A little something for the holidays to share with your loved ones, It's All Soul Vol.3, a two hour black wax rotation mix an' blend of warm and easy slow jams, tales of love won, and lost. Grab an extra strong mint, press play and snuggle up close with someone, ideally someone you know. If that's not your steez, then don't forget my three Jamdown Jingle Bellz selections too, much better than Cliff or Slade at this time of the year.
Much respek, and thank you to all our customers this year keeping us busy! Merry Xmas & Happy New Year to you all.

Here's a brand new b-boy banger from London's 45 Brothers, the double sided 7" breakbeat attack of Hit Me / Own Style. Two big cuts for the dancefloor posse, injecting that old skool style and fashion to the proceedings, killing off the otherside of the circle with the powermoves none can test.
