CRYING / DUB (7 INCH)
7" Vinyl UK Pre sale (20.10.2017)
unleashing his debut release, preacha steps out on nice up! with an instant classic. channeling some deep 80s dancehall vibes, the production is a sweet marriage of old & new - referencing the classic digital drum machines of the past whilst keeping the vibes modern and fresh. vocals are delivered courtesy of jay spaker, a veteran brooklyn mic man and singer, who holds the vibe perfectly. already hot on soundsystems such as reggae roast, mungoÕs hifi and dub stuy, this track should be getting constant rotation on a sound near you soon!

SESSION CORK EP
12" Vinyl UK 13.09.18
bristol’s finest reggae producer meets doncaster’s number one dancehall mc as mr benn & parly b join forces for an ep chock full of vibes. first up -gwarn go bathe- is a cautionary tale of lacking personal hygene in the dance underpinned by a bubbling dancehall riddim. -heat up- is much of the same as things get hotter, whilst -session cork- slows things down a little with some more laid back vibes. despite working on various remixes together, this is the first time mr benn and parly b have worked in a combination - hopefully the first of many more to come!

THEY WANNA KNOW / DANCEHALL DUB (7 INCH)
7" Vinyl UK 06.07.17
london’s ghost writerz are back with a banger! following a slew of releases on tru thoughts and a recent mixtape -welcome to ghost town- heating up the streets, jimmy screech and sleepy time ghost return with a big splash on nice up! records. based around a familiar reggae riddim, the track tells the tale of jimmy’s foundation in soundsystem culture, starting in the 80s and name-checking legends such as shabba ranks, yellowman, smiley culture along the way. as the riddim flips we shift forward a generation, 90s dancehall and rap dominate, giving props to hip hop royalty such as busta rhymes and 2pac, then finally firing off a huge jungle climax, dripping in enough amen breaks to set the dancefloor alight whilst giving a little history of the musical heritage behind ghost writerz.

KYPOLI (MORESOUNDS & THOMAS WHITE REMIXES)(10 INCH)
10" Vinyl UK 18.11.16
taken from the acclaimed -migration- album, -kypoli- sees poirier sharing production duties with fellow ninja tune alumni and hot property machinedrum. taking vocal samples from aleisha lee (co-writer of tinie tempah s recent smash -girls like- amongst others) and twisting, chopping and manipulating them into a completely new composition, the pair create a brooding post-dancehall/soul fusion, gaining the perfect balance between ethereal beauty and heavy dancefloor menace. bukem-esque pads and deep dub elegance give way to pounding kicks and floating harmonies, relentlessly building a wall of sonic beauty. remixes come from france s dub mad scientist moresounds, who ups the jungle influence with a classic reese-style bassline and signature rolling snare chops, whilst retaining the balance between dark & light and montreal-based newcomer thomas white who flips the vibe completely for a slo-mo soulection style builder.

HOLD DEM (COMPA REMIX) (LTD 10 INCH)
10" Vinyl UK 06.10.16
already a huge track in the reggae scene, due in no small part to a show-stealing vocal from gappy ranks, blend mishkin & roots evolution’s “hol dem” gets a deep remix from dubstep wunderkind compa. stripping it back to a broody pulsating and sparse dub and then dropping into an all-out steppers monster for the climax, this tune has been destroying dances on dubplate for some time. limited edition hand stamped 10” vinyl.

INNA NICE UP! FASHION (2X12 INCH LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK 19.07.16
undoubtedly one of the most iconic and legendary reggae labels to come out of the uk, fashion records has a rich and deep history that reaches far beyond the world of reggae. the brainchild of john macgillivray and chris lane, two music devotees who started the dub vendor market stall in clapham junction selling imported reggae and dub vinyl during the late 70s (which later went on to spawn the hugely popular dub vendor shops), a dub cutting studio and label was set up in 1980 and started generating hits instantly, regularly topping the uk reggae charts and attracting attention further afield. soon a recording studio was built, which served as a drop-in for most of the jamaican stars passing through london at the time.

INFORMATION CRITIC
12" Vinyl UK 08.11.11
initially released back in 2004, >information critic< is a bumping rocksteady / hip hop track from leeds mc black samurai, featuring vocals by uk dancehall legends the ragga twins and daddy freddy. despite picking up radio plays at the time, it found its way into only a handful of selectors boxes, one of whom was nice up founder dj shepdog, who has re-licensed the track and commissioned new remixes for 2011. first up, everyones favourite badman benny page gives it a junglist relick, upping the tempo and dropping some classic dancehall vibes. next, fellow nice up cohort j-star delivers a moombahton-style rework, showing a new direction for this in-demand producer. finally ninja tune rockers the heavy - currently hitting it big in the usa with >how you like me now< - drop a head-nodding reggae / hip hop version to round this wax remix package off nicely.

TIGHTRIDE / BROKE & HEARTED (7 INCH)
7" Vinyl UK 29.04.11
after a summer of smashing festivals, boat parties and the occasional pint glass, the nice up! crew return with 2 brand new blends for your box. once again label boss shepdog works his magic on the mixing desk with a red hot version of a very current tighrope-walking us soul star in waiting. working it around the joyride riddim (best known for lady saws >sycamore tree< or wayne wonders >bashment girl<), this is another essential addition to any version excursion and the first mash-up we know of on this riddim. over on the flip, another us songstress gets a loved up rework on the classic truth & rights riddim, breaking hearts and melting dancefloors in the process. one for de gyal dem!

ON A DUBSTEP TIP
12" Vinyl UK 14.09.10
possibly one of the biggest tunes to step out of the nice up! camp - from new signing and dubstep star in waiting adam prescott. having received serious rotation from mistajam and ras kwame on the radio, as well as heavy support from the likes of skream, hatcha, n-type and jakes, the label wasted no time in snapping up >on a dubstep tip<, an inspired reworking of sl2s rave anthem. featuring dynamite mc reliving his rave-hood on the mic alongside jah screechy who penned the original sample source >walk & skank<, this is sure to blow the roof at any dance.
on the b-side, adam shows off his knowledge and love of reggae with updated reworks of classics from some of the most timeless voices in the genre.
