Alaska is back with a new plate brimming with funk and emotion housed in a colour art jacket.

‘Hold On’ skips with a breakbeat packing punch to pierce any sound system with its bottom-end grit.

Rhode stabs, chords and searing horns rise to vocal hooks that drop halfway in the mix. Simply Hold on.

On the flipside a classic from 1997 gets the remastering treatment for the Alaska discog-hungry Junglists.

‘The Vortex’ was an early Renegade Recordings title that sat between the likes of fellow renegade’s Shogun and Future Engineers.

Atmospheric gated-pads, Bleeps and Harps collide with heavy Amen breaks that typify the 1997 ambient era.

We are proud to give The Vortex a new lease of vinyl-life.
