yet another highly in-demand 12inch from the philadelphia international stable and an artist who s records never go out of date! this is a killer double-sided beauty with the frenetic and jazzy life on mars from his debut 1976 album on the top-side and the mellow all-time classic and soul boy anthem the sweetest pain from 1979 on the flip. two very different sides of a great artist, both of which show the level of diversity that he was capable of producing. the last legitimate release of this was back 1999 and a mint copy will currently set you back circa £50, if you can ever find one. word of warning: there are some u.s. bootlegs from 2008 that still appear to be in circulation and which are easy to spot since they use the u.s. silver p.i.r. label. we are currently getting these taken down and hopefully they ll soon be removed from the marketplace. accept no substitute! all our 12inch re-issues are licensed from the copyright owners and legally covered. no time for fakes over here!

suff daddy gehört mit dexter, brenk sinatra, flako und twit one zur sperrspitze der neuen deutschen beatproduzenten-szene. auf seinem neuen album bleibt der berliner produzent seinem image vom sympathischen suffkopf mit den dopen beats treu. auch deshalb, weil es kein image ist. suff daddy liebt seinen gin, sein gras und seinen microkorg. in der beziehung ist auf suff sells alles beim alten. die samples knistern, der korg twisted und dein lieblingsrapper wird ins säurebad getaucht. die kids lieben diesen scheiss und niemand kann das besser als suff daddy. wie immer ist miles bonny mit seinem lumberjack soul dabei, fleur earth hat einen stein im brett und durchreisende us mcs wie elhzi, phat kat und vertual vertigo werfen 16er ein. beat-kollabos mit twit one und hulk hodn sind die olive im martini. trotzdem ist suff sells anders. breiter und größer.straighter und verspulter. rekordverdächtige 29 tracks verteilen sich auf vier lp-seiten.
