We love our collection of 45s adaptors and as we play just 45s many of which are dinked records this means they are a vital tool of our trade. 45 Live have put together a handy guide to some of the best adaptors out there. We love our Syd Def Jan adaptors so can attest to how good these are.
After what seemed like an age since Edan last released any material, just like buses two new tracks come along at once. First up was his collaboration with Mr Lif on the new Cut Chemist album and now the first single off his forthcoming album with Homeboy Sandman on Stones Throw Records. The beat is very reminiscent of his very underrated debut album Primitive Plus. We can’t wait for this album to drop but more importantly to see Edan live in London with Chemist and DJ Format on 17 May.
Our favourite UK hip hop producer and good friend Evil Ed is back with the first in a series of Edstrumental’s on his Hidden Identity label and on our preferred format 7″ vinyl. The first instalment features two jazzy beats from Ed’s 2008 album “The Get Together” with Conspicuous. Side A is the slamming “Ill Out” while things become more laid back on side B with “You & Me”.
The release is a Limited EDition of 300 copies on black vinyl and pre-sales have already been strong so grab it while you can. It will be available exclusively first at Anytime Records in Eastbourne on 21 April 2018 otherwise pre-order it now for shipping on 23 April to also get the high quality digital download.
