BROOKLYN7inchSUSANKENCROP20141217_043727_resized

The 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. The crew are back spreading some holiday cheer – jazz reggae renditions of “JINGLE BELLS” and “GOD REST DEM IRIE GENTLEMEN” – pressed on hand stamped RED vinyl with a cool fold over sleeve. Limited to 250 copies!  REPRESS COMING DECEMBER 2016 – so please check back!

THE TOASTERS released their first record “BEAT UP” in 1984 – this record pre-dated the launch of MOON RECORDS! With “BRIXTON BEAT” on the a-side (a very early rendition of “EAST SIDE BEAT” and  “THE BEAT” on the flip, this was one of the earliest signs of ska life in a post 2-TONE world!  Earlier this year the band uncovered original sleeves from back in the day, so we decided to re-press the record once again and put them in these original sleeves.  Limited to 500 once these are gone…they are gone! Marble vinyl and white vinyl!

Did you get our limited edition 7″ single with SUSAN CADOGAN and KEN BOOTHE?   Back in February 2014, we brought lovers rock legend SUSAN CADOGAN to Chicago for one of our Jamaican Oldies shows…it was a MASSIVE success. A packed house that was brought to its knees by SUSAN’s sultry singing style, backed by Chicago’s DRASTICS.  During our time with SUSAN we learned about a recently recorded duet with another Jamaican living legend – the one and only KEN BOOTHE !  Upon hearing the tune we just needed to help get this on vinyl!  A track that is equal parts vintage 70s roots AND modern reggae, its dramatic vocals and breathtaking harmonies captivate the listener instantly. A reggae anthem for 2014!  Hear it!    Then get this 7″ single! Pressed on white vinyl with a heart shaped insert designed by CHEMA SKANDAL! CURRENTLY OUT OF PRINT (sorry!)
