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. Bulletproof Wallets is reissued to double vinyl by Get On Down.

Genius / GZA
Liquid Swords (The Instrumentals)

Liquid Swords, the second solo album from the oldest member of Wu Tang Clan, Genius / GZA is widely regarded as one of the best hip-hop albums ever committed to tape. The lyrics were concerned with crime, philosophy and...er...chess. Here we concentrate on what backed up that smooth flow of sharp words with Liquid Swords (The Instrumentals). It was produced by fellow Wu Tang Clan rapper and producer, RZA, who creates the perfect soundscape for the lyrics.

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’s Bigger Than Hip-Hop’ turns up on the fourth side of this 2LP.

Miles Davis
Miles In Tokyo: Miles Davis Live In Concert

Only five out of ten for the non Miles pun album title but otherwise this is a luxury issue of a cracking Miles Davis set from his first ever Japanese tour in 1964. It's the only document of Miles Davis and Sam Rivers blowing together and there's further stellar support in Herbie Hancock (piano), Ron Carter  (double bass), and Tony Williams (drums).

Clipse
Lord Willin'

Virginia brothers Gene and Terrence Thornton form rap duo Clipse. You may know them better individually as No Malice and Pusha T. They signed to Star Trak, the label owned by The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo). Lord Willin’ was their - now classic - debut album, originally released in 2002. They brought some serious Virginia game to the rap world. The album was also produced by The Neptunes.

Nas
Stillmatic

'Stillmatic' was the fifth album by rapper and ex-husband of Kelis, Nas. It was originally released in 2001. Unlike his previous Gangsta Rap output, 'Stillmatic' finds him in a philosophical mood - rapping about ghetto life and his bust-up with former pal Jay-Z. The album, a sequel to his 1994 debut Illmatic, was regarded as a return to form.

Herbie Hancock
Directstep

Jazz-fusion classic Directstep by the legendary Herbie Hancock was originally only released in Japan in 1979 and has been out of print for the best part of 40 years. So, unless you were lucky / wealthy / old enough to bag yourself an expensive Japanese import back in the day, you’ll be wanting this reissue. Includes reworked versions of Butterfly and I Thought It Was You along with new track Shiftless Shuffle.

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 spots make it one of the most influential records of the 1990s.

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

Ol' Dirty has got even dirtier with this remastered version of his 1996 debut 36 Chambers. His first foray outside the bosom of Wu-Tang Clan, it was a stunning tour de force of entertainingly gritty hip-hop showcasing his unusual sea-sick and off kilter flow on tracks that ranged from terrifying to darkly humorous. It has long been seen as one of the high points of Wu-Tang's storied history and one of the most innovative rap records to date.

David Axelrod
Seriously Deep

Seriously Deep was the only album David Axelrod recorded for Polydor in the 1970s. You may be less familiar with this than his other classics such as Songs Of Innocence, Songs of Experience and Earth Rot. However, this Jazz-rock fusion masterpiece has been plundered for samples just as often as the rest by the likes of Mobb Deep, Black Eyed Peas and Beanie Sigel.

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. Vinyl reissue on Get On Down.

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 the best singles.

Herbie Hancock
Dedication

Dedication by Herbie Hancock was recorded live in Tokyo in 1974. It is a spacious jazz/funk exploration of his exquisite keyboard skills. It was released in japan only at the time and we had to wait until 2013 to buy it on CD here. It has never been released on vinyl outside of Japan, so this special vinyl edition will be a real treat for fans.

Herbie Hancock
Flood

Flood is a double live LP by jazz/funk genius Herbie Hancock. It was recorded in Tokyo in 1975 where he was was backed by his band The Headhunters. The album features versions of tracks from his 1973 classic Head Hunters, 1974’s Thrust and also sees him previewing tracks from his, at the time, forthcoming LP, Man-child which was released toward the end of 1975. Flood has never been released on vinyl before. Limited edition 2LP set on Get On Down.

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 a poignant political statement and accomplished musical exercise. Warm, meticulous and highly funky Latin soul, with superb cover art to boot.

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 its cheesy shackles, leaving true innovators like Russell to do his thing. The Female Vocal mix by Larry Levan has been a huge influence on the Chicago house scene as its DJs have sampled the drums time and again. 7” on Get On Down.

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 house band, The Upsetters along and became the true master of lo-fi innovation, using a four-track with phasers, delays and anything at his disposal as an instrument. A slice of history arrives from the Get On Down label.

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 Drexciya. So much going on that it should feel cluttered, but remains strikingly spacious and airy. When it shudders to a halt it feels like a spell being broken.

  • Get On Down

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 evinced by this banger (geddit?).

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, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Inspectah Deck, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, RZA and GZA. If you want this you probably know the songs and vice versa!

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 goodness sees Pusha and Malice curate a mini who's-who of noughties hip-hop -- with features from a post-808s Kanye, Cam'ron and a self-congratulating Neptune Pharrell, among others.

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 deliciously deviant dish. Almost 10 tracks on top of the album (5 unreleased) across 3 vinyls housed in an octagonal box with book, a load of pictures and interviews. The glove snaps.

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 label.
