Harlem River Drive
Harlem River Drive

Critically unsuccessful and overlooked upon release in 1971, Harlem River Drive’s self-titled debut - also Eddie Palmieri’s first time as a bandleader - nonetheless retains its cult value as ...view item »

Nas
Illmatic

Illmatic was the debut album from New York rapper, Nas. Upon its original release in 1994, when Nas was just 20 years old, East Coast hip-hop was losing its identity. Illmatic, with tracks like N.Y. State Of Mind, gave the genre’s birthplace a much needed shot in the arm....view item »

Loose Joints
Is It All Over My Face

The thing you really need to know about this Loose Joints single, Is It All Over My Face, is that the man behind it is the one and only Arthur Russell. This is the first time it’s been available to buy as a 7” single. It dates from the early ‘80s when disco had died and dance music was free of ...view item »

Lee Scratch Perry & The Upsetters
Cloak and Dagger

Classic dub LP alert! Lee 'Scratch' Perry sees his 1973 Jamaican original 'Cloak And Dagger' re-issued as originally intended, all artwork present and correct. Widely considered as hallmark Perry, the LP was recorded at his freshly established Black Ark studio in a very fertile period of creativity. Perry brought his ho...view item »

Joe Mansfield & 7L & Esoteric
The Drumulator

Joe Mansfield’s ‘Beat Box: A Drum Machine Obsession’ coffee table book is a tasteful little affair that once perused will give you ultimate drum machine jealousy. I wish I hadn’t bought the damn thing as now I spend all my time scouring ebay for rhythm boxes and primitive drum machines. One such machine I’ve...view item »

Tha Alkaholiks
21 & Over

Tha Alkoholiks’ 1993 debut 21 & Over turns 25 this August, and here’s the celebratory repress by Get On Down. There’s something irresistible about this era of scratchtastic, funky party-beat hip-hop, and these passionate alcoholic beverage enthusiasts in particular, along with collaborators such as...view item »

Mobb Deep
Hell On Earth

Solidifying the sound of hardcore, east coast hip hop, Mobb Deep’s ‘Hell on Earth’ is back on vinyl where it belongs. Get on Down Records have repressed this archetypal N.Y. street rap record. Economical beats made from three note basslines, taut snares and 8-bar piano loops, dense verses and classic guest spot...view item »

Prodigy
H.N.I.C.

Recommended to Mobb Deep fans or people who like what classics have came from QB in the past. Just about all the cuts are mostly uptown grimy normal Queensbrigde cuts. There are some tracks I didn't like that much - like "Rock Dat Sh**" which uses elements from the Mobb Deep hit back in 1999 "Quiet Storm (remix)" to make the hook. Overall Prodig...view item »

Ghostface Killah
Ironman

Ghostface's debut record, Ironman, came in the Wu-Tang's golden era, following on from Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and the unmoveable chess-rap classic, Liquid Swords. Like his buddies Rae and the GZA, Ghostface's wicked fast,...view item »

Raekwon
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx

Rae's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is an early Wu-Tang solo classic, responsible for sequels and known for classic sampling from the RZA in primetime. This is one of the Wu's most intricately told stories, a record about drugs in New York told through some of the best hooks with some of t...view item »

Dead Prez
Let's Get Free

Yes yes yes, the hard and heavy 2000 debut from political hip-hop crew Dead Prez reissued on Get Down. Let’s Get Free speaks on Black Nationalism and murderous white racism, backed with thick and chunky analogue basslines. There is even a sighting of a young Kanye West, whose remix of ‘It&rs...view item »

Dinosaur L
In The Corn Belt

A key Arthur Russell track from the album 24→24 Music, mixed by Larry Levan, and split over two sides of a 7”. Funky layers of percussion, disco drums, exploratory bass, psych guitar, arch quasi-operatic vox and spacey keyboards that seem to connect a lineage from Herbie Hancock to ...view item »

Dinosaur L
Go Bang!

‘I wanna see all my friends at once’ goes the refrain of this classic slice of Arthur Russell-helmed (for it is he) weirdo-disco. Straight from the heart of '80s New York, Russell’s Dinosaur L project was a compelling mixture of the disco and experimental scenes of the time, as...view item »

Pete Rock & CL Smooth
The Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) / Straighten It Out

“They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” is a canonical hip-hop classic, so if you’re new to this, welcome to ‘90s hip-hop, and if you’re not, then welcome back. A tribute to the late Trouble T Roy of Heavy D & The Boyz, the cut became Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s biggest hit and a clear stand-...view item »

Wu-Tang Clan
Clan In Da Front / Wu-Tang: 7th Chamber

Get On Down are reissuing the entirety of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in 7” form. Here are tracks three and four. Clan in the Front is essentially a GZA / RZA showcase. Wu-Tang: 7th Chamber features a chaotic full house consisting of Raekwon, Method Man, Ghostf...view item »

Wu-Tang Clan
Bring Da Ruckus / Shame On A Nigga

As the Wu-Tang release their seventh album The Saga Continues, Boston reissue label Get On Down are dropping every track from the classic debut Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) on a series of seven-inches. In other cases this might seem like a gimmicky or excessive move, but with a record as deathless as this, why the hell not? C...view item »

Group Home
Livin' Proof

Operating in the orbit of Gang Starr during the 90’s boom-bap heyday were Group Home, the MC duo of Lil Dap and Melachi The Nutcracker. Livin’ Proof, which was produced by DJ Premier, is their debut full-length, and it still hits plenty hard...view item »

Howlin' Wolf
The Howlin' Wolf Album

A real marmite of a record. I played it to my parents and they were convinced it wasn't the Wolf. They both hated it, most people I have talked to about it do. Made in 1969, someone in chess records noticed psychedelic music was selling so made howlin wolf reimagine some of his classics. He hated it, as referenced in the cover. The sun s...view item »

