VA - Links & Friends More Rock Steady (CD)
We are very proud to announce the first compilation of JDI material , a rare label treasured by collectors from all four corners of the world. The label ran for almost 3 years between 1965 to 1967 during the hot Ska and Rock Steady period. JDI productions had a unique hi-fashion style, different from the likes of Studio One and Prince Buster productions. The two JDI bands - The Diamonds and Los Caballeros were housed residents at the Johnson’s Drive Inn premises owned by the man himself Mr Copley Johnson with tip top singers like Lloyd Williams and Roy Panton on vocal duties. When you listen to the JDI releases , you can actually feel the vibes of the JDI night club at that present time ! The JDI band members included a young Karl “cannonball” Bryan, Sammy Ismay, Freddie Butler (brother of well know keyboardist Leslie Butler) and Lloyd Delpratt. Mr Brian Keyo provides great liner notes once again ! We hope you enjoy our new release. Available on Japanese Rock A Shacka label in CD digipak format, LP and digital download.

Desmond Dekker - 007 · The Best Of (DOCD)
Ohne »Israelites« und »007 (Shanty Town)« von Desmond Dekker wäre der Reggae um zwei unsterbliche Klassiker ärmer. Die nun wiederveröffentlichte Compilation »007 The Best Of« bildet alle Phasen der Karriere von Desmond Dekker ab und darf daher als die ultimative »Best Of« des Künstlers aus Jamaica gelten, der mit seiner einmaligen Mischung aus Reggae, Ska und Rocksteady die Welt eroberte. Dekkers Karriere begann in den 60er Jahren, in deren zweiten Hälfte er bereits internationale Hits feierte - so fand sich »007 (Shanty Town)« 1967 in den britischen Charts in den Top 15 wieder. Erstaunlich ist, dass Desmond Dekker seinen musikalischen Erfolg über drei Jahrzehnte aufrecht erhalten hat und mit so unterschiedlichen Musikern wie Robert Palmer (dieser produzierte sein Album »Compass Point«) und Jimmy Cliff zusammenarbeitete. Desmond Dekker verstarb 2006 und gilt bis heute als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter des Ska und Reggae

Dubmatix - Presents Clash Of The Titans-The System Shakedown Remixes (CD)
Jesse King aka Dubmatix is a dub mastermind from Canada. His albums “Champion Sound Clash” (2005), “Atomic Subsonic” (2006), “Renegade Rocker” (2008) and, most recently, “System Shakedown” (2010), hit the spot worldwide and shook up the reggae massives all over the planet. Dubmatix is continually evolving his style, taking new influences on board on each new recording; by now it simply doesn’t do justice to the incredible breadth of his work to slap a ‘dub’ sticker on it. His albums feature an impressive roster of respected guest stars, including Ranking Joe, Alton Ellis, Linval Thompson, Michael Rose, The Mighty Diamonds, Anthony B, Brother Culture, Freddie McGregor and many, many more. These collaborations see him effortlessly incorporating all conceivable facets of reggae and dub with a striking self-assurance and combining them with an exceptional willingness to experiment and take new directions. This kaleidoscope of variety is particularly in force on his latest album, “System Shakedown”. As well as working as a musician and producer, King is also a sought-after remixer and app designer, with recent remixes including tracks for the Easy Star All-Stars, John Brown's Body, Zion Train, Martha & The Muffins, Don Letts and Mungo’s HiFi. The concept for this new release materialised in summer 2010: on a tropically hot summer evening in Toronto, Jesse King and Karsten Frehe (Irie Ites Music) came up with the idea and immediately set about contacting some of the world’s premier dubheads to get them to contribute to a remix album straight from the bass drum.....! The remix material was so good and there was so much of it that the initially planned album was spontaneously transformed into a double LP. “Dubmatix presents Clash Of The Titans – The System Shakedown Remixes” features a fabulous line-up of remixers: Groove Corporation, Zion Train, Aldubb, Dubvisionist, TVS, Mungo's HiFi, Marcus Visionary, LionDub (not on the CD), Webcam Hi-Fi, Victor Rice, Vibronics, Subatomic Soundsystem and Nate Wize. Dubmatix contributed an alternative version of one of the tracks from the album. The resultant release is multifaceted, ranging from roots dub to steppers, stopping off to play with more experimental approaches such as dubstep and future dub along the way....dub has always been open for new styles and ideas! The voices featured on “System Shakedown” also put in an appearance: The Mighty Diamonds, Tippa Irie, Dennis Alcapone, Kulcha Ites, Jay Douglas, The Ragga Twins, Ammoye, Brother Culture and U Brown all feature with vocal parts, embellishing and enriching the futuristic sounds and vibes. Over the past months a great work has emerged and it is now poised to go straight to the hearts and feet of dubheads all over the world. "This is a release that's guaranteed to smash up the place! TurnTableTerrorist say so!!!" (WLUW Chicago - USA) The double-vinyl album is a limited, numbered edition of 500. The CD and digital online release include bonus tracks. Initiated by Irie Ites Music and Collision (Cause Of Chapter 3) label by ECHO BEACH.

Groundation - The Next Generation (CD)
After a four-year break with a renewed lineup. Founding member, singer and guitarist Harrison Stafford presents after excellent albums with his Professor Crew or the French of Brain Damage eleven songs of his regular band, which make clear that the Californians remained connected to their brand core: The beguilingly subtle melange of classically bouncy roots reggae, jazzy, funky and progressive elements and polyrhythmic hints towards South America and Africa. Crowned by the unmistakable, brightly vibrating lead voice, the band creates epic-cinematic sonic experiences with the long songs that just instantly sound like Groundation, enhanced by top-notch horn sections and backing vocals. For all its spiritual warmth, the music conveys bright-eyed and critical statements. Recorded in California's Prairie Sun Studio with Jim Fox (Don Carlos, Black Uhuru, Freddie McGregor), "The Next Generation" is a successful "comeback" and real genre highlight!

Groundation - Each One Teach One (DOCD)
Deluxe-Wiederveröffentlichung des zweiten Albums Die wahrscheinlich talentierteste Reggae-Band der Gegenwart wurde nach dem Grounation Day benannt, dem Tag, an dem Hailie Selassie 1966 Jamaika besuchte. Die Band um die Urmitglieder MARCUS URANI (Tasten und Percussions), RYAN NEWMAN (Bass) und HARRISON STAFFORD (Gesang, Gitarre und Percussions) hat sich einen weltweit mehr als respektablen Ruf im Genre erspielt. Auftritte in Marokko, Sao Paulo und eine Headliner-Show auf dem SummerJam Festival vor jeweils zehntausenden Zuschauern bilden nur einige der Höhepunkte ihrer Karriere. Mastermind Stafford war zudem der erste offiziell studierte Reggae-Magister der USA und lehrte zwischen 1999 und 2001 als Dozent für jamaikanische Musikgeschichte an der Sonoma State Universität. Seit vielen Jahren organisieren und spielen GROUNDATION zudem die beliebte „Tribute To Marley“-Tour an der US-Westküste und Stafford wirkte bei zahlreichen weiteren Projekten und Kooperationen mit. Das zweite Album der Roots / Fusion-Legende präsentiert elf grandios meditative Hymnen, über eine Stunde feinste Melange aus Rootsreggae und Jazzelementen mit deepen Conscious-Lyrics. Die Dub's wurden vom Kalifornischen Producer KING ROBBY erstellt.
