California

New Vinyl: $19.98 Buy

​The California EP pays homage to Wes’ first full-length release, Florida, where he spent much of his youth. The sonics on California share a similar tone: slow, vibey, & melancholic, a bit of a departure from the sound he has been known for in recent years. The vibe of the EP is somewhat dark, contrary to the warm and carefree lifestyle one would expect of someone living in California. This may very well be a reflection of the bleak underside of fame & excess in Hollywood​.​ The EP is much more than just a handful of tracks​; it's an introspective body of work.  Diplo has recruited industry heavyweights and newcomers alike, including Santigold, Dram, Lil’ Yachty, MØ, Goldlink and more, as well as LA-based artist, February James, who was commissioned to create inspired portraits of each of the artists that appear on the EP, housed in the gatefold jacket. 

SIDE A Worry No More (feat. Lil Yachty & Santigold), Look Back (feat. DRAM)
SIDE B Get It Right (feat. MØ & GoldLink) [Remix] Plus 3 currently unreleased tracks.

Spectrum

First time reissue on any format of the 1994 album by Spectrum. Spectrum is the project of Sonic Boom (ex-Spacemen 3 as well as Experimental Audio Research) and collaborators. Technically his 3rd album but the 2nd under the name Spectrum. Carrying on the signature sound exemplified on “Soul Kiss (Glide Divine)”, “Highs, Lows, And Heavenly Blows” lulls the listener into a deep trance with it’s droning and hypnotic tracks and treated vocals on top of a myriad of analog synths and Sonic’s recognizable guitar treatments. The first track “Undo the Taboo” sets the stage for a meditative ride that doesn’t let up until the last track. Absolutely crucial and long awaited reissue.

Spice 1

New Vinyl: $26.98 Buy

Spice 1 was first discovered by Bay Area legend Too $hort and became a member of $hort’s group The Dangerous Crew. Though lacking the national name recognition of Too $hort, Spice 1 is a legend all his own in and around the Bay. His name is an acronym for Sex, Pistols, Indo, Cash and Entertainment – also a fitting description of topics he rhymes about. Before dropping his debut full-length Spice 1 dropped an EP in ’91 on California Indy label Triad Records. The EP peaked at # 69 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart, no small feat. With sales this brisk, he was picked up by Jive Records and this, his self-titled debut, was issued the next year. Week one sales were disappointing, but that all turned around the following week with 900,000 scans, a Gold record and a permanent spot in Bay Area Hip Hop history.  THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

Sun Ra

In 1973 Sun Ra and Arkestra established base in Variety Recording Studios in NYC to record an album for the Impulse! jazz label; depending on who you ask, this album was to be either titled Cymbals or Symbols. Half of this set eventually surfaced on the astro black market, but we’ve gone back to the original reels to bring you Cymbals as it was meant to be heard and paired with a second LP (Symbols) of unheard material from the 1973 sessions. Hear Ra’s Baroque soundscapes, electrolytic clusters and dithering Moogs catalyze images of monoliths, space stations, computers malfunctioning and galaxies imploding on pristine colored colored vinyl, all packaged in a gatefold jacket with liner notes by known Ra-fficianado Brother Cleve, with new art interpreted from the work of Jim Flora.

35th Anniversary reissue of Punk rock collaboration (UK SUBS' Charlie Harper with THE VIBRATORS' Knox, with the Subs Alvin Gibbs plus Matthew Best), + bonus, previously unreleased LP with 3 7" b-sides and a live gig. First time on vinyl since the original 1983 release. Limited Edition in RED vinyl. Gatefold sleeve with the original artwork, a photo-collage by Knox (in tribute to the Stones' Exile on Main Street cover).
In 1983 the UK Subs and the Vibrators found themselves at a loose end after some lengthy touring. Old friends Charlie Harper and Ian 'Knox' Carnochan got together and started making some music they shared a common love for.
Along with a cover of the New York Dolls and Iggy & the Stooges, they added their own compositions that fitted. A couple of punk classics emerged; 'New Barbarians' and 'Limo Life' were both chosen for release as 7" singles. Charlie and Knox, as the Urban Dogs went on to record a number of further albums together, and the collaboration continues to this day.
