UMC / VIRGIN

Vinyl reissue of Future Sound of London’s seminal album, "Dead Cities". Marking 25 years since its original release this cult album is pressed on vinyl for the first time since its 1996 release.

“Herd Killing” and “We Have Explosive (Herd Killing mix)” both feature several samples from the Run DMC album Tougher Than Leather. Title track “Dead Cities” contains a vocal sample at the beginning of Laurence Fishburne from the film Deep Cover. Single “My Kingdom” features a vocal sample of “Rachael’s Song” (aka “Rachel’s Song”) by Vangelis, from the Blade Runner soundtrack .

The album charted in the UK top 40 with “My Kingdom” & “We Have Explosive” both entering the UK singles chart in the top 15.

A deadly mix of warped breakbeats, cinematic moods and adrenelin-triggering sfx and synthesis; it's world's apart from the acid house revellry of "Papua New Guinea" and a much more challenging, if rewarding and immersive experience...

The Chemical Brothers

Surrender - 20th Anniversary Expanded

    The Chemical Brothers release a new, fully expanded version of their classic third album Surrender. The 20th anniversary deluxe reissue will feature the original 1999 album with previously unreleased ‘Secret Psychedelic Mixes’ of Surrender album tracks as well as a selection of the remixes from the time and a DVD of restored promo videos and film of their legendary Glastonbury 2000 performance (still reckoned to have drawn the biggest ever crowd to the Pyramid Stage). 

    Root Down is an EP by legendary hip hop group Beastie Boys, released in 1995. The first three tracks are variations of the track “Root Down,” from the Beastie Boys’ 1994 album Ill Communication. The remaining seven tracks were recorded “live in Europe, winter 1995.” This bad boy has been out of press for, like, forever, so now you can get all kinds of Beastie realness.

    Rodriguez

    Coming From Reality - Reissue

      Back in 1971, "Coming From Reality" was Rodriguez's last gasp, the follow-up to "Cold Fact" and the final album he was allowed to record for the Sussex label. Unearthed, once again, it's another treat for fans new and old, designed - at the time - as Rodriguez's vision of a perfect pop album.

      "Coming From Reality" found Rodriguez decamping from Detroit to London's Lansdowne Studios, where the album was recorded with some of the UK's top talent including Chris Spedding (Dusty Springfield, Harry Nilsson) and producer Steve Rowland (The Pretty Things, PJ Proby and the man who discovered The Cure), who recalls "Coming From Reality" as his favourite ever recording project.

      Highlights include the super-poppy "To Whom It May Concern", the "Rocky Raccoon"-inspired "A Most Disgusting Song" and period piece "Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour".

      Cold Fact - Reissue

        Sixto Diaz Rodriguez recorded "Cold Fact" - his debut album - in 1969, and released it in March 1970. It's crushingly good stuff, mixing soul, funk, rock and psychedelia and filled with tales of bad drugs, lost love, and itchy-footed songs about life in late 60s inner-city America. But the album sank without trace, thanks, in part, to some of Rodriguez's more idiosyncratic behavior, like performing at an industry showcase with his back to the audience throughout.

        As his music career became a memory, Rodriguez's legend was growing – on the other side of the world. While in the UK and US the album gained a cult status, in South Africa "Cold Fact" had become a major word of mouth success, eventually going double platinum. Eventually Rodriguez was tracked down, re-launching his career in the late 90s and selling out 5000 capacity venues in South Africa.

        Massive Attack

        Mezzanine (2018 Remaster)

          UMC are proud to announce this reissue of Massive Attack’s double platinum (UK) album featuring the original album re-mastered + an album of previously unreleased dub remixes by the Mad Professor. Widely hailed as their masterpiece, and voted 15 in Q Magazine’s 100 Greatest British Albums Ever (2000), Mezzanine saw the band move away from the ‘trip-hop’ sound they had helped define to embrace rock and electronica.

          Mezzanine was remastered by Tim Young at Metropolis who has worked with the band for over twenty years. The Mad Professor remixes were originally intended to be released on a Mad Professor Mezzanine remix album – as the band had done with previous album Protection (No Protection) – yet in the end only a number of his remixes were issued as single b-sides.

          All 8 of the Mad Professor remixes included here are previously unreleased and include his dub mixes of 2 tracks not originally featured on Mezzanine but from the same period – Metal Banshee – a dub version of Superpredators which was a cover of Siouxie and the Banshee’s Metal Postcard – and Wire, a track they recorded for the soundtrack of the film Welcome to Sarajevo.

          Remastered Mezzanine + exclusive Mad Professor dub remixes from original Mezzanine sessions across 2CD Digipack. 4 colour outer, black to reverse / CDs black underside (not silver) / 3 x spot colour on face.
