The Harbinger Sound Sampler
Selected by Luke (Wax & Stamp)
It has been another exciting month here at Wax and Stamp. As well as UK weather getting sunnier & outdoor eating and drinking being allowed again, we received the test presses for our first album on the label. Limited to 300, you’ll be receiving it as a part of the October or November box depending on when we receive it. As per normal, we will keep it a secret until you receive the box, but rest assured it is a wonderful piece of music!
Now onto this month’s records: this month is a bonus, as we have a single and a double album for you instead of the usual album and single, so loads more music than usual!
The bonus album is a great sampler that we’ve sourced as an unvault from Harbinger Sound. We can include it in the month’s box as it was unbelievably priced (possibly as a political statement) at £3.99 when first released back in 2017. It includes music from the mighty Sleaford Mods, Consumer Electronics and Pain Jerk, as well as an astonishing array of angry, noisy and political tunes only available at the time on this double LP!
Our main release is an excellent new jazzy hip hop album from Norwegian/Zimbabwean duo Vuyo and Ol’ Burger Beats. The album is inspired by spiritual and revolutionary jazz records, sweet soul music and classic New York hip hop. Vuyo’s sister Lunga Ntila has made the album cover as well as the interludes that tie the album together. It’s a left field and conceptual rap album, exploring Vuyo’s diaspora experience as well as the youthful hunger of the two creatives, and this album is urging us all to take part in their Dialogue. Do whatever you do to get chilled out, and let this one flow through you. Enjoy!