Clipse
Til The Casket Drops

Legendary rap duo Clipse get Til The Casket Drops on vinyl for the first time ever. The third in their iconic album series that stretched from the exuberant Lord Willin' into the stone-cold classic Hell Hath No Fury, this Neptunes-produced g...view item »

Genius / GZA
Liquid Swords

Enduring rap classic and many a person's odds-on favourite for best Wu-Tang solo record, it is called Liquid Swords and it's by GZA/Genius. Known as a continuation on the grainy, filmic sequences of 36 Chambers, this record continued to switch dialogue and snarling snare beats for GZA to imp...view item »

Run-DMC
Raising Hell

Reissue of Run-DMC’s classic album Raising Hell from 1986. Includes huge classic tracks It’s Tricky, You Be Illin’ and Walk This Way, but the whole album is a stone cold killer and is a key player in breaking hip hop into the mainstream. Co-Produced by the legendary R...view item »

Wu-Tang Clan
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (Deluxe 7inch Casebook)

Presented as a 7” box set for the first time ever is the Wu Tang Clan’s classic debut. It’s a beautiful thing spreading the tracks over six 7” records and including 56 page book with interviews and lyrics etc. Wonderful for Wu Tang obsessives but just imagine how many times you are going to hav...view item »

Dr. Octagon
Dr. Octagonecologyst

Kool Keith’s filth extraterrestrial character Dr. Octagon is notorious to say the least. Having reunited with Dan The Automator and Q-Bert to celebrate the 21 year anniversary of the release of Dr. Octagon know he has teamed up with Get On Down to present this del...view item »

Run-DMC
Tougher Than Leather

The fourth album by Run-DMC gets a nice new re-pressing for 2017. Tougher Than Leather, first released in 1988, has a couple of the gang’s big tunes on it (‘Run’s House’, ‘Mary, Mary’), plus a particularly rich flurry of sampladelic turntablism from Jam-Master Jay. Vi...view item »

Ol' Dirty Bastard
Return To The 36 Chambers : The Dirty Version

Ol' Dirty Bastard may be the rawest, dirtiest member of Wu-Tang, but his self-titled album may be the most offbeat of all the albums. There are plenty of dirty lyrics to spare, such as ODB's vivid description of oral sex in "Don't You Know" and a bloody rap in "Raw Hide". But his rawness is so genuine, with anger at society and a need for dirty ...view item »

Arthur Russell / Dinosaur L
The Definitive Sleeping Bag Recordings

Christmas has come a little early for Arthur Russell enthusiasts with this dazzling deluxe 4LP set in a hand silk-screened box printed in red and metallic silver inks. The set expands 1981's '24-->24' album to include remixes and rare versions, while the third and fourth discs collect addit...view item »

Run-DMC
Run-DMC

Run-DMC’s self-titled debut album is a no-messing hip-hop classic. Released in 1984, there is not an inch of fat on this record, just sparse and direct drum machine beats and bold Queens flows, plus subtle scratching and sampling from Jam Master Jay. Need we say more? Reissued on vinyl by the Get On Down l...view item »

Ghostface Killah
Bulletproof Wallets

Ghostface Killah’s 2001 solo statement is a pretty crucial part of the wider Wu-Tang puzzle, as well as a damn good time in its own right. RZA and The Alchemist deal with much of the production, and MC guests include Slick Rick and Raekwon...view item »

Mantronix
Bassline

Back we go to way-back-when: the 1980’s, when early hip-hop was coming in to it’s own. Mantronix may not have picked up the same mainstream renown as Run-DMC and the likes, but his Bassline single is a track that more than stands up today. So here we have it, reissued on blue vinyl by Get On...view item »

KMD
Bl_ck B_st_rds

This album is a true gem and it is filled with so much funk and soul it's amazing. KMD have definitely got a style of their own. The record manages to be challenging, inventive and deep without ever sounding too arty, weird or inaccessible. What you hear on most of the tracks is fresh jazz sampled production with bouncing beats that are guarante...view item »

Liquid Swords Instrumentals

I won’t bang on about this for long as we’re all familiar with GZAs masterpiece ‘Liquid Swords’. Infact, it’s been reissued in a number of guises over the past couple of years including a version with a chess board! They’re rinsing it for all it’s worth and who can blame ‘em afterall, it’s un...view item »

Boogie Down Productions
Criminal Minded

In listing the greatest albums in hip-hop history, one title never seems to stray from the upper echelons, no matter how many years pass: Boogie Down Productions’ undisputed classic from 1986, Criminal Minded. Released amidst a battle between BDP and MC Shan that would redefine the New York rap landscape as it was then kno...view item »

Bell Biv Devoe
Poison

Bell Biv Devoe are a spin-off of late '70s boy band progenitors New Edition. Combining late '80s R&B with classic hip-hop styles, the band pioneered one of the most popular sounds of the '80s with the single Poison quickly reaching the top of the charts and subsequently becoming the cult classic it is today.

Lee Scratch Perry
Super Ape

Here's a classic. Lee 'Scratch' Perry, a man with fingers in many reggae, dub style pies so I believe. I think he was the producer on the very famous 'The Heart of The Congos' by The Congos and he has been crafting quality dub and reggae ever since. He's still knocking about too, a friend of mine saw him at a festival a few years back, apparentl...view item »

Skull Snaps
Skull Snaps

Despite what the cover may lead you to believe, Skull Snaps were a soul/funk act. The band were an enigma, no one knew who they were and this self-titled LP was their only one. What you’d probably like to know is that it contains the track It’s A New Day, the drum intro of which has been sampled by DJ Shadow...view item »
