Jura Soundsystem – Remix Special (Quiet Village, Tapes & Goodblock mixes)

A remix 12” of three Jura Soundsystem classics featuring interpretations from Quiet Village, Tapes and Good Block.TIP!

“Having released a few EPs and an LP it felt like a fun thing to get some remixes. I’ve ticked off a few musical bucket list items with this 12”, Quiet Village being the big one. I’m a bit of a fanboy and Joel & Matt have not disappointed with a remix that sounds simultaneously futuristic and classic. Tapes brings his unique brand of Dub House and Good Block round off the party with a 90’s influenced slice of Balearic house”. (Kevin / Jura Soundsystem).

The NM Band – She Wants (Isle of Jura 12″)

Official reissue of ‘She Wants’, one of the first UK Street Soul singles originally released in 1985 by The NM Band. TIP!

The NM Band was an alias for UK Lovers Rock band Natural Mystic, who by 1985 wanted to try something away from their trademark roots reggae sound. Influenced by the availability of affordable hardware the band set about fusing Reggae and Soul using an Akai Drum machine, Yamaha DX7 and Roland sound module. ‘She Wants’ is one of the forebearers of UK Street Soul, raw machine drums paired with an incredibly soulful vocal from Ashley Sommers.

Watch out for the Dub Version on B, ‘She Wants’ (More)!

Out through the masters of slow burn, Isle of Jura.

Absolutely amazing trilogy – MUST HAVE if you already loved Transmissions one and two!

Jura Sound System – Transmission Two (2LP)

Just like the first transmission this compilation full of unreleased and sought after gems by Jura Sound System turned out to be one of the most addictive albums from 2020. From Ambient, Dub House to slow Disco, it’s all there to spread instant positive vibes and take you to another place.

Bella Vista – Mister Wong (Isle Of Jura 12″)

Isle Of Jura nailing it again with this 1982 Space Pop 12″-oddity, including the sought after Disco Dub version that lets the bassline work its magic alongside some heavy dub delays. On the flip Jura Soundsystem provide an extended version with added live percussion. Great stuff.

A record like a thick fluffy carpet – couch listening essential release!

Len Leise / Jura Soundsystem – Dear Adrian / Udaberri Blues (12″)

The first release on Temples Of Jura, a new Isle Of Jura offshoot, is a split Dub 12″ featuring Melbourne’s Len Leise and Adelaide’s Jura Soundsystem. As the title suggests Len’s track is a homage to the legendary Dub pioneer Adrian Sherwood whilst Jura Soundsystem debut with a more Rootsy excursion across 3 mixes.

Lovely tape grit on A, and very cool more and more spaced out dubs on B with a distinct 90s vibe. Great for horizontal position listening.

Shiva – Never Gonna Give You Up (12″)

Two lost Disco classics featuring soul legend Leon Ware and Jo Ann Harris, a little known backing singer for Bob Dylan throughout the 80s. Produced Ira Newborn, Hollywood soundtrack royalty who composed the scores for an incredible run of films including The Blues Brothers, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Naked Gun trilogy, Weird Science, Ace Ventura and Uncle Buck.

There are two original versions backed with extended instrumentals sourced from a rare Lazer Disc Version of the album. It feels right to shine a light on one of Leon Ware’s lesser known performances, whilst the Jo Ann Harris cut has a distinct Balearic air featuring sultry keys and sax at a tempo of 98 BPM.

140gram pressing in 3mm spine Disco Sleeve, out on Isle of Jura.
