The Last Skeptik – Thanks For Trying
Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Last Skeptik – Thanks For Trying We are pleased to announce the signing of DJ/producer The Last Skeptik.
Following in the label’s footsteps of releasing instrumental led hip-hop albums from J Dilla, Pete Rock & Will.i.am, Skeptik will be releasing his largely instrumental album entitled “Thanks For Trying” in the spring of 2013. Backed with an orchestra’s worth of musicians, the hip hop-rooted production is taken to cinematic heights. This album will be a classic.
(For those unfamiliar with The Last Skeptik’s work, he has worked with a varied list of musicians, including The King Blues, Sway, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Jehst and Lowkey, and has remixed everyone from The Streets to Marina & The Diamonds.
The Last Skeptik has come a long way from building his first beats whilst skipping class at school. From releasing his debut single in 2004 featuring
Sway, he has been steadily gaining fans with his production prowess.
Fast forward to 2012 and The Last Skeptik released the critically acclaimed “How Not To Make A Living” album with rapper Rewd Adams, with lead single “Everything’s OK” being supported by SBTV, BBC Radio One, RWD, Jump Off and KISS100. Now he is gearing up to release his second album, a highly anticipated instrumental project for BBE Records in 2013 which also features as guest Jehst, a cult hero (NME, 2011) and legend of hip hop from the UK. He has influenced nearly every modern rap artist in the country with classic albums “Return of the Drifter”, “Falling Down” and “Nuke Proof Suit”, and runs the consistently successful YNR Production label. Gavin Fitzjohn also features having previously written with and toured the globe with Paolo Nutini.
Add to that residencies at London’s best hip hop night Livin Proof and new Knowledge and a blinding showcase at SXSW and U.S. tour, and 2012 has been a big year, with 2013 fast approaching we are very excited to have The Last Skeptik join a growing roster of London based acts all signed to the label. From 2007’s “Broken Window” collaborative album with rapper Verb T to 2010’s genre-flouting “Same Day Different Sh*t”, a compilation of commissioned remixes of major label artists, Skeptik has been busy writing, remixing and producing for a bevy of world famous artists such as Gorillaz, Enter Shikari and Kate Nash.

Various – Sweet As Broken Dates: Lost Somali Tapes (2LP)
Friday, July 21st, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Sweet As Broken Dates: Lost Somali Tapes (2LP) In 1988, on the eve of a two decade civil war, Somalia’s authoritarian ruler Siad Barre launched punishing air strikes on the north of the country, known today as Somaliland, in response to agitations for independence. The bombing leveled the entire city. Barre targeted Radio Hargeisa to prevent any kind of central communication system that could organize a resistance.
With the attack imminent, a few brave radio operators and dedicated vanguards of Somali culture knew the archives, containing over half a century of Somali music had to be preserved. Thousands upon thousands of cassette tapes and master reels were quickly removed from the soon-to-be targeted buildings. They were dispersed to neighboring countries like Djibouti and Ethiopia, and buried deep under the ground to withstand even the most powerful airstrikes.
“We buried them in the ground so the bomb’s won’t hit,” one former leading journalist with Radio Hargeisa told us.
These audio artifacts were excavated and recalled from their foreign shelters only very recently. Some of those recordings are now kept safe in the 10,000-strong cassette tape archive of the Red Sea Foundation, the largest collection of Somali cassettes in the world, in Somaliland’s capital, Hargeisa. The Ostinato Records team digitized a large portion of the archive, distilling 15 songs that reveal the panoramic diversity of styles and sophistication of Somali musicianship.
Over a millennia of trade in the Indian Ocean invited the cultures of the Arabian Peninsula, Persia, India, Southeast Asia, and even China to slowly work their melodies, scales, and sounds into Somalia’s rich musical repertoire. Each track is a keen illustration of a carefully refined, rarely revealed cultural crossroads of the world.
The archive offered a living window to the Mogadishu of the 1970s and 1980s, when the coastal capital glistened as the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean,” when wine flowed freely. With its iconic ivory-colored architecture and crescent beaches overlooking the Indian Ocean, Mogadishu was home to the lavish Al Uruba and Jazira sea side hotels, where youthful bands like Iftiin, Sharero, and Dur Dur serenaded cosmopolitan crowds at some of the most elegant nightclubs in East Africa. These damaged cassettes evoked memories of the revered national theater, where Waaberi Band provided unforgettable soundtracks.
Mogadishu’s nightlife culture was rich and booming. Raucous rhythms, rugged horns, celestial synthesizers, and stalking baselines came alive alongside majestic voices like Mahmud “Jerry” Hussen and powerful and adored female singers like Faadumo Qaasim, Hibo Nuura, and Sahra Dawo. Somali music of this era is set apart by its empowerment of women. Female singers, often more prolific than their male counterparts, are inseparable from its evolution. Half the compilation is sung by women, their voices often compared in Somali poetry to the sweetness of broken dates. Poetry, intrinsic to the cultural fabric, forms the foundation of Somali songwriting.
Somali music’s golden age, curiously, occurred under a socialist military dictatorship, which effectively nationalized the music industry. A thriving scene was owned entirely by the state. Music was recorded for and by national radio stations and only disseminated through public broadcasts or live performances. Private labels were virtually non-existent. This music was never made available for mass release. Almost all recorded material came from original masters or homemade recordings of radio broadcasts. As a result, most of it has never been heard outside Somalia and the immediate region.
During the Cold War, Somalia drifted between Soviet and American support — and a decade of U.S. backing allowed soul and funk to capture the imagination of Somali youth, adding the final touch on this masterpiece era.
This project took our team to Mogadishu, Hargeisa, Djibouti, and across the Somali diaspora in Europe, the United States, and the Middle East. For the last year, from Minnesota to Mogadishu to Malaysia, we have tracked down the musicians, songwriters, composers, former government officials, and quirky personalities that colored Somali music life. Their words and stories are revealed in a 15,000-word liner note booklet — the only document of its kind to cover this era of Somali music in depth.
Alongside the story of Somalia’s music before the civil war, the selection is also focused on the pan-Somali sound. Spread over much of the Horn of Africa, Somali language and culture transcend arbitrary borders. Somali singers from Djibouti were at home in Mogadishu.
This compilation seeks to revive the rightful image, history, and identity of the Somali people, detached from war, violence, piracy, and the specter of a persistent threat. These 15 tracks should serve as a necessary starting point.

