At last year’s Ska Brewing anniversary party in Durango CO – Ska Brewing and Jump Up sat down and decided to unleash an all-USA collection for Record Store Day 2018! It was a nail-biter, but in the end we squeaked out enough copies to supply release shows in Colorado and Chicago and the balance have been shipping worldwide ever since! Then we released the collection on limited edition cassette for Cassette Store Day! Seventeen bands with all kinds of ska styles represented. Forthcoming tracks from JUMP UP albums appear from THE FUSS, BOSS RIOT, BIG SKA BAND, THE PRIZEFIGHTERS – plus CHRIS MURRAY (with CapsLock), BOOMTOWN UNITED, BREACHERS, BANDULUS, MONTY NEYSMITH & THE BISHOPS, DENDRITES, BLUE HORNETS, GREEN ROOM ROCKERS, BOWCAT, BUSTER’S GHOST, THE CROMBIES, 2 TONE LIZARD KINGS and THE TOASTERS!

Back in print! We here at JUMP UP are extremely proud to release the 4th full length album from Riverside’s THE DEBONAIRES, one of THE most soulful ska/reggae bands to come from the USA. We loved this record as soon as we heard it, “Movin'” features 14 tracks including guest vocals from Angelo Moore from Fishbone, Chris Murray and Vic Ruggiero of The Slackers. They play wicked roots/country reggae with magical harmonies AND killer ska tunes – including an amazing cover of Eric “Monty” Morris’ “Oil In My Lamp” featuring Angelo on vocals!
We at JUMP UP have been fans of SOLOMON JABBY for years – we are so proud to finally be able to work with him! As the guitarist and one of the original members of Christian roots reggae powerhouse Christafari, SOLOMAN has toured the world ’round and recorded a dozen plus albums. But much of his work has been overlooked in the “secular” market. This 7″ single will change that! Two BLAZING early reggae instrumentals with grinding organ – everyone who I have played this for so far immediately thought it was THE AGGROLITES or a ROGER RIVAS solo record! THESE TWO TRACKS are THAT GOOD! As always, released on Limited Edition random colored vinyl! You can hear this on on our Soundcloud page!
