    The starter turntable of choice for audiophiles the world over!


    The new Essential III builds on the successes of the Essential II. The Essential II is a fabulous sounding turntable. It's the least expensive turntable on the market that includes both a high precision main bearing and a solid, adjustable tonearm that's based on the award winning Debut design. It's become the starter turntable of choice for audiophiles the world over.


    The new Essential III adds some nice upgrades compared to the Essential II. Cosmetically, the Essential III takes a cue from the award winning Debut Carbon DC, with a lustrous high-gloss finish that's available in Black, Red, or White. The platter also gets an upgrade: it's constructed of a dense MDF for minimal resonance and finished in a high-gloss piano black. The visual effect is striking, especially on the Red and White tables where the high-gloss platter contrasts nicely with the plinth. It looks really spectacular if you display it with some fun colored vinyl to accentuate the colors! The adjustable 8.6" one-piece aluminum tonearm is significantly more sophisticated than anything close to its price range, and utilizes sapphire bearings for minimal friction and many years of reliable performance. The Essential III also includes a factory mounted/aligned Ortofon OM10 cartridge. You won't find a better performing, better matched cartridge/tonearm combination in this price range.


    The main platter bearing is precision machined high grade stainless steel and the drive pulley is crafted from aluminum. A new DC motor speed controller board regulates the platter speed and the Essential III now includes Connect it E interconnect hardwired directly to the output.


    *Not compatible with Speed Box S or Speed Box DS.

    With Ortofon OM 5E


    Turntable innovation for vinyl starters with class-leading sound quality & vinyl recording capability!


    A quiet-running synchronous motor with silicone belt is driving a low-resonance platter made from MDF. A new motor control with DC power supply minimzes unwanted vibration effectively. The main platter bearing consists of stainless steelspindle and bronze bushing with Teflon bottom to seccure low friction. The main chassis is made from lightweight, but very stiff particle board.


    Essential II Phono USB utilises a straight 8,6 aluminium tonearm design made from a single piece of aluminium with sapphire bearings, which offers a far better plug & play solution, than it's predecessor. Special feet effectively decouples the turntable from the surface.


    Because Essential II Phono USB comes with pre-mounted cartridge and built-in phono preamplifier with USB output, connection to both line-level input of your hifi system and PC/Mac easily can be used simultaneously! Open-Source recording software Audacity® is not based on a specific platform, is available for free and the perfect solution for recording and processing of your audio data.

Studio Number One was founded by Shepard Fairey, and the Pro-Ject George Harrison record player makes use of an image taken from the world-famous artist's work.


    The turntable itself is based on Pro-Ject Audio Systems' coveted Essential III design with an Acryl-IT E platter. The Essential III benefits from a sturdy MDF plinth mounted on anti-vibration feet. Supplied with an acrylic platter, high-quality tonearm and Ortofon OM 10 cartridge, the sound performance puts the turntable in a class of its own when compared to rival products.


    The Pro-Ject George Harrison turntable is the perfect product for any George Harrison fan who takes their sound quality seriously. It's also the ideal companion to the new vinyl box set, which features all twelve of Harrison's studio albums as well as the classic live album Live In Japan (2LP) and two 12" single picture discs of When We Was Fab and Got My Mind Set On You.


    Released to commemorate George Harrison's birthday (February 25th), the whole vinyl box set has been pressed onto high-quality 180g heavyweight vinyl with re-masters taken from the original analogue master tapes and newly cut at the legendary Capitol studios. With such a high-quality vinyl collection, it's essential that you play these iconic tracks on a good record player, and the Pro-Ject George Harrison is just the player you need.

    The Essential Going Back

    Remastered by Nick Davis


    I decided to call this version of 'Going Back' 'The Essential Going Back,' Phil explained. In retrospect, I included too much music on the original version, and I believe that too much is not always a good thing. Hence this trimmed down selection of my favorite Motown songs.


    Originally released in 2010, Going Back was Phil Collins' first studio album since 2002 and saw him back at #1 on the charts. This album was a personal labor of love project that found him faithfully recreating the soul gems that played such an influential role in his musical life.


    This is one of the last releases in Collins' Take A Look At Me Now series. Each album in the series has been remastered by Grammy-nominated Nick Davis. Each album features a bold artwork concept in which Collins has recreated his poses from the original album covers with new photography that was shot in the present day.


    This will be released as 180 gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl of the remastered album.

