The Skints Swimming Lessons One of our favourite reggae/ska bands, The Skints, are back with the follow up album to 2015's FM. The Skints, have clawed their way up from the depths of the underground punk/ska scene to become a unique fixture on the global reggae stage. Drawing influences as wide as soul, pop, grime, and hardcore, their original brand of “tropical punk” has seen them evolve in to one of the hardest working and most respected bands in UK music. Produced by The Skints in collaboration with Mike "Prince Fatty" Pelanconi, Ben Lamdin, Jack Longman and Pete Miles. Mr Bongo CD | LP Signed

Powerline Journey / Double Journey Championed by DJs including Francois Kevorkian, David Mancuso, Larry Levan and more, it’s a record that, alongside tracks like Atmosfear’s ‘Dancing In Outer Space’, become synonymous with the UK influence on US club music at the time. A sound that many forward thinking DJs in New York, Chicago etc. embraced to stand out from the crowd and bring depth to the dance floor. Driving jazz/funk, legato bass, grooving beats, subtle keys, dubbed out percussion and guitar licks that bring you to a simple but infectious piano melody. Mr Bongo 12"
