F5: ft. ALPS Cru

D.J. Al Bass (Alejan) and P. Smooth founded the Concept Of The ALPS in 1992 and released their debut 12" EP "Unknown" two years later in 1994. As most of you know the EP is very hard to get (rumours say 4 in existence) and not cheap which makes this partial re-release on 7" a must buy. A proper 12" re-release would be my choice!

The original 12" contained six tracks and got released via Rivertown Records. Three of those tracks will be on the new 7" which will be housed in picture sleeve signed by the artist - if you reserve your copy quickly at F5 Records. As a bonus the 7" will deliver bonus beats of "Pick Up The Crossfader".

Redefinition: RDF-084 ft. Damu The Fudgemunk

Damu The Fudgemunk's debut solo album “Spare Time” and it's companion EP “Overtime” are finally available for the first time on vinyl. Both in 2008 recorded releases were previously available in digital form only and are now packaged together under the name "Full Time”.

Spare Time and Overtime etched Damu The Fudgmunk as one of the most promising beat makers of the 2000's. This was also the beginning of his long standing partnership with Jnota, as they started to grow the label, Redefinition Records. 

In 2013, an updated yet consolidated version known as "Spare Overtime Re-Inspired" was released as a single 12” LP, but in order to make that possible, Damu and Redef had to make some executive edits to final product due to time constraints, so a handful of tracks were left off, including some fan favorites. "Full Time" preserves what was cut, and then some. S

All the tracks mastered from their original recordings. This special 2LP edition + bonus 7" is limited to 500 copies and are now available for preorder directly from the label or at HHV.
