Date set for Sugar Shack’s Compendulum release

Sugar Shack Records will next month put out a compilation album called Compendulum.

The new 16-track album, available on CD and digital download, comes out on 10 June.

According to Sugar Shack the album “isn't a compilation, it's not a remix project, it's not the vision of one producer or musician, it's not old and it's not new, yet it is also in part all of those things and most importantly totally fresh and enjoyable.”


Date set for Compendulum release on Sugar Shack

The record will be available on 10 June on CD and digital download.


Date set for Midlands Roots Explosion Volume Two

Reggae Archive Records is set to release The Midlands Roots Explosion Volume Two on 20 May.

The album will be available on double vinyl in a luxurious gatefold sleeve, CD and digital download.

The first volume was released last year and saw the culmination of many years work spent tracking down artists and tapes to shine a light on one of England's greatest, yet most overlooked musical scenes.


Date set for Midlands Roots Explosion Volume One

Reggae Archive Records is shining the spotlight on some of Birmingham’s reggae acts with the release of The Midlands Roots Explosion Volume One later this summer.

The album will be released on 29 June, available on high quality double vinyl in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, on CD and as a digital download.

The new record is the first in a series of compilations that hope to showcase some of the unreleased, forgotten and barely known musical gems from what was such a vibrant scene.
