Run DMC Raising Hell Run-D.M.C.'s Raising Hell remains the turning point at which hip-hop crashed through mainstream barriers and never left. Anchored by the crossover smash "Walk This Way," the 1986 blockbuster still sounds like a revolution unfolding in real time. It has everything – hard-rock riffs, turntable scratching, itchy rhythms, hit singles – not the least of which are the trio's invigorating raps and inseparable chemistry. And now it's the first rap record afforded audiophile treatment, courtesy of Mobile Fidelity's simply illin' analog edition. Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3,000 copies and 2000 SACD, the unsurpassed reissue label's 180g 45RPM 2LP set elevates Raising Hell to sonic heights on par with its musical and cultural significance. Ranked the 123rd Greatest Album of All Time by Rolling Stone, 43rd on Pitchfork's Greatest Albums of the 1980s, one of the Top 100 Albums of All Time by TIME – and included on "Best of" lists by Spin, Paste, XXL, Entertainment Weekly, and basically every other significant media outlet – the triple-platinum effort rocks the house.

Modusoperandi Endless “As advertised, we’re going to be introducing in just a moment one of the top jazz groups in the whole world, they play all around the whole world too...“ Redmist, DJ Perez, Fso & Gozt are Modusoperandi and “Endless” is their debut studio album. Performed live on the Chilean S-Word Community Skratch Music Tour in January 2020, at the height of the ongoing Chilean revolution, the album was fuelled by the collective energy that has been steadily building throughout the country. “When do you get a chance to practice? I don’t get a chance to practice. That’s a serious sacrifice.” Modusoperandi's mentality is that of a jazz band which performs using turntables as the primary instrument. Passion is always high, and time is always short... each take is the real raw deal. Every member of the band is involved in numerous groups and projects, and a diverse range of styles and influences are found meshed together in these wondrous and inspirational tracks. The skratch composition tool “Phonosophy” (CNP021) was released by Modusoperandi in late 2019, and Endless was conceived using this scratch tool as an essential component of the creative process. The A side of this album was recorded in Berlin just before the 2019 Community Skratch Games in Galway where the band’s performance of these first five tracks were the absolute highlight of CSG that year. The A side tracks are Cantina, Marienfelde, Never say the S-Word, Blue Dooms and Absurdo. They take the listener deep down the rabbit hole that is turntablism and jazz fused together by four of the strongest established turntable musicians that perform today. The B side tracks are Oldish, Endless, Jungle and Malditos. They explore fresh directions based on previously explored ideas... an eternal loop in perfect balance, a constant changing landscape of rhythmic ideas expressed in brass, stuttered drums and waveforms cut under a stylus. The B side was recorded in Santiago, Chile just before the S-Word Community Skratch Music Tour kicked off. Mastered by D. Perez, art by Fso.

Swarvy Sunny Days Blue Philadelphian multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer Swarvy makes his solo debut on Kamaal Williams's imprint Black Focus with a stunning new EP entitled Sunny Days Blue, his first release as the primary vocalist. Smoked-out sound beds and lofi guitars sit gently with Swarvy’s voice, creating a juxtaposition of melancholic, yet sweet, melodies that loop in your mind’s ear long after the record stops spinning. Bones opens with a stripped back rhythm section and existential observations referencing the human condition of overthinking, a recurring theme throughout the EP. Cool, No Compute and Smile subtly infuse jazz, funk and hip hop elements, while New Moon plays out as a low slung hypnotic hymn echoing gracefully into the record’s closer Ginger - a meditative ambient spiritual for solo piano. Since relocating to Los Angeles in 2015, Swarvy produced a variety of records via DJ House Shoes’ Street Corner Music, Leaving Records and Fresh Selects. His writing and engineering credits extend to dozens of tracks by artists such as Maxo, Earl Sweatshirt, Nia Andrews, Mndsgn, Liv.e and the late, legendary Tony Allen. Black Focus LP Pre-Order
Plan B The Defamation Of Strickland Banks (10th Anniversary) Double LP is on 'ox blood' coloured vinyl. The 10th anniversary edition of the classic record from Plan B, released on National Album Day on 'ox-blood' coloured vinyl. A truly defiant figure in the world of music, Plan B’s diverse creativity is inexhaustible. His raw, incendiary debut album, Who Needs Actions When You Got Words broke new ground for UK hip hop in 2006, a loud, proud, obscenity-riddled scream of anger and pride from the streets of East London. But a part of Ben always stayed faithful to the soul he’d first heard as a child, and his sophomore album The Defamation Of Strickland Banks saw him marry the two together with astounding success, achieving quadruple-platinum status, hitting the #1 album spot and selling over 1.4 million copies in the UK alone, plus seeing him win both a BRIT and three Ivor Novello’s. His 2012 directorial debut (and accompanying album) iLLManors saw him smashing boundaries with his creative style of overlapping stories and interweaving rap-narrative, boldly addressing socio-political issues with his often brutal cultural commentary, seeing Ben nominated for his fifth BRIT Award, being nominated for his first Mercury Music prize, and once again hitting #1 in the UK album chart.
