Massive Attack ‘Blue Lines’ Vinyl 2LP Boxset with CD + DVD

Super deluxe reissue of Massive Attack’s debut album, ‘Blue Lines’. While most are familiar with Protection, Blue Lines set it off for the Trip Hop pioneers. Though not as refined as their later output, the album features some delightful rare groove treats that recalls a simpler time in electronic music well before there was such thing as the drop and it was all about creating a vibe. I know this sounds like old man talk, but sometimes you just gotta let things breath man.

This deluxe pressing comes with 2 x 180g vinyl, CD, a DVD with 96k/24bit high resolution audio files, and finally the original Blue Lines poster.

Original Soundtrack: Garden State 10th Anniversary Edition 180g Vinyl 2LP

Dang this album really pulls the heart strings. I remember watching this in the theatre with my first serious girlfriend and thinking I wish Natalie Portman was my girlfriend…. I guess I still kind of think that, but things have changed. I’m grown now and Natalie P had a baby. The soundtrack however remains one of those things that just watermarked such a special time in life. The Shins, Nick Drake, Iron and Wine, Simon and Garfunkel…. this is no brainer for the sensitive type.

Celebrate 10 years of Garden State with this 180g 2LP pressing and go yell into a pit.

Amerigo Gazaway presents: Yasiin Gaye – The Return Vinyl 2LP

Mos Def and Marvin Gaye could have possibly worked together… I mean Hip Hop kids have dreams too right? Well though that is quite the impossible project, Amerigo Gazaway make it happen with the greatest of ease. Don’t think of this as some simple Ableton mash up work out. This is so much more. Taking classics from both artist’s catalogs the dudes rework and create entirely new compositions for each artist to play around in. I really shouldn’t have to blabber on, just do it.
