Jackie Mittoo - Ayatollah (12")
Jackie Mittoo - Ayatollah (12")Basic Replay
¥1,738
Ayatollah is an apocalyptic record, full of dread - dubwise and deep from the first chords of Jackie Mittoo's interstellar keys, over classic Wackies-style steppers drum and bass - with a dream-like atmosphere in which pain and sufferation are swirled together with devotional mystery and redemption. Originally released on the Nefertiti label, like Rocking Universally this is from the early eighties (and the B-side here is another essential, extended version of that rhythm - dancefloor murder), when Jackie Mittoo was between New York and Toronto. Such a killer.

From the late-80s, sides like these announced a new era in reggae. Replay Version sets the mood here - malevolent, sick and paranoid, but haunting, and funky like a train, with cruelly brilliant effects; really a stunning piece of music.

Steel an' Skin, a unit composed of young nightclub musicians born in Ghana, Nigeria, St. Kitts, Trinidad and the U.K., who once performed with Ginger Johnson's Afrikan Drummers, a highlife band under the tutelage of the late Ginger Johnson and played at Johnson's Iroko Country Club in Hampstead, London. Steel an' Skin began activities giving concerts and workshops in London schools, expanding nationwide to schools, prisons, psychiatric hospitals and summer festivals, including the world-famous Notting Hill Carnival.

Creation Rebel / New Age Steppers - Threat to Creation (LP)Lantern Rec.
¥2,775
Released on Cherry Red in 1981, Threat To Creation spotted the collaboration between two mystical entities : Creation Rebel and New Age Steppers. Forerunners of the british dub scene the two bands shared several members, a who’s who of the On U-Sound school and key figures of the Bristol and London scene. Adrian Sherwood is – obviously – the man behind the desk a craftsman on its own, a character with no borders and one of the most sought after producer of the time. The supergroup is ran by post-punk stalwarts Bruce Smith (The Pop Group) on drums and Keith Levene (PIL) on guitar. Ari Up of The Slits sits on piano and organ, while masters Crucial Tony is both on bass and guitars. Members of African Head Charge – bass player George Oban, Eskimo Fox and Style Scott on drums – are welcomed addition to the line-up. Threat To Creation is still recognizable as an album ahead of its time, a futuristic blend filling the gap between the Jamaican heritage, the so-called (post) industrial revolution and the studio witchery of the whitey man.

Don Letts - Late Night Tales presents Version Excursion selected by Don Letts (2LP)Late Night Tales
¥4,244

Limited edition fluorescent green vinyl. Don Letts, the man who started the culture clash between punk and reggae, appears on the world's favorite "late night listening" compilation series!

Don Letts, a pop star, film director, radio broadcaster, commentator, Grammy Award winner, and a multifaceted cultural figure, is now available on the Late Night Tales series.

Born in Brixton, Don Letts ran the London store Acme Attractions, which was at the center of culture, and his attitude brought him to the attention of fashion and dub reggae, which vibrated the walls of the store with heavy bass. His first club as a DJ, Roxy, was open only for 100 days, but became legendary for introducing the punk generation to the appeal of reggae. The experience taught him a true DIY spirit, and he consequently made a fresh start as a film director.
In the 80's, he worked with former guitarist Mick Jones' band, Big O Dio. In the 80's, he joined The Clash's former guitarist Mick Jones' band, Big O Dio Dynamite, where his innovative use of samples played a central role in the band's sound. And he still has his own radio show, Culture Clash Radio, on 6 Music. This album has been created by Don Letts, who has had a great career, and has gone to great lengths to pursue the Jamaican tradition of cover versions. The history of Caribbean music owes much to R&B, as many of the early releases were cover versions of American 45s. Millie Small's "My Boy Lollipop," which gave ska its commercial breakthrough, was originally recorded by Barbie Gay in New York in the 1950s. Cover versions were all the rage in Jamaica, and Don follows in that tradition by digging deep into an interesting selection of dubbed-out covers, including 13 exclusives. This compilation is sure to be a hit with the selectors.

Vladislav Delay, Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare - 500-Push-Up (LP)
Vladislav Delay, Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare - 500-Push-Up (LP)Sub Rosa
¥2,398
From Mille Plateaux to Leaf, Staubgold, and Raster-Noton, ~scape, among others, or on his own label Ripatti, the Finnish artist Sasu Ripatti, aka Vladislav Delay, has been exploring various iterations of the "dub culture vs. electronica", since 1997. His sonic crafts and unique signature sound have been sought after by an eclectic range of bands and artists, ranging from Massive Attack, Hauschka, Black Dice, Autopoieses, Animal Collective, or AGF. Vladislav Delay met Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare (the most prolific Jamaican rhythm section and production duo) thanks to a series of jam sessions. Trumpet player Nils-Petter Molvaer had been asked by the Jamaicans to join them and he invited Delay alongside guitar player Eivind Aarset to tag along, which eventually turned into the Nordub project. The result of these jam sessions turned into an album, mixed and mostly produced by Vladislav Delay, released on the label Okeh. It was also followed by an extensive series of live dates. This one-shot reunion was the beginning of another story: a trio composed by Delay, Dunbar, and Shakespeare. In January 2019, Vladislav Delay went to Kingston and spent some days at The Anchor studios, to record drums and bass with S&R, some voice takes and a series of atmospheric field recordings. Back to Finland, Delay started to experiment with this precious material, mixing, and overdubbing, in the comfort and quiet of his studio, based on the island of Hailuoto, Baltic Sea, Northern Finland, giving another feeling to the Jamaican trip. This became a tribute to the "dub spirit", but in a very personal way, far beyond any influence or "the obvious". 500-Push-Up is two worlds collapsing, merging, also showing some intriguing approach of the Jamaican groove, used as a filigree, like the echo or the ghost of reggae, converging and conversing with a post-industrial and experimental approach. To file beside experiments -- for instance -- such as Lee Perry's Scientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires (1981) or the On U-Sound productions. Somewhere between the old-school electronica culture, the soundscaping, the experimental paths of Lee Perry and Adrian Sherwood, ghostly clubbing anthems, minimalism, pop, jazz, without being influenced, Vladislav Delay is building a drifting and coherent sound enigma. Personnel: Vladislav Delay - electronics, sampling, percussion; Sly Dunbar - drums; Robbie Shakespeare - bass.
