The Enforcers - Jersey Connection Instros 12" EP
To accompany The Enforcers long lost soundtrack, ''The Jersey Connection'', is K-Def's instrumental score on wax. Pressed in very limited numbers, so grab yours while you can.



DITC - DITC Studios 2xLP
Limited Deluxe Vinyl Edition, 180g 2XLP. Silver Foil Detailing to Gatefold Jacket.

Diggin' In The Crates crew are back in the studio, their own studio at that, and the result is their first new album in 15 years. 15 tracks deep, this album features lyrics and production by all members of the crew, including a few new affiliates. Highlights include a return to the microphone by Lord Finesse on the banger ''Rock Shyt'', Fat Joe returning to this legendary Bronx crew and DJ Premier production on ''Connect 3''. This album was designed to be the first of many new releases coming out of their new headquarters and label, DITC Studios.



Jeremiah Jae & Zeroh - Holy Smoke 10" EP
Special 10'' color vinyl (containing unique trails of silver smoke encased in clear wax) and housed in a one-of-a-kind silkscreened jacket (featuring artwork by Zeroh & PsyteOne). Only 400 quantity pressed. Each album comes with HOLY SMOKE matches!

HOLY SMOKE is the fabled collaboration between producer/rappers Jeremiah Jae & Zeroh. The nine songs recorded together in Los Angeles 2012 focus on the spirit, health and the sacred use of cannabis.

The swiftly-produced HOLY SMOKE sessions got buried in Jae's relentless release schedule, ultimately archived in 2013 after a fresh signing with Warp Records and return to Chicago. The world's only clues to these lost sessions came in the appearance of tracks ''Trusted Friends'' (2012) and ''Black Myth'' (2013) on HIT+RUN compilation albums, until excavated from the vaults in early 2016.

The Enforcers - The Jersey Connection LP
Now on Limited Edition Vinyl.

This is the Previously Unreleased Project by El Da Sensei in collaboration with K-Def. The CD Includes Instrumentals.

This album sat in the archives for nearly a decade, but is finally getting the release it deserves. El Da Sensei is Mean ''Johnny'' Barrows and K-Def is Ghettoman in this gritty New Jersey soundtrack. These two combine as The Enforcers taking down anyone who gets in their way on a mission to give you what you need...quality hip hop!

No soundtrack is complete without quality art and this doesn't disappoint with an incredible cover illustration by Fred Whyte.



Elzhi - Elmatic 2xLP
Out of print for 5 years, now re-issued on Glow 365.

Detroit hip-hop mainstay and former Slum Villager Elzhi's tribute and a remake of Nas' 1994 classic debut Illmatic. ''Elzhi's mic skills along with heightened musicality supplied by funk band Will Sessions' instrumentals (including extended outros) serve as viable bonuses to the project's listening experience. After sitting with this D-Town vet's Illmatic cover, it ain't hard to tell that he manages to recoup some of the genre's fleeting magic, surely earning further acclaim to his own underrated name.'' - Nate Santos



Swarvy - Elderberry LP
Swarvy's Elderberry comes crunchy and warm from the jazzy and soulsonic EP of some really raw beat-making. Hailing now from L.A., originally from Philadelphia, Leaving welcomes multi-instrumentalist & producer Swarvy to the circle of synergy.

Artwork by Chris Hund.



Wax Poetics - Wax Poetics #65 Magazine
Wax Poetics Issue 65 is going back to their roots with 21 pages dedicated to A Tribe Called Quest's debut album, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, including an oral history with original founding members Q-Tip, Phife Dawg (in his final interview), Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi, as well as ''fifth member'' and iconic engineer Bob Power! Rare and classic photos by Ernie Paniccioli and Janette Beckman, as well as pics from the personal collection of Ali Shaheed Muhammad.

Back cover feature explores David Bowie's time in Philly, recording David Live and much of his R&B masterpiece, Young Americans? at the iconic Sigma Sound Studios used by Gamble & Huff and countless Philly soul acts. The in-depth, 20-page story is told with the help of producer Tony Visconti; pianist Mike Garson; model, muse, and singer Ava Cherry; singer Robin Clark, and her husband, guitarist and collaborator Carlos Alomar. Rare photos of Bowie at Sigma by photographer Dagmar! We also offer a four-page ''David in Philly'' timeline and a five-page interview with Bowie photographer Steve Schapiro.

Also included: The history of ''Northern Soul''; organist and ''Why Can't We Live Together'' songwriter Timmy Thomas; bassist and jazz-futurist Esperanza Spalding; singer/rapper Anderson .Paak; singer Dornik; and Hawiian music collective Aloha Got Soul.



