Dj Force & The Evolution, Nine T Nine Records and Doughboy USB and Vinyl...
I guess I will be blogging a little more frequently from now on, because a lot is happening, and things keep changing so fast that keeping you up to date is even more of a prioriy. As any of you who follow me on social media will now know, we have been told another 8000 records shipped to us on Friday, including some of the pre-sale we have been waiting on for so long:
KF155 - Liquid - Lethal 2x 12"
KF154 - Jonny L - Hurt You So (Remixes)
KBOGR47T - Baraka - Nutty Bass / I'll Be There (Hyper-On Experience and Ant To Be Remixes)
KF180 - The House Crew Box Set
All of those will be packed and shipped as fast as possible. We have not yet had notification that the KF181 House Crew Bonus 12" has been shipped, and of course we will need that before we can send The House Crew Box Set out. Likewise, no news on KBOGR45T being shipped yet either, so the Baraka bundle is waiting for that. But I expect to hear both of those have shipped very soon, probably this week. And we are...
No Releases Tonight, and other news lol
A little update to let you know there are no new releases coming out tonight (March 31st 2022)! It has been particularly busy the last 3 or 4 weeks, and it is definitely going to get even more busy from next weekend, but for tonight, there are no new updates.
However, in a weeks time, on April 7th, we will be opening up sales on the Dj Force & The Evolution box Set.
There will be 150 of the full 6 vinyl extended set with slipmat and USB (Containing every track they ever made for us, every remix and a few extra remixes). Also, three of the records are coloured vinyl to match the original releases...so Fall Down On Me is in clear red, Perfect Dreams in a kind of transparent white, and then the bonus 6th vinyl is a color that I cant remember cos I ordered this box set about 4 million years ago lol. But I am sure its gonna look great!
After those 150 are gone, there will be the 5 vinyl set, and if we have extras on the 6th vinyl, we MIGHT have those...View Full Post
This weeks updates, news, info and socks*
I feel a bit like this today:
Well, the crazy keeps on coming, so here’s me trying to keep up with it lol….Let me hit you with some updates, starting with what’s hitting the store this Thursday 24th March at 7pm (UK Time)! And its an impressive array that leans mostly jungle but also with a big cheesy anthem in the middle of it. Brilliant!
Okay, so lets start with the main vinyl releases. First up, we have the classic and much sought after (I know this cos people would always hassle me about it) Dj Magical - Rush Hour EP on Remix Records:
REC33 - Dj Magical - Rush Hour EP
Then it all gets a little more jungletastic. Perhaps this one has been a little lost in the general melee, but its an excellent repress of a highly sought after EP:
KAP02 - Nzo & Invincible - Big Up The Dj EP

Next up is a proper awesome USB from Dj Raps incredible Propa Talent label, this is the first in a run of USBs covering the back catalogue. Full of the excellent labels earlier works, plus exclusive tracks...
Kniteforce Prime is Here!
This is a quick little blog to talk to you about Kniteforce Prime. Here is a video about it...
But I wanted to expand on this a little. I talk to a lot of producers and Djs in all styles and of all ages, and the one thing that they all really seem to agree on is that the years 1990-1995 are the most incredible, informative and groundbreaking of the scene. We all love the early years, when the music spread its wings and really found its unique voice. Voices actually. Thousands of them. The amount of variety those early years had is astonishing. So it is no surprise that the resurgence in both represses and new material and new remixes is so huge and so popular right now, and that it only seems to be growing.
But I have noticed something a little odd. Despite the overall love for that era, the first few years in that group are hardly represented at all. There is a huge variety of 150-165 bpm old skool out there, covering all the styles, jungle, rave, and more, on a multitude of labels....View Full Post
New Release Schedule...
So I have been banging on about all the deliveries and releases we have coming, and thought I should do a blog that gets into specifics a little bit...And this is that blog. All your questions are answered below!
But before we go any further, I want to emphasise this is very much a schedule of releases based on unreliable information lol. I mean, we have been given delivery dates for a HUGE number of releases. We have been told FOURTEEN releases are arriving at the end of March, and a week later, on the 4th of April, another FIFTY are apparently going to be delivered, and then another TWELVE in May.
We have also been told of releases in February, and to be fair, so far they have been pressed and shipped correctly, only slowed by customs shenanigans. So there is a good chance the below schedule will work out. But even then, it has HUGE gaps in it, and things may need to move around. Plus some things just arent on there because of a change in the pressing plants systems - so there is no mention of Dj Solo for example, but that was...
VERY IMPORTANT BLOG ABOUT EVERY RELEASE!
There has been a lot of blog posts recently, because a lot has been happening, but this one is really important and contains a lot of information!
