ELECTRO 2 ART PRINT (Edition of 50)

Available: Wednesday 23rd October from the Street Sounds Gallery http://www.streetsoundsgallery.com

Following the phenomenal success of the Electro 1 Art Print which sold out within 3 weeks of going on sale, we are delighted and proud to present the Electro 2 Art Print (Edition of 50). So many people have been waiting for this! The Electro 1 Art print was so heavily over-subscribed and we are still receiving daily enquiries to buy these superb collector’s ‘works of art’.

Electro 2 was for many a favourite and an essential album to have in any Street Sounds Electro collection. As the Electro 1 Art Print, the Electro 2 cover art was also reconstructed over several months from the original layouts, in the same way as the original artwork was created back in the day.

Once again, this unique print will be limited to only 50, be numbered and individually signed by Morgan Khan, founder of Street Sounds. As before, both framed and unframed options will be available.

As previously, we are offering a convenient ‘Easy Pay’ option.

The Limited Edition ELECTRO 1 PLATINUM FRAMED DISC is NOW also available to order.

'The most exclusive record you will ever own!'

Faithful reproduction of Electro 1 LP (12”)

Aluminium plaque with personal engraving option

Certificate of authenticity

Limited Edition of 20 only

We are also proud to present a brand new, highly collectible, limited edition, ‘Platinum’ effect disc of the original and iconic Electro 1 album. Electro 1 was officially released in 1983 and has never been officially re-pressed. The platinum effect disc is a precise re-repressing of side one of Electro 1. We have actually re-cut (remastered) the album and have replicated as carefully as possible the original 1983 Street Sounds Electro 1 pressing.

The record label has also been faithfully reproduced to the very highest standards.

The aluminium plaque may be personally engraved with your name or left blank i.e. ‘Presented to …’ This is a free no cost option. (Engraving details will be asked for after your order is placed).

Each framed disc is hand assembled and a certificate of authenticity is sent with each disc.

We look forward to seeing you in the Gallery soon!

‘SUMMER LAUNCH PARTY’ - EARLY BIRD & limited VIP tickets on sale NOW!!!

(Dated April 7th, 2014)

This is going to the most unique party, with a carnival atmosphere! Celebrate the launch of Street Sounds Radio and the legacy and heritage of Urban and Dance music.

Event: STREET SOUNDS RADIO - SUMMER LAUNCH PARTY

Date: Saturday 12th July 2014

Venue: Woolston Manor Golf & Country Club (Essex. Details below)

Door: 14.00 to 23.00 hours (All-dayer)

The Street Sounds Radio ‘Summer Launch Party’ is going to be the hottest ticket in town! Because of the importance of this event, we have gone for a terrific & exclusive venue that is more up-close & personal (with easy transport links and great drinks prices). So be warned, with only 500 capacity, this is going to be a road block!

The Street Sounds Radio ‘Summer Launch Party’ is an ALL-DAY PARTY - 3 areas of entertainment, including a pool-side BBQ! Drink a Bud, groove to the music and eat from the BBQ!

A truly incredible line-up of DJs, playing all the great music you expect from a Street Sounds event AND we are going to have some very special live performances too!!! ALSO, lots of Street Sounds goodies to be given away during the day!

To reflect the ethos of STREET SOUNDS RADIO, the launch party will be a celebration / festival of different types of music of black origin. This will include the many different music genres prevalent from the 40’s right up to today, across the three rooms (well actually that would be incorrect, as the 3rd area is not a room, but an outdoor pool area). The day will be a homage to vintage-retro through to Hip Hop, Electro, Funk, Soul, Jazz-Funk, R’n’B, House etc.

PLUS, the ‘Summer Launch Party’ will also coincide with the release of a brand NEW Street Sounds album!

STREET SOUNDS RADIO - Coming May 2014

(Dated December 5th, 2013)

Hi to the Street Sounds family,

I have some fantastic and very exciting news.

STREET SOUNDS RADIO will be launched in May 2014!

I wanted to let YOU know the news first, prior to the official Press Release being sent out in a couple of weeks.

