Arsonists – As The World Burns & Lost In The Fire
Friday, February 16th, 2018 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Arsonists – As The World Burns & Lost In The Fire

Image: 1617755 2018 will mark the return of the original Bushwick Bomb Squad! Legendary emcee crew, the Arsonists have announced a double-album release via Below System Records.

This will include a deluxe edition of the group’s classic debut album “As The World Burns” (released in 1999) which yielded such underground anthems as “Blaze”, “Halloween” and the “Session.”

It will also include “Lost In The Fire”, which will include many unreleased gems including tracks with J-Live, High & Mighty and Mass Influence as well as six new tracks from the group (the first in over fifteen years!) with guest appearances from Vinnie Paz (Jedi Mind Tricks) and Ill Bill (La Coka Nostra, Non-Phixion).

Composed of D-Stroy, Q-Unique, Freestyle, Jise and Swel these Brooklyn spitters were among the most creative wordsmiths and energetic live performers during an extremely fertile period of boom-bap that included the Lyricist Lounge, Rawkus Records, Fat Beats Records and the Stretch & Bobbito show. On the group’s motivation, D-Stroy revealed “we were focused so much on our love of hip-hop that it kept us off the streets, away from drugs, all of us in my parent’s house rhyming and recording.”

After appearing on the Stretch & Bobbito Show, Bobbito Garcia was so impressed as to sign the group to his Fondle ‘Em Records to release several classic singles on wax. The results allowed the crew to hit the road through North America and Europe, many of them leaving New York and the United States for the first time ever. The group toured with such notables as Public Enemy, The Roots and the Wu-Tang Clan.

Top taste-making Indie rock label Matador Records who developed such groups as Guided By Voices, Pavement and Mogwai wanted the Arsonists to be the first hip-hop group on the label. “As The World Burns” was the result of this partnership. Critically acclaimed and well respected, speaking on the enduring legacy of the album, D-Stroy said “I think it’s one of the last albums to champion the four elements of hip-hop, it’s basically our love letter to the culture and a lot of heads identify with that love.”

Though the group dissolved by 2002, the members have kept heads ringing in the entertainment industry including solo releases and forays into film, TV and radio. Summing it up D recalls “I was hosting an event for Nike and one of the executives came up to me and spit one of Q-Unique’s verses verbatim to me. It’s like a whole generation of young heads and college students grew up on our music and are doing something for the movement as well.”

Honeyfeet – Orange Whip
Friday, February 16th, 2018 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Honeyfeet – Orange Whip

Image: 1617759 Wah Wah 45s will release ORANGE WHIP, the new album by their latest signing, Honeyfeet. The outfit, who have received praise from the likes of The Guardian, have also set festivals alight up and down the country with their unique melange of sounds.

For the last couple of years the Honeyfeet (who name from a line in the Blues Brothers film) have been a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester based musicians. This genre-defying band incorporate styles including jazz, folk and hip hop into their music. Someone once called it Folk-Hop and Barrelhouse-pop, and that’s just vague enough to make sense.

The band are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly – also known for her work with Real World artists Afro Celt Sound System and The Breath – “a remarkable singer and flautist who…can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul” (The Guardian). The line up is completed by Rik Warren (vocals/harmonica), Gus Fairbairn (tenor sax), Biff Roxby (trombone/vocals), Ellis Davies (guitar), Lorien Edwards (bass guitar), John Ellis (keyboards) and David Schlechtriemen (drums).

ORANGE WHIP finds the band at their most incredibly diverse. Opening with recent single Sinner (received radio play from the likes of 6 Music and BBC Manchester), which showcases Ríoghnach’s extraordinary agile and emotive voice, the album moves with dizzying swagger on songs covering a wide range of subjects. Quickball tells the story of being so infatuated with someone you want to eat them, while Whatever You Do addresses the fear-mongering of the press over folk-hop and oom-pah, and Demons deals with love and redemption on a blast of harmonica-driven country, sung by Rik Warren.

