Image: 1609643 Formed in Queens, NY in the early 1960s, The Exciters were a dynamic R&B quartet consisting of lead singer Brenda Reid and her producer/writer husband Herb Rooney, plus vocalists Carolyn Johnson and Lillian Walker. The group rose to prominence in 1962, when their hit single “Tell Him” rose to #4 on the U.S. pop chart.
The Exciters continued releasing quality music for years, including their 1969 RCA album Caviar And Chitlins, a vintage slice of soul / R&B from perhaps the most important era in the genre’s history. Incidentally, a few years later the album’s producer Herb Rooney would go on to produce and write one of hip-hop’s most sampled records ever, “Synthetic Substitution” by Melvin Bliss. Long out-of print, Caviar And Chitlins is now available on vinyl for the frst time in decades. Discover it now thanks to this official reissue from Nature Sounds.

Bochum Welt – April (RSD)

Veteran Italian hardware lover Bochum Welt returns with ‘April’, due on !K7 as their first ever Record Store Day release in April 2017. ‘April’ is a broad 16 track exploration of ambient and downtempo that revisits and re-edits a selection of old works as well as offering up brand new music – and sees the first release on vinyl of all tracks compiled here.
Real name Gianluigi Di Costanzo, Bochum Welt has long been experimenting with his various machines, and as far back as 1994 was releasing on Aphex Twin’s influential Rephlex label. He went on to put out many EPs and three full lengths there, as well as linking with BMG and Sony Music Japan. He is an accomplished musical engineer, sound designer and master of electronic atmospheres, and in his time he has made it into The Wire’s Top 15 albums of the year, and has also worked with the legendary Thomas Dolby’s California based Beatnik and Headspace Inc. Live, he has opened for Aphex Twin and Thomas Dolby, often the sketches on display in ‘April’ form the basis for Welt’s live show, having been transposed using various vintage pedals and sound manglers. All of these accomplishments are proven here across short but absorbing tracks which are all previously unreleased or newly reworked. A number of
the selected tracks here previously appeared on ‘R.O.B. ( Robot Operating Buddy)’ and on ‘Good Programs (To Be Coloured In Yellow)’, originally released on Rephlex in 2008 and 2013 respectively but never before on
vinyl. Among these, the likes of ‘Garden (NYC Mix)’ showcase a return to the originals with an inventive re-edit and re-invigoration. Additionally, ‘Ghost’ and ’Azure’ are brand new and previously unheard material from Bochum Welt – the former a beautiful daydream introduction to ‘April’, and the latter an equally atmospheric bookend to the release. Indeed, from crunchy beats overlaid with pixelated pads to blissfully organic and spring-like sound tracks via tender piano laced ambient numbers, the music on ‘April’ is never less than beautiful. It can be heavenly yet of this world, but also synthetic and computerised. Together, though, it makes for dynamic and standalone work that is utterly timeless. Expressive and personal throughout, this album is about sound research and melodic sensibility and is as technically awe inspiring as it is purely enjoyable.
‘April’ sees its release on clear blue vinyl on Record Store Day worldwide (22nd April 2017) through !K7

• Exclusive Record Store Day release
• Available for the first time on LP
• Clear blue vinyl

Dibiase – Baker’s Dozen
Saturday, February 13th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Dibiase – Baker’s Dozen