Various – Function Underground (RSD)
Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Function Underground (RSD) FUNCTION UNDERGROUND – The Black and Brown American Rock Sound 1969-1974
14 tracks by Jimi Macon, Black Maffia, Blacklites and more, many reissued for the first time. Includes a 16 page booklet with extensive notes on an overlooked and important portion of rock n’ roll’s history & a Download card to WAV files of the full album.
Nearly everyone in the world can rattle off the great African-American musical forms. Jazz, blues, R&B, soul, hip-hop, house, gospel. One influential genre is always left off of the
list: a folk music known as rock n’ roll. Rock n’ roll was a term originally coined to market the white-friendly version of a genre that already existed, prior to 1965, the line between
rock n’ roll and R&B was thin: Ike Turner recorded and released “Rocket ‘88’ ” in 1951 and, while its Chess Records release reached number one on the Billboard R&B chart, it is
regarded by many as the first rock n’ roll record.
The Great Divide between R&B and rock n’ roll came after the Beatles and the British Invasion decimated the Top 40 chart in 1964. Simultaneously, R&B entered a new phase, soon
to be labeled “soul,” which upped the music’s gospel quotient and turned its frantic twang. So somewhere in the mid to late-1960s, rock n’ roll became perceived as something for
the Caucasian kids. When Jimi Hendrix and Arthur Lee made the scene, they were said to be black musicians entering into a white world. While that couldn’t be farther from the truth,
that false dichotomy has existed in America’s popular conscious ever since, to the point where the idea of a black rock musician is on the level with the idea of a black cowboy.
In the mid-1960s, funk replaced soul as the rhythm that was going to move the world. We know all its progenitor – James Brown, The Meters, Kool & The Gang – and their
innovations: the syncopated, 4/4 dance between the bass and drums, horns repurposed as percussion, chicken-scratch and wah-wah guitar. We can trace where they came from.
But there is one crucial funk influence that no one seems to want to acknowledge – a devil-may-care attitude we can attribute to rock n’ roll. It’s not a stretch to say that funk is the
African-American answer to psychedelia and hard rock rolled into one.
The idea of “progressivism” that took over rock music after psychedelia’s heyday in the late 1960s belatedly spilled over to funk. In the early 1970s, as the underground/psychedelic
fire burnt out in the white rock world, it roared to a blaze in the black musical community. Nearly every American city with a large black population boasted self-contained funk bands
that didn’t consider themselves simply revues or backup groups, but rather fully-operational ensembles In these bands, everything from composing, arranging, record production
and distribution, was handled in house by band members. These are the bands whose music comprises this anthology, and while they’re all different, they’re unique in one way: they
kept their ears open for new developments in funk and rock music.
This anthology presents earnest questions as to why we know so little about these bands and the movement of which they were a part. While we don’t anticipate that we’ll ever find
a definitive answer as to what these ensembles’ true goals were, then, we do know that they took their charges seriously. And they knew they were onto something different,
something that, though only they and their immediate kin might recognize it, was more interesting than the status quo. Function Underground shines light on an important and
overlooked part of rock n’ roll’s history and talented ensembles that toiled in the shadows, derided by their peers
‘Do you realize that Hendrix was dead before most black people in America knew he was a black man?” Ebony Rhythm Band drummer Matthew Watson questions rhetorically. “We
was scorned. In that era, everybody else in the black community was wearing three-piece suits, processes and Afro wigs and that shit. We was the first guys to wear bell bottoms.
The first guys to wear big hats. We were off into a whole other thing.”

