Our "One Stop Record Shack" t-shirt series is a tribute to the mobile record shop.  Particularly the Mobile Record Shack by Charlie Ace.  Charlie Ace was one of the Jamaican DJ originals. Following his career as a DJ, in the early 70's he drove around the backstreets of Kingston in his Swing A Ling Mobile Record Shack, a converted Morris Van. From this mobile shop, he would sell the latest releases, many of them pressed on his own label Swing-A-Ling. He was gunned down in Kingston in the early 1980's.More info on the Charlie Ace record shack and be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IalZ9qDJRjM *Includes a special download card redeemable for 1 download of your choice from our DJ Mix Series.

SUN RA born Herman Poole Blount, legal name Le Sony'r Ra, May 22, 1914 – May 30, 1993) was an American jazz composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer player, poet and philosopher known for his experimental music, "Cosmic Philosophy", prolific output and theatrical performances.  He was inducted into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in 1979. For much of his career Sun Ra led "The Arkestra"  an ensemble with an ever-changing name and flexible line-up. Born and raised in Alabama, Blount would eventually become involved in the 1940s Chicago jazz scene. He soon abandoned his birth name, taking the name Sun Ra (after Ra, the Egyptian God of the Sun) and developing a complex persona and mythology that would make him a pioneer of Afro-futurism, he claimed he was an alien from Saturn on a mission to preach peace and throughout his life he consistently denied any ties to his prior identity.  His widely eclectic and exploratory music would eventually touch on virtually the entire history of jazz, ranging from swing music and bebop to free jazz and fusion, and his compositions ranged from keyboard solos to big bands of over 30 musicians. From the mid-1950s until his death, Sun Ra led the musical collective "The Arkestra" (which featured artists such as Marshal Allen, John Gilmore, June Tyson throughout its various iterations). Its performances often included dancers and musicians dressed in elaborate, futuristic costumes inspired by ancient Egyptian attire and the space age. Though his mainstream success was limited, Sun Ra was a prolific recording artist and frequent live performer, and remained both influential and controversial throughout his life for his music and persona. He is now widely considered an innovator; among his distinctions are his pioneering work in free improvisation and modal jazz and his early use of electronic keyboards. Over the course of his career, he recorded dozens of singles and over one hundred full-length albums, comprising well over 1000 songs and making him one of the most prolific recording artists of the 20th century.  *Includes a special download card redeemable for 1 download of your choice from our DJ Mix Series.

Before many DJ’s were exclusively using Serato, innovation and creation in mixing records was a necessary survival skill -- adapt or die. Rockin doubles was one of the essential tricks to the art of DJing. You bought doubles of a track and mixed different parts of the same cut to create sonic effects -- beat juggling, extending the break, repeating the hook or chorus -- the variations were as endless as your creativity. Rockin doubles was designed to make dancers move and chin scratchers bob their heads in awe. Our good friend J-Rocc -- who we are featuring this season along with Lefto with an exclusive design and mix -- is a master at rockin doubles. Disco Doubles pays respect to the legends; Larry Levan, David Mancuso, Frankie Knuckles, Daniele Baldelli, et. al who were innovators when it came to flippin disco doubles. An essential design geared towards the DJ’s, producers and dancers who appreciate the art and history of DJ culture. *Includes a special download card redeemable for 1 download of our choice from our DJ Mix Series.

Champion of Sound is our nod to the design style of the vintage boxing era and to the sound clashes of Jamaica that spawned the phrase. DJ’s in Jamaica took their sound systems seriously and whoever had the loudest, thickest booming sound system would reign the nightclubs of the streets. Some of the best nightclubs in Europe and the US today model their sound systems based on some of the technical specs that were tweaked back in those early days in Jamaica. We pay tribute to those sound clashes by creating a design with the text Champion of Sound set on a prize winning vintage boxing ribbon flanked by large records.

A Tribe Called Quest is one of the hallmark groups of hip-hop, creating a whole new sound with their conscious, jazzy approach to hip-hop. With crackling production, a plethora of creative samples from some very deep crates and the lyrical interplay of Phife and Q-Tip, the group defined the 90s sound, an era which is still looked back on as the “golden age” of hip hop. “Lyrics to Go” is one of our favorite tracks of the critically acclaimed Midnight Marauders record, with samples from Minnie Riperton and James Brown, its a track that defines the classic Tribe sound. This shirt has the text “Lyrics to Go” in a large weathered font for maximum vintage appeal and a microphone set against them. A must for Tribe Called Quest fans, hip-hop archaeologists or anyone who appreciates lyricism in its finest form.