Rik also takes lead vocal on a re-working of Robert Johnson’s Love in Vain, a song showing Honeyfeet’s more reflective side, his Skip James-esque drawl bringing an eerie quality to the lyrics about a doomed relationship. The band reshape the progression too, swinging the tune slowly and creating a little underground blues club in the midst of the recording.

Elsewhere the band go all New Orleanian on Colonel Hathi’s Trunk Juice, a sinister tale inspired by trombonist Biff Roxby’s horn riff recalling one of the elephants of The Jungle Book. Further showcasing their virtuosity, on one of the album’s best moments – especially the nuanced vocal performance by Ríoghnach, who was raised on Irish folk – on Hunt and Gather the band do their own take on prog-folk, with a flute and cello melody running alongside a brass counterpoint.

Ríoghnach turns in another incredible vocal on the album’s final track – future single Meet Me On The Corner. With a pounding beat, it is one of the album’s main highlights. Guitar and brass propels Ríoghnach to sing lyrics that could be straight out of the playground, but suggest something deeper, possibly mystical even, in it’s demands for a dalliance on the street. It closes the album on a high note, for a band who have that rare ability to distil all their disparate influences, while always sounding like their unique selves.

ORANGE WHIP heralds the sound of a remarkable band going overground.

Del The Funky Homosapien & Tame One – Parallel Uni-Verses (Colored Vinyl)
Sunday, January 14th, 2018 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Del The Funky Homosapien & Tame One – Parallel Uni-Verses (Colored Vinyl)

Image: 1617249 Remember the old-school Marvel Team-Up comic book which paired,
say, Spider-Man with Thor, Wolverine with the Human Torch, or the Hulk
and Daredevil? In the spirit of those classic collaborations, Gold Dust
announces Parallel Uni-Verses, a joint effort between Hieroglyphics
founder Del The Funky Homosapien and original Artifacts emcee Tame
One. Produced entirely by Parallel Thought, the album’s ten tracks return
to a time when inventiveness, creativity, funky beats—and, above all,
lyricism—ruled hip-hop.
Oakland’s Del The Funky Homosapien is one of the creators of the
alternative rap genre, a perennial fan favorite who, in addition to releasing
four solo albums—including 1992’s seminal, gold-selling I Wish My
Brother George Was Here–and two group albums with Hieroglyphics,
was featured on the Gorillaz’ epononymous, platinum-selling debut and
Dan the Automator’s sci-f-themed concept album Deltron 3030.
Newark’s Tame One is best known as one-half of the Artifacts, a graffitiwriting hip-hop duo active in the mid- and late-90s, whose output includes
the classic singles “Wrong Side of Da Tracks” and “The Ultimate.” In recent
years, Tame has been a member of two underground supergroups: the
Weatherman (with Cage, Camu Tao, and Aesop Rock), and the Leak
Brothers (with Cage).
Parallel Uni-Verses is that rare rap album which transcends tired clichés
and maintains traditional hip-hop values without seeming retro or passé.
“Man, I ain’t even gonna be egotistical like that and try to say that we
are trying to usher in some new revival of whatever,” Del says. However,
he adds, “I’m a say this: we ARE the element that is missing, not [just]
because I said so. That’s what’s up, we didn’t sell out for all the luxury
and monetary gains. The original ways, we kept at and built upon those.

MF DOOM – Operation: Doomday
Monday, January 8th, 2018 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on MF DOOM – Operation: Doomday

Image: 1617179 1999 classic debut album presented as a deluxe set, with Seven 7-Inches, 2 unique DOOM 45 adapters, new artwork by original cover artist Lord Scotch, and customer leatherette outer box with silver-foil DOOM mask and logo

