Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Cultures of Soul is very excited to announce this killer tropical reggae cover of Sade's Smooth Operator. Recorded at Circle Sound Studios in Miami the backing track was recorded by members of the famous reggae outfit Inner Circle with vocals by local area rising star at the time, Sabrina Rich. Sabrina (her real name is actually Sabrena) had been making records in her and her ex-husband's studio in their garage for years. The result of which was the disco 12" Exit/Whispering. Around this time Sabrina was performing in the Palm Beach / Boca Raton area of Florida and performed with Jimmy Bo Horne. Some time after Sabrina worked with a man named Kenneth Corey who mastered her recordings. Kenneth referred her to Roger and Ian Lewis of Inner Circle to help press up their vinyl. They became friends and around 1985 recorded Smooth Operator. During this time they were working and partying hard and experimenting with different ideas and sounds. The track was originally released in small numbers as sort of a demo and never really took off. Shortly after Inner Circle went on tour in Europe and the single went into obscurity until many years later when copies of the record turned up in New York and Toronto. This 12" includes a special discomix edit by Duckcomb a.k.a. Patrick Billard, DJ and record collector extraordinaire.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
7 inch singles were instrumental to the development of the Jamaican music
industry, more affordable than full lengths for the consumer, they also
allowed the labels to turnaround what was being recorded into music played
from their booming sound systems as quickly as possible. In that spirit, Get
On Down will be reissuing some of the most crucial Jamaican sides on 45,
this time out with The Jamaicans most well-known cut “Ba Ba Boom.”
The Jamaicans first formed in 1967 as the Cool Shakes. By the time the year
was over, they’d updated their line up from a trio to a quartet, changed their
name to the Jamaicans and took “Ba Ba Boom” to first place in that year’s
Island Festival Song Contest. Soon after, the cut (backed by Tommy
McCook & The Supsersonics) was issued on the Treasure Isle imprint to
instant classic status. On the flip, it’s Twilight Zone, a reverb drenched
proto-dub instrumental version of the song.

For the second salvo in their "loud cut series", the Harlem Shuffle label has raided the vaults of Lee 'Scratch' Perry's legendary studio band, "The Upsetters". On the A-side you'll find "Popcorn" from 1970's "Eastwood Rides Again" album, a hard-edged, Ska-era rhythm & blues rump-shaker that sounds like a Jamaican take on the Meters. The flipside plays host to "Tight Spot", a dubbed-out reggae riddim over which tight saxophone riffs ascend impressively while deejay/singer/mic man attempts to get the dance going with some choice words and phrases. Like the A-side, it's a genuine dancefloor workout.

Preorder 13.03.2020
Jah9 returns with third full-length album entitled "Note To Self"! - The new longplayer for the stunning empress is a must-have and features appearances from top reggae performers Chronixx, Tarrus Riley, Pressure Busspipe plus british rapper Akala, the former winner as Best Hip Hop Act at the MOBO Awards.

Jah9 (born as Janine Cunningham) is on a mission to heal, nourish, and grow through her powers as a woman and an artist. She is one of the reggae's most dynamic voices, the artist whose strong, insightful lyrics blend elements of dub poet Mutabaruka, Tracey Chapman and early Erykah Badu. The songs create a narrative of Jah9’s journey from self-awareness to accountability, with atmospheric textures and exciting melodies, propelled by reggae riddims and conscious lyrics. Her quest to encourage and share the gifts of spiritual awakening sets the tone for the project. Deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry, dub and spirit to become a powerful femiNINE energy within a universal grassroots movement of consciousness. Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970's Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel, "reminiscent of that darkly operatic wailer for truth & justice, Nina Simone."

Raw Dub Creator
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Bokeh Versions)
19,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
TNT has never released a record before (aside from the 12" we did last year), so this is a huge fucking honour to be trusted with this material. TNT Roots has continued a solo career since Earthquake quietly folded in 2002, trading short-run CDr's on Ebay and the Blood & Fire forum. His music still survives on not-for-sale dubplates - pushed exclusively by legendary 90s sounds like Aba Shanti.
The result is the Raw Dub Creator LP - a survey of his 2006 - 2018 CDr selected by Bokeh. Urgent steppas for dark dances, heavier than the grave - next evolution soundsystem muzik.
These are driving militant sounds for these times made in seeming isolation in Northampton (TNT never plays live, doesn't want Bandcamp, just wants to sell his CDs quietly over email). TNT Roots' contribution to dub is seismic, almost dinosauric, but through some glitch in universe fabric, 'Mighty In Battle' [Bokeh 2018] was his first official vinyl release. As half of Earthquake - he's responsible for the darkest, forward, most slept-on future of dub to grace us. This unique and heavy vision has reset the whole game with long unavailable LPs like Revelation in Dub and Dub Harder Than Steel make obvious an understated lineage flowing from 90s steppas down to jungle, grime, hardcore, darkcore, doomcore, it's kinda pointless to list them. It's dub. TNT and Earthquake's rightful place alongside those mystic giants, Iration Steppas, is more than assured by those that know.

