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.
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.
