Genre:Organic Grooves
Dinosaur L is an alias donned by Arthur Russell, a man whose contribution to dance music from the late seventies and through the eighties was formidable but only quietly acknowledged.

His innovative and left field dance records were way ahead of what people were used to hearing at the time. He was a cellist who studied classical and Indian music. As well as his great strides in dance music he was also involved in the New York downtown avant-garde music scene and produced some albums in a more avant-garde/experimental vein as well as trying his own unique approach to pop.

He scored several hits on the underground New York dance scene at clubs like The Paradise Garage (Larry Levan was a huge supporter). His biggest tunes, “Go Bang!” and “Is It All Over My Face?” were worldwide club hits and are still played today as classics. His records have influenced the scene from his first dance record in 1979 to the present day and his work has been much sampled.

Sadly Arthur died in 1992, but his music lives on and his influence is still felt on the dance music scene, his tunes still sound great and are still moving many dancers around the world, so his spirit lives on. Sleeping Bag Records and Traffic Entertainment Group presents Dinosaur L’s “24->24 Music“ on double LP. Includes the original album tracklisting plus rare 12” remixes and edits.

Genre:Hip Hop
In listing the greatest albums in hip-hop history, one title never seems to stray from the upper echelons, no matter how many years pass: Boogie Down Productions’ undisputed classic from 1986, Criminal Minded. Released amidst a battle between BDP and MC Shan that would redefine the New York rap landscape as it was then known, the album, which features the songs “South Bronx,” “Criminal Minded” and “The Bridge is Over,” captures the excitement, urgency and raw power that embodies hip-hop culture as we know it, with KRS-One’s aggressive yet intelligent lyricism backed by Scott La Rock’s hard-hitting, stripped-down beats.
A true classic, Criminal Minded has been recognized by Vibe Magazine, The Source and Rolling Stone as one of the most important albums of all time. Traffic Entertainment Group and B-Boy Records are proud to present Criminal Minded, presented in a double-LP pressing.

Release:1988 / Reissue
Genre:Hip Hop
De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest may have been more commercially successful, but the afrocentric, jazz political rap movement and unfadeable Native Tounge Massive started with the Jungle Brothers. Their debut full length “Straight Out the Jungle” opened up many doors that are walked through by today’s artists like Mos Def, Common and even Kanye West.
Their taste for jazzy horn samples helped kick-start the entire jazz-rap movement, and their James Brown fixation was one of the first. Plus, the group’s groundbreaking collaboration with legendary house producer Todd Terry, “I’ll House You,” paved the way for numerous hip-house hybrids that shot up the dance and pop charts over the next few years and appeared to be a staple on every East Coast Rap Album from ‘88 until ‘92.
The opening track “Straight Out the Jungle” samples the classic Bill Withers drum break as the JB’s tell you where they are coming from. “Black Is Black” (featuring a young Q-Tip) and “Sounds Of The Safari” introduces the pro-black edge, while the sexually subtle classics “Jimbrowski” and “I’m Gonna Do You” are funny, clever and timely. Hard, smart, fun, clever and brilliant, Mike G., Africa Baby Bam and Sammy G may not have realized it but they crafted a classic rap album that stands the test of time. Available here on high grade, loud pressed, double vinyl for the first time ever!

