1. Simiah - Diamonds
Only 300 copies ever pressed!
This instrumental Hip Hop 45 is an ode to the love of Jazz Fusion and that dusty sound with handful of tracks recorded between 2013-2015. Both of the tracks Love Fusion & Floating were made over the course of 3 epic days locked in the studio on the MPC 2500.
As Simiah (an ex Nottingham beatmaker) tells it, Diamonds for me was basically the tipping point to where I could rock new grooves. It was like I had made anothermistake, but it was a step in the right direction. New chops and new vibes."
2. Lewis Parker - Shark EP [Repressed]
Only 300 copies pressed. Long awaited repress with new cover art. The KingUnderground/ WODV series comes in the form of a 4-trak 12", including instrumentals, an accapella, and a brass kink track.
3. Onra - Deep in the Night
Arnaud Bernard, better known by his stage name Onra, is a French hip hop beatmaker based in Paris. His musical style has been described as worldly: a "chopped up set of RnB laden beats and electronically produced experiments laced with influences spanning the entire globe." This classic album from the funky, synth heavy, leftfield group has been imported from the US and has super limited copies.
4. El Michels Affair - Enter the 37'' Chamber
Protect ya Neck- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9K6ZeuoxkM
In this album, funk and jazz influence takes on classic Wu-Tang tunes. An essential for any Wu Tang fans with very very limited copies. Recorded at Soul Fire Studios, Brooklyn NY
5. Yesterday's New Quintet- Yesterday's Universe
Bitches Brew- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0pDAcTsDx0
With very limited copies, and exported from US, this is a Jazz project from Otis Jackson aka Madlib. Yesterdays Universe is an album released on Stone Throw Records.

6. Dert Beats - West Side of the Moon
This album is an instrumental hip-hop cover of the seminal Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon. Originally released in 2007 as a free mp3 album, this release is made up of the artists 20 favorite tracks remastered.
7. Michael Liggins - Loaded to the Gills
It simply doesn’t get heavier than Phoenix, Arizona’s Michael Liggins and The Super Souls. While Dyke and the Blazers were recording some of funk music’s premier sides in this dusty desert city, Liggins and company set up shop in a cheap studio to record two dirty, downright psychedelic, peyote-ingesting funk tunes that would go on to languish locally for nearly thirty years.“Loaded to the Gills” and “Loaded Back” are two fine examples of Black American rock littered with breakbeats and possessing the off-kilter grooves that immediately appeal to the funky soul of hip hop generation.
8. Lootpack - Loopdigga
Lootpack is Madlib, Wildchild, DJ Romes. Loopdigga EP collects tracks from Lootpack's early, out-of-print 12-inch singles, each taken from the original masters. One side is fully vocal and the other is fully instrumental.
10. Various Artists - Digging in a colemine
Imported from the US, this album is a combination of killer drum breaks, interposed with instrumental soul and funk workouts. An Awesome, diverse selection!
11. Rubber Soul - The Beatles
Rubber Soul was the album where the moptops grew up. It was also where they were smoking loads of weed, so all through these songs, wild humor and deep emotion go hand in hand, like George Harrison and cowboy hats. (No rock star has ever looked less stupid in a cowboy hat than George on the back cover.)
Absolute classic album, reissued in mono.
13. Sleaford Mods -Divide and Exit
These guys scream Nottingham and punk aesthetics.The formula is simple: Fearn drops the beat, a rickety stomp of drum machine and lurking bass guitar. Williamson steps to the mic and words pour out like slurry from a pipe...
Like a politicised Mike Skinner or John Cooper Clarke up for a scrap, both angry and funny
14. Quasimoto- The Unseen
The Unseen is the debut studio album by Quasimoto, an alter ego of American hip hop musician Madlib . It was released under Stones Throw Records on June 13, 2000. It was re-released in 2005 as a deluxe edition with a bonus CD containing the instrumental version of the album.
Madlib took mushrooms while creating the album for a month. It was co-mixed by Kut Masta Kurt and Peanut Butter Wolf. The cover was designed by Jeff Jank.
15. The Beatles -MonoMasters
Love me Do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbt8oH5Lxto
Mono Masters is a compilation album by The Beatles, and is an alternate, all-mono version of the album Past Masters. Mono Masters was originally a two-CD set included as part of The Beatles in Mono box set, now available here on vinyl, our favourite format!
16. Cypress Hill -Cypress Hill
Cypress Hill were also one of the first rap groups to bridge the gap with fans of both hard rock and alternative rock. In keeping with their promarijuana stance, Cypress Hill intentionally crafted their music to sound stoned -- lots of slow, lazy beats, fat bass, weird noises, and creepily distant-sounding samples. This debut album is a killer introduction to the crew!
