Record Store Day Drop 1

Slowdive, Philip Glass, Sugarhill Gang, Fuktronic, Golden Earring, and Batmobile.

This Saturday we're celebrating the first part of Record Store Day with a bundle of fantastic releases. RSD Drop 1 includes the self-titled Slowdive EP, which received praise from music critics and was actually their original demo. Besides we have the 12 track journey Fuktronic, the brainchild of Jimmy Urine (Mindless Self Indulgence ), and Serj Tankian (System Of A Down). Another great title is The Essential, a magnificent collection of music by one of the most important composer of our time, Philip Glass. Hip Hop trio Sugarhill Gang is known for their massive 1979 hit "Rapper's Delight", which is included in the original 7-inch version as a bonus track on their self-titled album. The 7-inch Big Bat A-Go-Go contains two energetic reworked tracks by Batmobile and will be followed by a 10-inch later this year on MOV. Last but not least we have a special never released before 7-inch of Radar Love by the Golden Earring, containing the original UK single version and the Moontan LP version of this hit.

Take a look at this page for a complete overview of all our RSD 2020 releases.
