Coalmine: CM010 ft. C.L. Smooth

I am no big fan of Record Store Day (RSD) and the undue mass of needless and overpriced represses that delay planned vinyl releases of smaller indie labels.  Anyway every year I found at least 1 release that I decided to buy and make the best out of it. In 2016 it will be ...

Coalmine Records releases an RSD exclusive version of “Perfect Timing” by C.L. Smooth on limited edition blue vinyl. The track was originally released in 2008.

“I’m here to hit ‘em with that sure-to-be-a-classic” C.L. rhymes over a beat by Australian producer M-Phazes and gets support by Brooklyn based MC Skyzoo.

The artwork of the picture sleeve was crafted by Frank “DJ Concept” DeMaria. On the cover, you have a piece that call to mind CL Smooth & Pete Rock’s classic Mecca And The Soul Brother, while the donuts pay homage to the old-school Elektra Records layout.

Order: or your trusted store. 

My special thanks goes to Coalmine Records, C.L. Smooth, Skyzoo and M-Phazes. All copyrights reserved, posted for promotion use only. 

Also watch out for the forthcoming album "Seventy Nine" by Planet Asia & DJ Concept and their earlier discography

Don't Bite: DBRLTDED006 ft. Jumpsteady

IIn 2015 Don't Bite! Records took a break without the release of vinyl but early March '16 the label continues. And even if the release of Tom Dice's full-length album is highly expected one, the label first of all drops another 2 tracker on 7" vinyl.

After Jumpsteady's tour de force feature on Tom Dice's falling off (previously available on Don't Bite Records), he returns with a lyrical workout. An extended metaphor on slippery reptilian foes, he pulls no punches in this characteristic onslaught, consistent since his debut feature on 'Crack the Mike' by Dynametrix in 1994.

The last 7 inch sold out in no time so if you are interested place your order immediately. There are only be 150 copies pressed up worldwide.

A: Snakes ft. Jumpsteady
B: Snakes Instrumental

Produced by Tom Dice

Order & Listen: (now)

Chopped Herring: CHGODDON02 ft. Godfather Don

A3: Arch Enemies
B1: Homicide (Remix)
B2: Freaky Flow

The "Final Unreleased EP Vol. 2" is limited to 350 copies - the first 75 copies come on gold, clear and red mixed coloured vinyl, the next 75 are on white, clear green, solid blue coloured vinyl - the remaining 200 are on traditional black wax.
