Aural Imbalance | Tunes & Chips June 01 2017

Ahead of his new EP on As Shadows Pass, we caught up with Aural Imbalance inside his local chippy, crispins, to ask the real questions.

Distributed Worldwide by Unearthed "Junglist Movement" Official Merchandise May 25 2017

Original & Official, High Quality Merchandise

Established in 1998, Aerosoul is the original supplier of the World famous "Junglist Movement" clothing brand. For the first time since its inception they have teamed up with a distributor and Unearthed are proud to represent it.

Founder & Designer Leke Adesoye founded the brand after training at the London College of Fashion, bringing together two of his driving passions, music, in the form of underground jungle, hip-hop, soul and breakbeat, and fashion, realising his dream of creating an Exclusive urban streetwear company. Throughout the next 17 years, Aerosoul has established itself and has gone on to achieve more than any other similar brand. The defining ethos of Aerosoul is combining music and fashion, by capturing the energy of the music by design, branding, and ultimately, clothing. Original, highly sought-after exclusive urban streetwear is the result, including the now-iconic Junglist Movement t-shirt. The brand has taken on an international presence, and is worn across the globe by the very biggest names in urban music and beyond, and famously immortalised in the cult-classic 90's film Human Traffic.

We will be stocking and distributing the full range of Aerosoul merchandise. 

All stock comes poly-bagged, re-labelled by hand and comes with a Aerosoul / Junglist Movement pin-badge. It's worth emphasising that this is a super high quality product, the T-shirts themselves and the quality of the print means they will stand the test of time.

Tinnitus | A solution for the Ravers Curse? April 10 2017

I've had on again, off again Tinnitus for years.

Way too much time spent down the front at raves sticking my head in the bass bins, followed up with a decade or more of attending a gig or two every week.


Unearthed Store Updates April 04 2017

This week we have made some improvements to the site. It's been a while since we have modified the appearance of the site, but the following updates have been in the works for a little while.

Latest Site Updates Include:

  • Thumbnail images related to products reduced in size
  • Best Sellers section added to homepage
  • Recently Viewed & Featured Recommendations section added to genre pages
  • Customers who Bought this also bought.. section added to product pages

The thinking behind reducing the size of the thumbnails was simply to create a better navigation experience on the site. The ability to basically fit more content on the page and allow people to quickly scan through latest releases a little bit easier.

As time progresses the 'Best Sellers' and 'Recommendations' will improve in accuracy based on customer habits. So initially what you are seeing in these sections may not be a fair reflection of sales habits until there is more data going through the system.

unearthed best sellers

Hope you like the updates.
If you have any comments/criticisms or improvements you would like to see then do get in touch with us.

Thanks as ever for your support!

Unearthed Sounds now accept online payments in the form of Bitcoin for all purchases from our website. In a bold move we have decided to provide the option due to the ever increasing popularity of this form of currency.

Pre-orders This Week [Our Picks] August 10 2016

We've picked out five tasty morsels from our new Pre-orders available this week. Some of which may not already be on your radar. We like to dig a little deeper now and then to uncover those gems. Here's the list to wrap your ears around:

