RAIN & SHINE

Rain & Shine are proud to present, the first official reissue of this sacred slice of funk since it’s 1976 release. And with a median price of £228 on Discogs it’s about time us mere mortals had the chance of owning it.

Remastered and reissued with the original band members blessing, ‘Ain’t No Need’ has long been a favourite of the some of the most well-respected DJs across the scene, from Floating Points and Sadar Bahar, to Mr Scruff and Theo Parrish - with Theo even releasing a live cover version performed alongside his band on their 2014 tour.


21-year-old New Zealand musician Arjuna Oakes's debut EP, The Watcher, is a showcase of his ability as a singer-songwriter, instrumentalist and producer, and a testament to his depth of engagement with music.

The first two tracks on the EP fit neatly within the jazz-infused soul music landscape he is quickly becoming part of, but the latter half of the EP is far harder to categorise. Featuring instrumentation from some of New Zealand’s most exciting young jazz musicians, The Watcher explores a wide variety of themes and musical ideas, with Arjuna’s charismatic soul vocals and robust sonic palette serving as a connective thread. From big social issues to personal relationships and internal self-discoveries, across The Watcher, Arjuna takes his cue from the title track and exploration of mass surveillance, and it’s relevance within our everyday lives.

This watcher theme continues throughout the rest of the EP, with the stories told rendered as if being observed by an outside force. Decorated by cinematic soundscapes, hypnotic grooves, creative improvisation and catchy melodies, Arjuna's debut is a test palette for his future projects, one that makes his enthusiasm to develop and explore themes and style in song abundantly clear.

Recorded in a basement studio in Deer Park, New York - 1980. Mixed Company’s "Let’s Go Disco" is a relatively under the radar record, originally released on New York radio station WNBC 66’s compilation showcasing local talent. Thanks to meticulous archiving, Gene Lastorino was able to locate the original multi-track master tapes for the session which included a number of unreleased tracks. Gene also found lots of old photos and flyers, which you see grace the cover design courtesy of Charlotte McCrae.

Here, Rain&Shine present a 12” with the best unreleased tracks, edited for the dancefloor by Andrea Passenger. The original "Let’s Go Disco" is of course included, along with a Waxist multi-track edit and a groovin’ Frank Booker instrumental mix. Nice!


1977, East Hartford, Connecticut. Rahni Harris, a 21 year old reverend and multi-instrumentalist, and his band, Family Love, were not afraid to embrace their love of R&B and gospel. They laid down "A Different Drummer" LP - one of the most forward thinking LPs recorded during this period and arguably of all time.

"Syncopated Love", "He’s My Friend" and "Make It Easy" have been supported by DJs and collectors in the know for many years. Now, Rain&Shine give Rahni’s’ seminal record another lease of life for discerned collectors, DJs and music lovers worldwide!

Remastered with full original artwork.



Tasty reissue of Steve Elliott’s first album - "True Image" (1981). After failing to find musicians with the same direction and devotion to music he had acquired, Steve taught himself to play eleven different instruments and move from hometown of Pasadena, California to Denver Colorado.

Eager to express his musical ability, Steve became a DJ on KDKO radio, and would then go on to compose, arrange and perform "True Image" on September 20th 1981 with a collection of drum machines, synthesizers, and contributing musicians on Rhodes, flute, guitar and vocals.

Mr. Elliott’s philosophy is 'You hold in your hand a dream, a dream come true by a man whose only objective was to express the love he contains, the love we all contain within through music.'

On many collectors want lists, passing for a median price of $450 online. 


Rain & Shine present in 45 format, "Pray Again" and "Give Your Best To The Master" two certified dancefloor cuts from Shirley Finney’s 1979 LP.

Officially licensed and re-mastered from Savoy reel-to-reel tapes.

Shirley Finney is personally involved in this project, and is overjoyed to see her music hot in demand almost 40 years after the original recording. Limited copies - you know what to do.
