Luv*Jam is a collective of like minded vinyl junkies from Wrexham in North Wales headed up by Andy Cole who has continued the name with his productions on labels such as Belgium’s We Play House and Lany, UK’s Phonica and Vibrations.
Crow Castle Cuts evolved from the Luv*Jam parties, a dream of ours to get it going. Crow Castle is the local fort from Wrexham’s neighbouring town Llangollen in North Wales. The castle has amazing history which leant itself to the kind of project we wanted to do. A compelling arts and music project lead by music from specifically invited artists and close friends and all bound together in hand finished ‘crowish’ artwork and fairytales of the castle from years gone by.
The historic moments of the castle were noted in our catalogue numbers CCC0749, CCC1073, CCC1277 and coming up at the end of April CCC1402 the final chapter in the collectors Quad pack!
Yes, lots of gigs spread around the country really… Slowmo in Chester, Jaunt in Newcastle, City Bass in Cardiff are a few and then some nice festival affairs – Ibiza’s We Love Space and Kehakuma, Bestival/Camp Bestival, The Beacons in Yorkshire, and our favourite micro club Barcelona’s Macarena with friend Dusty.
There is a Luv*Jam EP coming out with killer NYC label “Throne of Blood” in July or August and the guys were invited to play Fabric to present the label showcase in May, of which they very kindly invited me to join them. Of course I bit their hands off to play there for the first time!
The mix is a promo mix for them really, but it features two of my favourite labels, as we have all grown together I guess – those are TUSK and DISCONNECTED. So it’s an honour for you guys to host this mix tape too!
There is all of the above and a few other EPs expected very soon on Skylax – Houseville of Skylax Volume 2, Millions OF Moments – Finite 0.05. The final Crow Castle Cuts CCC1402, which then meanders into ‘BLIND JACKS JOURNEY’
