An essential slice of UK Dancehall & Rubadub flavour lands into the bunker from London champs Wrongtom & The Ragga Twins. Their debut album In Time is a perfect combination of producer and emcee's, as Wrongtom takes Flinty Badman & Deman Rockers back to their North London Unity Soundsystem roots and injects the bubblin' lyrics with a likkle digikal skank. The result is fire! Rolling on CD and single vinyl, the latter of which comes with a free 7" and download card which contains the full album, plus an exclusive dub version too, bonus pressure, nuh miss dis. Cracking artwork onboard too. All pre-orders left today.
Big and heavy instrumental boom bap beats from Manchester's Kuartz, all onboard this limited number of Shurikens albums, a limited 300 pressing on the ever impressive Village Live Records. Each copy comes with obi strip, two free stickers and a postcard. We've been fully pounding this one out the speakers, road test done proper, don't miss this.

So here it is, our brand new 7" release and debut from Bristol's Evermoor Sound, a forward thinking Roots & Dub production crew down with the Split Prophets massive. Here they tackle Ranking Dread's classic General from 1980 with murderous effect, lacing the listener with an upfront sound system stepper that's been causing havoc over the last few months wherever played. Not only do they take the original vocal into 2017 but they flip the b-side with their own Melodica Cut, a strong track in its own right that itself has had numerous pull ups in the dance. The record is limited to 300 copies, no digital, a strictly vinyl affair, we hope you like it as much as we do.

Glad to have them onboard here at Suspect Packages.

Lovin' it.
