about

A much needed reissue of this ace little 10" from Glasgow's Firecracker crew originally released back in '04. Linkwood family head up the A-side with a wicked Moodymann styled slack soul heads cut for the floor with 'Miles Away', a superbly velveteen homage to detroit beatdown styles with deliciously burnished horns and lights-down-low soul vox from Compost rec's Joseph Malik, butter stuff. Family friend Fudge Fingas contributes the irresistible vibes of 'Gettin' together' on the flip, a slow burning floor trak strictly for the heads with some perfectly studied classic soul edits woven into a loving homage to the Motor city more soulful side. Linkwood does the solo thing on final track 'fate' with a heady swirl of piquant keys and patchworked rhythms lending a fresh and psychedelic twist to the proceedings, brilliant stuff. (Boomkat)

Finally, a re-issue of the legendary 1st Firecracker EP on 10" format. Nearly three years since it's first exclusive appearance in London's Vinyl Junkies, this elusive record (only 500 were pressed) has picked up a huge cult following including Derrick May, Moodymann, Theo Parrish, DJ Spinna, Danny Krivit, Osunlade, Mike Clark, Mike Grant, Carl Craig, Ron Trent, Stacey Pullen, JazzySport djs, Joe Claussell, Jazzanova, Shelter Djs and many more. In recent months, it has been seen on ebay and Discogs for over $60.00! A true collector's piece! The record holds 3 killer Detroit influenced soul grooves, once again, these tracks come lovingly packaged with this official re-issue being pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl. (Rubadub)
