KAB Super Record Grip - Push On Record Clamp (On Sale)The newly redesigned KAB super record grip was designed to replace and improve upon the PIG clamp originally supplied with the Revolver brand turntables. This new design features a 2 piece precision molded frame, spring rubber insert and UHMW polyethylene non marring contact surface. This is especially useful on Rega brand turntables and others where there is very little spindle to grab on to.
The KAB Super Record Grip reduces resonance and acoustic vibration of the record itself, freeing the stylus to do its intended job of tracing the groove. The result is better focus and detail to the soundstage.
The Super record grip attaches quickly; by turning with slight pressure, it walks down the spindle and meets the record surface.
Note: For easier use, the center hole can be lubricated with a diluted solution of 5% Armor All® and alcohol, swabbed with Qtip®.
The built-in bubble level shows turntable level at a glance to within 1 degree of accuracy.
Spring reinforced rubber insert holds onto the turntable spindle firmly.
The built in bubble level allows a quick check of turntable level. A level turntable balances the forces of the needle in the groove.
When the needle is resting in the record groove, the entire record surface behaves as a microphone picking up vibrations from the air and the turntable below. Damping the record surface reduces the affect of these added vibrations to the needle's already difficult job of reading the groove.
The really great features to take note of with the KAB super record grip is the ease of use and cost effectiveness.
The super record grip represents great value. Yet it is quite good at what it does and even has the added benefit of showing level at a glance, each time you use it. Keeping with the KAB philosophy that more is better, but it needn't cost more!
One issue to be sensitive to is turntables with light floating spring suspensions. You will have to push down some while applying the super record grip. It does not rely on weight. (It only weighs 2 Oz) Be sure your turntable can Bottom Out safely. If this is a concern, consult your turntable maker first.
[In our opinion, if you can bottom out safely, the super grip is a better solution still over clamps that rely on weight, since they will change the operating height of your platter.]$38.00Record Clamp Buy Now

Second Release From Swedish Electronic Pop Mastermind Erick Berglund AKA ceo, Formerly Of The Tough Alliance
The second stanza by The Tough Alliance mastermind and Sincerely Yours (jj, Air France) don, "the pimp, the whore, the John," Eric Berglund, is here.
Wonderland comes three short years after the ceo debut, White Magic, Berflund's stepping out, a decandent record of white gold riches and a life more
extraordinary, punctuated by highlights like Come With Me, Illuminata and the title track.
Wonderland, on the other hand is on some whole other level, a Technicolor elucidation of a fantasy ideal, a place in a dream from which you never
awake. The record stretches and threatens to buckle under the kind of dense emotional weight we only catch glimpses of in the world we know, which is
perhaps why Berglund had to find one in which these feelings can thrive. It's one that dives deep into the trenches of despair while also overflowing with a
kind of purity and joy one can only hope to experience in real life.
Production, aided by Dan Lissvik and Kendal Johansson, glimmers and glides as if from a futuristic utopian pop nirvana, touching on modern rap (Mirage),
lush, orchestral instrumentation (Harakiri, In a Bubble on a Stream) and gypsy trance (Wonderland.) There are details that enhance the enchantment, a
touch of strings here, a smattering of sampling there, but none of this would matter were it not for the songs so formidable, the hooks unassailable and the
extremely tender core.
Make no mistake about it, with Wonderland, ceo's poured every ounce of his heart and soul into this fantastical reality.1.Whorehouse

Audio Desk Systeme's Vinyl Cleaning Machine Pro (On Sale)

