New Releases

Plenty of fresh releases in this week, Mura Masa releases his second album, just ahead of his live show on Saturday in Kingston. Georgia's new album really hits the spot, (she was great live at the Fighting Cocks this week too) plus other album heat from Andres (which includes much sought after track 'New For U'), Fat Freddy's Drop, Calibre, Lemon Jelly main man Fred Deakin and a much needed re-issue of Tom Middleton & Mark Pritchard's classic ambient techno Global Communication masterpiece.

Singles wise we have a bunch of new hip hop classics on 7" (Dead Prez, Ice Cube, Q-Tip, Kid Frost...) plus a new solid East End Dubs 12" and some deep dub business on a Mala, Natty & Benjamin Zephaniah collaboration on limited label.
