THE DRASTICS! Vintage dub reggae & classic dancehall sounds!

THE DRASTCS have set the world a blaze with their unique style of heavy roots dub reggae, taking inspiration from past masters (King Tubby, Lee Scratch Perry, Augustus Pablo) and blending in afro- beat, jazz, hip-hop, dancehall, and R&B. Formed in 2003 from the ashes of rock-steady soulsters The Zvooks, The Drastics quickly made a name for themselves with the release of their 2005 debut album “Premonition”, featuring guest vocalists and musicians from Chicago (Vandell Harris, Prince Gonzalez), Boston (Westbound Train members and Craig Akira Fujita from Pressure Cooker), New York (King Django) and Germany (Dr Ring Ding), giving the album many more flavors than originally expected. “Premonition” even appeared in a top 2005 column in The Beat magazine, and received praise in countless magazines and reggae websites. With their sophomore effort “Chicago Massive”, The Drastics seriously upped the ante with 24 musicians collaborating over a two disc set. Disc One contains hard dubs and instrumental versions of Drastic riddims ranging from roots, rub-a-dub, dancehall, and hiphop/reggae hybrids, while Disc Two features eleven vocalists including Dr. Ring Ding, King Django, Todd Hembrook (Deals Gone Bad), Fada Dugou, Zulu, Corey Dixon, and a host of MCs and vocalists from the Chicago underground. In addition to this, a limited edition 12” DJ vinyl pressing includes extended versions of the six best club tracks from the two-disc set. The Drastics are REAL fine, VERY fine. Double CD $12 postage paid. Limited 12" vinyl $8


The album you've been waiting for! Former lead singer of DEAL'S GONE BAD has made our dreams come true. A 12 piece all star band (with many old DGB members too!) playing classic 60's big band calypso that's full of fun innuendos! Is it "dirty"? Only your mind can be the judge! Performing classics that have stood the test of tme, sway and dip to Village Ram, Dr Mike, Big Bamboo, Sell The Pussy, Rusty Sink, and many many more!!! $10 postage paid CD or 10" vinyl

Brazil's FIREBUG! Victor Rice + Slackers = Vintage Jamaican Masterpiece!

Brazil's legendary FIREBUG was the home away from home for VICTOR RICE, who spend 1/2 his time in paradise and began playing with these local up and comers. The first self- title album was a hugely popular mail order item for us in the past 2 years, so we wanted to proudly release the new album to America! Beautiful early reggae and ska sounds, featuring top guests including AGENT JAY and DAVE HILLYARD from THE SLACKERS - and of course produced by VICTOR RICE. This is one of the best albums we have ever had the honor to release on JUMP UP. Period. $10 postage paid

Listen to some BEAUTIFUL Brazilian reggae today!