Image: 1602343 Fat Beats Records is proud to present Baker’s Dozen, an exclusive vinyl series that shines a light on the best minds of instrumental hiphop, ambient, and electronic music. Each installment gives one artist carte blanche to capture their signature sound.
Every volume’s 500-unitstrictly limited vinyl pressing features one artist and twelve tracks, but only 250 units will contain the thirteenth track — the eponymous “baker’s dozen bonus” — on a flexi disc. The LPs also come equipped with a 5×7” postcard insert that features a photo of the artist’s workspace along with the equipment used in their music-making process. Visually cohesive and packaged with the utmost attention to detail, Baker’s Dozen is a series that speaks up for artists whose craft renders voices superfluous, whose instrumentals alone suffice to make a statement.
Volume One highlights Los Angeles born / Sacramento based beat maker Dibiase, whose style is best described in his own words: “It’s crazy to think that my equipment collection and beat making
process started back in high school with just an 8 second Gemini sampler and a Sony Walkman. It was a super basic set up. Back then I used whatever I could get my hands on. Finding different samples, looping them up, running the layers back through the Walkman. Adding more layers and repeating that process until I had a beat. It worked. My process is a lot different now but in some ways it’s the same. I still do a lot of layering. I use a combination of hardware and software. Sometimes I start with a sample. Sometime I start with drums. It depends on my mood and the genre. Sometime I use a kit. Other times I will sample and layer drums, run them through another piece of equipment like the SP-12 or 404 to dirty them up, then dump them back into Ableton.
I really don’t have a set way of doing things musically. I like to experiment with different technics and styles. I like my music to have a certain sound. Most of the time I let the process happen naturally.”

The Hempolics – Green Line / News Readers
Friday, September 5th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Hempolics – Green Line / News Readers

Image: 1590753 Hempolics are back in action this time on new label home BBE. First up is the Green Line / News Readers ep the start of a slow build all leading up to their forthcoming new studio album.

The Hempolics are out to put those organic rootsy vibes back into electronic music
and bring something altogether different to the table, Green Line is just the
beginning…
Some of you will recognize Green Line as a song originally voiced by the late, great
Garnett Silk over Jackie Mittoo’s Hot Milk riddim. Here Grippa Laybourne has kept
the classic rhythm to the fore, with echo and rewinds all punctuating the vocal
delivered by members Nubiya (also of Leeds-London Afrobeat/hip-hop pioneers
Nubiyan Twist) and Dandelion (frontman of mercurial UK-reggae outfit
The Drop), complete with a toasting interlude. The sensibility, right from its opening
Barrington Levy-esque ‘bongo-didddly-ooooooaahh’, is early digital dancehall, but
as you’d expect from Grippa, well-known for his work with Cheeky Records, it also
has an effortless commercial sheen.
Overly capable B-side News Readers is no sideshow. Kicking straight in with “News
flash, there ain’t no cash, s’all gone on the wall”, it is a poignant statement of
disaffection with the negative buzz created by modern media or the “blues feeders”
as it’s better put by the song. Featuring the smooth and ear-pleasing soul Sony
signed and extended Hempolics crew LSK (AKA Leigh Steven Kenny) who also
provides artwork for the upcoming album. Produced with Grippa’s own unique
rhythm, this is an unashamedly a bouncy, upbeat number whose positive step
belies the scathing political commentary within. Another summer banger.
Grippa, Harry Collier, Nubiya and Dandelion formed the band in 2010 and Caused
an instant stir with their single Serious on the Reggae Roast label but the band now
rolls out as an 9-piece at full strength, with ranks often swelled by visits from various
international talents such as Maxi Jazz and Paulo Nutini to name a few. They have
gained a cult following through their tight as a tick live performances – honed
supporting Faithless’ final ever show in front of 4000 people at Brixton academy as
well numerous small but necessarily on point venues – is the best kept secret on the
UK’s live circuit today and it’s slowly getting let out of the bag.
There is a full album of material ready to drop, all recorded in back to basics fashion
throughout the bedrooms and home studios of the band, although the weather out
might be dull London-side it’s strictly sunshine vibes, resplendent with huge hooks
and festival-friendly choruses. In the mean time Green Line looks set to appeal to
both older reggae-heads and those younger fans who’ve adopted hip-hop and
dancehall as just another part of the pop firmament, with its massive crossover
appeal and slightly wistful but feel-good charm.
This is the first release for Hempolics on BBE and is part of the slow build to their
album release

Jimi Hendrix – People, Hell and Angels (200g)

Experience Hendrix LLC and Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, proudly announce the release of People, Hell & Angels, an essential new album premiering twelve previously unreleased studio recordings completed by guitarist Jimi Hendrix.
People, Hell & Angels, showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. Beginning in 1968, Jimi Hendrix grew restless, eager to develop new material with old friends and new ensembles. Outside the view of a massive audience that had established the Experience as rock’s largest grossing concert act and simultaneously placed two of his albums in the US Top 10 sales chart, Jimi was busy working behind the scenes to craft his next musical statement.

