Up & coming + the news

It's been a long time since we updated the website or blog. The past 6 months have been mainly spent distributing rare and general third party items, so we haven't had chance to spend time with our own projects, although there are many pieces of work ready to roll in the shadows, as I type. Much of the output this year will likely be on the Iron Sound Record label and chiefly produced at AD Studio (UK). We still have close ties with Gadd59 and our new friends in Brasil (especially Monkey Jhayam - shout outs!) will likely step in to help with promotion and limited distribution of our work. Time will tell of course. 2017 was a challenging year for the label, but we haven't thrown the towel in yet, and hope to come out punching in 2018 with a slew of fresh and timely releases.

For a taster of what's to come, see below:

Hot & Rich - Rocksteady (last chance / limited edition 2011 CD edition)

Just re-issued in 2017, is a limited edition of the 2011 album, Hot & Rich - Rocksteady, featuring the original artwork & audio.

The CD was requested by a distributor in Japan, but we also have a small amount left for sale worldwide.

Link below flyer.

Please note: there is also a 2014 edition with re-mastered audio, this particular release is 'not' the same and was produced in Somerset (UK) at an older studio set-up.

Release roll out / Summer 2017 (part 1)

Apologies for the dire lack of updates thus far this year, there are only two of us working in the background at Iron Sound Records and the blog/site hasn't been a priority, aside from zero hour promotion through media networks when projects are ready to roll, we do not prioritise the website, as that has never been our main portal to release work.

The website is more or less a basic advert for our work and a means for customers to pick up the releases we hold on-site through PayPal. The majority of our stock is distributed to 3rd party vendors.

Anyway, that being said, we have a lot of material due out this year and a studio rebuild which is 99% complete with a new analogue desk installed.

Enough waffle, see the two flyers below for material due out this June and then we will keep the blog updated throughout the next few months detailing the up & coming events.

Vinyl releases February 2017 ...


Three brand new singles on general release today (27/02/2017) in the catalogues & hopefully through your usual music vendor.

First up, two singles from Anthony Que on the Observer label backed by Gadd59 Studios (promotion) and shipped in the 2017 Observer sleeve (image above).

Both singles feature a Dub version from Sly & Robbie on the flip-side.

Then we have another vocal track, but this time from musician and vocal talent, Asha B on his own label, Psalm 87 (jointly published by Iron Sound Records). The single is called Terrorist and also features a Dub version from Alien Dread on the flip-side.

The album will feature all of the material from the 2012 release, which also included two bonus tracks; the stand out number being the excellent, Dubnology.