Shango Dance Band – Shango Dance Band
Tuesday, March 21st, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Shango Dance Band – Shango Dance Band A LEGENDARY, ULTRA-RARE PRIVATE AFROBEAT KILLER, RESTORED AND PRESENTED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN WIDE RELEASE! Now without 7″ and at lower price!
TRACKLIST:
A1. Position Pass Power
B1. Women Are Great
B2. I Need Your Love
In the early years of Fela Kuti’s career, well before he would define the genre of afrobeat, and leave an indelible mark on the musical landscape, he was a struggling trumpet player, seeking to redefine the sound of his current group, the art-jazz ensemble Fela Ransome-Kuti Quintet. As he moved his group towards the thenpopular genre of highlife in 1963, he lost his bassist in the move towards commercial success, but gained the company of Ojo Okeji, who had a sterling reputation both as a bassist and percussionist in groups like Lagos Cool Cats, Rex Williams’ Nigerian Artistes, and Western Toppers Highlife Band, a favorite of Kuti’s. Okeji impressed Kuti with his deft jazziness on the bass, so he was in on the spot, and the Fela Ransome-Kuti Quintet became Koola Lobitos It was Okeji that introduced Kuti to the famed percussionist Tony Allen, (Who would subsequently join Kuti into his greatest years as an artist) as well as conguero Abayomi “Easy” Adio. During his time in Koola Lobitos, Okeji not only contributed deeply melodic, and adeptly rhythmic baselines, but brought his own influence from emerging US soul artists like James Brown & The Famous Flames and Wilson Pickett, heavily pushing Koola Lobitos towards a more soulful direction. This push was often resisted by Kuti, who frequently clashed with Okeji, who formed the group VC 7 as a side-project for that purpose. 1968 proved to be a turning point for the group, as the Nigerian Civil War broke out, and many starving musicians turned to the military for work. Okeji and Adio would leave for the army, while Kuti and Allen kept Koola Lobitos going, where it evolved through different names and iterations and grew into the worldwide afrobeat force that made Kuti an icon during the 70s and 80s. But as Kuti and Allen rose to global recognition, Okeji and Adio would form a new band within the ranks of the 6th Infantry Brigade of the Nigerian Army. Their emblazoned blue jackets earned them the nickname “The Blues”, but Okeji preferred the name Shango,after the Yoruba thunder god.
Shango took the fundamentals of Kuti’s famous afrobeat and brought new layers of guitar and horn arrangements, while often invoking supernatural aesthetics, and maintaining a love for the US soul artists that influenced Okeji so much. Because Shango was an army band however, their records were not readily available to anyone outside of the military so their music, including their eponymous 1974 LP, remained relatively unknown even amongst the people of Nigeria.So many decades later however, Comb & Razor presents it for the first time to a mass audience on vinyl.
It’s 1968 and Fela is in tears.
Fela Kuti, the genius of afrobeat. The champion of the people. Fabled for unflinchingly staring down the barrels of
state tyranny, enduring beatings within an inch of his life from government stormtroopers and then getting on stage
to mock his tormenters in song. Fela the fearless, Fela the invincible. Fela who they call Anikulapo—“he who carries
death in his pocket.” What insurmountable catastrophe could have reduced this formidable titan of African music
to tears?
Ojo Okeji leaving his band, that’s what.

David Douglas – Spectators Of The Universe
Friday, February 10th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on David Douglas – Spectators Of The Universe Spectators of the Universe is the brand new single from Dutch producer/artist/video director David Douglas
Following the release of his critically acclaimed debut ‘Moon Observations,’ “Spectators of the Universe” is a journey through
sun-kissed disco and gentle electronic pop, subtly playing with psychedelic and experimental elements and weaving organic
textures alongside more robotic landscapes.
2014’s “Moon Observations” was inspired by a different star-gazer with the same name. That David Douglas was a 18th century
explorer and naturalist, whose writings on astronomical observation has inspired the more modern Douglas’ latest music. Those
eleven tracks of beautifully fleshed-out electronica were certainly a worthy tribute, and “Spectators of the Universe” continues the
story in blissful fashion.
David Douglas is without doubt one of the most expressive and all-emcompassing creators around. Having previously working as
an esteemed video director, he switched his focus to music, and both his 2012 “Royal Horticultural Society” EP and his debut
album “Moon Observations” were warmly received, garnering praise from the likes of Pitchfork, i-D Mag, Electronic Beats, THUMP
and XLR8R. David’s live sets are known for the substantial amount of gear he has in tow, including a Space Echo that is essential for
his signature sound. His shows at PITCH Festival, Best Kept Secret and Into The Woods inspired the penning of his second full
album, set to drop early next year via Atomnation

Jupiter Okwess – Troposphere 13
Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Jupiter Okwess – Troposphere 13 Discovered in 2006 thanks to Jupiter’s Dance, a documentary about the new music scene in Kinshasa, and still one of its iconic even heroic members, Jupiter Bonkodji makes a welcome return with Troposphere 13, three years after the release of the exuberant Hotel Univers. On this incredible 6-track EP, the Congolese Don Quixote defies everything, gloom, doom, but also… the laws of gravity.
Taking it’s namesake from the almost unbelievable story of The Democratic Republic of Congo’s short-lived space program, this EP is a raucous trip through the immense wealth of traditional Congolese rhythms and the electrifying stridency of the rock inherited from his European past spent growing up in Germany, and featuring a few friends including Damon Albarn and long time faithful companion of Nick Cave, Warren Ellis.
Troposphère 13 breaks the sound barrier that, until now, has kept Katanga guitars and rock energy apart, lifting the incredible Jupiter into orbit once again, a UFO of contemporary African music inhabited simultaneously by the fighting instinct of Fela Kuti and the moralistic fibre of Jean de La Fontaine