17. KMD- Black Bastards
Shelved by Elektra Records—ostensibly due to the album's incendiary artwork—less than a month before it was set to be in stores, KMD's Black Bastards is essentially MF DOOM's origin story. It is often hailed as the best rap album that you've never heard.
18. The Pharcyde- Bizarre Ride II
The album was produced by former group member J-Swift, and features only one guest appearance, provided by little known Los Angeles rapper Bucwheed (known then as "Buckwheat" from The Wascals). In the years after its release, Bizarre Ride has been hailed by music critics and alternative hip hop fans, as a classic hip hop album along with Souls of Mischief's "93 Till Infinity", and has appeared in numerous publications' "best albums" lists.
19. Quasimoto- The Further Adventures of Lord Quas
Second full-length album by Quasimoto and Madlib. The Further Adventures plays something like a smoked-out comedy/crime Blaxploitation flick, with Madlib and Quas in a more chaotic state then on The Unseen.
Further Adventures thrills some, confuses and frustrates others, and in the end, continues to cement Madlib's reputation as one of the most creative and fearlessly skewed creators in hip-hop.
20. Monyaka- Reggaenomics
This six-piece, Jamaican-born reggae act, based in Brooklyn, New York, USA, was led by guitarist/vocalist Errol Moore. At the time of their hit in 1983 other group members included Beres Barnet (guitar/vocals), Paul Henton (bass/vocals), Richard Bertram (drums, percussion), William Brown and John Allen (keyboards). Formed in 1974 as the Soul Supersonics, they backed visiting reggae stars and released their first single, ‘Rocking Time’, in 1977. They followed this with Classical Roots, both records being released in the USA on their Hevyaka label. Under the new name Monyaka (Swahili for ‘good luck’), they recorded ‘Stand Up Strong’ in 1982. A year later, with just three original members left, they had a UK Top 20 hit with ‘Go Deh Yaka’.
21. Ghetto Concept- Certified/ Mista CracKED
Straight out of the north-west neighbourhood of Rexdale, Ghetto Concept kick-started Toronto hip-hop in the mid-90s with an uncompromising high-energy lyrical style. Their Da Grassroots-scored singles “Certified” and “E-Z on the Motion” (featuring Infinite who left the group soon after), won them back-to-back Best Rap Recording at the Junos -- Canada’s version of the Grammys -- in 1995 and 1996. After releasing their noteworthy self-titled debut, Kwajo and Dolo also released the 2001 single “Too Much” which featured Maestro, Kardinal and Snow among others on the high-profile remix.
1. Juicy Lucy- Juicy Lucy
Condition: Good Plus
The band formed in 1969 and immediately notched a UK Top 20 hit with their cover version of the Bo Diddley composition "Who Do You Love?". Their self-titled debut album then fell just shy of the Top 40 in the UK Albums Chart. The album's cover featured a burlesque dancer named Zelda Plum, naked except for a covering of fruit.
2. Miles Davis - Bitches Brew
Bitches Brew was Davis's first gold #record; it sold more than half a million copies. Upon release, it received a mixed response, due to the album's unconventional style and experimental sound. Later, Bitches Brew gained recognition as one of jazz's greatest albums and a progenitor of the jazz rock genre, as well as a major influence on rock and funk musicians. The album won a Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album in 1971.
3. Lou Reed- Berlin
Condition: Very Good
First released in 1973, it was a commercial failure but became a cult classic. Berlin came hot on the heels of Reed’s glam rock masterpiece Transformer. Anyone expecting a commercial follow-up was non-plussed to say the least.
4. Lester Young- Volume 8
Condition: Very Good
Young was an evolutionary saxophonist and produced nearly all of his major work as a sideman. He made his reputation as the featured soloist in the Count Basie Orchestra, graduated to legend as an accompanist for Billie Holiday, and even in his small-group sessions hid behind leaderless monikers like “Kansas City Six.” Young’s music under his own name was still brilliant—sometimes among his very best—but never as earth-shattering as the records he made with the Count or Lady Day. Still, there’s no question that Young was a leader in his jazz universe, not a follower.
5. Atomic Rooster- Death Walks Behind You
Condition: Very Good
Death Walks Behind You is the #second studio album by British rock band Atomic Rooster. It was their first album to receive US release, albeit in a different sleeve. It is commonly thought of as the archetypal Atomic Rooster album, recorded by the 'classic' line-up of Vincent Crane, John Du Cann and Paul Hammond. It is certainly, critically and commercially, their most successful album and often hailed as a classic of the progressive rock genre. It also produced the hit single "Tomorrow Night" (UK #11), which became one of the band's best-known songs. The album's cover features the William Blake monotype Nebuchadnezzar.
