Throwback Thursday Special CD Sale – Raymond & Co, 4 Kornerz, Sammy G, Faith Child!

The UKGospel shop closed down a few years ago – and ever since then the CDs in the store have been sitting in their storage boxes, wondering what will happen next…

Well, as an experiment to see whether it’s worth re-opening the shop, a few CDs will be added to this page throughout March 2018.  If there are enough sales I might actually consider reactivating the whole thing.

What’s In Store, Then…?

There are quite a few from back in the day from Praise & Worship to Hip-Hop and RnB, but for now I’m only bringing out the classics (it is throwback Thursday after all).  Throughout the month I’ll add a few more to the store and – depending how sales go, continue – or stop again.

The store has the classics:

Raymond & Co – Playing Games

  • Price – £6.99
  • Postage – free to any UK address

Free Download – sammy. – ‘The Soundtrack’

sammy. is back (don’t let the name confuse you – you’ll remember him as ‘Sammy G’)

Sammy. - The Soundtrack

His first release after the widely-respected ‘Plain & Simple’ album is – in keeping with the times – a free download.

Once again sammy. has hooked up with long-time collaborator/producer Jimmy James (on ‘The Matrix’), but the 4-track EP also includes new production partnerships: Romez Reacher on ‘The Soloist’, and Karac on ‘The Harder They Come’ (which also features guest vocals from Phil Shand).

Guest appearances continue with Favour and D.A.Jay showing up for vocal duties on ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’ (produced by Mr Virgo).

sammy. says he’s aiming the EP (and subsequent 2013 releases) specifically at Grime music fans, because – as he makes an observation about the trend-led nature of contemporary music: “it seems that all the Christian MCs that did Grime a few years back are now releasing Hip-Hop mixtapes, which I find quite odd – there are so many die-hard Grime fans who could be reached”

And by the way: the full stop after sammy. and the lower-case ‘s’ is deliberate.  It’s obviously a creative thing.

The Essential UK Gospel Tracklist – June 2011

It’ll be pretty obvious to anyone who cares to look that we’re in the middle of an amazing run of great new music in the UK at the moment

And that’s helped in no small part both by the mixtape culture of giving away free music, and the seemingly dwindling resistance to Christian artists writing songs to mainstream instrumental tracks. Continue reading The Essential UK Gospel Tracklist – June 2011

Want some *awesome* UK Gospel Music..? Start here!

The recent holiday season was amazing.

If you were shrewd enough in your planning, you might even have been one of those people with an 11-day holiday stretch.  I’m not jealous.

No, really…  I’m not.

Over the same period we’ve been plied with some great new music, so I’ve been a very happy bunny.

Here’s a quick round-up of the music you definitely need in your life.  If you went away you certainly missed the release of an amazing selection of strong music.

There’s still time to get them, though: Continue reading Want some *awesome* UK Gospel Music..? Start here!

Video: Faith Child ‘Just Pose’

Very catchy, great little song of affirmation from the forever-cheeky, London-based Faith Child.

Proof positive once again (as if you really needed it) that you don’t need a huge budget to create something memorable and effective…

‘Just Pose’ is taken from Faith Child’s excellent debut album, IllumiNATION.

And yes, that is Micheala The Poet you can hear on the song as well…

Royal Priesthood: Rise [VIDEO] – I *LOVE* this…

One of my all-time favourite tracks from one of the UK’s hardest-working groups.

Rise is *awesome*: old school Hip-hop loop with serious content.

Resistance is futile…?

UKG_LogoFacebook_LogoI resisted it for as long as I could but in the end, I don’t think there was much doubt that I was going to create a Facebook page for

It’s only been live for a few days (even though I created it months ago), as I just didn’t see the point of a Facebook page.

The Potential…

To be honest, I’m still not totally sure about its usefulness, but about one week in I can already see its potential.

For one it seems to have a stats package supporting it – and I’m a sucker for stats. Forget the hype, let’s see what the stats are saying…

Your free stuff!!

Of course you’re going to benefit too: free stuff (CDs, downloads and maybe even books and clothing) – among other very lovely and very useful things I haven’t even thought up yet…

Do the civil thing and be a fan. Like now.
