MARRSPump Up The Volume (long, bonus beat, inst)/Anitina ... 12-inch
4th & Broadway, 1987. Very Good- (pic cover)... $1.99
An offshoot of the 4AD rock scene from the UK, this number sampled Rakim from "Paid In Full" to great effect – and it made quite a bit of sense that the track was issued on 4th & Broadway in the US (probably also a legal move, so that the label wouldn't sue 4AD for copping a sample from one of their artists! The record features a bit of scratching by CJ Mackintosh, with a bubbly beat that made it huge on both sides of the Atlantic. 12-inch, Vinyl record

The single off his full length LP "The Unseen" with two previously unreleased tracks, "BS" and "Dinosaur Brain Beat."

Capitol, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"On The Beat" is one of the greatest dancefloor tracks from the 80s – a solid sender with a blend of funk and disco, made even better with a great hook, and a classic sound that never gets old! The cut's a crossover classic from years back, and you get it here in two versions! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Streetwise, 1984. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite tunes from the old school – a beautiful blend of vocoder vocals, sinister keyboards, and some cool splashy beats! This one ties it all together – the sound of the streets, the experiments of the import scene, and the changing energy in the clubs – all with a perfect blend of moods, and that wicked "D-d-d-d-d-d-ominatrix" chant! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lady BTo The Beat Y'all (2 sided single) ... 12-inch
TEC, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little single on TEC – and a unique record that seems to cross east coast hip hop with GoGo percussion! Lady B's not the greatest MC in the world, but the record's got some excellent backing that features funky guitar over hard-riffing percussion – hitting in that flat, repetitive mode that marked the best DC GoGo at the time. A nice party track, with plenty of calls and beats! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tartown/Get On Down, 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
The amazing, and previously impossible to find bedrock hip hop single by Rammelzee & K-Rob – produced by artist Jean Michel Basquiat! Originally released in 1983, the deep, laid-back production and vocals were YEARS ahead of what anyone else was doing at that time. This reissue features the original 10+ minute version backed by the instrumental – with the iconic white-on-black Basquiat drawings on the front and back. A genuinely trailblazing 12-inch that's as fresh as ever! 12-inch, Vinyl record

This massive package really pushes past the original single – to offer up unreleased tracks "Play It Safe" and "The City That Never Sleeps" – plus all the original "Dominatrix" mixes, and a bonus 32 page booklet with lots of liner notes, reivews, interviews, and rare material from the band – even photos by Richard Kern! 12-inch, Vinyl record

To us, there's too few tracks about graffitti writing but Complany Flow make up for the deficit with "End To End Burners." With a nice sepia-tone front and back cover by the legendary Phase 2 that compliments the dense, abstract, on-beat/off-beat Co Flo sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Marc DavisMechanical Melody/Trust In Me ... 12-inch
Black Pegasus, 2006. New Copy ... $5.99
The first release on Marc Davis's own Black Pegasus, and a timeless bit of funk steeped house! Written, produced and by the man himself, "Mechanical Melody" holds a steady funky club beat with some mood setting bits of vocal – from strident spoken word to soulful back up singing. Strong Stuff! The flip "Trust In Me" is another impressive cut, on a spacier tip – again with a persistent beat and steadily building atmosphere. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Leaving/Duppy Gun, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99
Genre defiant post modern dancehall from Duppy Gun Productions – the project spearheaded by Sun Araw and M. Geddes Gengras – collaborating with different adventurous Jamaican players after their initial, much acclaimed earlier collab with The Congos! "Press Bookfa Press" pairs vocalist Bookfa with a terse rhythm by Nice-A-Bunks (aka Peaking Lights). Also includes a nice long dub: "Press Bookfa Press (Dupp'd Version)", "Girl's Dem Need Mi" has a more tripped out, splintered beat style and more synth in the mix – and it also includes a nicely elongated dub version. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Kid Creole & The CoconutsStool Pigeon (rmx)/Annie I'm Not Your Daddy/I'm Corrupt ... 12-inch
Sire, 1982. Very Good (pic cover)... $9.99
One of Kid Creole's greatest – a track that bounces along with a mad bassline, grooving in a campy 20's sort of way, but with this old school beat that really makes the cut kick. "Annie" and "Corrupt" are both great groovers too – more proof that August Darnell's a genuis that bears major rediscovery! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Unlimited Gold, 1979. Very Good ... $39.99
An excellent groover from Love Unlimited – proof that neither they, nor Barry White, had lost their touch! The tune's got a snapping bassline that really grooves the track right away – pulling in some soaring strings, but still keeping up the beat as the vocals come in. The instrumental still has a bit of chorus vocals, but seems to add in a bit of piano to fill things out! 12-inch, Vinyl record