Tall Black Guy – Let’s Take A Trip (Coloured Vinyl)
Wednesday, October 19th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Tall Black Guy – Let’s Take A Trip (Coloured Vinyl) ‘This is a journey into sound…,’ These familiar words, accompanied by the rumble of a distant train, signal the opening of ‘Let’s Take A Trip’, the sophomore album from Terrel Wallace aka Tall Black Guy. Since 2013’s ‘8 Miles To Moenart’ TBG has cemented his position as a standard bearer for the current hip-hop / beats scene. Born in Detroit and now residing in the UK, Wallace’s signature style of incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops has won fans across the globe including Gilles Peterson, Lefto, Jazzy Jeff and House Shoes.
Since his debut release in 2011 (a daring and addictive flip of Fela Kuti), TBG has become revered for his unique take on soulful hip-hop production. The swing of the drums, the textures of the instrumentation as well as a fearlessness in taking on the classics (his Soundcloud page includes flips and chops of tracks from James Brown, De La Soul and Michael Jackson) have marked him out from the crowd. One of the best-kept secrets in the scene, his singular talent is now beginning to get the recognition it deserves. In the last 12 months he has remixed Little Dragon and been invited to take part in Jazzy Jeff’s Playlist Retreat alongside the likes of Eric Lau, James Poyser, Ali Shaheed Muhammed, Questlove and countless others.
For this album Wallace had a simple inspiration: ‘This album is all about taking a journey. As simple as that. Be it physical, emotional or spiritual. It’s asking and answering personal questions from myself within some of the tracks and also touching on social issues i.e. racism, inequality and privilege…that have been at the forefront of my mind over last three years.’ Sonically there is also a shift: ‘Jazz has definitely been more of an influence in this project, as I have been really inspired by so many up and coming musicians who I’ve been blessed to connect with’. Some of these musicians, including Kenny Keys, Miles Bonny, Diggs Duke and Dee Jackson feature on the project as well as regular collaborators Ozay Moore and Mario Sweet and fellow Playlist alumni Daniel Crawford and Masego. But this is one man’s vision, and for Tall Black Guy this trip is just the beginning…,.

Los Amigos Invisibles – Cuba Classics 1 (Los Grandes Exitos)

19. The New Sound of The Venezuelan Gozadera
Los Amigos Invisibles (The Invisible Friends) have created the ultimate party album. Surprising segues — one after another — join non-stop grooves. Like having an incredible DJ at your house working for the mere price of a CD (or Cassette)… it flows and swings and never stops… one song/groove leads right into the next, no waiting. It feels like being smacked upside the head in a delicious way.
The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera is a journey deep into the pants of rhythm. (We won’t even mention the old sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera). Party music hasn’t sounded this chic since Chic. “The Gozadera, more than a musical style, is a concept allowing us to use whatever music we enjoy and mix it up,” says guitarist Jose Luis Pardo. “Like boogaloo, salsa, bossa nova, funk, disco, house, techno, jungle, merengue, New Wave, cha-cha-cha, mambo, and of course Acid Jazz.” And who better to pull this off than producer Andres Levin (Aterciopelados, Chaka Khan, La Portuaria, La Secta, El Gran Silencio, David Byrne, Arto Lindsay, and many more) along with engineer Fernando Aponte (Masters at Work, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Deee-Lite, Towa Tei)?
This, their second album, finds the young Venezuelans stepping out from under the shadow of the Rock en Español moniker and giving it a much needed face-lift. “We are a rock band that does not just play just rock music,” says singer Jose Briceño. The 19 tracks on the album combine keyboard driven dance-rock with elements of Latin music worked in. Whether it’s the funked out bliss of “Sexy,” the mambo lounge of “Mango Cool,” or the trip-hop ecstasy of “Otra Vez” (on which Arto Lindsay contributes a bit of distorted 12-string electric guitar), Los Amigos Invisibles have created the perfect party album. Their lyrics tell stories inspired by real-life experiences of love (sex), relationships (sex), and more often then not, the taboos that accompany each (sleazy sex).
Formed in 1991 as part of Caracas’ mobile party scene, the six members of Los Amigos Invisibles quickly developed their unique sound by blending all styles of Latin music with modern beats. Their influences are vast, incorporating the space-age sounds of Esquivel, the whacked-out funk of Parliament, and the beat-friendly Brand New Heavies and Jamiroquai. “We began making music influenced by the development of the acid-jazz scene and the dance music coming out of London,” says Jose Luis, “but when it came down to playing it, we realized that our culture and environment kept creeping into our music. The tunes that are played over the radio at the corner shop or that we whistle along with from the bodega are songs that interest us… that music is part of our people and that makes it part of us. All we want to do is have fun and make fun of it all at the same time.” Their first album, A Typical & Autoctonal Venezuelan Dance Band, was released in 1996 and received Best Band, Record of the Year and Best Guitarist awards in the Venezuelan Rock Awards.

