Mister Good Times

Norman Jay MBE is no less than a UK DJ icon. A first generation Black Briton born into a Notting Hill-based Caribbean family, Norman first came to wider attention via London’s mid-‘80s Rare Groove scene, underpinned by his ‘Original Rare Groove Show’ on the city’s then pirate dance music station Kiss FM, having initially set out his stall via annual appearances at the Notting Hill Carnival, where his brother, Joey, re-branded his Great Tribulation Reggae sound system to the Funk / Disco / Soul-geared Good Times Roadshow.

Trevor Jackson Selects Island

Island Records Collage

Trevor Jackson is something of a cultural maven whose thirty-plus years in the more underground corridors of the music industry has seen him fulfil a number of catalytic roles – starting off as a graphic designer at Champion Records in the late-‘80s, responsible for the S-Express ‘Theme From S-Express’ and Raze ‘Break 4 Love’ sleeves, amongst many other subsequently.

Substance Select

Substance Select

After having to put the Super Weird Substance label on the backburner for a while (although we were still very much active with last year’s ’14 Hour Super Weird Happening’ and the ‘Alan Moore’s Mandrill Meets Super Weird Substance At The Arts Lab Apocalypse in Liverpool’, we are now in the process of recalibration – the first step being this limited-run 12”, featuring 2 tracks previously released on the label that sold out of existing vinyl supplies, with a demand building since, plus 2 more never previously available on vinyl. The record can be ordered here:

Credit To The Edit Vol.3

Credit To The Edit Vol.3

It’s always a buzz when a project comes to fruition, so today’s release of Credit To The Edit Vol 3, something I’ve looked forward to since we set the ball rolling around a year ago, seems perfectly timed with the much-needed rush of sunshine we’re experiencing after an extended period of shivering. Feels like the Spring has finally arrived, right on cue, and hopefully this will provide part of the season’s soundtrack for you.

Credit To The Edit @ Sound City

Credit To The Edit

My latest Credit To The Edit compilation, volume 3 in the series, is issued next month – I’ll do a full post about the album and its contents once available, but, in the meantime, wanted to draw attention to the first in a number of Credit To The Edit parties I’ll be hosting, both in the UK and overseas, throughout 2018.
