The Breadwinners Dubs UnlimitedSO HERE IT IS!

[click to continue…]
Check out the 15-minute preview of this superb album on the KingSpinnaRecords YouTube channel here. The album will be released on 12 December 2012 and will be available on all formats – LP, CD, MP3 and FLAC. Just to avoid any confusion this is NOT the same as the CD-R album of the same name which we are already selling on this site. The King Spinna release contains all the same tracks as the CD-R but these are brand new mixes with many new overdubs (horns, harmonica etc.), all mixed to quarter-inch analogue tape and professionally mastered by the man with “the best ears in the universe” Kevin Metcalfe at The Soundmasters, London. The CD, MP3 and FLAC issues of the album include a bonus track “Joy [Discomix]” featuring the legendary Big Youth, but due to time constraints this track does not appear on the LP. Nevertheless, the LP edition is a real treat for vinyl fans – it’s that rare beast, the Triple A “All Analogue Album”, recorded on analogue multitrack, mixed to quarter inch analogue tape and cut direct to the lathe – not a ProTool in sight!

The LP and CD issues of the album will soon be available for pre-order on our website.

More news on this release coming soon so stay tuned!

EXCLUSIVE!
BIG YOUTH MEETS THE BREADWINNERS!

by Bob Harding on 1 July 2012

We recently had the honour and the privilege of welcoming the legendary Big Youth to the Bakery studio where he voiced a couple of Breadwinners rhythms exclusively for King Spinna. He travelled up from London specifically for the session – what a gentleman! So here’s a bit of footage from the studio – the two Big Youth tunes “By The Sweat Of Your Brow” and “Joy” are not mixed in any way shape or fashion – the audio is simply a feed directly from the desk to the video camera while Big Youth was laying down his vocals. The third track “Joyful Dub” is Al doing what Al does best – live dub mixing! Enjoy.
