Last year our good pal DR RING DING released his very first holiday album, we had a small handful of CDs available for our SKA CD CLUB members. Everyone was asking about vinyl, and this year PORK PIE RECORDS in Germany has made everyone’s Christmas wishes come true! Heavyweight vinyl pressing, piano sheet music / lyrics, with our JUMP UP bonus 7″ tossed in as well!

Another new Christmas 7″ single for 2016! 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.
New Christmas 7″ singles for 2017! This is the third year in a row we’ve released new holiday ska & reggae vinyl nuggets! 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!
CHRISTMAS RE-PRESSES! ROGER RIVAS’ holiday hot shots are back in print, limited to 100 copies on WHITE vinyl. SORRY NEW PICTURES COMING ON MONDAY! 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 with new label art and two new color variations BUT WE ONLY HAVE MARBLED GREEN left now! 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!
