Duke Reid, Ministry, soundtracks Deep Impact and Cloud Atlas + win Marvin Gaye Collected
The famous Jamaican record producer Duke Reid founded record label Treasure Isle in the 1960s. His compilation album Here Comes The Duke showcases the talents of some of the giants of the rock steady era. The recordings, all issued during the latter half of '68, demonstrate just why the Duke is widely regarded as the king of the rock steady sound. This release is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on orange coloured vinyl. Ministry's debut album With Sympathy could be considered more synth pop and new wave-influenced in comparison to the Industrial heavy metal style the band developed later during their career. Three singles were pulled from the album: "Work For Love", "I Wanted to Tell Her" and "Revenge", the latter of which got a video. With Sympathy is available as a limited edition of 1500 individually numbered copies on red vinyl.
During the time when James Horner released successful soundtracks like Titanic and The Mask of Zorro another subtle composition appeared, his soundtrack to the movie Deep Impact.

The score for the 2012 science fiction film Cloud Atlas was composed by director Tom Tykwer and his longtime collaborators, Reinhold Heil, and Johnny Klimek.
