We decided to bring in this limited edition clear vinyl repress when THE INCITERS booked a tour with DEAL’S GONE SLACK! We also realized many fans missed out when we had the last pressing a handful of years ago. Let’s say we don’t carry much soul anymore now that it’s a big thing (can you believe when we released “Doing Fine” in 2000 there wasn’t any other label in the USA interested in touching a modern soul project!!!). At long last, the great 2nd album by San Francisco’s finest northern soul combo is back on wax, 250 copies on transparent 180g vinyl! Don’t delay!

Vinyl has arrived for our incredible “mixtape on wax” compiled by RUDE GIRL REVUE! Fifteen incredibly diverse tracks full of exclusive vinyl debuts – soul ska, lovers rock, acoustic reggae, third wave, ska-punk, neo-traditional 2-Tone, new wave, streetpunk ska and more! RUDE GIRLS TO THE FRONT is unapologetically female. More than just a song lyric, it’s become a mantra for Rude Girl Revue, the all-female ska supergroup that made their triumphant debut at the 2021 Supernova Ska Festival. Sixteen women took the stage featuring members of the hottest ska bands from across the USA, compiled here on this exciting new collection. Unlike other all-girl bands, Rude Girl Revue was formed by women, for women. All of the members share a desire to work together to make music that speaks to their shared female experience. The band plays big, original tunes, ska versions of popular feminist anthems, and curated, uplifting ska covers. They present themselves as real women, with a beauty that isn’t merely skin deep. Rude Girl Revue is on a mission: to inspire women not just to move to the front of the crowd but to see themselves on stage in front of that crowd, and to make those dreams of performing a reality. **SUBSCRIPTION CLUB SELECTION!