Big Crown records is proud to present the first 45 from the label's newest signing, Liam Bailey. Liam is an English singer and songwriter from Nottingham with Jamaican roots but a style and sound completely his own. The first 7" is taken from his upcoming album and was produced by long time collabo- rator, Leon Michels. The pair fist worked together 10 years ago on the song, "When Will They Learn" which has since become a club favorite at reggae nights around the globe.Side A, Champion, is a song that is in a class all by itself and certainly a slight departure for Liam and Leon. Thumping Juno bass and drums fortified with an 808, this reggae tinged banger is designed to bust up woofers and blow out dance floors. While Liam waxes poetic about a type of girl that is as prodigious as she is pulchritudinous, the rhythm is a hypnotic groove that begs to be played over and over again.Side B, Please Love Me Again, finds Liam in a place that most people might know him for. A beautiful written song with nothing more than stunning vocals and acoustic guitar. Liam's performance on this one that will move anybody with a pulse.

Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
London “tropical punk” four-piece The Skints drop the second limited-edition 45 to accompany their hit new album ‘Swimming Lessons’.
Off the back of sold-out shows across the UK, Europe and US, it was clear that ‘Armageddon’ was becoming a firm fan favourite and needed to have a dedicated vinyl press. It sees the band compose a prescient commentary on the stress of watching the most powerful people in the world exchange fighting talk. The end is nigh when the red buttons get pushed and nothing will save us!
Jamaica’s rising star Runkus comes through with a killer feature where he too lays down a blistering take on the topical subject matter. The chorus owes a nod to the legendary Sister Nancy for the original lyric and for being a career-long inspiration to the band. The original is backed by a sound system shaking dub version provided courtesy of Gentleman’s Dub Club. It completes a package that will become an essential collectable for Skints’ fans, as well as a must-have for in-the-know reggae devotees.
Limited to just 500 copies worldwide.

Eric Donaldson’s soaring falsetto has made him one of Jamaica’s best-loved vocalists. Born in the country town of Bog Walk in 1947, Donaldson cut some ska material at Studio One in 1964, which never surfaced, and went on to form The West Indians vocal trio at the tail end of rock steady, enjoying minor local hits for Sir JJ and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Winning the annual Festival Song Competition with love ditty “Cherry Oh Baby” in 1971 saw him team up with former Jamaicans vocalist Tommy Cowan and hit-making producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee, the subsequent recording of the tune at Dynamic Sounds studio resulting in a spectacular success around the world and subsequent hit cover versions by The Rolling Stones and UB40, among many others. This self-titled debut album was recorded at Dynamics in the wake of the hit with the set of upcoming players known as The Inner Circle, which then featured future members of Third World such as keyboardist and arranger Ibo Cooper and guitarist Cat Coore; along with the enduring “Cherry Oh Baby,” there is a popular cover version of the doomed romance saga, “Sylvia’s Mother” and an individual rendition of “Love Of The Common People,” as well as the castigating “Miserable Woman,” all popular with reggae fans at home and abroad.

For the new year, your friends at Get On Down bring you a beautiful
package of roots reggae weirdness from the almighty Upsetter:
Lee Perry.
This 12” single features the song “Disco Devil,” recorded by the legendary
Jamaican mad genius with the group The Full Experience, as a version of
Max Romeo’s “Chase the Devil.” But don’t jump to conclusions based on
the song title – musically this is as far as you can get from
Saturday Night Fever.
Thick, reverb-drenched dub/roots reggae laced with Perry’s dusted vocals
and brilliant work behind the boards are on the menu throughout. This cut
is undeniably underrated in Perry’s catalog and fans will eat this up, since it
has always been hard to find on 7” and 12” for many years now.

At the start of the year, Rocafort Records treated us to its first roots reggae outing in the form of The Circle of Confusion featuring the legendary Studio 1 vocalist Cornel Campbell. Warm, feel-good, socially conscious, intergalactic dub.
We hoped for more, and finally it's here. Although slightly more digital in production, "Yesterday was History" cannot claim to differ enormously from its predecessor. But hey, why mess with the formula when the results are pure and damn near perfect?
The Circle of Confusion are a Swiss production duo: Seb.K (Shakedown productions) and Phil'eas (Black Diamond Sound).Recorded at Addis records in Geneva on the day of Mandela's passing, this track is another slice of dubby humanity-driven peace and love that buoyantly skips along aided by the sweetest scatting voice in reggae, (not showing any signs of its 73 years), and all the appropriate studio space-age sound effects, harmonics and vintage keys. Modern roots reggae at its best, where the dub version is as banging and cosmic as the A side.

