What we get is a nine-track selection of previously unreleased cuts from a wide variety of label artists, including Amp Fiddler, Kyle Hall, Alton Miller, Hanna and, of course, Parrish himself. Magic!!

      Sound Signature Presents...These Songs That Should've Been Out On Wax By Now - Part TwoSound Signature

      The Sound Signature label continues its' round-up of tracks they've not quite managed to get out on wax to date, supposedly due to endless delays at pressing plants. This second volume in the series is, if anything, even stronger than its' predecessor. Certainly the line-up of artists is ridiculously strong, with Tony Allen, Andrew Ashong, Kai Alice, Marcellus Pittman and, of course, boss man Theo Parrish, all contributing.

      HannaBlessSound Signature

      First full release from Hanna since 2008. This 10 track album brings a wicked selection of jazzy deep house, nu-jazz and downtempo experiments. There's plenty of dancefloor friendly cuts for the DJ's whilst the down tempo tracks keep it suitable for home listening. Excellent stuff as usual From Hanna and Sound Signature!!!

          BoomboxSoul Jazz Records

          Soul Jazz Records’ new Boombox features some of the many innovative underground first-wave of rap records made in New York in the period 1979-82, all released on small, independent, often family-concern record companies, at a time when hip-hop music still remained under the radar.


          This first exuberant wave of innocent, upbeat, party on the block rap records were the first to try and create the sounds heard in community centres, block parties and street jams that first took place in the Bronx in the mid-1970s. But where Flash, Kool Herc and Bambaataa were back-spinning, mixing and scratching together now classic breakbeat records like The Incredible Bongo Band’s Apache or Babe Ruth’s The Mexican, these first rap records were all made using live bands, often replaying then current disco tunes, whilst MCs rapped over the top, creating a unique sound that later became known derisively as old school.


          And while hip-hop started in the Bronx, rap on vinyl began in Harlem where long-time established rhythm and blues producer-owned record companies such as Joe Robinson’s Enjoy Records, Paul Winley’s Winley Records, Delmar Donnel’s Delmar International and Jack Fatman Taylor’s Rojac and Tayster were the first off the mark to realise the commercial potential of rap music - releasing early ground-breaking records that all quickly followed in the wake of the first rap record, The Sugarhill Gang’s Rappers Delight, a million-selling worldwide hit.


          This collection celebrates these first old-school rap records, bringing together rare, classic and obscure tracks released in the early days of rap.


          Deluxe double CD-pack comes with slipcase, 40-page outsize perfect-bound booklet, extensive notes, exclusive photography and original label artwork. Triple-vinyl heavyweight vinyl includes full artwork, text and notes as well as free download code.


          REVIEWS:

          Soul Jazz has a reputation for top-notch compilations that offer crash courses in a variety of styles and genres both beloved and obscure; they are, in essence, the K-Tel of the millennial generation.

          This is one of the best Soul Jazz sets in ages, a legitimate party in a box, overflowing with underground deep cuts that have seldom — if ever — been spotted on other collections - FACT