These twelve recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements – horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar – Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music. People, Hell & Angels, presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued and provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician and producer.

People, Hell & Angels, will be available Tuesday, March 5, 2013.

With an album title coined by Jimi Hendrix, People, Hell & Angels, reveals some of Hendrix’s post-Experience ambitions and directions as he worked with new musicians–including the Buffalo Springfield’s Stephen Stills, drummer Buddy Miles, Billy Cox (with whom Hendrix had served in the 101st US Army Airborne and later played on the famed R & B ‘chitlin circuit’ together) and others–creating fresh and exciting sounds for the next chapter in his extraordinary career.

People, Hell & Angels, is co-produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer and John McDermott. Kramer first met Hendrix at Olympic Studios in London in January 1967. Hendrix, who would have turned 70 on November 27 this year, developed a unique rapport with Kramer. As a result, Kramer engineered every album issued by the guitarist in his lifetime and recorded such famous Hendrix concerts as the Woodstock festival in August 1969. Since 1997, Kramer has teamed with

Janie Hendrix and John McDermott to oversee the release of each Jimi Hendrix album issued by Experience Hendrix.

The dozen previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix performances premiering on People, Hell & Angels, include ”Earth Blues,” ”Somewhere,” ”Hear My Train A Comin’,” ”Bleeding Heart,” ”Baby Let Me Move You,” ”Izabella,” ”Easy Blues,” ”Crash Landing,” ”Inside Out,” ”Hey Gypsy Boy,” ”Mojo Man” and ”Villanova Junction Blues.”

A musical companion piece and successor to 2010’s Valleys Of Neptune, the critically acclaimed album showcasing the artist’s final recordings with the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, People, Hell & Angels, offers tantalizing new clues as to the direction Hendrix was considering for First Rays Of The New Rising Sun, his planned double album sequel to 1968’s groundbreaking Electric Ladyland.

Unlike contemporaries such as the Beatles or Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix owned his songs and master recordings. He did not have to record his music at recording studios owned and operated by his record company. Hendrix spent countless hours recording his new music at new, independent music studios such as New York’s Record Plant and the Hit Factory. Hendrix was so focused on recording his music that, concurrent with nearly all of the sessions featured as part of People, Hell & Angels,, he was underwriting the construction of his own recording facility–the state of the art Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village.

Janie L. Hendrix, President/CEO of Experience Hendrix LLC, commented, ”We’re thrilled to be able to release People, Hell & Angels, during the celebration of the 70th anniversary of my brother’s birth. The brilliance of the album serves to underscore what we’ve known all along: that there has never been and never will be a musical force equal to his and that we cherish and take inspiration of what he left us both now and for many generations to come…simply eternity.”

People, Hell & Angels, provides us with further insight into the genius of Jimi Hendrix,” said Adam Block, President, Legacy Recordings. ”Working with new rhythm sections and instrumentation, Jimi Hendrix was opening up the horizons of his music, creating new sounds filled with endless possibilities.”

People, Hell & Angels, – Track by Track

Earth Blues:
Totally unlike the version first issued as part of Rainbow Bridge in 1971, this December 19, 1969 master take features just Hendrix, Billy Cox and Buddy Miles–stripped down funk at its very origin.

Somewhere:
This newly discovered gem was recorded in March 1968 and features Buddy Miles on drums and Stephen Stills on bass. Entirely different from any previous version fans have ever heard.