As the ‘90s came to a close, hip-hop music was thriving in two separate ecosystems. On one side, Puffy’s Bad Boy Records, Roc-A-Fella and the rest of the major label world was pumping plenty of shiny music by bling-ed out, made for MTV stars. These pop stars sold truckloads, but it felt like a lot of “empty calories.”
On the other side of the coin, a very strong underground scene had emerged in the mid-1990s worldwide. Hungry, innovative artists who had no use for the major label system thrived artistically in this ever-growing pond, ranging from Dr. Octagon and Jurassic 5 in Cali, Atmosphere and the Rhymesayers crew in the Midwest, and Company Flow and Definitive Jux in the East, among others. As the decade closed, from somewhere even beyond both of those poles, a man who would come to rule many corners the underground universe for the next two decades appeared from depths that were darker
than most of his fans would ever know: MF DOOM. The artist formerly known as Zev Love X of major-label-but-underground heroes KMD had disappeared from most fans’ view in around 1994 – after his brother and artistic co-producer Subroc was killed, and the group’s Black Bastards album was shelved by Elektra. By 1997, DOOM started peeking his head up from the grime, with no-distribution singles on Bobbito Garcia’s Fondle ‘Em label like “Red & Gold” and
“Dead Bent.”
As other appearances and singles trickled through the underground, by 1999 the album Operation: Doomsday appeared seemingly out of nowhere, again on Fondle ‘Em, and fans who actively ran from the glitzier side of rap music ate it up like they had been on a hunger strike. Musically raw and at-times off-kilter, former Fondle ‘Em singles like the aforementioned tunes plus “Gas Drawls,” “Hey!” and “Go With The Flow” were joined by a whole slew of new tunes. It all sounded familiar but new at the same time.
It shouldn’t be overlooked that in addition to the dusty, wobbling music, the former Zev Love X completely changed up his vocal style on the tracks that would land on Doomsday, chopping his flow up and bringing a whole new approach to his formerly liquid, and often humorous lyricism.
Standouts on this bonafide underground masterwork are honestly hard to pick, since fans each have their own DOOM faves. But “Doomsday,” “Rhymes Like Dimes,” “The MIC,” the experimental “Tick, Tick…”
(with MF Grimm) and “Red & Gold” (with King Ghidra) are great examples of how stretched-out this visionary album is. This new 7-Inch Collection edition via Get On Down includes seven 7-Inches that run in order of the songs from the original issue (including interludes). The records are housed in a custom black leatherette outer-box that is laced with silver-foil renderings of DOOM’s legendary mask and bubble graffiti logo on the outside, and a never-seen-before DOOM drawing by the legendary Lord Scotch, the original artist behind the Operation: Doomsday art, on the inside.
In addition to holding the 7-inch vinyl, the box also contains two metallic-silver colored 45 adapters, each a 3D rendering of DOOM’s gladiator mask. Picture sleeves for each of the seven pieces of wax all feature brand new work by Lord Scotch (Blake Lethem aka KEO aka Scotch79th) as well: new hand-lettered track listings on one side, and incredible new color illustrations on the flip that, when laid side-by-side, fit together like puzzle pieces, to form one large image.

RECORD ONE: A: The Time We Faced Doom B: Doomsday
RECORD TWO: A: Rhymes Like Dimes B: The Finest
RECORD THREE: A: Go With The Flow B: Tick, Tick…
RECORD FOUR: A: Red & Gold B: Who You Think I Am

FEATURES:
• Seven 7-inches
• Custom black leatherette outer box with silver-foil rendered images of DOOM’s famed mask and logo
• Two never-before-commercially available silver-colored DOOM 45 adapters
• Each 7-inch has a custom sleeve designed by legendary graf artist Lord Scotch (Blake Lethem), who drew the original Operation: Doomsday cover. Available from 09.03.2018

Cajmere – Brighter Days (Remixes) (feat. Dajae)
Friday, December 15th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Cajmere – Brighter Days (Remixes) (feat. Dajae)

Image: 1616750 BBE are excited to present the first in a new series of strictly limited 7” pressings exploring some of the most iconic House tracks of all time, as chosen by DJ Spinna and Kai Alce. 1st release features the iconic Cajmere & includes a Masters at Work Mix.