Robbie Basho - Venus In Cancer

Venus In Cancer
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Traffic)
26,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Though frequently overshadowed by his contemporary and Takoma Records labelmate John Fahey,
the compositions and performances of Daniel R. Robinson Jr., best known by the stage name Robbie
Basho, were integral in the development of the American primitive guitar style. Along with Fahey, and
songwriter/composers such as Max Ochs, Leo Kottke, and others, Basho helped bring to the masses
the distinct form of guitar finger-picking, which blended folk and country-blues with neo-classical
composition techniques. Unlike his contemporaries, Basho went a step further by incorporating
unorthodox open tunings on his 12-string guitar, as well as elements of Indian classical music,
inspired by the sarod-playing of his mentor Ali Akbar Khan.
Unfortunately Robbie Basho passed on in relative obscurity at the early age of 45 due to a fatal
stroke, so he was never able to witness the extent of his influence. Nonetheless his legacy lives on
in the works of American primitive guitar revivalists like James Blackshaw and Glenn Jones, as
well as indie folk units like Currituck County or Six Organs of Admittance. All of Basho's
signature stylistic elements are on full display on his 1969 album Venus In Cancer, which added onto
his dextrous, steel-string finger-picking, additional cues from raga, flamenco, Appalachian folk,
and even foresaw the arrival of new age music. A mystical and astrologically-inspired collection of
guitar improvisation, one which clocks in at nearly 50 minutes, and a perfect representation of
Basho’s visionary American folk brilliance.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Georgia-born Blind Willie McTell defies all definitions of the prototype blues musician from the 1920s and 1930s. Unlike his contemporaries, McTell performed in various musical styles, including blues, ragtime, religious songs and hokum. He mastered the 12-string guitar with a unique and fluid, syncopated fingerstyle and superb slide technique, and maintained a smooth, laid-back tenor which distinguished him from the harsher sounding Delta singers. As such, McTell was able to model his approach while performing for a diverse audience of all races, whether on the streets or in a venue. An itinerant musician after leaving home, Blind Willie was discovered by an A&R man for prominent blues labels Okeh and Victor Records, and brought to Atlanta to record two sessions. One of these sessions produced what would become his signature song: “Statesboro Blues”, which has been widely celebrated and covered by the likes of the Allman Brothers, Taj Mahal, and the Youngbloods, and was inducted into the National Recording Registry for cultural significance in 2016. McTell continued to record and perform throughout Atlanta utilizing a variety of aliases throughout the 1920s and 1950s. He was interviewed for the Library of Congress by famed musicologist and folklorist John Lomax in 1940, and after decades with little commercial success, would pass in 1959. Since his death his influence has been felt and his songs covered across a slew of artists, from Bob Dylan to Ry Cooder to the White Stripes.

Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Straight outta Camden, NJ it’s Chocolate Star. Starting in 1980 Chocolate Star served as the outlet for the music of Gary Davis. Gary started Chocolate Star with his long time Camden compatriot Dennis “DJ” Jones after a few years spent under the wing of Peter Brown at P&P Records. But Gary’s storied involvement in music goes back further than that, having studied composition and arrangement with the late jazz great Manny Albam. Gary’s musical education actually started earlier than that as one of the people he learned the most from was his Uncle, famed jazz organist Richard “Groove” Holmes. When you combined the funk Mr. Davis inherited from “Groove”, with the street-sense of Peter Brown with the skillful composition and arrangements learned from Manny Albam, you’ve got Chocolate Star. Playing with a band composed of (very talented) people from his Camden neighborhood Davis released cut after cut of solid funk filled dance music. They’re all compiled here, from the Joe Sample inspired “Gee Dee”, to one of first commercial releases to lay the beat down with a drum machine in “The Pop”. Of course prominently featured is the legendary mover “Gotta Get Your Love”. “A Taste Of Chocolate: The Very Best of Gary Davis” has been assembled with Mr. Davis and whenever possible using Gary’s original masters. These cuts bridge the disco era, into Hop Hop and the earliest forms of House. Talented, versatile, and still able to get you out of your chair and shaking your behind...this is Chocolate Star. This is the very best of Gary Davis.

Parchman Farm
LP | 1969 | US | Reissue (Traffic)
21,99 €*
Release:1969 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Born Booker T. Washington White, Bukka’s trajectory as a blues performer follows a familiar template for his
time. Born in Mississippi, maybe in Houston, MS – maybe in Aberdeen, MS – maybe in 1902, maybe in 1909
or even 1906 he recorded throughout the 1930s. Bukka even recorded while incarcerated in the Mississippi
State Penitentiary aka Parchman Farm. Asked about his time at Parchman White commented “Well, I mostly
played guitar.”
During the 1940s and 50s as Blues moved from the Delta to Chicago, from rural to urban, Bukka’s career went
dormant. And then, like many of his time, his talent was “rediscovered” in the early 60s, in no small part thanks
to a brilliant guitarist in his own right, John Fahey. Performances and all new recordings happened throughout
the 60s, building interest in Bukka White’s Delta roots. This compilation of White’s best early material was first
issued in 1969 (1970 in the US), collecting Bukka’s 78s recorded for Vocalion and Okeh. His influence on rock
performers of that day cannot be understated. He opened for rock bands he’d inspired at venues like The
Fillmore, played his instrument in such a fashion that some said it’s like he was trying to destroy that guitar, his
most famous guitar, a 1933 National Duolian, was even known as “Hard Rock.” And then there’s the fact that
his song “Shake‘em On Down” was so influential on Led Zeppelin that they, “borrowed” from the song for both
“Hats Off To Roy Harper” and “Custard Pie.”
Bukka White was many things, a strong influence on his cousin B.B. King, a cotton picker, a mule driver, a hobo,
a player in the old Negro Leagues, a boxer, a preacher, a convict, a factory laborer and, as celebrated here,
one of America’s blues pioneers.
