R2 News Spring 2012
Ahh hello Spring, we missed you.
The new R2 Classics Re-Issues Series kicks off in March with one of the mightiest groups of all time- The Headhunters’ seminal albums “Survival Of The Fittest” & “Straight From The Gate” on one beautifully re-mastered double CD package. Check here for the lowdown.
That’s followed in April by two killer Ramsey Lewis albums re-issued, “Funky Serenity” & “Salongo”, also re-mastered from original tapes and on a double CD package. More info here.
April also sees a release we’ve been working on for over a year. Karizma “Collection 1999-2011” is a triple vinyl, limited edition (500) “best of”, each cover individually, yes I said individually hand sprayed by Karizma himself. Check the video, music and some of the covers here.
There’s a release party on 14th April at Life Bar with some of the covers on display and Karizma on the decks. Email us here for an invite.
Loftsoul Recordings are back for a third release via R2 “Soul Inspiration”, this time teaming up with the Latin Soul Brothas and Glenn Underground. Check here.
Finally, want to give a shout to the Need 2 Soul crew for putting on Body & Soul on 8th April. François K, Joaquin’Joe’ Claussell, Danny Krivit, Lights By Ariel . Secret east London location. Enough said. Get your tickets here!