Soul Jazz Records’ new Studio One DJ Party is the latest installation from the mighty Studio One Records catalogue, a wicked new collection of the finest DJs and toasters ever to inhabit the world of reggae – seminal Jamaican artists including Prince Jazzbo, Dillinger, Dennis Alcapone, Michigan & Smiley, Lone Ranger as well as a host of lesser known artists and rare cuts from Studio One.
From the earliest days when Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd ran his Downbeat soundsystem up and down the length of Jamaica, DJs and toasters such as King Stitt and Count Machukie were always a part of the sound of Studio One, introducing new records and exciting audiences with catchphrase lines such as:
“No matter what the people say these sounds lead the way
It's the order of the day from your boss deejay” King Stitt
So when DJ emerged as a distinct reggae style at the start of the 1970s, Studio One was, as always, way ahead of their competitors. Legendary artists of the calibre of Dillinger, Dennis Alcapone and Prince Jazzbo all queued up to record for the equally legendary label.
At the end of the 1970s, as dancehall exploded onto the island, Clement Dodd was once again able to maintain Studio One’s position on the throne as the number one sound in the Jamaica, fighting off upstart competitors such as Channel One and Joe Gibbs who tried to replicate Studio One’s unique sound. During this period Clement Dodd released a series of stunning dancehall releases from young DJ/dancehall artists at the label including Lone Ranger and Michigan & Smiley.
This selection spans the early 70s up until the mid-1980s, from the earliest days of deejay toasting right up until digital dancehall, ground-breaking tracks over the finest selection of the ultimate Studio One rhythms and tracks. Who could ask for more?
Studio One DJ Party includes specially commissioned sleevenotes by Chris Lane, founder of the legendary British reggae label Fashion Records, as well as fantastic original artwork commissioned by the illustrator Ski Williams. The album is released as double heavyweight vinyl (+download code), and distinctive Soul Jazz Records CD with slipcase.

”INNA DE YARD on the road to Hollywood!” This familiar refrain from singer Cedric Myton on the set for a documentary directed by Peter Webber (3 Oscar nominations for “Girl with a Pearl Earring”) began as joke. Now it’s almost become reality.
It all started when this famous director, captivated by his subject, decided to help record the new album, before making it into a film. Several partners (including distribution outfit Le Pacte) then pulled out all the stops to see the film released. It’s now scheduled to hit around a hundred of France’s cinemas this July, and will also be screened in Europe and worldwide. In an unlikely coincidence, UNESCO has just added reggae to its Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list. Who better to embody Jamaica’s authenticity and culture than this group of forgotten legends who used to jam together in back yards in the 60s and 70s, playing reggae, ska and rocksteady, just as they now do with Inna de Yard?

Buoyed by the unexpected success of their 2017 album (“The Soul of Jamaica”) and a sell-out debut tour in France (including the now legendary concerts at the Philharmonie and Le Trianon in Paris), they decided to record a new album: a compilation of their most iconic tracks.

Fused around four great singers whose paths over the years have yielded varying fortunes (Ken Boothe, Cedric Myton, Winston McAnuff and Kiddus I), INNA DE YARD also brings together The Viceroys , a trio of musicians in their seventies, as well as the younger generation (Var, Kush, Derajah), who are keen to carry on the musical tradition of their roots. These superb sessions also feature several guests, such as Horace Andy and Judy Mowatt (one of Bob Marley's backing singers).

Their music conveys a timeless quality, while they themselves are not. Two of the mainstays (Wesley Tinglin, lead singer of The Viceroys, and trombonist Nambo Robinson) have passed away since the last album.

Originally released in the winter of 2012 as part of a self-released E.P., "Never Answer" b/w "Questions" has been remastered and lovingly pressed onto a 45rpm, 7" record - the way it should be! One of the first songs that found bassist Preet Patel in the proverbial driver's seat, the tune began as a instrumental demo with only a chorus melody and a strong UK lovers rock vibe. Once Preet played it for the rest of the group the tune quickly came to life with the addition of Dan Klein's sincere, soulful vocal melody that pays homage to a long-time personal hero of the Frightnrs, the legendary Sugar Minott. The lovers touch mixed with the gritty Brooklyn & Queens rocksteady approach the Frightnrs have become known for has evolved into something all their own...some might say Frightsteady. A truly hidden gem in the Frightnrs formidable catalog, that is sure to bring joy to any and all discerning selectors out there in the Daptone Universe.

Madly rare album of Disco funk and reggae oddities from Rob (Ghanaian , Funky Rob, of 'Make It Fast, make It Slow' fame). " After many years the long lost Apocalyptic Disco Funk offering has been unearthed and re-released for the world to hear. Rob’s prophetic pre-apocalypse disco message, Hellfire, was originally released as a promotional LP by Nigerian label Taretone. Though a seminal work by Rob, disco stylings had fallen from vogue on the Nigerian dance floors. With the local airwaves dominated by artists like Félix Lebarty, Rob’s promotional release was shelved, and never got to see a full-scale commercial issue. Ultimately the master tapes were lost by Taretone and the album was doomed to obscurity for decades until its recent rediscovery by Tambourine Party Records.Hellfire is both a disco burner and a frantic warning about the impending end of the world. From the downtempo title track Hellfire to the floor-filling Glory be to Jesus, Rob will be sure to get his message across. Once the needle is dropped it is hard to deny that even if the world is coming to and end you can die happy listening to this album."
