Bokanté + Metropole Orkest, together. Two internationally acclaimed outfits made up of players at the top of their games. Music doesn’t get any hotter, or more accomplished, than this. Bokanté: the fresh new super group founded by musician and composer Michael League, he of Grammy-winning, Texan-bred, New York-based instrumental jazz collective, Snarky Puppy. A super group of players from five countries and four continents, different genders, races and generations working in harmony, celebrating individuality. This is a double LP pressed on red vinyl exclusively for our members.
PLANXTY: BETWEEN THE JIGS AND REELS: A RETROSPECTIVE
Very excited to announce another exclusive colour pressing for our members: A double LP by Planxty: Between the Jigs and the Reels: A Retrospective on grey vinyl. “Between the Jigs and the Reels is a lesson in evolutionary musical biology, with Christy Moore still feeling out his own voice on the early recording of Follow Me Up to Carlow. The incantatory rhythms of Dónal Lunny’s bouzouki and the delicately picked melody lines of Irvine’s mandolin are equally breathtaking” Irish Times
Dublin based, hip-hop artist Jafaris received critical praise for his debut album STRIDE, which earned him his place as one of Ireland’s foremost players of the new generation of the Irish hip-hop. Jafaris musical calling came a little later than most. Before the dazzling lyricism and poetic resonance, he brought to the emerging Irish music scene, dance had always been his passion and career path. “One of the most exciting new prospects from rap’s recent rising wave” - NME. “Stride is a unique triumph”-The Irish Times. Jafaris has kindly offered to sign each copy for the members who select this as their October choice.
