Big Dada Recordings lace us with fresh vinyl stock of Roots Manuva's new album Bleeds, the orange wax sold out rather sharpish so it's the ordinary black pressing now. We've also stocked up on previous vinyl albums, most cd versions are also still in stock, namely Brand New Second Hand, Run Come Save Me, Dub Come Save Me, Slime & Reason, 4everevolution and the Banana Skank EP too, don't slip.
After swiftly selling out of all our initial stock of Skuff's new album Level, I swiftly copped more off him last night when he came down to the radio show, a cracking album and as we spoke on last night, one of his best yet. Be sure to check it out, and support the man by purchasing the physical product. The full show will be uploaded to our Mixcloud spot later today for those who didn't catch it live.
Gotta give a massive shout to Task Force emcee Chester P for his recent work helping the homeless, if you're unaware of what he's been up to on the streets of London this year, please watch this, and support the cause. Power to the people.
So tonight is the last Suspect Packages Radio Show of the year, going out live from 9-11pm (gmt) on Kane FM with very special guests Skuff & Stakka Lyrics inside the studio. Any questions you might wanna fire at them please hit me up, nuff respek, catch you later tonight on the airwaves...
Yes yo, fresh out the box, brand new Suspect Packages t-shirts and sweatshirts, very limited numbers, only 15 tees, and 15 of each colour sweat. Once they're gone they're gone! All pre-orders have left today, big ups.
Following his recently re-released London Underground 2014 mixtape usb, DJ MK returns with another, The Holy Grail - The Complete Series. What it says on the tin, just short of 40 mixtapes spanning MK's outstanding career, all his legendary mixes remastered and housed onto one cassette usb as mp3's, plus extras. Not only is he a dope DJ, he also holds down Kiss FM's Hip Hop show, he's Dizzee Rascal and Roots Manuva's DJ, and of course the UK's mixtape king, get to know.
We should have these in stock on Tuesday ready to mail out, if not they'll ship inbetween Xmas and New Year. We started out selling MK's mixtapes many years ago, so it's great to have this product exclusively onboard here at Suspect Packages, don't sleep!
London's Granville Sessions are recording a new album, as yet untitled, however here's the first taste of what to expect, the very impressive Leave It, gwan!
Lifted off the bangin' new Dead Players Freshly Skeletal album, here's a video for Drenching.
Bangin' out the SP bunker today and fresh through the door, the all new Remulak produced double sided 7" entitled Karma b/w Maintain on the newly formed Village Live label. The a-side features Cappo on a super charged break beat burner, whilst Lewis Parker rides the buttah b-side with Jabba The Kut lacing the ill scratches. All housed in a cracking full colour spined sleeve, only 200 of these have been pressed, get in there.
As promised, here's the two new Reggae Roast 7" releases lifted off their recent EP with Brother Culture, the title track entitled The Flava coming on a dancehall flex and ready to ramp up the session with a serious message. And secondly there's Seal, educating the people on the seal of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, get to know. Production on both releases come from Reggae Roast's Jim Moodie alongside Tradesman & Danny T.
Two massive vinyl releases have come into stock from the Conscious Sounds camp, limited copies of North London's King General and his classic Long Long Time 10" with three extra dub cuts onboard, and the Hot Stepper / Bongoman 10" with Jonah Dan. Both of these releases were originally released in 2006 via the sub label Lovedub Music and have continually ruled the dance when played, strictly digikal vibes, conscious stylee.
All new MPC Series right about now, man like Mr Brown up inside.
Look out for the debut album A Figure Of Speech landing in February from North London's Shay D, nicely building up to be a solid release with a positive message throughout. Producers onboard are Chairman Maf, Nutty P, Cappah, Jimmy Logic, Dos Gringos & Chris Prythm, and here's the first outing for ya, also the first track on the album too, The Who, What, Why produced by Chairman Maf.
Brighton based Roots Garden Records deliver a limited vinyl version of their recent album with Brixton mic veteran Brother Culture, and long time producer Nick Manasseh. Here we have the showcase style of All A We, four vocal cuts feature from the album, followed by their counterpart dub version. All delivered in fine fashion sealed in a wicked colour cover that also contains a download code for the full 12 track album.
Another slice of Reggae, Roots & Dancehall treats from back in the day, followed by an upfront assault of new and forthcoming releases, DUB CHRONICLES #64 live from Kane FM last night. Get busy on the play button and tunn it up! Much respek.