    The Happiness Project

    The Broken Social Scene Presents Series, in which the core members of the many-membered Canadian co-op release solo albums from under the safety of the band's umbrella, has, thus far, delivered a couple of releases that haven't fallen far from the BSS tree. Charles Spearin's The Happiness Project is the most unique release in the series so far and it began as a number of interviews, in which Spearin would talk to his friends and neighbors ranging in age and culture about, essentially, the subject of happiness. Working from these recordings, Spearin used the cadence, rhythm and intonation of these voices and then recruited musicians to play a singular instrument in a fashion that matches the meter and melody of these spoken conversations.

    Feels Like

    Bully is the name for the Nashville quartet that is transforming familiar '90s alt-rock (Dinosaur Jr, Pavement, Weezer) into smart, sharp-edged millennial indie rock - an apt description for the band's churning guitars, rambunctious rhythms, and tightly coiled intensity. Their debut Feels Like sounds alternately like a balled fist and a fresh bruise.


    Bully is also the perfect distillation of frontwoman Alicia Bognanno's visceral approach to songwriting. She trades in steely observations, raw-nerve confessions, and intense anger directed almost exclusively at herself although a few bystanders and bad exes might get caught in the crossfire. Her voice rises from sugar-sweet to scratchy howl as she bares her most harrowing fears to the world. In other words, Bognanno is her own bully. Not merely the band's vocalist, songwriter, guitarist, and all-around visionary, she is also Bully's producer and engineer.


    Based in Nashville, Alicia Bognanno formed Bully essentially as a solo project backed by a trio of friends: Stewart Copeland on drums, Clayton Parker on guitar, and Reece Lazarus on bass. Bully is less a studio entity than a stage act, one that has quickly developed a reputation for its ferocious live shows (the Nashville Scene named Bully the top local band in its 2014 Best of Nashville issue.)


    On record, Bully strives to retain the band s formidable guitar attack while highlighting her boldly candid lyrics. The band recorded Feels Like live in the studio, doing as few takes as possible. Once they'd gotten a good performance, the songs were mixed immediately, not merely to save time but to preserve the excitable urgency of the music. Overseeing every part of the process put extra pressure on Bognanno to deliver some truly unbridled vocal performances. A deeply personal album by an artist bravely mining her own life, Feels Like is all about trying to figure yourself out about holding yourself accountable and acting like an adult in a society that doesn't offer very many good examples.

    Reflection Eternal


    Universal Music Enterprises Continues Its "Respect The Classics" Tribute To Many Of Hip-hop's Finest With The Vinyl Reissue Of Rap Icon Talib Kweli's
    Historic Rawkus Records Catalog


    After releasing a handful of essential 12s on various Rawkus Records projects in the late '90s, Talib Kweli and DJ Hi-Tek were on the verge of becoming one of hip-hop's best-kept secrets. Yet their original incarnation as a duo expanded into a triumvirate with the inclusion of Mos Def and transformed their eventual manifestation into Black Star, thwarting their initial bid for acclaim. While Kweli's stardom may have been initially eclipsed by his more charismatic cohort, Mos Def, Reflection Eternal houses enough merit to establish Talib as one of this generation's most poetic MCs. Kweli is a rare MC, as his lyricism resounds with a knowledge that transcends his still tender age. He does not aspire to reprogram the masses with this album, just rehabilitate them, as he laments on The Blast: They ask me what I'm writing for/I'm writing to show you what we fighting for. In an effort to celebrate life, Kweli breaks down hip-hop's obsession with death on Good Mourning and Too Late. But it is his varied lyrical content that is most inspiring, effortlessly transitioning from the poignant circle-of-life epic For Women to the rugged Some Kind of Wonderful and Down for the Count, featuring Rah Digga and Xzibit. While the unassuming, largely minimalist grooves that Hi-Tek supplied on Black Star's debut longed for a dramatic flair, he displays a remarkable maturation on Reflection Eternal. In fact, Tek's loping keyboard wails, soulful staccato claps, and shimmering piano loops are often sublime in their arrangement and outcome. Though Kweli and Hi-Tek's debut harbors over-ambitious tendencies, clocking in at over 70 minutes in length, they are a duo that will undoubtedly stain their memory into hip-hop's collective memory with this noteworthy debut. Welcome to the new generation of Native Tongue speaking.