Tracklist:
A (North Side) Cajmere feat. Dajae – Brighter Days (Masters At Work Mix – Kai Alce’s Edit)
B (South Side) Cajmere feat. Dajae – Brighter Days (Underground Goodies Mix)

BBE are excited to present the first in a new series of strictly limited 7” pressings exploring some of the most iconic House tracks of all time, as chosen by DJ Spinna and Kai Alce. With global interest in ‘45s on the rise, ‘Foundations’ aims to fill those frustrating gaps in all our collections by releasing specially crafted edits of classic house tracks on 7” vinyl for the very first time.
Part one of the ‘Foundations’ series celebrates Chicago producer Cajmere’s early masterpiece ‘Brighter Days’ featuring Dajae. Best known in recent years by his ‘Green Velvet’ moniker, Curtis Jones has been blazing a trail through House and Techno since launching his Cajual imprint back in ’91. Reaching #2 on Billboard’s dance chart in 1992, ‘Brighter Days’ was Cajmere’s breakthrough hit and continues to educate and inspire producers, DJs and dancers to this day.
With artwork lovingly adapted from the original 12”, the record’s ‘North Side’ features a deft Kai Alce edit of the monstrous 10 minute Masters At Work ‘Brighter Days’ remix. Introducing those distinctive skipping, syncopated rhythms later adopted by UK Garage pioneers, Louie’s MAW mix has lost none of its dance-floor impact over the last 25 years. Lurking on the ‘South Side’ you can find the raw, potent ‘Underground Goodies Mix’, a production credited by Rashad and other pioneers as the catalyst for Chicago’s ‘footwork’ movement.
About the series (in their own words): Kai: “Well my interest in 7”s is new. I have been a collector of 12”s all my life, House & Disco. Being inspired by JRocc after playing one of Discogs’ Crate Diggers events, my initial focus was on finding House 7”s which proved to be harder than I thought… Most were not available in 7” format & the popular ones that existed were quite rare. So now me and Spinna are trying to fill some of those empty spaces.” Spinna: “45 DJing has become a new excitement among vinyl DJs, but although endlessly repressed on other formats, a few classic house titles have simply never been pressed on 7” vinyl. We ran our ’45 wish list past BBE and the rest is history. When creating the edits we tried to imagine we worked for the original record label and were cutting the ‘radio edit’.
The aim: to keep the heart of the track intact while reducing the length to fit the format.”

Various – Run The Length Of Your Wildness
Friday, December 8th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Run The Length Of Your Wildness

Image: 1616887 Run The Length Of Your Wildness is a weekly dance party held every
Monday night at Underground SF in San Francisco, which initially
launched on August 24th, 2015 in a small rave cave known as The
Basement — formerly and infamously known as 222 Hyde — in San
Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. Friends and 100% Silk labelmates
Cherushii (Chelsea Faith) and Roche (Ben Winans) started the night as
an opportunity to DJ more often, honing their skills in the process. But
thanks to the intimate setting, The Basement’s supportive owner and
staff, and the wonderful crowd who attended on a regular basis, Run The
Length Of Your Wildness became so much more than that: a community
of music-obsessed weirdos, nerds, scene fixtures, first-time ravers, and
eccentrics, leavened by the occasional random partygoer passing by,
taking a chance, and finding themselves hooked on their new Monday
night mainstay.
We book primarily local DJs and live acts, and make an effort to book
artists and DJs who have never performed out before. We encourage
experimentation, and we’re proud to say Run The Length Of Your
Wildness has become a place for electronic musicians and DJs to
showcase their expressive freedom and GO WILD!
On December 2, 2016, Cherushii, Nackt (Johnny Igaz) and several other
beautiful souls were lost in the Oakland Ghost Ship warehouse fire.
The loss is beyond devastating — we miss our friends dearly. The San
Francisco electronic music community has come together to do whatever
we can to champion their legacy, and Run The Length Of Your Wildness
is proud to be an enduring part of that legacy.
Hobo Camp is proud to be able to partner with Run The Length Of Your
Wildness to produce a release containing music from Cherushii and
Nackt, to preserve their legacy and contributions.