Hear My Train A Comin’:
This superb recording was drawn from Jimi’s first ever recording session with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles–the powerhouse rhythm section with whom he would later record the groundbreaking album Band Of Gypsys.

Jimi shared a deep love for the blues with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles. Both musicians understood Jimi’s desire to create what he described as a ‘new type of blues’. Jimi’s menacing lead guitar is the centerpiece of this dramatic addition to his remarkable legacy.

Bleeding Heart:
This Elmore James masterwork had long been a favorite of Jimi’s. He had performed the song earlier that year with the Experience in concert at the Royal Albert Hall and had attempted to capture the song in New York studio sessions during the weeks that followed.

Recorded at the same May 1969 session as ”Hear My Train A Coming,” the track conveys Jimi’s firm understanding of the arrangement and tempo he desired. Before they began, Jimi instructed Cox and Miles that he wanted to establish a totally different beat than the standard arrangement. He then kicked off this amazing rendition that was nothing like any other he had ever attempted.

Let Me Move You:
In March 1969, Jimi reached back to another old friend, saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood. Before he was discovered by Chas Chandler in the summer of 1966, Jimi had contributed guitar as a nondescript studio sideman for Youngblood and such infectious rhythm and blues styled singles such as ”Soul Food”.

This March 1969 session features Hendrix and Youngblood trading licks throughout this never before heard, high velocity rock and soul classic.

Izabella:
In the aftermath of the Woodstock festival, Jimi gathered his new ensemble, Gypsy Sun & Rainbows, at the Hit Factory in August 1969 with engineer Eddie Kramer. ”Izabella” had been one of the new songs the guitarist introduced at the Woodstock festival and Jimi was eager to perfect a studio version. This new version is markedly different from the Band Of Gypsys 45 rpm single master issued by Reprise Records in 1970 and features Larry Lee, Jimi’s old friend from the famed rhythm & blues ‘chitin’ circuit’, on rhythm guitar.

Easy Blues:
An edited extract of this gorgeous, free flowing instrumental was briefly issued as part of the long-out-of-print 1981 album Nine To The Universe. Now nearly twice as long, the track offers fans the opporutnity to enjoy the dramatic interplay between Jimi, second guitarist Larry Lee, Billy Cox and drummer Mitch Mitchell.

Crash Landing:
Perhaps known as the title song for the controversial 1975 album that featured Hendrix master recordings posthumously overdubbed by session musicians, this April 1969 original recording has never been heard before. Jimi is joined here by Billy Cox and drummer Rocky Isaac of the Cherry People to record this thinly veiled warning to his girlfriend Devon Wilson.

Inside Out:
Jimi was fascinated by the rhythm pattern that would ultimately take form as ”Ezy Ryder”. Joined here by Mitch Mitchell, Jimi recorded all of the bass and guitar parts for this fascinating song–including a dramatic lead guitar part amplified through a Leslie organ speaker.

Hey Gypsy Boy:
The roots of Jimi’s majestic ”Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)” trace themselves to this March 1969 recording. Unlike the posthumously overdubbed version briefly issued as part of Midnight Lightning in 1975, this is original recording that features Jimi joined by Buddy Miles.

Mojo Man:
Jimi would lend a hand to Albert & Arthur Allen, the vocalists known as the Ghetto Fighters, whom he had befriended in Harlem long before he achieved fame with the Experience. When the two recorded this inspired, previously unreleased master at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama they took it back to Hendrix at Electric Lady Studios. Jimi knew just what to do to elevate the recording beyond contemporary R & B to the new hybrid of rock, rhythm and blues he was celebrated for.

Villanova Junction Blues:
Long before his famous performance of this song at Woodstock, Jimi recorded this studio version with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles at the same May 1969 session which yielded ”Hear My Train A Comin”’ and ”Bleeding Heart” also featured on this album. Never fully finished, the song stands as an example of the fertile ideas he hoped to harness and bring to fruition.