I first started thinking about Street Sounds Radio about 3 years ago when driving down from Glasgow to London and realised how sanitised and stale the airwaves were. I heard the same handful of records throughout the day and what I heard made me realise how lucky I was to have lived through the golden age of radio. Our airwaves are controlled by a few corporations who spend millions on computer systems, which efficiently program the music we listen to, thereby targeting the ‘hit’ music appropriate to the audience demographics that will generate them the most income from advertisers. What bull! Of course there are other specialist stations doing their thang, but nothing will sound like Street Sounds Radio; ‘sound of the street’.

What if YOU could turn on the radio and hear YOUR favourite music all day? What if YOU could be part of an idea, a vision so exciting and innovative that 10 years from now you can say I was part of that? What if YOU could be part of a music revolution? Well, YOU CAN!!!

Street Sounds Radio is launching in May 2014. The station will broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Street Sounds Radio is YOUR station…YOUR music! We want you to help us by telling us what you want to hear and if you want to contribute in other ways, we'll try and find a way to make that happen. We will be unveiling the Street Sounds Radio logo, brand new website and dedicated Facebook Page shortly; holding pages only are there for now.

Street Sounds Radio will initially be Internet only (http://www.streetsoundsradio.com). You will be able to listen to us on your phone, notebook and tablet via TuneIn Radio free app, or the Street Sounds Radio custom app, which will be available for the three major mobile phone platforms; IOS, Android and Windows. The individual show Podcasts will be available to stream or download. We also have plans to expand to DAB, or SKY, or even both.

What will you hear on Street Sounds Radio? Well I am sure the ‘Heads of Music’ of every radio station in the land are reading this, so let’s just say, this is Street Sounds Radio; we will only be playing music of black origin/street music and will only be finalising the full schedule after we have talked to and listened to what you have to say. However, the station will most definitely champion new talent and music. We have already secured the talents of some of the most original, creative and electrifying DJs! The station will also embrace domestic and international communities and their music. Good programming is like good record A&R and we have vinyl running through our veins. I can tell you to prepare for a revolution in broadcasting!

To coincide with the launch in May, we will be holding the most awesome ‘hoedown’ ever! The Street Sounds Radio launch party will be THE place to be! You’ve all been to at least one of our events and so we don’t need to tell you the unique and special vibe that only a Street Sounds event has.  

Street Sounds Radio will be the ‘sound of the street’ and the only way we can achieve this, is to hear what you want; so please let us have your ideas about content and tell us what YOU want Street Sounds Radio to be! Please email us at: ideas@streetsoundsradio.com or visit the Street Sounds radio website and use the web form to contact us: http://www.streetsoundsradio.com

Thank you for your friendship, loyalty and support.

Respect & love,

Morgan Khan

Founder of Street Sounds

*** NEWS UPDATE ***

In the meantime, to whet your appetite, the Street Sounds Radio Show, presented by Andy Smith and moi will be returning to the airwaves with a Christmas special. Andy and I can’t wait! We have been inundated with messages since the last Street Sounds Radio show on Solar which was only just over 3 weeks ago! Believe me, we miss you as much as you miss us. Thank you xx  

In the interim period, from January 2014 until the launch in May, the Street Sounds Radio Show will be returning as a weekly show/Podcast; all the great music, craziness you expect and weekly updates about all things Street Sounds. Hear it first on the Street Sounds Radio Show!    

Street Sounds - 'The Future'. A personal message...

(Dated November 9th, 2013)

Hi,

I understand how busy you are but would appreciate a few minutes of your valuable time. Thank you.

It has been such an exciting and eventful time for Street Sounds. Just under 2 weeks ago Street Sounds held its first regional Roadshow at Voodoo in Essex and if you were there, damn, can we party! In the last 2 years we have held the UK fresh Reunion, 30th Anniversary, Summer Ball and of course Essex Roadshow. Many of you have attended all 4 events, been part of making ‘history’ and of course contributed to the most exhilarating evenings, that have that certain Street Sounds magic. These events have seen performances by some of the most iconic artists ever including; Fatback Band, Rose Royce, Shannon, Sugarhill Gang, Crown Heights Affair, Newcleus, Captain Rock, Leee John of Imagination, Arthur Baker, Mantronix, The B-Boys, Phil Fearon & Galaxy, Davy DMX, Fonda Rae, David Joseph amongst many others.

