Labello Blanco and Symphony Sounds....And A remix competiton (coming soon)

Hello Everyone,

Wow things move fast! I mean, not turtles, for example, but certainly fighter jets. And sometimes, record deals.

I am of course referring to the recently signed deal for the repressing and new remixes from one of the most incredible and legendary labels the old school ever saw - the one and only Labello Blanco. This one kinda happened because of another incredible, but still secret deal I have with a proper old skool legend, so its all a bit amazing really!

So yeah, basically, Kniteforce and Labello have teamed up for a run of direct represses of some truly classic releases, including Macka Brown's Dubplate Style and Go Down Baby, Bug Kann & The Plastic Jam - Made In Two Minutes, Prizna - Fire, and many more. The deal also covers a few releases from Urban Gorilla, and allows for a few new remixes to be made alongside the remastered represses, and the release of some rediscovered tracks that never saw the light of day back then, and finally, the repressing of some rare and long sought after EPs.



And even more exciting, we are going to do a remix competition for a Labello track. We havent done one of those for a while, but stay tuned to the blog and once we have the right tune and sample pack together, we will do that with the prize being a vinyl release! Whoop!

All in all, this is a pretty exciting deal, and we are starting work immediately with the first few repress EPs going to cut in the very near future.

So thats is exciting.

And that is not all.

I recently made a Facebook post concerning the much sought after PA mix of Pennywise. We have managed to restore a version of it to the point where it sounds excellent, and once that was sorted, a deal was signed for the repress of the PA Mix and Clown mix of Pennywise, Suspension of Disbelief / Mystery, and the Rude Boy Project  / Rood Project EP. That means the only missing one from the Symphony back catalogue is the Freddy Fudpukker EP - which is of course Nookie / Cloud 9. And no worries there, as that should appear on the upcoming Cloud 9 box set. That will of course be Part Two of the "The Rest Is History" series....more on that in the coming months, but for now...





What else can I tell you? We have some exciting new old material from Mark Archer under his Dj Nex name...Jimmy J has three EPs on the way, dubplate specials...Acens Monolith Box Set is around the corner...not to mention some incredible surprise reveals for both Knite Club and the label in due course.

Meanwhile, the Isotonik Box Set is apparently arriving the end of this week, so we will be sending that out lickety split too...

Im exhausted just writing it all....so i will have a little rest and tell you more as soon as I have got my breath back haha! And I will leave you with the schedule of releases at this time (keeping in mind that records are arriving weekly alost, so this will update and change as more music gets here):

If only Leroy Small could get onboard with remastering & re-releasing the legacy Formation Records / F-Project 12”s. In the meantime I’m painstakingly trying to do it myself - getting bored with fixing pops & clicks in my vinyl rips 😂. Still, saves me cash for the Acen Monolith & rare releases!

That Pennywise 12” couldn’t arrive sooner! I’ve borrowed a stack of vinyl from a friend, cleaned it all and now trying to rip & de-pop/click the best tracks. His copy of Pennywise looks & sounds like it had been kicked round a carpark sometime in 1993. Can’t wait to hear a lovely pristine re-release!
