Forthcoming Swag and Wiggle Classic limited represses coming May 2018

Ed’s Vinyl are pleased to announce our next releases that we are distributing exclusively and will also be available from all good record stores May 2018. These will be limited represses and available on vinyl only.

Swag Classics 002

The work of Adam Collins and Marky Star, one side here is taken from a couple of different releases on the legendary Swag Records labels. The other side is a more recent excursion from the Adam, who now lives in LA and Mark Hobold aka Marky Star has resided in Tokyo for sometime. If you wanted to buy the two tracks on the ‘A’ side they would cost you close to £100. Such is the demand for the authentic sound of the underground. Old school tech house, yo!

Swag Classics 003

Originally released on the seminal London Housing Benefit imprint,straight out of Swag Records many labels, Swag Classics 003 is the work of Eddie Richards and Gideon Jackson. Since it’s 2001 debut the ‘A’ side Biscuit Barrel Blues has steadily become what you might call a bonafide, 100% kosher tech house classic. Delighting clued up clubbers the world over with it’s laid back, but strangely compelling, effortlessly driving groove, it’s a track that’s grown in stature with each passing year. The other side Pull Tab To Open (bit of a fast food theme going on here) is another dance floor gem in the original tech house style. Now available again on vinyl for the first time in 17 years.

Wiggle Classics 001

Back in the early 90’s Dave Coker, Justin Bailey and Laurant Webb set up a music production studio a stones throw away from the famous Cutty Sark in Greenwich, along with Dave ” Deptford ” Pine as one the founders of the aforementioned studio. They called themselves Strangeweather, worked on different dance music styles and formed the fabulously awesome, but slightly ill fated band Wubble U. Around the same time Justin struck up a friendship with Nathan Coles, a then madly enthusiastic young DJ who was starting to make a name for himself on the thriving underground house scene. Nathan introduced Justin to Terry Francis and the rest of the crew and collectively the formed Housey Doings. They released two records on the Bush subsidiary imprint Green Grass and as if by magic tech house was officially born.

Fast forward a couple of years and the boys replaced the ‘s’ with a ‘z’ and struck out on their own. This is a re-release of the first record on the label they named after the now legendary club night Wiggle. Two sides of proper, UK style tech house – a sound that’s been copied, plagiarized and endlessly imitated. But never bettered.