Spain’s top act returns with a new punky 3rd wave meets 2-Tone ska sound for fans of The Interrupters and Tim Timebomb, and Rancid (when they play ska!). Formed in 2005 by Carlos Dingo, the band soon became one of the world’s top rocksteady, early reggae, and ska acts led by the captivating lead vocals of Isa Garcia. Full length albums on Spain’s Liquidator Records (2010) and Germany’s Grover Records (2013) received critical acclaim worldwide, now the band have returned from a short hiatus with an uptempo and energetic 90s American ska sound, and what better label to unleash this new direction then on Jump Up Records, right? Eleven super-catchy songs that will keep you singing and dancing for years to come, this limited batch is on random red marbled color vinyl.
REPRESS on RED VINYL OUT NOW. You might remember their “MOUNTAIN STANDARD TIME” full length on Megalith back in 2009, since then the band have really built up a strong scene in their home state of Colorado with a self-released CD in 2011 and a cool vinyl 12″ EP in 2013. Fast forward to 2017 at SKA BREWING’s 22nd ANNIVERSARY PARTY in Durango Colorado. Headliners LESS THAN JAKE were forced to cancel due to Hurricane Irma and with one day’s notice THE DENDRITES came and saved the day! A wonderful night was had by all, the band’s super cool and jazzy instrumental ska vibe was a hit with the packed crowd, fans danced right to the very end! It was at that very moment that we here at JUMP UP knew we wanted THE DENDRITES to join the family. In this day and age an 100% instrumental ska/reggae/jazz album is a bit of a rarity, but we LOVED this record so much that we were up for the challenge. Kinda like Blue Note recordings, timeless music “sings” whether they have vocals or not – “DAMN RIGHT” is one of those albums that we are sure will be considered a “future classic”. They were a big HIT at SUPERNOVA SKA FESTIVAL 2021, and they’ll be back at the festival again in 2023!
German ska & reggae virtuoso DR RING DING has returned with his seventeenth album, a wonderful collection of songs that range between reggae, old school dancehall, 2 Tone, traditional ska, cumbia and dub. Since 1987 he has performed with the top Jamaican influenced bands in Germany including EL BOSSO & DIE PING PONGS, SENIOR ALLSTARS, and THE BUSTERS. With the band SKA-VAGANZA he focused on traditional 60s Caribbean music, and that love continues with the songs on THE REMEDY – showing incredible diversity and talent as a singer, songwriter, entertainer and trombonist. Guests include Jamaican dancehall queen SISTA GRACY, the Grammy-nominated TIPPA IRIE, American jazz singer STEPHANIE K. and Swiss singer and Eurovision 2010 participant MICHAEL VON DER HEIDE. An absolutely enjoyable and well-rounded album! The remedy works – just call the Doctor! Repress on poolside blue vinyl in stock now, comes with a drink coaster for your glass of rum!
Are you a fan of that 90’s Hellcat sound? Fast paced punky 2-Tone as perfected by the likes of Rancid’s Tim Timebomb or The Clash decades earlier? Well….we’ve got two killer imports for you! SHANDON is an Italian ska punk band that formed in the mid 90s, and includes in their ranks Oly Riva the vocalist from THE MAGNETICS! Truthfully we missed this record the first time around as it was released in April 2020, but we’re determined to give this album a new lease on life. The guests alone will impress you – vocalists from Hub City Stompers, Inspector, Rumjacks, and the one and only Vic Ruggiero! White vinyl import on Indie Box Records Italy. DOPE TIMES are a Brazilian ska punk band featured on the TOO HECTIC International Collection, and by the looks of the art you know what you’re getting! Throwback Rancid skate punk and ska that’s spot on for fans who love those Give ‘Em The Boot comps 25 years ago! Seriously, this 2020 album is high octane from start to finish!
Buford O’Sullivan is a trombonist and composer who has performed world-wide since the 1980’s. His first band, ‘Big Noise’ traveled the Northeast Corridor playing the alt music circuit from NYC and Albany to Boston. Big Noise played regularly at CBGBs, The Cat Club, and the music strip of Bleeker Street. In the 1990’s, Buford toured the 3rd wave ska craze extensively with The Scofflaws and The Toasters, traveling all across the USA and Canada, Europe, and South America. The Scofflaws second release ‘Ska in Hi Fi’ featured several of his songs, including ‘William Shatner’ and ‘Nude Beach’ for which a video was made and aired on MTV. He contributed a drinking song ‘Can I Get Another’ to the Toasters’ final Moon records release “Enemy of the System”. After the millennium, he joined The Easy Star All-Stars and his reach spanned the globe with performances at The Glastonbury Music Festival in the UK, the Fuji Rock festival in Japan, Blues Festival in Australia, Moscow, Singapore, with countless tours of England, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, and these international trips continue to this day. He has also worked with other bands such as Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Dave Hillyard and the Rock Steady Seven, The Brooklyn Attractors, and Dub is a Weapon. He continues to be the stand-in for Vin Gordon in the trombone chair for ‘The Skatalites Band’. His latest solo album “Stolen Soul” technically dropped at the end of 2019, and our initial plans for a vinyl release were side tracked by the pandemic. The album is so good we never gave up on it! As Buford puts it “Stolen Soul is a project that attempts to digitize the human soul. Using the wonders of 21st century technology, all of the anguish and sacrifice that goes into the human act of making music have been beatmaped and sampled to provide an album’s worth of listening enjoyment!” All songs written, produced, and performed by Buford himself, it’s a wonderful selection of 13 tracks that range from jazzy roots reggae, scorching ska, dub, early/skinhead reggae and modern 2-Tone – mostly instrumental but Buford belts it out on some songs too! Limited edition on red and clear vinyl. ***2023 Subscription Club Selection***

REPRESSED! NYC satanic ska/metal band’s third album from 1999 finally on vinyl for the first time! Demanded by fans – we heard you! After our reissues of “GOD BLESS SATAN” and “MAXIMUM PERVERSION”of course we’d be dropping this on you for Black Friday 2019!
