    VINYL FACTORY COMPILATION OF THE YEAR 2020!!!

    See chart here

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    LIMITED EDITION COMES WITH FREE GRAPHIC STORY!

    Soul Jazz Records’ new Black Riot: Early Jungle, Rave and Hardcore is a brand new collection of heavyweight ragga-influenced hardcore jungle tracks from the early 1990s. Dark and heavy!

    Featuring classic and seminal tracks from the likes of Levictus and Krome &Time, alongside a host of rare and little-known ragga & junglist hardcore tunes from the likes of Babylon Timewarp’s hypnotic Durban Poison, Rhythm for Reasons’ mad ‘The Smokers Rhythm’, The Freaky rave-y breakbeat sound of ‘Time and Age,’ Trip One’s super dark ‘Snowball’ and loads more!

    Expect super heavy basslines, equally heavy twisted Amen drum loops, even heavier ragga vocals! Original jungle style - roots and culture - from the earliest days of drum and bass.

    Included with the album is a free limited-edition graphic mini-novel “Black Riot: The Mysterons save Planet Earth from the Xatheroid Angels.” This is the third collaboration between Soul Jazz Records and writer/illustrator Paulo Parisi, the highly respected author of graphic books on Jean Michel Basquiat and John Coltrane.

    This new graphic story continues the story of black electronic dance music – this time set around the birth of Jungle and continues onwards from Soul Jazz’s earlier ‘Invasion of the Killer Mysterons’ (Jamaican electronic Dub, co-compiled by Kevin Martin (The Bug)) and Mysterons Invade the Jackin’ Zone (about Chicago Acid & Experimental House).

    Add N To X - On The Wires Of Our Nerves (Special Limited Edition RSD 2021 silver vinyl)Soul Jazz Records

    Super special 20th anniversary SILVER vinyl!

    Incredibly inspired electronic retro-futurists who were so ahead of their time that they eventually imploded. This is a classic album!

    In the space of five short years (and as many albums) at the end of the 20th century Add N To X caused havoc with their unique retro-futurist electronic music. Add N To X’s musical intensity proved too much for the group who split up in 2002. Their album On The Wires of Our Nerves, complete with its classic cover image, recorded on Soul Jazz Records’ then new offshoot label Satellite Records, launched them into the spotlight and included two NME Singles of the Week ‘Black Regent’ and ‘King Wasp’. Over twenty years since it was first released and long out of print the album 'On The Wires of Our Nerves’ stands up one of the most forward-looking electronic albums of then and now.

    This classic album is released in a very limited one-off pressing transparent vinyl edition as an Record Store Day exclusive title

    SandozLive In The EarthSoul Jazz Records

    New album of electonic and digital dub and reggae from legendary post-punk pioneer Richard H. Kirk. Richard H. Kirk founded the group Cabaret Voltaire in Sheffield in 1973 alongside Stephen Mallinder and Chris Watson. One of the earliest signings to Rough Trade records, the group created a unique industrial sound that perfectly fitted into the post-punk ethos of the late 1970s. The name of the group was taken from a meeting of Dadaist artists in Zurich, Switzerland in 1910. Cabaret Voltaire were at the centre of the burgeoning Sheffield music scene that also gave rise to The Human League, Clock DVA, Heaven 17, Pulp and now the Arctic Monkeys. In the 1980s, Cabaret Voltaire left their punk roots and moved into a post-industrial dance territory - even recording an album with Marshall Jefferson in Chicago - citing him as a similarly inclined maverick artist of the house community. As early as 1978, Richard H. Kirk had started his solo career with the album"Disposable Half Truths", releasing material under his own name as well as under a stream of pseudonyms such as Electronic Eye, Sweet Exorcist, Trafficante, Blacworld, Nitrogen and more. His work has contined to appear on Rough Trade, Mute, Warp and numerous small independent labels. Since 1992, Kirk has been using the name Sandoz and in 2002 released "Sandoz in Dub: Chant to Jah" on Soul Jazz Records, an album of electronics mixed with reggae and dub. "Live in This Earth" is the second chapter in Richard Kirk’s journey into the heart of Dub. Taking his influences from dub producers King Tubby, Lee Perry, Scientist and more, Kirk has mixed these sounds together with his trademark electronic experimentation to produce a remarkable album.

    TetineI Go To The DoctorSoul Jazz Records

    Killer Punk-Funk/New Wave 12” featuring the Sao Paulo based group Tetine along with a wicked remix from CSS. Tetine are Bruno Verner and Eliete Mejorado. This is their second release on Soul Jazz Records and is a taster for their forthcoming album Let Your X’s Be Y’s, a wild mix-up of Punk-Funk/New Wave/Post- Punk/Baile-Bass. Integral to the same vibrant Sao Paulo music scene in Brazil that has now produced both CSS and Bonde de Role, Tetine’s music is similarly a mixture of raw punky energy and attitude mixed with bass-heavy dance music. Tetine are in-fact the forerunners of this scene having now released 8 albums in Brazil since they formed in Sao Paulo in 1995. "Tetine was my first inspiration in terms of intellect, presence and their amazing performances. It was right there in front of me but it made such a strong impression I never forgot that was what real music is about: freedom and purity and, of course, in many different ways, FUN! I've never seen something like that coming from Brazil, or actually, anywhere!" Lovefoxx - CSS Constantly exploring the boundaries between music, art, video, performance their infamous live events range from rock gigs to gallery installations. "Tetine are Feminists, un-followers and inventors of their own scene; an uncut diamond. If Art is really dead, then Tetine belong to a "nameless" genre – the makers of something wild, something alive." Chicks On Speed Aside from their own music, Tetine have also been instrumental in bringing the Brazilian underground scene to the general public, having compiled both Funk Carioca (the first ever album of Baile Funk outside of Brazil) and Sexual Life of the Savages (an essential primer to early-80s Post-Punk from Sao Paulo, released on Soul Jazz Records).
