Klaus Wunderlich meets King Tubby on this spaced out living room jam by the Gl. Harlev Organ Orchestra, three seasoned veteran musicians from the Danish underground (Bo Marley, Analogik, 100% Max Akwaaba).

The tracks, all one-take recordings done with just an old Technics organ, mutate through the various presets from the built in drum machine – tango? bossa? – while getting soaked in tape delays and subtle flute or guitar overdubs, driven by the surprisingly heavy basslines coming from the old organ speakers.

Playing the organ turned out to be a three men job: Benjamin Lesak on the two-layer keyboard, Kristian Nordenthoft kneeling on the floor to operate the bass pedals by hand, while Jesper Kobberoe took care of the beats. Recorded live with only a simple microfon this document captures everything, from pure vibes to problems with a runny nose.

This re-issue of a lost gem from 2009 (as ‘Bare Spil Noget Orgel‘ on Route 66) shows what can be done in just one day: you can make a whole record (including cover art)!

ADD TAPE TO CART BUY DIGITAL

Re-issue of the highly collectable Bo Marley tape from 2009, seeing the Gl. Harlev homeboys once again power up their Chariot Of Fire (aka. the Bo mobil) to drop a floor-devastating cassette that effortlessly rolls up electrifying beats, short-wired robo-funk and a voltage drenched low-rider bass into one genre-defying reel of heavy goodness.

The patented Bo space-lyrics in German/Danish warp mode are again dealing with the big timeless themes of our age: rocking it on stage (Wir Setzt Den Trend), rolling along with the Bo mobil (Rollen Vorbei), the joys of driving a scooter (Mofa Fahren) and Robot Cars (“with volt power – yeah!”).

Watch out for the extended space funk instrumentals!

“Outta Road / Dem A Fraud”

RR01
release date: 16.02.2017
12″ vinyl (€12.90), digital

ADD VINYL TO CART BUY DIGITAL

From the remote township of Te Mata, in the rugged hills of New Zealand, comes a new imprint following in the tradition of mid-80s rub-a-dub from an often overlooked corner of dancehall culture.

The brainchild of local farmer and radio personality Red Robin – alongside the deadly production duo Naram and Art – the first 12” features two heavy-like-lead riddims with discomix cuts from four unsung heroes of the 80s with conscious, street-level lyrics.

Side A finds legendary singer Winston ‘Midnight Riders’ Powell rise again on a synth-infused piece of classic rub-a-dub. Despite being his first release in decades, he delivers a cutting edge vocal from his Kingston 9 borough about life Outta Road in the Jamaican capital. He then crosses live to special agent Speng Bond for a deejay report on the current state of Britain in Dread Outta Road.

With a more uptempo riddim, the flipside sees Toronto-based 80s star Steve Knight fire some timely shots at corrupt politicians with Dem a Fraud before Los Angeles-based MC Tippa Lee comes correct with a self-affirming deejay cut on Salute the Veteran.

Both sides are served with one-away dub mixes from Naram and added textural touches from disrupt. Mastered and cut by Pole / Scape Mastering for extra heavy low end. Strictly limited pressings.

The Upsetter Meets Jahtari In The Secret Laboratory bring together a meeting of minds for this digi-dub 8-bit 9-bar remix package being transmitted all the way from the year 2026.

The Adrian Sherwood and Style Scott-produced Lee “Scratch” Perry original, Scientific Dancehall is a rolling drumfunk heavy jazzy bumper that has long been a firm fav round these parts, but we’d almost go as far to say the Jahtari updates from Disrupt & Rootah re-route the original transmission through a pixelated Echo Dek that blends the digi-dancehall sound into something resembling the outer reaches fellow astral-travellers Tapes, Equiknoxx, Seekers & the Bokeh Versions crew.

This 7″ came out on On U Sound as a Black Friday 2016 limited edition – rare!

“8”

on Caoutchou Records
release date: 17.01.2017
limited cassette (€12,00], digital

TAPE SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

2014, boiling hot sun in Berlin: Kiki Hitomi (1/3 of King Midas Sound), Dead Fader, DJ Die Soon, and DJ Hotel gathered in a shaman’s den to record. Within 3 days without food -only surviving on green holy aroma’s- they produced 44 songs. 13 of those tracks form the album “8”.

These highly intense improvisations, all one take recordings, connect into one long bass-heavy soundtrack that gives a nod to 60’s Japanese New Wave movies like “Suna no Onna”.

The atmosphere is hauntingly claustrophobic, highly atmospheric and dense. These post apocalyptic dubs became the blueprint for Kiki Hitomi‘s LP “Karma No Kusari” on Jahtari.

Belt up for a mind-altering journey through time and space stopping by Japanese enka, 8-bit psychedelica and mutated digi dub on this genre-defying long player from King Midas Sound’s Kiki Hitomi and Jahtari bossman disrupt.

Set against an intergalactic backdrop of riddims and soundscapes “Karma No Kusari” (“Chain Of Karma”) unfolds piece by piece, with Kiki’s otherworldly tone of voice providing a ghostly atmosphere that is at times unsettling but always achingly beautiful.

This gritty disc of cosmic vintage pop – entirely done without a computer – includes compositions by Maffi, the mysterious Tapes plus a transmission from the immortal Space Ape. With stunning artwork by Kiki herself “Karma No Kusari” is indispensible for any true space cadet.

The mysterious Reverend Danny Dread descends from the mist-shrouded hills of the Jamaican hinterland to deliver a sermon to all dibby dibby soundbwoys who run their mouths. Originally cut as a dubplate on a Naram riddim engineered from the DNA of an obscure early 90s Jammys cut, “Chatty Mouth Defeat” makes it clear it’s not wise to ramp with the Colonel.

The next round of Colonel Mustard’s grenades are ready to be launched, with two veteran raggamuffin deejays riding military-grade riddims developed by Naram and disrupt.

First up, original Wild Apache legend Junior Cat unleashes a rapid-fire lyrical assault on those who fail to respect the foundations and culture of real dancehall music. “See Di Bobo Dread” shows the cat is still in fine form, riding the depth-charger bassline of Naram’s Feline riddim with gruff finesse.

release date: 11.05.2015
vinyl (€ 16,99), digital

VINYL SOLD OUT BUY DIGITAL

One night in 2011 King Midas Sound‘s Roger Robinson returned to Brixton from touring and inadvertently walked into the centre of the London riots. Through the flames and smoke he felt compelled to tell the stories of the people he saw rioting on the street that night.

With disrupt‘s dub soundtrack highlighting the triumphs and tribulations in the lives of the people of Brixton, the album unfolds like a documentary film, extending from the epicentre of the riots and rippling out from there.

Roger showcases all his poetry and singing styles over the sonic tower blocks and underground caverns of disrupt’s dub soundscapes, evoking the golden era of dub poetry of the likes of Prince Far I, Big Youth and Linton Kwesi Johnson – a time when dub poetry made you dance in the club but also made you think on the way home.

Done with lots of voltage, old school samplers, DIY synths, home made delays, dictaphones and even onboard computer mics this gritty disc will take you straight to Brixton’s streets.