6. Pulp- This is Hardcore
Condition: Near Mint
"This is the sound of someone losing the plot/you're gonna like it, but not a lot." So says Jarvis Cockeron "The Fear," the opening track on This is Hardcore , the ambitious follow-up to Pulp's breakthrough Different Class, thereby providing his own review for the album. Cokcer doesn't quite lose the plot on This is Hardcore, but the ominous, claustrophobic "The Fear" makes it clear that this is a different band, one that no longer has anthems like "Common People" in mind.
7. Adam F- Circles (Limited Edition Remix Single Sided)
Circles itself needs no introduction being one of the seminal jungle/drum and bass tracks from the 90’s. This remix however is the ultra rare one sided etched promo copy released exclusively on Section 5 Records in limited numbers and reportedly only sent to key dnb DJs and with limited distribution in record shops. This particular remix is quite subtle compared to some of the other remixes retaining all the elements of the original, noticeably focusing on the bassline and flute sampled from Bob James - "Westchester Lady" whilst adding a few other minor elements.
8. Potential Bad Boy- Capsules/ Baby be mine 2nite (Promo version)
Rare white label version of the 1994 Jungle classic.
9. The Secret Policeman's Other Ball - Airplay Sampler E.P.
These performances were recorded live, at the fourth of the galas produced bi-annually to raise funds for the Nobel Peace Prize- winning human rights organisation- Amnesty International. The 1979 shoe "The Secret Policeman's Ball" introduced a new element- that of surprise appearances by rock musicians. The Sting, Collins cuts are the most amazing, powerful, moving versions of the songs you will ever hear in an acoustic format. The Geldof "Monday" cut is the best version of this song ever done.
All proceeds from the sale of this record, will be donated to Amnesty International.
10. Ruddy Thomas- Don't Want to Lose You
Ruddy Thomas, born July 12, 1951, was one of Jamaica’s premiere entertainers working as a singer, songwriter, producer and studio engineer. He penned and recorded local and international hits including Loving Pauper, Let’s Make A Baby and People Make The World Go Round. Thomas also recorded duets with J.C. Lodge, (Time For Love) Marcia Akins (The Closer I get To you), Pam Hall (You Can’t Hide) and the late Cynthia Schloss (Don’t Want To Lose You, How Can I Let You Get away, There Is A Fire) and an album with Susan Cadogan Ruddy Thomas And Susan Cadogan.
11. Dire Straits
Dire Straits' minimalist interpretation of pub rock had already crystallized by the time they released their eponymous debut. Driven by Mark Knopfler's spare, tasteful guitar lines and his husky warbling, the album is a set of bluesy rockers. And while the bar band mentality of pub-rock is at the core of Dire Straits -- even the group's breakthrough single, "Sultans of Swing," offered a lament for a neglected pub rock band -- their music is already beyond the simple boogies and shuffles of their forefathers, occasionally dipping into jazz and country. Knopfler also shows an inclination toward Dylanesque imagery, which enhances the smoky, low-key atmosphere of the album.
12. Cream - Fresh Cream
Condition: Very Good +
Laid down at the height of the UK blues boom, Fresh Cream covers the kind of territory you might expect from three of the most respected players on the scene at the time. With Clapton fresh just from his time with John Mayall, Ginger Baker leaving behind the R'n'B backwaters of Graham Bond Organisation, and a woefully under-employed Jack Bruce hightailing it from the increasingly pop-leaning Manfred Mann, the electric blues was their natural turf.
13. Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers- Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers
Condition: Very Good
Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers is the 1971 debut album of Theodore Roosevelt "Hound Dog" Taylor. Cub Coda of Allmusic describes it as "wild, raucous, crazy music straight out of the South Side clubs", and calls it "one of the greatest slide guitar albums of all time". The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings describes its sound as "loud, harsh, boxy and exciting".
14. Black Sabbath- Attention! (Rare Japanese Pressing)
Condition: Very Good
In Europe, WWA offered a sampling of Black Sabbath's late-'60s/early-'70s output with its two Attention LPs. Both were pressed on high-quality vinyl, and both offered excellent sound by '70s standards. Attention, Vol.1 focuses mainly on classics from Sabbath's first two albums, Black Sabbath ("Evil Woman," "Sleeping Village," "Warning," "Behind the Wall of Sleep," "The Wizard" and "N.I.B.") and Paranoid ("Iron Man" and the title song). In fact, the only song from Black Sabbath that isn't heard on this LP is its chilling title song.
