Shimon - Flava / First Charge [180g 12" Vinyl]
Release Date: 22nd January 2021
The original sister label to Ram Records from the old Ram HQ studio in Essex, Liftin Spirit Records now celebrates it’s 25th year with a special ‘RELOADED’ limited vinyl series of remastered classics, alongside rare and previously unreleased tracks since the beginning in1992.
DATs from artists such as Andy C, Ant Miles, Shimon, Joint Venture, Interrogator and Red One have been located in the archives. Also from the Ram & Liftin HQ came tracks for the Deep Seven label in 1993 and all these rare DAT masters have been located and now re-cut by Simon, the original Ram & Liftin vinyl masterer at ‘The Exchange’. Initially, Deep Seven remasters will present on a printed white label and unreleased tracks will have a black label.
Whilst scouring through the Ram and Liftin Spirit master DATs, we have come across one of the most requested and unreleased tracks that never made it to vinyl. Shimon’s 1995 track ‘Flava’ is now available to own after 26 years of obscurity. This Amen smasher that preceded ‘Nightflight’ also comes with a track that forms an early incarnation of what eventually morphed into ‘Recharge’. This has been aptly named ‘First Charge'. This release is anticipated to be one of the hottest and in demand slabs of wax emerging from the whole of the Liftin Spirit Reloaded series.