We have finally been given a schedule for the upcoming delivery of releases, and basically, between now and the end of April, we are getting around ninety releases. NINETY.
This is because all the very delayed releases are finally going to arrive. There is quite a lot to say about this, so let me elaborate on what is expected and what is going to happen.
Firstly, all of you who have records on presale or are waiting on orders. EVERY one of the records will be here by the middle of April. So 8 weeks maximum. Some are coming earlier, some later, but all are coming.
This means we will have:
KF159 - Ray Keith Box Set
KF155 - Liquid Lethal
KF154 - Jonny L (Remixes)
KF180 - The House Crew Box Set
KBOGR45T / KBOGR47T - Baraka Bundle
All of the above are absolute priority and we will be sending them out as soon as humanly possible. I say as soon as humanly possible because these releases are all part...View Full Post
NEW RELEASES THIS MONTH - Actual new releases. No, really. Not Pre Sales. New Releases.
GOOD NEWS! After months of not much, the first few releases (that should be the start of an avalanche of vinyl) have been confirmed as on their way! They are two brand new Kniteforce White releases. And when I say brand new, I mean of course "cut in April 2021 but only arriving now" lol. Still, I have to say, these two are absolutely amazing EPs, and will likely sell out super fast as we only have the usual 250 of each pressed:
KFW13 - DS1 - The Bully Parade
And...KFW14 - Sub Fundation - Some Love To Come EP
Do I need to mention the last DS1 EP sold out in a week or so and is now changing hands for around £30? And that Sub Fundation's last EP did nearly the same and is almost as sought after? Maybe not. But I did mention it anyway lol. Both of these EPs are as good, if not better, than their predecessors, and Evento 201 is perhaps my most favourite track on KFW so far. So dont miss these. They will be on sale on the 18th of February, I would think. Im not...View Full Post
Big Store Updates...
One of the small advantages of “not many records coming in” is we get time to reorganise a little.
So today I updated the store!
We have a lot of stock to shift before we are inundated with new vinyl, so the bargain Bucket has reopened with a ton of discounted EPs etc…
On top of that, we have added:
A bunch of records that were out of stock but we only have one or two of, including earlier KFWs and things like Acen - Thrilla and more. Only one or two of each tho…
We have added some more of the epic Pronin release!
We have added a few more on Tunnel 02, 03 and 04!
And for you digital fans…we have added complete digital collections for
Complete Kniteforce (KF01-KF80)
Complete KFA (KFA01 - KFA100)
Complete Knitebreed (BREED01 - BREED20)
Complete Remix Records (REC01 - REC20)
Complete Influential (INFL01 - INFL20)
We have also made every one of the releases within those complete bundles available for download individually. Of course, many of the VIPers and long time fans will have most of these, but it does mean a few of the Influential, Knitebreed, Kniteforce and Remix releases...View Full Post
Updates and Excites!
Its Blog Time! Hooray! Right, what can I drone on about today? Hmmm…a few things…so lets go!
New Releases and Things:
We have found a clever scheme which enables us to press 99 records and add labels and get the whole thing turned around in 6-10 weeks. This is ideal for things like represses of records that aren’t massively in demand, or if we have too much music that we want to get out sooner rather than later, or for limited edition 10 x Vinyl Luna-C Box Sets, or, for example, this label:

We have a few releases lined up on Nine-T-Nine Records, which is a label name I spend a good 42 seconds thinking about. And it is a label that can cover ALL the labels, hence the changing logo on each EP, dependent on what is featured on the vinyl. To do this is a little more expensive than doing a normal run - it's basically test presses with labels, so the quality is the same as a full release, but the number we can press is topped off at 99 - but it does mean I can offer exclusive vinyl...
Loads of News in small (ish) chunks! Please read!
I hope you had a lovely New Year? I did, it was nice to spend Xmas and New Year with my family, something I haven’t done for over a decade what with being in the USA and etc etc.
Anyway, this blog is full of short bursts of news about upcoming things, so let’s jump right in!
1. Price Changes
We all know, whenever you read “price changes” what it really means is “price increases”…but not in this case.
We have numerous plans for music this year, but one thing I am going to try and do is bring prices down. This will be a little bit difficult to navigate, as in general, prices have gone up on every aspect of vinyl production - the actual records, the cut, the card for sleeves, you name it. But there are some places I can cut costs, or at least not raise them. For example, with box sets.
6 Vinyl Extended Box Sets have been previously sold at £87 plus VAT, and 5 Vinyls at £75 plus VAT. I can bring those down to £80 and £70 respectively, so I have already done so with the 5 vinyl NRG Box...
