Acid Jazz Records is a record label based in East London. It takes its name from the acid-jazz subgenre of jazz music for which it is most famously known for producing. Gilles Peterson and Eddie Piller formed the record label in 1987.The label's first signing was singer-songwriter Rob Gallagher's band, Galliano, whichreleased the label's first single "Frederick Lies Still" in 1987, which features a sample of "Freddie's Dead" by Curtis Mayfield. The label was known in its early days for putting on club nights at Camden's Dingwalls featuring artists such as The Night Trains and A Man Called Adam.

In 1989 after Peterson left in order to create his own label Talkin' Loud, Acid Jazz signed a second wave of artists including the Brand New Heavies, who released their self-titled debut album in 1990, Corduroy, Mother Earth, and Jamiroquai, who released their debut single "When You Gonna Learn" on the label in 1992. Throughout the 1990s the label also put out a number of compilation albums, most notably the Totally Wired series which covered the range of influences and sounds within the acid-jazz genre, as well as what was being released on the label at that time.

In 1993, Piller, the label's owner purchased a night-club which he named the Blue Note. Initially used as a way of promoting the record label's music, the club soon built up a large reputation and was open seven nights a week hosting various different club nights including that of musician Goldie's Metaheadz label. After the closing of the Blue Note in the late 1990s the label somewhat shifted its focus from producing just acid-jazz and its similar genres of music to that of soul and mod. The mid-noughties saw the signing of Andy Lewis and the release of his top 40 Northern Soul inspired single "Are You Trying To Be Lonely?" featuring Paul Weller on vocals. The label also released the "Rare Mod" series, a collection of rare 7" vinyl EPs from the 60's, presented in a picture sleeves, as well as accompanying compilation albums

In the last decade the label has celebrated its 25th anniversary and re-issued a number of its best-selling records such as The Brand New Heavies and The People Tree, as well as putting out a special 6CD boxset including an artwork book and DVD. This period has also seen the label sign more contemporary soul artists such as New Street Adventure and Men of North Country, as well as the folk-rock of British actor Matt Berry.

Acid Jazz Records are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Having played a major part in shaping the musical landscape of the nineties and onwards, Acid Jazz will commemorate their quarter of a century with a bang! The iconic British label was set up in 1987 by Eddie Piller and fellow DJ Gilles Peterson and became much more than a label - introducing a new genre of music and culture to a whole generation. Having founded The Blue Note club in Hoxton, they changed the face of 90s clubbing and launched the Hoxton-Shoreditch triangle as the cultural hub it is today. The new soul and jazz sound was spearheaded by their artists including, Jamiroquai, Brand New Heavies, Galliano, Mother Earth and the James Taylor Quartet.

Acid Jazz, immediately hit a chord in the UK by appealing to a cross section of serious fans from old school Jazzers, obsessive Jazz-Funkers, passionate Soulboys, sharp-dressed Mods, nodding Hip-Hoppers and even laid back Dreads. Before long the tentacles of the Acid Jazz movement were spreading throughout the world and what began as a bedroom label between two mates soon became a mecca for various tribes who had become disenfranchised from other scenes. From international breakthrough successes like the Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai and the Totally Wired series, Acid Jazz cemented it'۪s image as one of the most iconic and unique UK record labels of the last 3 decades.

Eddie Piller & Dean Rudland have compiled over 5 hours of music across several genres which scans the key periods in Acid Jazz history.

Volume 3 FLAC gone already? Or maybe just an error? If it got booted, that sure was quick!

Rho said...

Hello Anon, yes Deposit is a strange host, it often drops the uploads, even after it has appeared in my files, as it did here, hence i rarely use it. Meanwhile i've re-upped Acid Jazz 3 to multi up. N-Joy

Anonymous said...

Interesting. From my (downloading) side, I have to say it's always been one of the easiest, fastest and trouble free ones out there. But somehow, finding out that uploading to it is a pain makes some sort of cosmic sense. :p

Many thanks for the re-up!

R.I.P. Aretha Franklin

flyra said...

I think that disc 3 in mp3 is the same as disc 2! I cannot repeat the downloading process since Filefactory is a pain in the ass to download (painfully slow and completely unstable) and the worst host - if you haven't paid for subscription! Please check!

Francois Villaret said...

Correct, the ogg version of Acid Jazz 3 is actually part 2 repeated. Could you please correct, Rho?

Rho said...

Ok Francois i made a mistake, a rare occasion,maybe Aretha's death confused me, anyway not sure why you just don't download the flac version and recode it, well i did and entered the new ogg acid jazz 3 link...n-joy

Francois Villaret said...

Thanks RHo, perfect! Why didn't I think about formating from flac?!