15. Aretha Franklin- Young, Gifted and Black
Condition: Very Good +
Young, Gifted and Black is a remarkable album, finding Aretha Franklin at the peak of her powers. It appeared chronologically between her two groundbreaking live records – Live at Fillmore West, which celebrated her acceptance by the rock audience, and Amazing Grace, which placed her at the heart of her gospel roots. On Young, Gifted and Black she acts as a conduit for all her influences, and produces a mesmeric, frequently rapturous work. Unlike some of her previous albums, Young, Gifted and Black stands as a complete work and her own compositions rank among her best.
16. BlowFly- Blow Fly on TV
Condition: Very Good
Blowfly on TV seems to lean a bit harder on comedy than music, with Reid goofing on top television shows and popular commercials of the day. As for the music, Blowfly on TV is, like most of the early Blowfly albums, loose but decisively funky, with a crew of solid and emphatic session cats joining Reid in his pursuit of the freaky thing. Reid is also a better singer than the material demands, doing pretty impressive impressions of Joe Tex and sounding genuinely soulful here. Lok out for 'Sesame Street' which features one of the most sampled drum breaks within Jungle music.
17. Neil Young- Harvest
Condition: Very Good
Harvest is an album by Neil Young, which was the best-selling album of 1972. The album featured several high calibre guests, including the London Symphony Orchestra, Linda Ronstadt, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash, David Crosby and James Taylor. Harvest hit #1 on the Billboard Music Charts (North America) pop albums chart, spawning two hit singles, "Old Man", which peaked at #31 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Heart of Gold", which peaked at #1.
18. Goldfrapp- Supernatur
Supernature is the third studio album by English electronic music duo Goldfrapp, released on 17 August 2005 by Mute Records. The album received generally favourable reviews, with most critics complimenting its blend of pop and electronic music. It debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 52,976 copies, and was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. Supernature has sold one million copies worldwide. The album's lead single, "Ooh La la", reached number four on the UK Singles Chart, becoming the duo's highest-peaking single to date.
19. Junior Cook- Pressure Cooker
Cook was born in Pensacola, Florida. After playing with Dizzy Gillespie in 1958, Cook gained some fame for his longtime membership in the Horace Silver Quintet (1958–1964); when he and Blue Mitchell left that band, Cook played in Mitchell's quintet (1964–1969). Later associations included Freddie Hubbard, Elvin Jones, George Coleman, Louis Hayes (1975–1976), Bill Hardman (1979–1989), and the McCoy Tyner big band. In addition to many appearances as a sideman, Junior Cook recorded as a leader for Jazzland (1961), Catalyst (1977), Muse, and SteepleChase. He also taught at Berklee School of Music for a year during the 1970.
20. Piero Umiliani- Today's Sound
Condition: Very Good
Although he is best known for lounge-oriented film scores like Svezia Inferno E Paradiso and Angeli Bianchi...Angeli Neri, Italian composer Piero Umiliani was also a prolific composer of easy listening pop. His finest effort in this vein was To-Day's Sound, a 1971 instrumental double album. This adventurous undertaking manages to justify its length by dishing up 21 tight, punchy instrumentals that mix lounge, jazz, easy listening, and pop hooks in equal measure. To-Day's Sound is also notable because it incorporates the then-new Moog synthesizer into a large number of its tracks. The track 'Good Morning Sun' has been sampled by Flatbush Zombies (frequently collaborate with ASAP Mob).
21. Michael Prophet/ Trinity- Praise you Jah Jah/ Ja Jah Dub
Michael Prophet (born 1957 in Kingston, Jamaica) is a roots reggae singer known for his "crying" tenor vocal style, whose recording career began in 1977. Prophet's first recordings were for producer Yabby You in 1977, debuting with the single "Praise You Jah Jah", which had actually been written five years earlier. He cites Bob Andy as his main influence as a singer.
22. Mr Scruff- Hocus Pocus E.P. (Signed copy!)
Mr. Scruff is the debut studio album by the eponymous British DJ. It was released via Pleasure Music on May 12, 1997. The album saw the emergence of one of Scruff's obsessions — sea life. The opening track, "Sea Mammal", was the first of several to use cut-up recordings of voice overs from children's stories and nature documentaries to create surreal and silly stories. The track is a tribute to Boogie Down Productions' track "My Philosophy", and was originally released as the B-side to Scruff's debut release, the single "Hocus Pocus" (1995). The album also contains another track that references sea creatures — the album's closer, "Wail" (being a homophone for "whale").