...The most effective, easy-to-use record-cleaning machine I've ever tried.
- Michael Fremer, Stereophile, June 2012
Cleaning Time: 5 minutes
Size: 13w x 8 d x 10.7 h (33cm w x 20cm d x 27cm h)
Weight: 12lbs (5.5kg)
Cleaning Solution: 4.5 liters (1.2 gal) of distilled water added to 20ml of cleaning concentrate.
The Vinyl Cleaner PRO is the next generation, upgraded version of the award-winning ultrasonic LP cleaning system. Incorporating five years of evolutionary enhancements in addition to important upgrades to internal component parts, the Vinyl Cleaner PRO offers better features and performance, and also promises better reliability.
Features of the new Vinyl Cleaner PRO include better, quieter drying, a new premium motor, an upgraded pump with ceramic bearings, and improvements to the electronic control system including a dry-only option.
The Audio Desk Systeme Vinyl Cleaner Pro is the latest version of the first and only record cleaning machine that incorporates an ultrasonic cleaning cycle in addition to a more conventional mechanical cleaning via bi-directional rotating microfiber cleaning drums, and the result is the cleanest LP's ever. Unlike other record cleaners the ultrasonic Vinyl Cleaner bursts millions of microscopic bubbles off the surface of the record all the way to the bottom of the groove, where no fiber is fine enough to reach. And among LP cleaners the Audio Desk System Vinyl Cleaner is unique in using filtered air for drying, rather than one of the static-inducing suction systems employed by other record cleaning machines.
This vinyl record cleaner is fully automatic - just put the LP in the slot, push the button, and come back in 6 minutes (or tomorrow!) for a thoroughly cleaned and dried LP (both sides). Whole new layers of inner detail and air are revealed in the recordings, and of course most surface noise is eliminated.
Comes with 2 vials of a proprietary cleaning fluid developed specifically for this machine. A container of the fluid concentrate plus a gallon of distilled water cleans 150 new LP's, or 100 used LP's.
Records are precious. Not only are they arguably the best-sounding medium for reproduced music, but they often constitute irreplaceable collections. Even with careful handling contamination cannot be avoided in the long term. It is also well known that residual compounds from the LP pressing process obscure inner detail unless removed by cleaning even new records.
Reiner Glass of Audiodesksysteme has developed a professional quality, easy to use record washing machine he call the Vinyl Cleaner. The Vinyl Cleaner is fully automatic. The record is placed perpendicularly from above into the equipment opening and the red activation button is pressed. When the green LED shines, the clean LP can be removed. During the cleaning process rotary cleaning barrels made from a microfiber material move in opposite directions while a unique ultrasonic system carefully and thoroughly removes even the finest contaminants from the grooves. In use the cleaning solution is thoroughly filtered to avoid recontamination of the LP. Two high performance fans guarantee effective drying with quiet operation.
Technical: How can sound clean?
Ultrasonic is sound generated above the human audible level.
A physical effect called cavitation results from the generation of ultrasonic frequencies in a liquid. In this cavitation process ultrasonic compression waves are created by an ultrasonic transducer. When the amplitude of this soundwave increases to a level where the surface tension of the liquid is broken, the fluid will tear apart leaving behind millions of microscopic vacuum bubbles. These vacuum bubbles then rapidly compress or implode creating millions of tiny liquid jets small enough to clean inside the smallest grooves of an LP. This process, also called microagitation, displaces any contaminants on the surface of the LP.$4,499.00 $3,999.00 Save $500.00 (11%)Cleaning Machine - 4 Colors Available Buy Now
1992 DeluxePrincess Nokia - aka New York rapper Destiny Frasqueri - has been
releasing music via Youtube and Soundcloud since she was in High School,
and slowly bubbling up on the internet, garnering a rabid fanbase. Last year,

herself, and aligns equally with the values of punk rock and riot
grrl, '90s R&B, and the best of forward-thinking hip-hop. This is powerful,
passionate, outspoken, vibrant modern music with deep roots in both
NYC and rap history.
1992 Deluxe will be released via Rough Trade and is her first ever physical
album; boasting 8 additional brand new songs - her first music since 2016.

