Fredrik Lager / Freddie Cruger (Red Astaire) sadly passed away last year in June.. This 10 track LP of unreleased instrumentals in a full color jacket pays tribute to Freddie's musical legacy, and reminds us why this beatsmith was a favorite of Giles Peterson, Erykah Badu, Jazzy Jeff and so many more. It's a totally delicious selection of jazzy beatdown, moody head-nodders, smoked out car park jams and the odd bit of dub engineering for good measure. Gorgeous sleeve artwork designed by JJ Marley from Homegrown. Highly recommended!

Freddie Cruger

Just Chillin' In The Spot

    Repress of this amazing Freddie Cruger (AKA Red Astaire) album on his  Homegrown Records imprint. As we mentioned last week, there's a slew of reissues coming from the recently deceased artist's estate; reminding us just how skilled a producer Red Astaire was, and what a hole he's left in the musical landscape...

    As you would expect from a man who's released a plethora of tunes taking in a vast array of styles, "Just Chillin'" is a heady mix of hip hop, jazz, soul, funk, disco and just about everywhere else in-between. Yet, most importantly, it's all about the beats - which are infectious and upfront on every track. In total there are thirteen tracks, perfect for your back room, main room, front room or BBQ.

    Wildcookie Aka Freddie Cruger & Anthony Mills


    Double A side 7" from the formidable Wildcookie duo - Freddie Cruger & Anthony Mills' highly acclaimed project. Head nodding, downbeat goodness with plenty of conscious soul. "Heroine" muses on the joys and pains of the world's oldest opiate to a languid and seductive soundbed of jazzy licks, breathy sax and moody keys, and propelled via a simple, backroom boom bap.

    "Something About Those Days" is a kinda feel good, old school flavoured nostalgic rap track, set to a dusty beat laced with horns and full of catchy lines about the good old days and sweet mary jane.

    Beautifully soulful stuff from these downbeat legends. Limited copies.