Shango Dance Band – Shango Dance Band
Tuesday, July 12th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Shango Dance Band – Shango Dance Band A Legendary, Ultra-Rare Afrobeat Killer, Restored And Presented For The First Time In Wide Release! / Lp Includes Bonus 7” Disc Featuring The Rare 1972 Single “Son Of Thunder” B/w “Alupandu-Gbe” / Limited To 1000 Copies /
It’s 1968 and Fela is in tears. Fela Kuti, the genius of afrobeat. The champion of the people. Fabled for unflinchingly staring down the barrels of state tyranny, enduring beatings within an inch of his life from government stormtroopers and then getting on stage to mock his tormenters in song. Fela the fearless, Fela the invincible. Fela who they call Anikulapo—“he who carries death in his pocket.” What insurmountable catastrophe could have reduced this formidable titan of African music to tears? Ojo Okeji leaving his band, that’s what.
– From the liner notes, by renowned Nigerian music historian Uchenna Ikonne
In the early years of Fela Kuti’s career, well before he would define the genre of afrobeat, and leave an indelible mark on the musical landscape, he was a struggling trumpet player, seeking to redefine the sound of his current group, the art-jazz ensemble Fela Ransome-Kuti Quintet. As he moved his group towards the then-popular genre of highlife in 1963, he lost his bassist in the move towards commercial success, but gained the company of Ojo Okeji, who had a sterling reputation both as a bassist and percussionist in groups like Lagos Cool Cats, Rex Williams’ Nigerian Artistes, and Western Toppers Highlife Band, a favorite of Kuti’s. Okeji impressed Kuti with his deft jazziness on the bass, so he was in on the spot, and the Fela Ransome-Kuti Quintet became Koola Lobitos.
It was Okeji that introduced Kuti to the famed percussionist Tony Allen, (Who would subsequently join Kuti into his greatest years as an artist) as well as conguero Abayomi “Easy” Adio. During his time in Koola Lobitos, Okeji not only contributed deeply melodic, and adeptly rhythmic baselines, but brought his own influence from emerging US soul artists like James Brown & The Famous Flames and Wilson Pickett, heavily pushing Koola Lobitos towards a more soulful direction. This push was often resisted by Kuti, who frequently clashed with Okeji.
1968 proved to be a turning point for the group, as the Nigerian Civil War broke out, and many starving musicians turned to the military for work. Okeji and Adio would leave for the army, while Kuti and Allen kept Koola Lobitos going, where it evolved through different names and iterations and grew into the worldwide afrobeat force that made Kuti an icon during the 70s and 80s. But as Kuti and Allen rose to global recognition, Okeji and Adio would form a new band within the ranks of the 6th Infantry Brigade of the Nigerian Army. Their emblazoned blue jackets earned them the nickname “The Blues”, but Okeji preferred the name “Shango” after the Yoruba thunder god. Shango took the fundamentals of Kuti’s famous afrobeat and brought new layers of guitar and horn arrangements, while often invoking supernatural aesthetics, and maintaining a love for the US soul artists that influenced Okeji so much. Because Shango was an army band however, their records were not readily available to anyone outside of the military so their music, including their eponymous 1974 LP, remained relatively unknown even amongst the people of Nigeria. Decades later Comb & Razor is thrilled to present this long-lost Nigerian gem for the first time to a world-wide audience.

Stee Downes – The Bigger Picture
Friday, July 1st, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Stee Downes – The Bigger Picture Stee Downes is back with the new album The Bigger Picture.
TRACKLISTING:
1. Big Mistake
2. Never Good Enough
3. Look And Load
4. Always On My Mind
5. Holdin
6. Life
7. All Over The World
8. Dignity
9. Don’t Give Up Hope
10. Getting On
11. Lost Sight Of Love
Eight whole years have gone by since Stee Downes ecstasized the entire world with his
debut „All In A Day“ (SK203CD). It probably must have been all the different, formidable
collaborations with the crème de la crème of the pop appealing house music scene, from
Flight Facilities („Hold Me Down“, 2014), Kraak & Smaak („How We Gonna Stop The Time“,
2014), Alex Barck („Like A Drug“, 2014), Lovebirds („Want You In My Soul“, 2011) to Kyodai
(„Music Rises Up“, 2013) or Marlow („Something Is Coming“, 2016), which kept the bustling
Dublin based singer and musician again and again from raising the ante by releasing his
long-awaited sophomore album.
“The Bigger Picture” though, is an album worth waiting for in every respect. The eleven songs
are altogether a bit more mature than everything Downes has ever recorded to this day.
Every track embeds a load of funk – spread over the 60 minutes never showing a disposition
to get jittery but twists the listener round one’s little finger smoothly and in a laid-back
fashion hard to compare. “Lock And Load” and “Never Good Enough” are two textbook
examples of throttled funkyness paired with boundless sex appeal. The preliminary single
and opener “Big Mistake” is one of these songs literally inviting you to sing along. „You gonna
get your life in check“ is just one of the album’s many punch lines which will creep into your
mind like an earworm. That’s why it’s hardly surprising that it took Downes so long to
compose these eleven gems and finally, after several misrouted attempts, finding the
matching co-producer in Pascal Blanche (of Chasing Kurt) and the perfect sound for his
condign successor on Sonar Kollektiv. After all one of the tracks is called “Dignity”, a song
with which Stee Downes explains what this is all about: To believe in yourself, to pull your
own thing through no matter the effort it takes and trouble it may cause, and first and
foremost to preserve your own freedom in whatever you try to achieve. “The Bigger Picture”
radiates in all its facets, in its lyrics, in its production and in its casual groove an eternal
optimism. You can prescribe this album extraordinaire easily for repeatedly daily
consumption. One thing is for sure by all means: With “The Bigger Picture” Stee Downes has
arrived all the way at the top, at the zenith of his glory. Available from 12.08.2016

