Aggrobeat Imports: BOSS CAPONE & PATSY “Kings & Queen” LP / FREEDOM SOUNDS 3xCD Box Set

Boss Capone is the alter ego of Boudewijn Van Trigt, core member, songwriter and producer of the Dutch early reggae band The Upsessions. With The Upsessions he released five full lengths including an album with reggae legend Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Since 2005 The Upsessions toured all over Europe and South-America. After two solo albums under his moniker Boss Capone (2013 and 2015), it was time for a new project, this time together with Patsy. Patsy is the alter ego of Renske De Boer, who is the singer with ska group Mr Wallace and the only Dutch northern soul band The Originators. During the lockdown, the pair quietly worked on this album and the result is truly BOSS! A delicious blend of early reggae and rocksteady with a hint of foundation ska. The eleven tracks are a tribute to legendary Jamaican producers like Clancy Eccles, Derrick Harriott and Carl Johnson, specifically the years 1968-1971, an era when record labels like Pama and Trojan Records were king. But this record is so much more than a trip down memory lane. Through his extensive production work, Boss Capone knows how to make a record sound vintage yet modern, and Patsy’s powerful and dynamic voice pushes the record to greater heights. On this album the pair is musically accompanied by the skilled musicians from The Upsessions and saxophonist Tommy Tornado. Limited edition 180g black vinyl for real reggae heads, imported from Aggrobeat in the Netherlands.

Not to be outdone we’ve stocked this incredible 66 track 3xCD BOX set that celebrates 10 years of the FREEDOM SOUNDS festival in Germany. Loaded with so many exclusives it will make your head spin, check it out: Continue reading Aggrobeat Imports: BOSS CAPONE & PATSY “Kings & Queen” LP / FREEDOM SOUNDS 3xCD Box Set

New Imports: TOMMY TORNADO & THE CLERKS “Back On Track” LP / ARTHUR KAY & THE CLERKS “The Night I Came Home” LP

Tommy Tornado is a ska-reggae-jazz-swing-funk-soul saxophonist who,  after winning the Big Boss Jazz Award in 1997 at the age of 17, started touring with Dutch rocksteady/reggae formation Rude Rich and the Highnotes.

“Back On Track” is his 3rd solo album after “Sunrise” (2009) and “Cool Down” (2011), and on this new album Tommy plays Tenor and Barritone saxophone, Flute, Melodica and Fender Rhodes (keys) alongside German band THE CLERKS.  This 8 piece tour-de-force ska reggae collective started in 2000 and are heavily influenced by the ska and rocksteady of the late 1960s. This brilliant collaboration is full of sweet, hot Jamaican riddims, lush instrumentals that harken back to the Studio One backing bands who made all this music possible! Fans of DAVE HILLYARD & THE ROCKSTEADY 7 will LOVE this record. Includes a galloping ska vocal from the one and only KING DJANGO! These Dutch imports were hard to find for years, only available as a Kickstarter premium. We’ve also stocked “THE NIGHT I CAME HOME” album by The Clerks featuring the “Original South London Rude Boy” Arthur Kay, the unsung hero of 2-TONE.

REPRESSED! THE STEP DAUGHTERS “The Right Sound” LP (clear vinyl) / CD / Tape

Back in print on CLEAR VINYL! If you’re looking for the quintessential Orange County ska-punk sound, look no further than THE STEP DAUGHTERS! A catch mix of 90’s Hellcat style punky street ska, equal parts British 2-Tone and American punk. Formed in early 2019 by scene veterans Eric Vedder (bass) and Jeremy Sandoval (guitar) alongside frontwoman Erin Smith-Norrick, Timothy Calacsan (keys), Kevin Erney (drums), and Colin Darby (sax).  Don’t let their short time on the scene fool you, this group is comprised of all experienced musicians and have been linked to a handful of other great local acts at one time or another! Their track “F’in with my Head” held a spot in the “Ska Parade Top 5” for over 8 consecutive weeks and has been featured on Ricky Menace’s “Taxi TV.”  Other fan favorites like their cover of “Fat Randy” and the original “Over It” have been featured on compilations like “Puro Desmadre” (Voodoo Glowskulls Tribute) and on SMELVIS RECORDS “SKALLOWEEN 2020”! Soon the band caught the ear of SKA PUNK DAILY and were featured on the groundbreaking California ska-punk collection “TOO HECTIC” in the summer of 2021.  Tragically soon after the release of “TOO HECTIC” co-founder ERIC VEDDER passed away and the band spent the next few months picking up the pieces and rebuilding.  JUMP UP is proud  to be a part of this chapter in the STEP DAUGHTERS story releasing their debut 9 track album album as a tribute to ERIC VEDDER, and we are happy to say the band is active one again!  Free Step Daughters stickers included in all orders!
