One of the things i miss most from London would be my regular trip to Honest Jon's in Ladbroke Grove where I'd come away with far too many awesome records for my skinny arms to easily carry so it's very welcome to see from the other side of the world the shop and its labels going from strength to strength.
Not only have they released two of the greatest new records this year in T++'s sampling of old East African 78s on Wireless and Actress' brain melting loops on Splazsh, but their nascent Dug Out reissue label has given us everything from the trippy reggae-psychedlia of Dadawah to RnB inflected Dancehall of Foxy Brown.
Check out an old unmastered version of Dadawah's Seventy Two Nations below, then go a get the new undoubtedly better, new version too.