    This Mother's Daughter (Pure Pleasure)

    This Mother's Daughter remains the most soulful record cut by Nancy Wilson during her Capitol tenure -- producer Eugene McDaniels proves an inspired if surprising choice to helm the session, and his subtle but ingenious jazz-funk flourishes are essential to the project's immediacy and appeal. McDaniels couches Wilson in settings as smooth and rich as velvet, crafting a series of mellow, gently propulsive grooves that flirt with contemporary soul but pay heed to the singer's roots in jazz. Wilson responds with a performance that's sophisticated yet saucy, commanding the spotlight with an intensity that's missing from her lesser Capitol efforts.



    Musicians:



    • Nancy Wilson (vocal)

    • Blue Mitchell (fluegel horn)

    • Hugh McCracken, Jeff Miranoy (guitar)

    • Dave Gruisin, George Duke (piano, organ)

    • Chuck Rainey (bass)

    • Steve Gadd (drums)

    • Oliver Brown (percussion)



    Recording: 1976 at The Record Plant, Los Angeles, by Phil Boogie Schier

    Production: Eugene Daniels



    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    DYAD: Original Game Soundtrack (Discontinued) (On Sale)


    Limited Numbered First Edition


    In the videogame DYAD, a mysterious, micro organic particle zips through a
    Pollock-like tunnel that intensifies in shape, color and feel as players
    advance through the game. But like DYAD's predecessors, games aiming to
    be all-out sensory assaults, the synapse-frying player experience is
    inherently tied to the game's extraordinary soundtrack. Designed and
    produced by Oakland based composer David Kanaga, the soundtrack to
    Dyad will be made widely available for the first time by Software Recording
    Co.


    David Kanaga's maximalist score for DYAD fuses a breakneck array of
    sound events to rich, ambient segues of layered harmonies and melodic
    color. Like the ceaseless forward movement of the game itself, where the
    protagonist particle encounters cascades of oncoming enemies, the
    elements of the music also shift in concert with the events of the game.
    There are drops in octaves according to speed of the particle, and synced
    musical events signaling an array of hallucinatory actions on screen.
    Textures morph, pitches drift, events quantize and de-quantize in meditative
    flows that sustain repose one moment, and sonic assaults the next.


    Kanaga casts a wide net stylistically; a kaleidoscope of influences ranging
    from from acid-fried happy hardcore, to jungle and drum-n-bass rhythms to
    re-applied fragments of Top 40 production tropes, not to mention more than
    several sublime passages of hazy, cosmic coloring. Importantly, even with
    this stylistic range, the soundtrack never veers from referencing the
    particular intensities of the events in play. The frenetic music shifts in
    accordance with the game's own digital psychedelia, becoming on its own a
    kind of virtual stand-in for the game itself.


    David Kanaga's foray into videogame soundtracking first reached acclaim
    with 2011's Proteus. The peaceful approach of the soundtrack heightened
    the 'natural environment' of the game, imbuing it with a sense of cryptic
    quietude. The soundtrack was awarded Indiecade's award for Best Audio,
    was heralded by The Guardian as beautiful and affecting and was also
    exhibited at MoMA.


    In DYAD, Kanaga pivots away from the drifting ambiances of Proteus in
    order to score this rail shooter. (A rail shooter is a type of videogame
    where a player's protagonist is guided along a pre-set path, typically within a
    technoidal tunnel filled with rapidly appearing obstacles at high velocities,
    ala Tetsuya Mizuguchi's Rez or Jeff Minter's classic Tempest) This kind of
    speed-play forces the player to grapple with time and motion in constantly
    shifting spaces. Kanaga's audible results are aptly mystifying -- it's a
    soundtracked journey that relentlessly pushes forward into an ever more
    abstract provenance.


    Extensive liner notes in the DYAD release include notations,
    schematics and game instructions hand penned by Kanaga himself as well
    as snippets of the code behind the music (programmed by the game's
    mastermind Shawn McGrath). David Kanaga, who is an experimental
    music composer, active writer and new media artist, is continuing to explore
    interactive possibilities of music in games and other dynamic environments
    with a prolific stream of projects forthcoming. DYAD is an essential node in
    today's expanding base of trailblazing game music by one of the brightest
    minds in the field.

    Mama Earth (Pre-Order)

    The all-star Mama Earth lineup of Joss Stone (vocals), Nitin Sawhney (guitar), Jonathan Joseph (drums), Étienne M'BappÉ (bass/guitar) and Jonathan Shorten (keyboards) will release their debut EP Mama Earth via Mascot/Provogue.


