New vinyl chart with an arm full of gems from the last couple of month's plus some forthcoming must haves.
The Number 1 slot goes to the essential Amerika 7" from Kai Alce. Limited to 300 copies this is already as rare as hens teeth. Respect to the Jelly Roll Soul DJs for putting me on that!
Number 2 sees Esa dropping an afro-disco bomb straight out of Kenya on the Highlife World Series. Whilst Number 3 goes to a previous 'Dig Deep New Producer Of The Month' - it's Love Drop Edits debut 12" on Disco Deviance and you may have heard me playing B Side track The Buzz on the show... Bomb.
We have a rare re-entry at Number 4 in the guise of Maalem Mahmoud Guina, Floating Points and James Holden's forthcoming 12" on Eglo. I have heard there was a pressing issue so the release date was put back. Number 5 goes to Deetron for his slamming The Believer track. Right place, right time, this will go off.
Soul heads head straight for Number 6 for the cripplingly good Gimme A Little Action by Sam Dees on a Kent 7" reissue. The repress of Rahaan Edits vol 3 flew out of Juno in a day but now have them back in stock. Piccadilly Records have listed it with a later release date so let's hope there will be a few to go around - the first pressing is now £50 on Discogs!!
Hip Hop heads will not be disappointed by the new Slum Village Yes! LP. Harvey Sutherland is back with another winner, this time on MCDE. And we round off the Top 10 with PTA aka Pittsburgh Track Authority Edits #3 who have delivered instant winner versions of Step By Step's 'I Always Wanted To Be In A Band' and Joe Thomas's version of 'Lowdown'.
And that's just the Top 10. There are another 20 more gems to go at. Start the player or follow the links for the full Top 30.