Various – As 10 Mais Boogie Vol.1
Friday, November 24th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – As 10 Mais Boogie Vol.1

Image: 1616677 What exactly is Boogie? Is it a genre, an era, a style? Colours, clothes,
textures are all part of its make up. Boogie is the “top shelf” music of the
80s. Anything from this era that brings along Moog synths, vocoders,
DX7s, or triggered Oberheim drum sounds, is Boogie! Brasil has a huge
archive of underground dancefloor heat. Dierent styles of music ranging
from Macumba to Samba, MPB to Pop, Electro to early Hip-Hop, were
all stung by this Brasilian “Boogie Bug”, cleverly orchestrated by geniuses
of the style, Robson Jorge, Lincoln Olivetti, Junior Mendes, Mister Sam,
Sergio Sá, to name a few, were the backbone of uncountable projects by
big names of Brasil ´s pop and underground music scene during the 80s.
This compilation brings together a bunch of non-obvious “compactos”
(33 RPM 7” singles), most of them, promos, which never saw the light
of record store shelves, but instead sat for years in the dead-vaults of
radio stations or ended up in second hand shops, flea markets, church
basements to junkyards.
We, SDB Discos, are excited to put together this eclectic selection inspired
by the best in Brazilian 80s music. In this compilation we gathered 10
rare Boogie hits from very well know maestros of the genre such as Tim
Maia, Cassiano, Tony Bizarro and other underground artists like Elizio
de Buzios with his only recording, the funky boogie joint “Tamanqueiro”,
Gaby Whiskadão featuring the disco hit “Super Amor”, the B-Boy Crew
Electric Boogies with their very fresh early 80s rap hit “Break Mandrake”
as well as the very obscure group called Let ´s Dance featuring their
version of “Riguera” sung in Portuguese entitled “Dance com a Gente”.
Even after so many years, Brasil’s most obscure boogie gem is yet to be
found on a long diggin’ session thru thousands of records full of weird
looking haircuts, somewhere near São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. This
project is dedicated to all the “Boogie Heads” doing what they do best,
keep searching!

1. Vê Se Me Esquece – Tony Blue
2. Tamanqueiro – Elizio de Búzios
3. Estou Livre – Tony Bizarro
4. Velho Guerreiro – Rubão Sabino
5. Break Mandrake – Electric Boogies
6. Dance Com a Gente – Let ´s Dance
7. Ta Dando Mole Zé – Cassiano
8. Macaco Pesado – Newton Drinckwater

Black Moon – Enta Da Stage (Remixes)
Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Black Moon – Enta Da Stage (Remixes)

Image: 1615792 2017 Remixed & Remastered Edition / Composed of members Buckshot, 5ft, and DJ Evil Dee, Black Moon simultaneously kicked off and defined the rap renaissance of New York with the release of Enta Da Stage in 1993. Whereas plenty of earlier groups had spit rage-filled rhymes to tear down the world’s unjust establishments, no one had evoked brooding pathos or introspective anger quite like Black Moon. Underground hip-hop might have been dominated by the sunny sound of G-Funk when Enta Da Stage dropped, but from then on the scene turned to the dark side. Black Moon was rising.

Earlier this year, Fat Beats Records presented the definitive Enta Da Stage box set, which was reissued for the first time across three formats (6xLP, 3xCD and 3xCassette). This album is the complete encapsulation of an era for anyone seeking to understand the origin and the essence of New York’s Golden Age.The box set included vocals, instrumentals and remixes plus extensive liner notes by David Ma (Pitchfork, Wax Poetics) with rare and unreleased visual ephemera in an 18 page booklet. The story of Black Moon, alongside their peers Biggie, Big L, Nas, Kool G Rap, and Wu Tang, reminds us that the bleakest times produce the most profound agents of cultural change. And as we stand at the precipice of a new age of anxiety, Enta Da Stage has never been more relevant… or more necessary.

Although Black Moon would go on to release three more albums – and its members would go on to greatness with Da Beatminerz, Boot Camp Klik, and various solo projects – Enta Da Stage remains the perfect distillation of tight lyrical menace, rowdy crew hooks, stripped down breaks, and deep basslines on all of its fourteen tracks. Although Enta Da Stage might stand in the shadow of East Coast albums such as Enter the Wu- Tang (36 Chambers), Illmatic, Liquid Swords, Ready to Die, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, and The Infamous, history will remember that Enta Da Stage preceded those releases. To understand Enta Da Stage is to understand the origin and the spirit of New York hip-hop once and for all.