Max Shrager – Thoughts Of You
Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Max Shrager – Thoughts Of You Big Crown records is proud to present Max Shrager’s debut EP “Thoughts Of You”. This is a collection of songs Max recorded over the past 7-8 years, at the ripe young of 20, it’s clear
Max was born for this. Now dedicated to his band The Shacks, he spends most of his time focusing on writing and recording for their upcoming full length due out on Big Crown in 2017.
These songs are what he calls “the best of everything he has recorded up to that point”. 6 songs on a beautiful 10 picture sleeve EP, another Big Crown sureshot.
SIDE A:
Sophia
Thoughts Of You
Silver
SIDE B:
Girls Of The Galaxy
Train Song
You’re Still There
From Max:
Each song on this record represents a period of my life. Listening to them brings me back to the experiences that inspired them, like a smell that causes a flood of memories.
“Sophia”
I wrote “Sophia” in a piano rehearsal room at my high school. It started with those first two chords, and I just kept going because the harmonic movement was making sense. I came up with the chorus a few minutes before we cut the rhythm track. Tom Brenneck got excited about this one early on, which was very encouraging.
“Thoughts of You”
This one was written the summer I moved to New York City. I thought of it as a country ballad as I was writing it. It ended up having some interesting rhythms and flavors. My grandmother came downstairs to my parent’s basement as I was recording the guitar, and she was in to it.
“Silver”
I bought a 12 string Martin guitar at First Flight music and brought it to school. I ended up skipping class and sitting in the park, working on a song idea that came to me the night before. My new girlfriend had given me a silver ring, which I put in my pocket. It got all scratched up, among the coins, which made me feel guilty and provided the inspiration for this song.
“Girls of the Galaxy”
This one was really fun to record. It’s very much about the production for me, which I did with Homer Steinweiss. Listen closely for the Spanish radio crosstalk at the end.
“Train Song”
This tune is about the train ride from New Jersey to New York City that I must’ve taken a thousand times. There’s also some stuff about a trip to Las Vegas, where my dad and I walked miles out of the city on a dusty highway and ended up at a nuclear testing museum.
“You’re Still There”
This is a love song that was inspired by a specific feeling I had one night in Atlantic City. The feeling was so deep and unique that this song just poured out of me at the piano. The drums were recorded by putting the microphone under a ceramic pot. Available from 22.07.2016

Various – Reggae Gold 2016 (2CD Edition)
Friday, June 10th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Reggae Gold 2016 (2CD Edition) Die entscheidende Zusammenstellung im Reggae/Dancehall-Genre, mit den Top Tunes des Jahres, beginnt mit “My Dream” von Nesbeth, die Kopf-Hoch-Hymne zwischen Roots und Hip Hop, die, inspiriert durch Martin Luther King, dem bedeutendsten Vertreter des Kampfes gegen soziale Unterdrückung und Rassismus, euphorische Reaktionen auf jamaikanischen Streetdances hervorruft. Als Dancehall-Highligts bekommt man Alkalines selbstbewusstes “Champion Boy” und “Real Rich” von Newcomer Tanto Blacks auf die Ohren. In Richtung Pop schielt Omis inzwischen hinlänglich bekanntes “Cheerleader” im Felix Jaehn Remix, Jamie XX mit seinen Gastvokalisten Young Thug & Popcaan, Busy Signal mit “Watch Me Now”, und der VP Shooting Star Christopher Martin präsentiert den Ohrwurm “Under The Influence”. An der Reggae-Front erfreut Romain Virgo mit seinem Cover des Dennis Brown-Klassikers “Caress Me” sowie Kelissa, die in “Best Kept Secret” Ska- und Lover’s Rock-Thematik verbindet. Mit der Kombination von Soca-Star Bunji Garlin und dem erfolgreichsten der Marley-Söhne, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, im Duett bei “The Message” bietet sich hier mehr als ein gelungener Rückblick auf die letzten Monate, gleichzeitig wird mit Songs wie Raging Fyahs brandneuem “Dash Wata” auch in die Zukunft geblickt. “Reggae Gold 2016” ist erhältlich als Doppel-CD im Brilliant-Box Packaging mit ausfaltbarem Poster. Die zweite Disc präsentiert den DJ-Mix der Chromatic Crew (featuring Creep Chromatic), die es wie keine andere Soundcrew derzeit versteht den Zeitgeist der jungen Leute Jamaikas, was Musik und Mode angeht, in die Welt hinaus zu tragen.

