We keep on sourcing new music relentlessly. Hopefully DJs and bedroom DJs will find a few gems for their sets in there… and in all cases everyone is in for a one-hour-long trip of cool,...

The Best of 2014

It's already february 2015 and this article comes late - which always better than never! Digital sales have now become a thing of the past for many, since a bit of notoriety gets your music available for free in just a few hours after release, and since the taxation has now changed in Europe for exporting digital products (that's a 20% downfall for us in France on digital exports). Most have...

It's just meant to happen, they're too cool and original… In the meantime, the band is putting out tunes relentlessly, and their productions keeps on...

Prince Fatty Meets Nostalgia 77 - In The Kingdom Of Dub (CD, Tru Thoughts, 2014)

Along with Ticklah in the US, Grant Phabao in France & a very few others, Prince Fatty from Brighton, UK, has found his own sound in the reggae niche. Having recorded many Nostalgia 77 records in the past, it was logical to see him tackle some reggae/dub remixes of his close friend (who's also from Brighton). Quoting the title of a Scientist album from 1981, 'In The Kingdom Of Dub', implies...

Prince Fatty Meets Nostalgia 77 - Medecine Chest Dub - Skeletons Dub

Prince Fatty Meets Nostalgia 77 - Medecine Chest Dub (Digital Single, Tru Thoughts, 2014)

Among Brighton's finests producers are Prince Fatty and Nostalgia 77, who've been collaborating together for many years now. Having one of them rework some pieces of the other's catalog seemed quite obvious, and indeed it's a great idea as this (digital) single attests. 'Medecine Chest Dub' is a haunting dub, jazz and soul blend - really groovy & funky. One that deserves a 45 release!!! The...
