R.I.P. to our friend Wayne Smith. First off, he was such a talent. From roots to his game changing digital efforts, he has always been one of those artists that you would just buy his tunes without listening because his name was enough. And as a person, he was just a good guy, an honest friend who was always good for his word -- Humble, straight up guy. So sad. Respect the veteran while they are still here please. Time moves fast and we always miss too much.
Pure ’80s dancehall niceness from Names You Can Trust! Your ears may tell you this is a vintage Jammy’s release or a lost Barry Brown classic, but this irresistible bubbler comes straight from the hotbed of Brooklyn’s roots scene, with production by Victor “Ticklah” Axelrod and vocals by the honey-voiced Brukky, taking time off from his main job as lead singer of Rock Steady revivalists the Frightnrs. An effervescent dub version, eye-grabbing labels and a custom-printed paper sleeve complete another essential release in the NYCT catalog.

*NEW PARK HEIGHTS / DEADLY DRAGON SOUND REISSUES!*
PARK HEIGHTS - DEADLY DRAGON SOUND LINK UP PT. 4 for 2011!
Sluggy Ranks was one of the greatest vocalists of NYC's Digital Renaissance of the 1980s. While he cut brilliant tunes for a variety of producers at the time, we found his work for Delroy Francis and the Park Heights label to simply be stellar. "Prejudice" came out originally on a PARK HEIGHTS 12" and was not included on his LP for the label. For this reissue we are releasing the tune for the first time on 7"vinyl. We cut the stamper with Delroy Francis directly from the original master tapes and pressed it right here in New York in lovely, high quality vinyl!
Yesss the HUGE tune come again when Park Heights - Deadly Dragon Link Up presents ROLAND BURRELL's haunting "DON'T THINK ABOUT TOMORROW" on the same riddim as NUTHEAD's digital roots anthem, "Tenement Yard". This tune had only come out previously on an LP and this is the first time it has appeared on 7". BOOM!!!!!!!

BOOM SHOT! This one going out to all fans of SERIOUS digital roots music. Icho Candy has always been one of Jamaica's most unique singers -- with a string of serious tunes to his credit. From the first time we heard this one -- originally released in 1987 on the Ujama label -- we were hooked. Serious bass, serious lyrics and of course Icho's vocals stirring the whole thing into pure transcendence. We had to get Prince Jazzbo to hunt through his tapes to find this one -- one of the rarest and most killer of the Digital Roots tunes Jazzbo released in the 80s. So now we have it and so shall alla you! This one is limited to 500 pieces and is ONLY available at www.deadlydragonsound.com NUFF RESPECT!
This is the new generation Sound FX Box -- hand made in Japan for Deadly Dragon Sound. This one expands upon our base model with the added feature of built in delay, volume and a pitch knob.