Ganimian & His Oriental Music – Come With Me To The Casbah
Thursday, June 9th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Ganimian & His Oriental Music – Come With Me To The Casbah Oft overlooked for over half a century while misfiled amongst exploit bellydance records and holidaymaker souvenirs this one-off twelve track album is the only existing full-length record by the best-kept mutant musical secret of the Armenian American diaspora, oud pop maestro Charles ‘Chick’ Ganimian.One of the earliest examples of any kind of recorded fusion between rhythm heavy pop music and traditional Turkish music, Ganimian’s developments in New York City – with his sadly unrecorded turk jerk combo The Nor-Ikes (New Dawn) combo – ran almost simultaneously alongside the rising Anadolou Pop scene in Turkey, resulting in his short lived powerhouse of Kif proto-rock under the changing names of Ganim’s Asia Minors, Ganimian & His Orientals and Ganimian & His Oriental Music Orchestra. Combining a line-up of mostly unknown musicians from his local community (where he was worked as a butcher), Ganimian, in a short unison with ATCO records, was fortunate enough to accommodate jazz guitarist Al Schactman as part of his studio personnel (launching the career of this Nina Simone regular) as well as French born Armenian folk singer Onnik Dinkjian and reid player Steve Bogoshian (both from the band The House Of The Seven Uncles) as well as the esteemed Turkish raised Kanun player Ahmet Yatman. As one of the very few early American recorded authentic Middle Eastern fusion record Come With Me To The Casbah has piqued a refined interest in a new generation of progressive world music collector resulting in a distinct drought in original Ganimian pressings on the collectors’ market earning Chicks name a rising placeholder on the want lists of DJs, vinyl hounds and ethno psychedelia collectors.This LP includes all of Ganimians recordings including the rare singles for Atco and East West which sit awkwardly next to bizarre and unique takes on popular American standards enhancing the exciting freak factor of this record which simply could not be made by today’s stifling self-aware anti-standards. Aside from rare (poorly recorded) private family tapes this album is the only chance to hear the music of this lost enigma of early world music, Eastern fusion and a missing kink in the fabric of New York pop music history captured before his short stint as an exotic Herbie Mann sideman which proceeded his migration into obscurity and his well-imparted tragic struggle with alcohol dependency depriving pop culture of a forward thinking pioneer who paved the way for the more credible exponents of the cross-continental Indo fusion enigma such as John Berberian and the later well pruned hard rock efforts of The Devils Anvil.
Tracklist:
1. Oriental Jam
2. Over The Rainbow
3. The Whirling Dervish
4. Play Girl Play
5. Swingin’ The Blues
6. Daddy Lolo
7. My Funny Valentine

Boco – Runnin’ The Mardi Gras / Smile
Monday, June 6th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Boco – Runnin’ The Mardi Gras / Smile Big Crown Records is proud to present the reissue of this uber rare underground cult classic Running The Mardi Gras
by Boco. Those lucky enough to find an original copy are paying upwards of $1000.00 for this truly unique
psych rock / funk gem on 45.
From the title to the sound to the cryptic lyrics “Running the Mardi Gras” seems to confirm all the mystique that
surrounds the southern Louisiana Bayous and Cajun culture. This record is a family affair. It started one morning
when one Mr. Latour, the father of the group, was shaving in the mirror and a song struck him. It was to be about
Mardi Gras, not the beaded revelry of New Orleans familiar to most, but the traditions of rural Louisiana, where one
would “run the Mardi Gras,” going house to house getting home cooking from the neighbors. He would sing the song
every day in the car and the children of the family soaked up the spirit of the song.
Playing and performing was just part of life for the family. Mr. Latour had bought studio equipment for his children to
record on, which he kept in their house. Growing up in the shadow of New Orleans, the Latour children listened to
the sounds of Funk and R&B that came in on the radio, which was the biggest influence on the family projects’ sound.
Together the four Latour children, with the eponymous Boco Latour on lead vocals, and a couple of local musicians
recorded “Running the Mardi Gras” in the Latour home. Feeling that they really had something, the makeshift band
decided to record a b-side. The guitarist had a song he had been working on and they recorded what would become
“Smile” as well. The two songs were pressed under the Laughing Eye label, nothing more than the heading under
which the Latour family released their music, and mostly sold the 45 at gigs around southern Louisiana. The recorded
output under Laughing Eye was understandably limited, but locals still remember well Boco’s powerful voice from her
shows in clubs around the bayous. Boco and George Latour still live around Baton Rouge and continue to make
music and play in the area.