      1. Datach’I – System [2x12" LP]

        "After a decade’s absence, spent working in commercial sound design, New York based electronic musician and producer Joseph Fraioli returns to his Datach’i alias for a brand new album entitled ‘System’. Featuring 16 tracks of beautiful yet unsettling electronic music recorded exclusively on a Eurorack Modular synth".
        Genre: Electronica
        Label: Timesig Released: 19th August
        Listen | Order
      2. V/A - New Moon EP
        V/A - New Moon EP
        The New Moon EP is the debut vinyl release from Next Phase Records. It follows in the same tradition as their previous CD and cassette compilations delivering diver- se break beat driven music supplied in bespoke hand crafted artwork. New Moon consists of four alternate takes on the drum and bass art form unrestricted by BPM. Cuts from Phuture-T, Double O, Infest & Tim Reaper and Leonux
        Genre: Drum & Bass / Breakbeat
        Label: Next Phase Records Released: 9th September
        Listen | Order
      3. Daze - Leisure Complex
        Daze - Leisure Complex
        New recruit to the UTTU family Daze drops 4 bangers oozing with old-skool rave sensibilities. This one's for the whistle crew!
        Genre: Bass Music / Dance
        Label: Unknown to the Unknown Released: 2nd September
        Listen | Order
      4. Spokes - Flight EP
        Spokes - Flight EP
        Spokes returns to Coyote Records with new EP, ‘Flight’. Consisting of four tracks, ‘Flight’ showcases an evocative, maturing sound and Spokes’ flair for original sound design — as testified by the dwindling space and eerie, pitched-up vocals of NYC singer-songwriter, Anna Folwell, utilised on opener, ‘Failed State’. The grand, ceremonious intro to square-wave grime flip, ‘Mercurial’, is also a highlight, while title-track, ‘Flight’ — a dreamy, washed out, beat-tape cut — again sees Spokes explore new dynamics to his sound. Latest Coyote signee, Miami-based producer Marks, also makes his bow for the label on ‘Flight’, turning in a crunchy, clapped-out remix of the title-track, ahead of his full debut EP in 2017.
        Genre: Electronica / Grime / Bass
        Label: Coyote Records Released: 19th August
        Listen | Order
      5. Youandewan - Luna Via
        Youandewan - Luna Via
        Youandewan makes his Voyage debut with Luna Via, a three track EP sitting comfortably at home, above the ether. The opening piece is spread across the A side, with two separate interpretations, 'Ciel' and 'Vessel'. 'Ciel' is the faster, uplifting predecessor to 'Vessel', which remains slow and nostalgic. On the flip, a touch of familiarity with the antonymously named Stranger (Glad Eye), a surging take on house music and Youandewan's various influences. Luna Via is also accompanied by a full sleeve interpretation by Melbourne's Sprinkles.
        Genre: House / Electronica
        Label: Voyage Released: 5th September
        Listen | Order

Tunes & Chips | Louie Foamplate September 16 2015

Crucial Recordings proudly presents the third release on the label – one whose stock is growing and growing. The 7.5 EP comes courtesy of Brighton-based producer Foamplate who has already earned the support of big names like Distance, Mala, J:Kenzo and N Type.

To celebrate the release we sat down with man like Louie Foamplate, and asked the chip based questions.


Tunes & Chips | Sleeper, Crucial Recordings July 30 2015

I grew up in Coventry...There was not much of a music scene happening around there at the time, although there is a strong history of reggae and drum & bass.

Tunes & Chips | This time with Om Unit July 09 2015

...The turnablism came in later when I found the discipline helped me come out of a rough patch, it's quite hermitic learning to scratch, most people you meet who are into cutting are beautiful weirdos as a result of years of being indoors making weird sounds with their hands.

Danny Scrilla takes the Tunes and Chips Challenge June 12 2015

The label that introduced him to the world with his stunning ‘Flash Powder’ EP in 2012 now gives you his ‘True Sight’ EP. Including a collaboration with label boss Om Unit, drawing on the hardcore continuum and regression in modernist music True Sight’s soul-infused electronics and vintage sound should prove future-proof for the elusive soundboy.

Paxton Fettel takes the Tunes & Chips Challenge - Everything stays the same May 05 2015

Copenhagen's most infamous export Paxton Fettel joined us recently for a chat. He is over in the UK at the moment promoting his new LP on Greta Cottage Workshop, Everything stays the same, and chugging around Dartmoor in a pickup truck.

Edmondson Launches Lissoms Imprint May 02 2015

After his first releases on Hypercolour & Akkord’s EMF label garnered plays and support from Radio 1 to Berghain, Edmondson spent the latter half of 2014 further experimenting and refining his sound. Nocturnal 92 kicks off the first of a slew of releases on his new imprint, Lissoms.

D.K. and Antinote discuss the new record (and chips of course) March 11 2015

ANTINOTE is a new one on us - Care to tell a bit more?  Zaltan, Long story short, we created Antinote three years ago in Paris the 11th in a wine bar called Le Baron Rouge. I met IUEKE in that place, drinking wine, talking about records etc. He’s what we can call an icon in the record digging world.


Unearthed Sounds | 2.0 February 28 2015

We are moving to a larger premises next week! We have been at our current shop for just shy of a year now, and it has not been without its restrictions. Those of you who have been here will have seen the giant jenga puzzle that we faced when getting stock ready to ship for our customers.

Aural Imbalance takes the Tunes & Chips Challenge February 09 2015

We are proud of our South Coast roots around here, so it seems like we should fly the flag for our region. Lets shine our torch of truth on a proper South Coast Legend, and one of the nicest blokes in D&B (plus many other genres besides) Mr Aural Imbalance.


Jane Fitz talks Tunes and Chips January 14 2015

Next in our infrequent Q&A sessions with people who we like, we are proud to present the lovely Jane Fitz. She used to be a well kept secret, but these days word seems to be getting out to a MUCH wider audience about her varied DJ sets and her production skills with music partner Dom (Invisible Menders)
