Happy Birthday to Tru-Thoughts, 10 years young, a major achievement for any independent record label especially in these turbulent time of falling record sales, thoughtless free loaders/uploaders and distributors going bust (which happened to the label last year).
Fans of Tru-Thoughts with instantly recgonise Shapes 09:01 as a Robert Luis labour of love with the massive 29 track double CD showcasing all what’s best about the label and its wide range of artists.
So the last time I saw Hint (aka Jonathan James) he was chilling out at the Bill Chill festival last year with his Serato Scratch with some laid back ambient sounds; this year Hint’s got a one woman army comin’ at ya and it’s goin’ to hurt!
Break Reform are Simon S, JJ Webster & Nanar. With a Gilles Peterson Worldwide session planned, two recent 12″s and a new album coming out, it seems to be all coming good all at once. Just to make sure Fly doesn’t miss out, Gerry Hectic tracks down Simon S to get updated and find out about the Japanese connection.
