Everton Chambers – Backative 7″ finally out

The first tune from our Everton Chambers project is finally on vinyl. The label is Hanami, and not Fast Forward Sound – but it´s all in order. Ola and Andreas who run the Hanami label are also in charge of One Away Studios where we voiced all the vocals and produced this riddim. They put in a lot of time and effort on the upcoming album – and as a form of payment they got to release this killer track on their label. And since Ola actually made the production it´s quite appropriate that they did. It will soon also be available on the album – on vinyl and digitally.

Thanks for all your patience. Please contact me if you´re interested in copies (erik.gripenholm(at)gmail.com).

Big up Everton Chambers!!!!!


Fast Forward snackar dubs

Häromveckan pratade jag, Erik, med dancehallpodd-Hasan om dubplates. Inte bara fick jag ge mig på att förklara vad en dubplate är, jag fick också spela en personlig favorit. Valet föll på Gappy Ranks-dub inspelad på en av våra egna rytmer – med shoutouts till några av våra sångare – Samuel Lancine, Jr Tan, Joey Fever och Everton Chambers.

Lyssna här:

Sthlm winter splash!

The good folks behind Öland Roots and Soundkilla are producing yet another nice event. And we´re booked to host the small dancefloor! Great line up including some favourites like Labyrint, Queen Ifrica and Tony Rebel.

Personally, I´m mostly looking forward to see Tony Rebel. The amount of great tunes he´s got… It´s just crazy.

November 3rd @ Gamla Tryckeriet, Alvik, Stockholm. Drop by and say hello if your in the area! More info about the event here.

Dougie Conscious mixing

A bit overdue, but right now we are just trying to finish what we started last summer when Everton Chambers visited us and blessed us with a set of brand new songs. Here´s a sample from what might be heard on the forthcoming album. Dougie Conscious mixing a killer track with Ola and Andreas in One Away Studio, where all the vocals and a few instrumentals (like this one) was recorded.
