SPIRIT MAN (LP)
12" Vinyl lp US 30.10.17
during the 1970s, innovative musicians redefined the sound of jazz, funk, and soul music, digging deeper than ever before to unearth powerful new sonic textures. one such pioneer was keyboardist weldon irvine, a jazz-funk luminary who released some of the most revered recordings of the era. irvine’s 1975 album “spirit man” is a true masterpiece, full of infectious grooves and otherworldly electronic elements. entirely composed, arranged, conducted, and produced by irvine himself, the album remains a potent artistic statement, both deeply spiritual and intensely funky. crate diggers may recognize the opening track “we gettin’ down”, which was sampled by a tribe called quest for their classic single “award tour”. now, “spirit man” is back in print on limited-edition vinyl, complete with updated artwork. order this official deluxe reissue now!

THE NITE-LITERS (LTD COLOURED LP)
12" Vinyl lp US 27.12.16
limited edition of 1000 copies on translucent, multi-color splattered vinyl.
experienced crate diggers are no doubt familiar with new birth, the 17-piece funk ensemble sampled on classic hip-hop records by wu-tang clan, de la soul, junior m.a.f.i.a., black sheep, lil wayne, ice cube, and many more. the genesis of new birth can be traced back to the nite-liters, a louisville-based instrumental outfit. founded in 1963 by motown songwriter/producer harvey fuqua and saxophonist tony churchill, the nite-liters released a handful of albums in the early 70s, scoring a few minor hits and perfecting the sound that would power new birth to further success as the decade progressed. while much of the the nite liters’ early material has been overlooked, their self-titled debut album is worth revisiting. originally released on rca records in 1970, the nite liters is a raw, soulful masterpiece that has been sampled by kmd, ghostface killah and others.

FAITH IS THE KEY (LP + 7 INCH)
12" Vinyl lp + 7" Vinyl US 06.03.17
after more than three decades as a lost classic, the debut album by washington dc soul/gospel outft enlightment is finally receiving a proper release. founded by ordained bishop larry h. jordan and his brother-in-law frank tinsley in the early 1980s, enlightment was among the first groups to fuse modern r&b production with gospel themes. unfortunately, the independent release of their 1984 debut album “faith is the key” was torpedoed when both their distributor and pressing plant went out of business. “we knew we were getting airplay across the country, but we couldn’t get the product in the stores at the time”, explains tinsley of the missed opportunity. only a handful of “faith is the key” lps ever made it into the public’s hands.
as a result, the record became a holy grail for collectors. it was rediscovered around the year 2000, when copies started selling online for over $2000. while disappointed in the record’s lack of immediate impact, the group’s founders are not surprised by its recent revival. “it’s just good music with a spiritual message, that’s why it stood the test of time,” says tinsley. “we made sure we had very crystal clear production,” adds jordan. “we knew we had a gospel beat, but we wanted to be dynamic and innovate.” thanks to an official vinyl rerelease via nature sounds with worldwide distribution, listeners can now experience that innovation first-hand.
limited edition deluxe reissue, fully remastered audio on 12 inch vinyl lp plus bonus 7 inch with 2 rare instrumentals, all housed in a gatefold sleeve.