    The project started when British soul singer Joss Stone and her former musical director Jonathan Joseph hit on the Mama Earth concept of an album driven by the dynamic rhythms of Africa. A band was assembled from all corners of the music world. Jonathan's compadre Étienne M'BappÉ, the dazzling Cameroon-born multi-instrumentalist whose rÉsumÉ spans from John McLaughlin to Robben Ford; Jonathan Shorten, who had produced much of Stone's studio catalogue between penning some of the biggest hits for acts including Gabrielle and (again) Joss Stone. Finally, there was Nitin Sawhney: the genre-slipping wildcard and one-man musical tidal wave whose collaborations take in Sting, Paul McCartney, and the London Symphony Orchestra.


    The 5 musicians convened at Stone's house, where the musical squad didn't take long to feel each other out. Music was spontaneously written on the spot, without any preparation. In the meantime, Stone purposefully kept her own creative process separate from the four musicians. I left them to do their own thing with the music in the studio, she reflects, while I was cooking dinner in the kitchen. I deliberately didn't have any input in the music, because I didn't want to affect it - or it'd all come out hip-hop and R&B! Then they'd come across into the house, give me the track and I'd sit in the kitchen writing lyrics and melodies with my mum. So it was, like, 'You guys do you, and I'll do me - then we'll put it together'. And that's the way it worked. I also went down to the river on my own with a pen and paper and write in the grass by the river. Which was a good way to do it, actually, The whole project is about Mother Nature. It's supposed to be from her perspective.


    Just ten days after they came together - and following a powerful co-production from all five band members - the Mama Earth sessions were over. And yet, you sense that the story of this fascinating band is only just beginning. Impulsive, dynamic and sometimes downright dangerous, this is an album unlike anything else in the five musicians' respective CVs, unprecedented in the clinical modern music scene - and sure to make waves upon its release. I guess this album is essentially how I think of music, considers Sawhney. It was all about being open to the moment. I think that's really what I loved about this project. To me, Mama Earth is what music should be about, really...

    Django And Jimmie

    Django & Jimmie, the new studio album collaboration from Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, two of the founding fathers of American outlaw country music. The legendary singer-songwriters join forces and reignite the musical chemistry that made Pancho & Lefty a honky-tonk blockbuster and America's #1 Country Album following its release in January 1983. The success of Pancho & Lefty opened the doors for a number of successful follow-up projects including 1987's Seashores Of Old Mexico album, 2007's Last Of The Breed, with Ray Price.


    Django & Jimmie premieres 14 brand-new studio recordings including: "Django & Jimmie," a duel tribute to jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers, country music's mythic "Singing Brakeman"; "It's All Going To Pot," a rollicking anthem for the emerging 21st century cannabis culture; the reflective and meditative "Live This Long"; "Missing Ol' Johnny Cash," a homage to country music's original Man in Black featuring guest vocals from Bobby Bare; a sublime interpretation of Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"; and the future country classic "Unfair Weather Friend,"


    Among the 14 essential recordings on Django & Jimmie, Nelson and Haggard each pay musical tribute to the other through heartfelt solo performances: Willie singing Merle's "Somewhere Between" and Merle covering Willie's "Family Bible."

    First Rays of the New Rising Sun (Awaiting Repress)

    Cut from the Analog Masters by Legendary Engineer George Marino at Sterling Sound and Pressed on 180-gram Vinyl at RTI!


    First-Ever Audiophile Edition of this Seminal Collection, Hendrix's Final Studio Album!


    The Hendrix Family is Committed to Bringing you the Best Sound Quality Possible: Do Not Miss This Collection!


    Set Joins Exquisitely Remastered Versions of Are You Experienced?, Axis: Bold As Love, Electric Ladyland, and the previously unreleased Valleys of Neptune!


    Hendrix Has NEVER Sounded Better on Any Format or Pressing!


    First Rays Of The New Rising Sun, the last graceful gesture by pioneering guitarist Jimi Hendrix, is the first album prepared under the supervision of his family. It compiles 17 songs whose creation span from March of 1968 to the last sessions at Electric Lady Studios in August of 1970, and which Hendrix inteded for release on this album, which was being made at the time of his tragic death. The material finds Hendrix expanding upon the parameters of his voice, concentrating on his singing while also embracing soul music more than he had on his other recordings. Hence, listeners hear funkier, bluesier, and R&B-slanted elements on this staggering set, which in no way comes off as a cheaply thrown-together posthumous release. Rather, given the level of experimental psychedelic exploration and dreamlike tones throughout, First Rays of the New Rising Sun rightly takes its place as Hendrix's final studio album. And it's never sounded so amazing.