Martha High – Singing For The Good Times
Friday, May 20th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Martha High – Singing For The Good Times James Brown. Who doesn’t know about the godfather of soul? Who doesn’t know about the milestone anthem “Cold Sweat”? Maybe there is nobody, but we are sure that many of you don’t know that hidden on that particular song, and in all of James Brown’s productions, is one of the best kept secrets in soul music: Mrs. Martha High.
She is the one who sings that crazy soprano note at the very beginning of the song and she is the one who sang behind James Brown for about 35 years. She was with Brown and the Jb’s in Boston on the infamous night after the Martin Luther King assassination, she flew with him in the dangerous Vietnam skies to entertain the US soldiers, and was also in Zaire celebrating the “Rumble in the Jungle” between Ali and Foreman. Martha was truly a friend, confidant and supporter of the godfather of soul. Maybe she was just too young and shy to jump over the other soul divas to ask for a solo record. Today is different.
Mrs. Martha High is the hardest working woman in show business. She is still touring worldwide as a lead singer of Maceo Parker’s band but now she is on fire because finally, she has recorded the album she never made but always wanted to make. 11 killer original tunes produced and arranged by Luca Sapio, the Italian soul ambassador, in true analog super sound. The tunes evoke the best productions of the golden era of Southern soul as well as the sonic landscapes of the Italian soundtracks of the 60’s. Here is the middle ground where these two unheralded musical traditions meet and Martha is the undisputed Queen. Don’t miss the chance to take a listen.
This record is made of truth, soul, love, and pain – a full spectrum of emotions that only a Queen can deliver to your ears. She spent much time in the studio with Luca and his guys to make it happen. This is not a revival, this is not retro, this is NOW. She took it as a challenge and we are sure that she won.

Jean-Bernard Raiteux – Les Demons
Thursday, May 12th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Jean-Bernard Raiteux – Les Demons The unreleased Euro pysch score to the French/Portuguese X-rated version of The Devils meets The Witchfinder General! Synchronised by Spanish anti-establishmentarian, sexual liberator, die-hard independent filmmaker and unrepentant voyeur Jess Franco (Vampyros Lesbos/De Sade). Composed entirely by French composer Jean-Bernard Raiteux aka Jean-Michel Lorgere (Sinner/Harlem Pop Trotters) and presented here in full soundtrack form for the first time.
Proudly claiming the dubious accolade of the Spanish sexploitation version of The Devils as the distributor’s most bankable asset, this previously banned 1973 European witch flick would rip the art house facade from Ken Russell’s well polished box office smash and push the envelope way beyond the closet titillation of the gentrified new wave controversy seekers. Delivered on a comparable shoestring budget as the 55th feature in Jess Franco’s filmography of approximately 203 completed movies, The Demons (Les Démons), directed under the Anglicised pseudonym Clifford Brown, took many of the Franco’s sexually stylistic watermarks (epitomised in his Vampyros Lesbos trilogy) adding witchcraft, possession and nunsploitation against a rural Mediterranean backdrop before disappearing into the woods. Whilst clearly taking inspirational plot cues from Michael Reeve’s The Witchfinder General (UK 1968) and drawing comparisons with scenes from Eiichi Yamamoto’s Belladonna Of Sadness (Japan 1973) this B-Movie reduction of Franco’s wide palette of colourful ingredients has in recent years provided enthusiasts/champions/defenders of the workaholic horrotica bastion with a rare and treasured addition. Future-proofed by an essential component, omnipresent in Franco’s films, it is the mysterious commercially unobtainable soundtrack music that cements the unwaning interest in his risqué brand of unconventional shock/schlock sinema (not hindered my the enigmatic title card misinformation that often surrounds the original composers) and the music herein that has given Franco’s harshest critics a second chance/reason to reevaluate this man’s unapologetic art.
Following on from Finders Keepers previous expanded release of Bruno Nicolai’s score for Franco’s 1970 adaptation of De Sade (FKR069) this record stands as another tribute to Franco’s life which he lived through the mechanisms of a camera with relentless zeal and a passion to challenge every aspect of movie making along the way. UNDERground, OVERambitious, RIGHT on, LEFTfield, BELOW the radar but ABOVE criticism. INdulgent and OUTrageous, but never middle of the road, Jess Franco was many things but he wasn’t pretentious and never delivered art for art’s sake and I feel honoured to have spent time with him. Franco was in fact a realist, he kept both feet firmly on the ground and a keen eye behind the right side of the lens and if Jess did have any demons his films were his exorcisms, the critics were the bloody judges and his legacy (through the medium of X-rated cinema of variable quality) is immortal.

Matthew Halsall – On The Go (Special Edition)
Thursday, May 5th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Matthew Halsall – On The Go (Special Edition) Wiederveröffentlichung von Matthew Halsalls Debutalbum “On The Go”, das für die diese ‘Special Edition’ um drei Titel erweitert wurde und zudem zum ersten Mal auch auf Vinyl erscheinen wird. Der aus Manchester stammende Trompeter, Komponist, Arrangeur und Bandleader Matthew Halsall ist einer der aufstrebenden Stars der britischen Jazz-Szene. Sein einzigartiger Sound wurde vom Independent brillant als “Regen-gestreifter Spiritual Jazz aus Manchester” beschrieben. Er bewegt sich auf “On The Go” spielerisch zwischen Modal und Spiritual Jazz, Stringgeladenen Minimalismus und Hard-Bop.
“I have always loved this album, and when fans kept asking me for a vinyl version I decided to make a special edition release, so I remixed and remastered the whole album with George Atkins at 80 Hertz Studios and in the process decided to include three bonus tracks that were recorded around the same time and took inspiration from one of my favourite jazz records, Miles Davis’s Lift To The Scaffold ” – Matthew Halsall Available from 10.06.2016
