new label alert : phoenix city record co




for those that aren’t aware, in recent years, the cherry red empire have quietly taken over the reissue market with a plethora of genre specific sub-labels.

well, come august, there will be a new addition to the ranks providing all manner of reggae/ska/dub treats.

the sub-label, phoenix city record co, will run by one of the main forces behind pama international, sean flowerdew, a definite seal of quality if ever there was one.

so, to kick things off, there are 8 albums being launched digitally with plans for real world product later on :

01. v/a phoenix city scorchers
02. pama intl – love filled dub band (never been on digital)
03. pama intl meets groove corp – dub store special (likewise)
04. king fatty
05. intensified – lunar city groove (recent album on rr)
06. the sidewalk doctors – music is medicine
07. the caroloregians – fat is back
08. capone & the bullets

as things progress i’m sure ireallylovemusic will be letting you know what hits the spot, but in the meantime, here is a nice ruff-n-punked up ska take on the ruts classic, babylon is burning, as featured on the capone & the bullets album.
