November 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

The Red Telephone are an alternative/indie band from Burnley, Lancashire signed to Jack to Phono Records. Described as “a band with an obvious and unique talent” by Woho-Music.net, the four piece have impressed audiences across the North West and West Yorkshire with their intensely atmospheric sound and instrument swapping live performances.

Formed in the late summer of 2010, The Red Telephone s…et about crafting a distinct and intimate sound inspired by bands like The National, Radiohead, Interpol and Modest Mouse and swiftly recorded an enthusiastically well received debut EP.

The band’s early shows included runs to the finals of two North West ‘battle of the bands’ competitions and prestigious slots on the Hebden Bridge Trades Club’s Christmas Unsigned and the Prestwich Shangri-La arts festival, with The Red Telephone’s effortlessly melodic guitars, punctuated rhythms and soaring vocals catching attention.

In the Spring/Summer 2011, The Red Telephone took a break from playing live to expand on their progressively developing sound and returned to venues across East Lancashire in the Autumn with a stirring new set that caught the attention of London based independent record label Jack to Phono

Next up to the label is JTP030 is Upskiboo from Copenhagen with the track “Running Like This.”  The download package will include a Tom Eno Disco re-edit.

A bit of blurb here on the muzak! Producer/DJ/collector/graffiti artist Upskiboo from Copenhagen, Denmark is Jack to Phono Records latest release. Upskiboo has previous releases on Melting Pot Music and continues the labels association with Denmark’s varied and cosmopolitan music scene with bands such as Blue Foundation, Ghost Society and The Bass Snatchers.

“Running Like This” becomes the 30th single on Jack to Phono and is back to our roots in terms of beats. The release has echoes of the past, unearthing lost instrumentation, all part of the work and soul of Upskiboo. On the flip side Tom Eno gives the track a disco re-edit worthy of any dancefloor. The track is out on the 28th of November.

October 25, 2011 in Uncategorized

In 2009 old friends Jules Davies and DJ Samantha Evans (aka Sam the chef) got together to form the Mice Girls. Sam wanted some original breaks for her DJ sets so they decided to put some bits together. Hitching a ride down the A470, they arrived in Cardiff where they began experimenting with their newly acquired collection of car boot keyboards.

The dynamic duo have forged their low-fi electronica sound with 80s keyboards and a DIY attitude. Twitchcraft becomes our 28th release on Jack to Phono in time for the Halloween season! The Mice Girls have arrived with their wonky sound. Make the most of it before they disappear up their holes! The Mice Girls are receiving support from BBC Wales.

And remember – the feast ain’t over til someone cuts the cheese

You can download the single here

Boca 45 pens for Jack to Phono!

September 6, 2011 in Uncategorized

“Return Of The Original Dancefreaks Parts 1 & 2”

 Don’t say Boca’s back; he’s never been away. Scott “Boca 45” Hendy is the Bristol UK beatsmith who’s been at the forefront of funky breakbeat music for well over a decade.

 With three solo artist albums in the bag, Pitch Sounds, Vertigo Sounds and Bombonera Sounds for labels Jalapeno, Grand Central and Unique, dancefloor devastating collabos with DJ Andy Smith as “Dynamo Productions”, and the “Beekeepers” project with rising star Parker, now has never been a better time to catch a Boca 45 fever. “Return Of The Original Dance Freaks” parts 1 & 2 sees Boca’s debut on Jack To Phono Recordings.Boca here pays homage to legendary Japaneese label Major Force (with artwork to match : ) and supplies a Disco/Hip Hop/Cut and Shut/Dancefloor monster which will keep floors shaking into 2012 and way beyond.

His love of disco, soul, funk and hip-hop jumps out of anything he touches, and it’s easy to make comparisons to fellow sample-slayers like Cut Chemist, RJD2, DJ Format and DJ Shadow.

 “Boca 45” will this year continue hitting the clubs, armed with a heaving box of 7” vinyl. Already in 2011 he’s Rocked Dancefloors around his native UK plus France, Germany, Romania, festivals such as Glastonbury and Balaton in Hungary plus a 3 date summer residency in Dubai ?!? His aim? As it has been on all his global travels and international DJ shows for the past decade, to whip crowds into a frenzy with his crazy collection of vintage vinyl gems.

Boca 45 is now ready to tour so contact us if you would like to book. We have confirmed dates in Bristol and Bucharest!  The 7 inch vinyl is off to manufacture and we should have it back for all you vinyl freaks in October!
