Ady Suleiman Thoughts & Moments Vol. 1 Mixtape Recorded in Stockholm and produced by FAMILY_TIME and Maths Time Joy, who produced Best Friend, the mixtape follows the release of Ady’s critically acclaimed debut album, Memories in March 2018. Having worked on his debut album for some time, Ady wanted to release a collection of songs, ahead of writing and recording his second album. A deft songwriter and a singer with soulful brilliance, Ady Suleiman has a rich era-spanning appreciation of music, and an innate need to turn life experiences into narrative. His timelessly classic yet fresh sound and lyrical distinctiveness has garnered him a broad range of influential fans from both sides of the Atlantic - from Chance the Rapper, Leon Bridges and Joey Bada$$ through to Labrinth, Michael Kiwanuka, Laura Mvula and Lianne Le Havas. A collection of songs which originated as voice memos on his phone, Ady comments, “I wanted to make a project that is a bit more free, I originally wanted to do an interludes or outtakes project, but over time it changed form. Thoughts and Moments Vol 1 is the result. PEMBA LP Pre-Order

Pan Amsterdam / Iggy Pop / Leron Thomas MOBILE Pan Amsterdam gave us "The Pocket Watch". Even when revealing his condition and true identity to the public. This didn't stop the flow of interest and respect from new found fans as well as fellow contemporaries. Open Mike Eagle became an immediate fan and patron of Pan Am and took him on tour last Fall. They even cut a single together entitled, "No Snare". One of the stops during the tour was Texas Pan Am and Iggy Pop agreed to meet up and cut a track. "The one thing that comes to mind when travelling through Texas is its Texas Tea (oil)" Pan Am said while on break in the studio. "There's a lot of ways of living that rendezvous at the local gas station". It was as if Pan Am grew up with this knowledge since the cradle or something. This, undoubtedly, is the thought process behind the tune Iggy and Pan Am cut, " Mobile". DEF PRESSE 7"
Loyle Carner Not Waving, But Drowning The hugely anticipated second full length album from Loyle Carner, following on from his fantastic debut which made our top ten records of 2017. ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’, Loyle’s new album, gives yet more evidence - as if it were needed - of his razor-sharp flow and his unique storytelling ability. Yes, he can rap, but he allies that with the sensitivity of a poet, the observational skills of a novelist, and warmth of your best friend. The album opens with ‘Dear Jean’, a letter to his mother in which he’s telling her that he has found the love of his life, “a woman from the skies”, and he’s moving out. LP Pre-Order

Das EFX Hold It Down Double LP on 'green marbled' coloured vinyl. Hold It Down can be seen as the rebirth of Das EFX. The American hip-hop duo worked together with acclaimed producers as DJ Premier and Pete Rock. The beats aren’t the only superior factor of this album, the lyrics are just as good. It’s one of those underground classics which didn’t came the whole way to reach the surface. But nowadays it can be seen as one of the finer hip-hop albums from the early nineties. It is an uncompromisingly and raw album, where Das EFX changed his style to one with harder edges. Hold It Down is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on green marbled (Solid blue, yellow & red mixed) coloured vinyl. LP