    Mastered from the original analog tapes, cut by legendary engineer George Marino on upgraded equipment at Sterling Sound, and pressed on 180-gram virgin vinyl at RTI, this LP is a sonic knockout on par with the very best audiophile recordings. It's no wonder that this release helps spearhead Legacy Recordings' unprecented 2010 Jimi Hendrix Catalog Project of reissues and new releases from the greatest guitar player in history. Albums don't get more essential than this.


    Originally released in 1997, First Rays Of The New Rising Sun boasts many of Hendrixs most creative musical achievements, including Night Bird Flying, Angel, Dolly Dagger, Hey Baby (New Rising Sun), and In From The Storm. Finally, here is the link that connects Hendrix's involvement with the Isley Brothers with his own groundbreaking solo fare, now on a truly glorious-sounding pressing. An absolute must for any music fan.

    Bashed Out

    This Is The Kit is the much beloved musical project of Kate Stables, born in England and based in Paris. Bashed Out is her band's third album, the result of an extended period collaboration with the record's producer Aaron Dessner (Sharon Van Etten, Local Natives). Dessner--the co-founder of the Brassland label--is best known for his work in The National. Indeed, the backing band he gathered for Bashed Out combines the talents of This Is The Kit's touring members (Rozi Plain, Jesse Vernon, Jamie Whitby-Coles), alongside a number of session players drawn from the Brooklyn music scene: Bryce Dessner, Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The Gloaming), Matt Barrick (The Walkmen) and Ben Lanz (Beirut, The National) all made key instrumental contributions. This music is honest, human and humane-a folky-lovely slow-rumble. It's rock but of the hangover-friendly, stoner variety; it's folk but at a groovy speed. As notable as the music, however, is front woman Kate Stables, whose voice hearkens back to the classic singer-songwriter era--her distinctive, cutting vocals up front in the mix. It's a self-confidence gained since her previous album, 2011's Wriggle Out the Restless, which made her band a minor institution in the United Kingdom, especially on the radio which has embraced the group. This Is The Kit has received across the board support from BBC 6 DJs Lauren Laverne, Radcliffe & Maconie, Marc Riley, Cerys Matthews, and Mary Anne Hobbs--receiving further play from BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, Jen & Ally, and Phil Taggart. Wonderful wonderful stuff, said DJ and Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, before arguing their last album should have made the Mercury Prize shortlist. The Line of Best Fit has already called This Is The Kit an essential fixture of British folk music for the past 10 years one of a handful of truly innovate songwriters working with the British folk template today. In America, however, the band is just building up to their breakout moment. Bruce Warren, program director at influential American AAA station WXPN has praised Stables' "warm and gorgeous voice" and we expect similar notices to come across on this new LP. From Kate's earliest year growing up in the UK town of Winchester, she learned that great art takes time. In some ways the place I grew up is defined by being a Roman Saxon medieval cathedral city, she explains. They started building the Winchester Cathedral a thousand years ago and they've been working on it ever since. It's an exciting moment to join This Is The Kit's continuing musical evolution into a synesthetic, shape-shifting entity-rooted in folk but encompassing elements of psychedelia, alternative rock, and electronic textures and sensibilities.

    Temples of Boom

    With this album Cypress Hill turned towards a more tranquil, sedate, slower, spooky sound with beats. The dark mood of this album reflects the strife within the band during this era, when member Sen Dog temporarily left the band to pursue other projects.


    On this album both Wu-Tang Clan members RZA and U-God make appearances on Killa Hill Niggas. Also notable was track No Rest For The Wicked which ignited the feud between Cypress Hill and rapper Ice Cube, who they claimed, stole material from the band. At the time this album was well received by critics worldwide.


    Q - 4 Stars - Excellent - The production is sophisticated, incorporating Indian sitar and sloping, almost psychedelic bass grooves to create a vaguely threatening ambient hardcore.
    Melody Maker - Bloody Essential - resonates with freakish cheese-wire paranoia a gobsmacking paradox of expansive claustrophobia. The funk patters like an erratic heartbeat, the voices are stretched to bursting with menace and loathing and mockery


    Music On vinyl is proud to announce yet another Cypress Hill classic which has easily stood the test of time.
