish Dynamite!

leonapoleaonLast 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.
