(LP) PLUTO - RHYTHM OF THE CITY
The time was 1988, and urban life in Miami was at its apex. After having moved from Jamaica to The Magic City in the summer of 1977, Pluto saw the future. Rhythm Of The City fully expresses this forward thrust, where technology, nightlife, love and urban vibes mingle in an exciting vision of a past future. Recorded at Earthman Studio in Miami, and produced by Geoffrey Chung, the album overthrows the normal rules of reggae, mixing it together with funk, soul and disco, and giving birth to what Pluto himself describes as urban reggae folklore.

(LP) 33 EWE - BY JJM
33 EWE is formed from the meeting of Joseph, Mawuko, Togolese multi-instrumentalist musicians; and Juan, a Cantabrian drummer living temporarily in Togo and a neighbor of both."By JJM" is 33 EWE's first recording. It is an album that claims for meeting and dialogue, in this case, between Africa and Europe in four languages ​​(Spanish, English French and Ewé, the language of Togo). The music walks between traditional West African rhythms and African Gospel with structures that tend to pop and catchy choruses.

(LP) COLONEL ELLIOTT & THE LUNATICS - INTERSTELLAR REGGAE DRIVE
Limited Edition / 180g Vinyl / Remastered
‘What if Lee Perry and Lex Baxter have been caught in a firetrap altogether ?’ A weird experiment in dub & reggae coined in 1973, the sole album of this interstellar venture was a case in point. Jamaican rhythms (provided by the almighty Trojan records crew) with legendary prog/psych keyboardist KEN ELLIOT (former member of influential british bands such as Second Hand and Seventh Wave) creating groovy instrumental on top ! 10 tracks including the JOE MEEK classic Telstar for a space-age trip that sounds like a highly-stoned caribbean easy listening session. A truly gem on its own, incredible strange music for the suburbs!
