Two more special CASSETTE TAPE releases for our Black Friday Celebration! The earliest demos of Brooklyn NY traditional ska warriors STOP THE PRESSES are now available on one cassette tape limited to 50 copies. And not to be outdone we have been able to get our hands on more Amy Winehouse tapes! It’s a classic clocking in at almost 90 minutes – and yes it’s all ska and reggae baby! Ask the internet for a track listing!
RUDE GIRL REVIEW made their debut live performance at Supernova Ska Festival 2021, and this all-female all star band stole the weekend!! The project was almost a year in the making with band members sharing ideas and songs to perform remotely, only getting together a couple days before the fest to rehearse. If you were there you know they nailed it! The main movers and shakers of the band also got into the studio to record two amazing originals at Jon Quan’s studio in Virginia Beach, featuring vocals and instrumentation from Jade Tremba & Kristen Forbes (aka Lady Hatchet) from SCOTCH BONNETS and Jenny Whiskey from HUB CITY STOMPERS and RUDE BOY GEORGE. Pressed on orange vinyl in fold over full color sleeve, one time pressing of 500 copies.
We’ve got a brand new album from THE AGGROLITES organist ROGER RIVAS! This will be the fourth album we’ve released for Roger, following up on the critically acclaimed “Autumn Breeze”, “Last Goodbye”, and “Organ Versions Vol 1 & 2” – plus we’ve done three Christmas 7 inch singles as well! Another brilliant instrumental reggae rock steady gem created at his very own RIVAS studios in Los Angeles, 5 warm organ drenched pearls plus full dub versions on the second side. To keep it interesting we are releasing the album on four different formats – including super-collectible 8 track cassette tape! Color vinyl will be shipping the first week of December, and we expect to have all the product available on most of the upcoming December gigs with THE AGGROLITES. Pick one up on the tour and get it signed by the man himself!!!
We’ve been working on this release for a VERY long time, but as you could tell from the tracks we leaked on our free CD samplers – it’s well worth the wait! Five amazing ska & reggae gems backed by NYC’s finest THE SLACKERS – DANI returns to full stride after leading the SOUL RADICS around the world for years. Such a natural collaboration, produced by DAVE HILLYARD and features all members of the band plus Buford O’Sullivan (The Scofflaws / Easy Star All Stars / Skatalites) on trombone, Mike Sarason (Far East) on keys and LARRY McDONALD on percussion. Recorded in Brooklyn NY and Pum Pum Studios in Belgium with Nico Leonard. Pressed in Italy on blue, red, and classic black vinyl. Available in the EU though our partnership with Grover Records.
Longtime fans of MEPHISKAPHELES know that JUMP UP has reissued their first three classic full lengths on vinyl over the past decade, plus we’ve distributed their self titled mini-LP from 2015. In 2019 the band released a brand new 4 song EP and since then we’ve been trying to figure out how to make this a cool vinyl release. Then one day we were shown a process where a printer can put a digital print on a blank side of a record – and the idea behind the “NEVER BORN AGAIN” vinyl was born! MEPHISKAPHELES added two never before released demo versions brining the music side to 6 songs total, pressed on clear vinyl and limited to 500 copies. Due to the complex nature of this project this will remain a one time pressing! Shipping out second week of December for a satanic ska Christmas celebration! If that wasn’t exciting enough we are issuing both the 2015 and 2019 EPs on one cassette tape with blood red shells!
The Jump Up holiday tradition continues! Every year since 2010 we have released a new Christmas single, we are especially pleased with this year’s being original music from two bands tearing up the international ska scene – Britian’s THE SKAPONES and the SCOTCH BONNETS from Baltimore/DC. Both songs are full of sleigh bells, chimes, and lots of holiday cheer! THE SKAPONES “Ring The Bells” and SCOTCH BONNETS “Winter Reggae Party” will be new holiday traditions for sure!