EndgameAfter emerging in 2011 via a rapid-fire series of groundbreaking EPs, Brooklyn-based producer Ital (Daniel Martin-McCormick) surprised followers by releasing his debut album "Hive Mind" on Planet Mu in February 2012. The record immediately struck a chord with both critics and fans for its fascinating use of house rhythms to bolster fractured, alien landscapes with a surprisingly tender emotional power. Seemingly unconcerned with dance music orthodoxy and informed by years in the noise-punk underground, his compositions came out of left field, constructed on primitive software with bizarre, culture jamming samples. Dance music in New York was re-emerging after a period of stagnation, and Ital was among the first of a younger wave of producers to invigorate it with a dose of visceral vitality.
Since then, he's remained at the forefront with a remarkable EP for esteemed label Workshop, a collaboration with Hieroglyphic Being and a pair of excellent EPs on his own Lovers Rock imprint. Now Ital has returned to Planet Mu for "Endgame", his most singular and hypnotic work to date.Vertigo-inducing, nuanced and highly evocative, "Endgame" is a delirious pleasure to dive into. The album's textures often explore inviting spaces, only to bring the listener "somewhere uncomfortable, perceiving constant chaos and collapse in the periphery of your vision," as Daniel describes. This is especially evident on the haunting title track, its dizzying reverb lingering while the bottom drops out, leaving the listener suddenly on the edge of a cliff they weren't even aware of, and the glacial shift in "Beacon" from warm, bubbling chords to disconcerting stillness. Meanwhile, throttling techno tracks like Whispers In The Dark & White II burst with undeniably seductive dancefloor energy, each jagged edge and oozing melody uniquely formed. One of his goals from the start was "to keep things liquid. The music had to come from that natural, unforced space." Inspired by recent excursions into psychedelics, "apocalyptic" strains of minimalist composition, and his sense of "eerily ubiquitous post-globalization culture-leveling," "Endgame" is a techno album that teems with ideas. Recorded with a select arsenal of hardware, mixed with M Geddes Gengras at his LA studio and mastered by acclaimed engineer Rashad Becker, the final result is a shimmering blend of his swirling, effects-laden live sets with a deeper, more penetrating emotional and melodic clarity. "Endgame" sees Ital unlocking his own sound and pushing himself to new depths sonically and technically, a figurehead for a strong international community as well as a truly visionary artist in his own right.LP1

With The DeadImport
Supergroup is such an erroneous term - images of bored playboys pissing on their legacy spring to mind - but the members of With The Dead have a history of creating criminally good records as long as your arm. They've all served hard time in the subterranean worlds of Doom and the heaviest forms of Metal and have now reconvened to surpass previous projects. They're back - and this time the aim is To maim.
With The Dead were formed by the founding rhythm section of occultist Doom overloads Electric Wizard: guitarist/bassist Tim Bagshaw and drummer Mark Greening, a pair once notorious for the sheer brute heaviness of their bowel-shaking sound and early extra-curricular activities that involved excess, injury and low-level criminality (arrests for the theft of a crucifix from a church roof and drunkenly robbing an off-licence to name but two). Both have also played together in Ramesses.
Completing the triangle is frontman Lee Dorrian, co-founder of Doom pioneers Cathedral, former frontman with grindcore legends Napalm Death and owner of Rise Above Records, the UK's finest independent purveyors of all sounds heavy and underground, whose stable of bands include Ghost, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, Lucifer, Blood Ceremony and Witchcraft. Having been in business since 1988, Rise Above is also one of the most enduring.
Existing doom-heads will already know that the longstanding relationship between Rise Above and Electric Wizard is one that was fractious and fraught. Much mud has been slung between band, label and former members in recent years, but the With The Dead trio are of the opinion that big words meant little - it's the action that truly counts. And as the fire that is Electric Wizard peters out, With The Dead burn with eyebrow-singeing intensity. With The Dead are heavy. No - scratch that. With The Dead are heavy. H.E.A.V.Y!!! They are a band with teeth and talons.
Like the product of some sort of alchemical alignment or a diabolical modern demon summoned by a whispered incantatory spell, With The Dead formed on All Hallow's Eve 2014. They worked quickly and the result is a six-track, self-titled debut broadside
that draws on the members' rich musical legacy but without ever taking a backward step. Rising like a fecund creature from the fetid bogs of old England, With The Dead is a malevolent beast that lurches and staggers, flattening everything in its path. Guitars moil and curdle, bubbling up through the loam like black tar, while existing fans will surely welcome the return of Dorrian's distinctly hateful vocals.
Any listener will be left battered on the floor, bludgeoned into submission by With The Dead's musical brutality. A new era is upon us.1. Crown of Burning Stars