Gonjasufi - A Sufi and A Killer 2xLP
After 6 years this release is finally making its return to vinyl, just as Sufi himself returns with his first new full LP in as many years.

This is Gonjasufi's debut full-length on Warp, ''A Sufi And A Killer''. Here at Access we still call him Sumach (check out the CDR releases under his former moniker), and when we first saw the title of the album it shouted ''production by the Gaslamp Killer!'' (though it turns out Will/the GLK is only one of the producers). At the moment (so says the Warp publicity), Gonjasufi ''stands just outside the spotlight cast on his friends and collaborators Flying Lotus and The Gaslamp Killer, but the sonic brotherhood that exists is implicit rather than as similarities in sound. Drawing from unearthed strains of global psychedelia and merging it with a rejuvenated sense of hip-hop clarity currently distinct to the West Coast, Gonjasufi is more than just a songwriter, MC or performer. His debut album A Sufi And A Killer recalls moments in love as well as trading sinister threats with enemies, sometimes within the same song. Trading in both the murk of lo-fidelity vintage samples and the concentrated crispness of current West Coast production, A Sufi And A Killer is both a roadmap to the riches of the distant past and a signpost to the future.''

The Mild High Club - Skiptracing LP
Following on the mellow buzz generated on their 2015 debut album, Timeline, The Mild High Club returns with their second full-length, Skiptracing. In just over a year, it's been quite the journey for Alexander Brettin, who is both founder and member of the Club.

Brettin admits that for the first Mild High Club album he resorted to vague lyrics so as to highlight the music itself. But for Skiptracing there's both a heightened thematic aspect as well as more complex musical arrangements encasing it. In Brettin's estimation, the album's story arc is that of a ''private investigator attempting to trace the steps of the sound and the spirit of American music.'' And in investigating the spirit of American music, The Mild High Club re-imagine AM radio hits as blasting in from a parallel universe, the sound of early 70s LA in a smog of sativa.

If Todd Rundgren was the primary touchstone for Timeline, Brettin and band now look to the wry, trenchant wit of Steely Dan, gazing deep into the dark underbelly of sun-bright LA and coming away with a catchy song underpinned by slippery jazz phrasings. It's a cosmic connection that tethers The Mild High Club to fellow sonic brethren like Ariel Pink, Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Connan Mockasin and more.



Guru - Jazzmatazz vol. 1 LP
Out of print for over a decade. Reissued in 2016!

This is Guru at ONE with himself. I believe this to be his finest work. Guru lays it down smooth and nice. Very experimental and very solid.



Sam The Sleezbag+Mekalek - #SleezbagMekalekTape 3xCD

Spanning the first two discs is ninety minutes of exclusive freestyles and songs from the personal vault of Sam The Sleezbag -- all meticulously scratched, cut, mixed and blended in true mixtape form by DJ Mekalek.

The duo, consisting of New York based audio engineer/producer Sam The Sleezbag, and Rhode Island based DJ/producer DJ Mekalek, refuse to comply with modern day formats, and deliver nothing but the best quality music.

The third disc contains a 30-track bonus collection of unreleased joints and lost freestyles. This specially-priced 3CD set comes manufactured in a unique custom Digipak foldout.



J Dilla (Jay Dee) - The Shining (7'' Box Set) 10x7"
Limited Edition 10th Anniversary 7-inch Box Set, first time in this format, with Vocal & Instrumental cuts together in one package.

Unbelievably, a decade has passed since the release of J Dilla's posthumously completed final album The Shining. Demand for Dilla's music has continued to grow and grow since his tragic passing in 2006, testament to his talent and originality which has influenced a whole new generation of producers and music-lovers across the globe.

Around 75% complete at the time of his death, the task of finishing the album was entrusted to friend and fellow Detroit artist Karriem Riggins. The album features stellar performances from Common, Busta Rhymes, D'Angelo, Black Thought and Pharoahe Monch, as well as Dilla himself rhyming on closing track ''Won't Do.''

Undeniably soulful yet raw, real and deeply rooted in the streets, The Shining perfectly showcases perhaps the greatest beat-maker of all time at his very best. To mark the tenth anniversary of this special album, which marked the reunion of Dilla and BBE for the first time since his debut LP Welcome 2 Detroit, this limited edition box set features both original and instrumental versions across a massive ten discs serving as a timely document to an artist who helped bring underground hip hop and soul together, introduced new levels of creativity to music production and wrote a blueprint which continues to be followed to this day.

Please note: Due to the weight and size of this box set there will be an additional shipping charge for some orders, including most orders to be shipped outside of North America. We will contact you for approval of any extra charges before shipping.