23. Rubberman- Rubble E.P.
4 track killer grime instrumentals from 2006.
24. Brownswood workshop- Multidirection 2 Compilation (rare Japanese Pressing!)
Rare japanese pressing of this diverse jazz compilation from Gilles Peterson's Brownswood label.
25. Outlaw Candy/ Ninja Yout- Back Home/ Move ono body
Outlaw has a love and strength within music production. He is the European Caribbean Number one entertainer. His career has a depth and influence from dancehall reggae, starting and performing his DJ lyrics for Missile Sound system delivering the sounds and techniques which he admired from the sounds of Saxson, also King Jammy's and Kilomanjaro sound systems. He recorded his first tune 'Wha you Bogle fa' released on High Society Records.
Outlaw started his first label 'Missile', Internationally linking to different DJ's for Dub Plates and music production, also pursuing his own recording career.
26. Dr. Alimantado- Just The Other Day
Condition: Very Good
Dr Alimantado was one of the more obscure Reggae artists to flourish in Jamaica in the seventies and eighties. His distorted, bass-heavy blend of psychedelia and Reggae made a commenter once utter something along the lines of, “Dr Alimantado sounds as if Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley had had a baby”. One of his mentors was, fittingly, Lee “Scratch” Perry, one of the most daring, crazy, and avant-garde artists of the genre ever.
27. Glen Brown- South East Music
Most reggae fans know Glen Brown for his roots productions of the mid-70s, but his professional career actually dates to the tail end of ska. He was also known as "God Son" and "The Rhythm Master" due to his musical prowess. Brown began his musical career in the 1960s as vocalist with Sonny Bradshaw’s jazz group, subsequently recording duets with Hopeton Lewis, Lloyd Robinson and Dave Barker for producers such as Duke Reid and Coxsone Dodd. In the early 1970s, he began working as a producer, initially for the Shalimar label, and recorded Augustus Pablo--influenced melodica tracks, such as 1972's "Merry Up".
28. Richard Ace/ The Connection – Supernatural Thing / Natural Version
Featuring Richard Ace on vocals, produced by the Charmers and played by ‘ The Connection’ this record serves as a great testament to the cross pollination of US black music through to Kingston in the late 60’s / early 70’s. A great answer to Naggo Morris’ ‘Flour Power’ and a top piece in itself, both the vocal and the haunting dub version. Lovely 7″, and not many in store.
29. Dennis Brown- Concentration
Dennis Emmanuel Brown was a Jamaican reggae singer. During his prolific career, which began in the late 1960s when he was aged eleven, he recorded more than 75 albums and was one of the major stars of lovers rock, a subgenre of reggae. Bob Marley cited Brown as his favourite singer, dubbing him "The Crown Prince of Reggae", and Brown would prove influential on future generations of reggae singers.

Mid - to late 70's she released some disco albums at Salsoul Records with Salsoul Orchestra, led by Vincent Montana, Jr.. To most American audiences, Charo is the voluptuous bimbo of game show fame, whose running gags include "cuchi cuchi" and mangling the English language. She has big hair, dangling cleavage, and usually she is the butt of her own jokes. She is, however, an accomplished classical guitarist upon which her later work concentrates.
4. Chequers - Undecided Love

Outside of work as an extra in a handful of mainstream films, she enjoyed little success; eventually, she was forced to turn to X-rated material. Beginning in 1970 with "Dance Of Love" Andrea had found her niche. During her early days she was sometimes billed as: Inger Kissen, Singh Low or Andrea Travis. Between 1970 and 1975 she had racked up an impressive 14 film roles and had established herself as a "star" in the adult entertainment business. Producer Gregg Diamond wrote and she sang "More, More, More". With the unexpected success of the song True and Diamond scrambled to put together an album. He wrote four new songs that they recorded in New York. The release of the album, "More, More, More" saw Andrea dominate the club charts for the entire summer with "Party Line," "Call Me," and "Fill Me Up (Heart To Heart)."

In 1984, Holloway left Salsoul Records and began to work on an album, "Crash Goes Love". Unfortunately it was never completed and only two singles were released for Streetwise, the title track and "Heartstealer".
During the following years, many of her old hits were adapted by House producers like Black Box who used the original acapellas of her songs over new melodies. Her vocals were originally used without credit, but she successfully sued the band and received an undisclosed share of the royalties. The only time she was properly paid and credited was on the Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch song "Good Vibrations" (1991), which also sampled some of her vocals for "Love Sensation".
