To celebrate the release of Kev Beadle’s latest compilation for BBE Records you are invited to join him with DJ Harv and Nick Hosier playing some quality jazz goodness on one of the best sound systems in London. Admission is FREE, so get there early……..
Created by music industry legend, MMO Music Group CEO and true godfather of karaoke (but that’s another story) Irv Kratka, alongside producer Eric Kriss, Inner City Records was founded in 1976. During its decade or so in existence, the label put together a formidable catalogue of jazz music and was voted Record Label Of The Year in 1979 by the International Jazz Critics Poll. As well as ‘classic jazz’, the label also gave a platform to more avant-garde material and dabbled in the emerging ‘jazz fusion’ sounds of the day.
Inner City boasted a particularly fervent fan-base in London, where many of its releases found a home within the sweaty underground dance clubs of Soho and Convent Garden back in the early 80s. Fittingly enough, London DJ and tastemaker Kev Beadle is the man chosen to put together this very special compilation of the imprint’s finest moments.

Lars Behrenroth is a name that is synonymous with delivering ‘real’ house music to the masses. The 5 Years of Deeper Shades album is global collective of up and coming and established producers who have mastered the art of creating deep house blends. The album is a master class, it charters a five year journey through; from, Afro, tribal, jazz infused to hypnotic drum loops, spiritual deepness, and inspirational samples like the use of the Martin Luther King I have a dream speech in Pete Blas Promise Land.
This album consists of the songs that you would hear on the dance floor, the type that stays in your mind, the songs you look for but are not easy to find. It is like being given 31 exclusive dub plates. There are too many tracks that will strike cords with the listener; for me the fore mentioned Pete Blas Promised Land, I miss the things with it’s haunting vocals send a shiver of delight up my spine, and the previously unreleased Happy Days by the 60 Hertz Project which radiates organ filled joy and yes happiness.
An album with integrity, there are no compromises here just the best quality music made by people who have nothing but love for the scene.
5 Years of Deeper Shades is a reference point for all of those who are passionate about music, and who are looking for something out of the ordinary.
It is already receiving acclamation from well respected DJs and Producers here are some of the comments.