RCA (Canada), 1977. Very Good ... $6.99
A slinky bit of Euro disco from the 70s – one that has Patrick Norman singing lead vocals on the main side, but which sound even better on the flip – as the instrumental mix really lets the tune's nicely compressed grooves step out nicely, and features some nice piano tinkling along with the beat! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Paisley Park, 1987. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $14.99
Sure, the politics seem a bit silly now – but the track's still one of Prince's last really compelling hits. It's got a totally infectious hook, a spare Timmy Thomas-ish beat, and a strangely captivating vocal that really sticks with us. The flip's a bit silly – a 10 minute extended number with a silly jam kind of feel. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Beat tracks produced by Eric Walker, programmed by the IAR Boys (Reggie Reppe, Steven Clarke and Eric Walker) and mixed by IGNP SIMPTE. 7 tracks of stripped down drum machine grooves, very house-y, with a few little synth bits thrown in, a nice DJ mixing tool with BPMs in the 124-130 range: "Spearchucker", "Basic Body Movement", "High Tech Groove", "High Tech Groove (reprise)", "South Bronx Burnout", "Tony's Outburst" and "Tribal Warfare". 12-inch, Vinyl record

UrbanicityWorld Music/Everything ... 12-inch
Urbanicity, 2001. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Groundbreaking work from the Chicago underground – 2 very righteous sides, linked in a tradition that stretches back 50 years! The single is part of Urbanicity's experiments in musical spoken word recordings – and both sides feature a blend of poetry and jazz that's sprinkled with elements of 70s Afro-centric underground sides, 50s beat expressionism, and more recent NuSoul recordings. Side one features very tribal beats underneath Reggie Gibson's "World Music" – and side two picks things up with some sweet beats and electric piano, as Dwayne Morgan lays out his feelings on "Everything"! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Mayer HawthorneJust Ain't Gonna Work Out/When I Said Goodbye (limited edition heart-shaped 10 inch on red vinyl) ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2008. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A gritty, groovy bedroom soul single from Mayer Hawthorne – his debut for Stones Throw! "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out" is a timeless funky soul jam that feels like a lost, late 60s Detroit indie soul single on the vocal tip – but done over a minimalist funk beat that feels like something from the Cold Chillin playbook! Hawthorne sings both lead and harmony vocals on this sweet natured break up tune – doing it all himself, for kind of a one man group soul sound. Where the A-side nods a bit to golden age of hip hop with the breakbeat production aesthetic, "When I Said Goodbye" feels a bit more like and old school midtempo soul jam – with a tasty little bit of guitar in the mix, again a funky low fi production that's totally endearing. Sweet and flavorful – here's hoping a full length is in the works! 12-inch, Vinyl record

MCA, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two of the better cut off the second LP. Both the production and rhymes "Breaker, Breaker" reminds us of the hits from the old Wu-glory days. "Publicity" follows the same idea as "Labels" off the last LP, except this time the topic is magazines instead of record labels, from Beat Down to Vibe, the Source to Gavin. Though for some reason GZA isn't as hard on the magazines as he was on the labels. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ OdysseyInside Out/Love's Alright ... 12-inch
RCA, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet sweet groove from Odyssey – tripping along in a snapping 80s beat supported by some "wheeet" keyboard work! The hook is very tasty – sung along by the group with a really nice little swing that makes the tune more playfully soulful than you'd guess at first! "Love's Alright" is great too – a stepping little groover with a warm bubbling groove that never lets you go! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Featuring vocals from Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Mr. Lif and cuts by DMC champ DJ Craze, this track has a much straighter beat than some of the more abstract electronics you might expect from Push Button. Plus the b-side "Breaker's Delight" a squishy electro track, ripe for your breaking pleasure. 12-inch, Vinyl record
