Ed West & RTKal - The Frass EP

Ed West & RTKal - The Frass EP (Digital single, Tru Thoughts, 2015)


Between a rub-a-dub/hip hop dubstep stomper ('Frass feat. Serocee'), some mad rapping over dark minimal dancehall vibes ('Madover'), a hypnotic Jamaican hip hop piece ('Woah Nanna') and a stripped-down to more-or-less-massive drums hip hop freestyle & chorus tune, this is guaranteed sound system action!...

Ghost Writerz - For The Love feat. Amy True (Digital Single, Tru Thoughts, 2015)


Already the 4th single extracted from the 'GWZ All The Way' released in july 2015, 'For The Love' is a dub/hip hop anthem ready to ignite the stages. There's even a wobbly remix by Matta for the more raving clubs. And a digital AA-side, with the dancehall/hip hop banger 'Wind Up Your Waist'. More of this is welcome anytime!...

Sleepy Time Ghost - Feel feat Bahia

Sleepy Time Ghost - Feel feat. Bahia (Digital single, Tru Thoughts, 2015)


Always looking out for the brand new thing, Brighton's finest Tru Thoughts Recordings keeps on exploring with this single from one half of the Ghost Writerz sound system, in between modern R&B and soul with an obvious dubby trip hop influence coming all the way from Jamaica. The a bit more Jungle-ish Hylu remix (featured on Ghost Writerz' exclusive Paris DJs mix) is my favourite here, but in...

Quantic - Spark It feat Shinehead

Quantic - Spark It feat. Shinehead (12", Tru Thoughts, 2015)


Already the 5th single extracted from the may 2014 'Magnetica' album, 'Spark It sees producer Quantic go back to the reggae/dancehall vibes he once stepped a toe in with his Flowering Inferno concept. Featuring guest vocals from late 80s/early 90s Jamaican singer/toaster/rapper from New York Shinehead, don't expect any cumbia here, this is pure retro UK dancehall, roots & catchy! Bonus remixes...

Pete Cannon Meets Ghost Writerz - How We Living (Digital Single, Tru Thoughts, 2015)


Hot on the heels of their first release, Tru Thoughts' UK Sound System Culture branch Sharp and Ready is back with a new single, a big jungle/reggae tune sampling the early 1970s 'Jah Shakey/Rockers Hop' Riddim from Coxsone Dodd & Roland Alphonso. Manchester-based hip hop/jungle producer Pete Cannon join forces here with the Ghost Writerz duo we recently invited for a guest mix on Paris DJs....

Ghost Writerz Sharp And Ready Selection

Ghost Writerz - Sharp And Ready Selection


"The Ghost Writerz step cross with an exclusive-jammed mix of dubplates and pre-release material. You ready for this?" While a majority of labels shift their focus on reissues (with no production costs) and live bands (with a simple old school business model: touring and selling merch), there still are a few out there who do the real job: digging "in the now", finding, signing...