The recent release of Crucial Electro 4, which has been our most successful album since Street Sounds re-launched, the overwhelming demand for the art prints and Electro 1 ‘Platinum’ framed disc from the Street Sounds Gallery and the announcement from the guys at 80’s Casual Classics, that the Street Sounds Electro T-shirt was their biggest selling T-shirt ever, are just further evidence that the Street Sounds label is part of a special and growing family.

It is your support, loyalty and love that has seen Street Sounds re-establish itself as a dynamic, exciting label & event promoter and I would like to believe championing the music and memories we cherish so very much. At the recent Soul Survivors Awards 2013, Street Sounds were voted by the public, winners of 'Best Record Label' and the Street Sounds Radio Show voted runner-up ‘Best Soul Radio Show’. These awards are such an achievement. You voted for us, THANK YOU!!! I hope and will always strive to maintain our uniqueness, innovation, excitement and always stay ‘Fresh’!

‘Nothing stays the same’ …How true this saying is! I once said that I cannot promise you that Street Sounds is the fountain of youth, but you have my continued pledge to release the very best music; compilations and new artist projects (more on this later). The most important lesson I have learnt over the ?? years, (MANY years!) is to only release records that I am passionate about and to maintain the high quality that you expect from the Street Sounds brand. Many of you have grown up with Street Sounds and others are new to the brand. Damn 1982, seems like only yesterday! We share the same love of music, events and memories of an era which shaped most of our lives. Regardless of our own very different backgrounds, lives and circumstances, we share this very same feeling about the Street Sounds brand. I am so happy to be able to tell you that we have the busiest ever calendar ahead of us, new compilations (yes finally the back catalogue; Electro 1 and UK Electro Deluxe Editions being the first) and artist releases; including the brand new Kurtis Mantronik (aka Mantronix) album, roadshows and other events across the UK, delicious new art works in the Gallery, fresh new clothing designs from the 80’s Casual Classics website AND a new home for the Street Sounds Radio Show. Today will be the last broadcast of the Street Sounds Radio Show on Solar Radio. It seems that the show has become an established part of the ‘scene’ and we have seen its audiences grow and grow. I and Andy Smith would like to offer the management of Solar Radio our deepest thanks for allowing us to ‘do our thang’. It has been a wonderful time and experience being at Solar. Sometimes when I listen back to the shows, I cringe and ask myself, did we really say those things ha ha! I am not at liberty to confirm the rumours as to where we are going, but I promise you will be the first to know!  

Other projects also in the pipeline are as mentioned, the new album from Kurtis Mantronix and we may need you help on this?! A Street Sounds TV show (working title ‘The Street’), and the Street Sounds ‘Musical’!!! Both the TV show and musical have been in development for over a year. (NO, not the cheesy West End musicals…hey we’re Street Sounds and will do it our way, just be a patient).  

I sincerely believe that the Street Sounds brand is as relevant today as it was in the 80’s.  This I am sure of because of you believing in us and showing your support in the most tangible ways; buying the albums, clothing and art prints, coming to the events and the huge numbers of downloads each week of the Street Sounds Radio Show. Also our Facebook groups/pages are receiving more friend requests than we have ever experienced.

I have a tremendous sense of pride about what the label has achieved and optimism about where we are going. I know I have said this before, but running Street Sounds is a wonderful honour and I feel privileged that 30 plus years on, the heritage and legacy of Street Sounds has kept us together. I also have an energy that I have not had for a hell of a long time (ask my girlfriend lol).

HOWEVER, I would really value your input if you have ideas for album releases, clothing designs, ideas for the Gallery and suggestions for where to have regular Roadshows across the country. Yes, we are coming to a town near you! Over the next few days I will be posting questionnaires on Facebook about the new clothing designs and we are even holding a competition for one of you to design a Street Sounds T-shirts!! Please do not hesitate in contacting me anytime, with any ideas. I value each and every comment, critique and suggestion.

I know that I have a responsibility to you, to ensure that the future of the Street Sounds label continues to grow, as well as embrace a new generation and ignite their passions and loyalty. May I use a Morganism, to sign off; ‘Street Sounds is the soundtrack to our…LIVES!’

My deepest respect & love,

Morgan Khan
