My bad, Iroko just released the Prince alla stuff, would also like to know if any more represses are coming up!

If someone could repress EVERTON CHAMBERS - THIS LOVE OF MINE, PARISH 7" RUDI KHANHAI - COCKTAIL PARTY, SALUDOS 7" and PUPPA RUEBEN - PUNKAS PON PANKAS 12" that would be bloody fantastic lol, DKR wha ya say can you do these represses??

i've said this before on here years ago, but most of these uber-obscure "youtube flexing" digital tunes as i like to call them, are not feasible as reissues. some of them are good but ultimately most of them couldn't even sell 300 copies as a reissue, which makes the economics of licensing and manufacturing them pretty much impossible.
don't be fooled by youtube play counts and discogs 'wants', those things don't translate into a reality wherein there is enough actual demand for a tune to be reissued and have the prodcuer, artist and label all come out in the black.

I was in touch with the guy who produced that cocktail party tune few years ago (really nice guy !) He had plans to repress it and was looking for distributors at that time. I´m not 100 % sure what happened but it never materialized so far.

He did a digital ´re-release´ of it somewhere though.. On some sort if Itunes streaming type of website..

the cocktail party tune had been on itunes/amazon digitally before people even discovered it, when i first heard of it (before it was 'known' and became a big $$$ tune) it was already up there...not sure if it still is.

Top Ranking Sound is about to release 2 digital killers: Telford Nelson - Ghettoman Skank & Noel Brown - One day belly full
Also if someone want to repress Mungu Mtoto - Ghetto Children and Bobby Zarro - Dunne Done that'd be much appreciated! :)

I messaged the producer some time ago to get more info about these and he said they should be out in September but the rough road 7" which was repressed around march is only just hitting the shops I believe (never seen it for sale online before last month but I might have missed it!) so there might be some delays... Maybe a good christmas present ! :)

Anybody know if Dandy Livingstone's South African Experience will get a reissue? It's never been repressed right?

Seems like the repress market is getting scarce too as there dont seem to be as many represses coming out compared to few years ago.

What does anybody else think of this? Or does anybody think the repress market is looking good?
