Welcome back to an all-new session of 23min of Ska! Here’s the first of several episodes this set featuring ska record labels! In doing this I knew, as a midwest native, I had to start out with Jump Up Records! I’ve been running into Jump Up head honcho Chuck for the better part of 20 years. He always has a smile and is happy to talk some ska. Here’s a pretty small sampling of what Jump Up has gotten out over the last several years, there’s so much other great stuff that I couldn’t fit in this episode, but I think it’s a pretty good representation of what I dig about Chuck and Jump Up records!
00:00 – Weaker Youth Ensemble – American Style (American Ska-thic comp ’94)
03:00 – Greenhouse – Too Late (Tomorrow the World ’98)
07:20 – Pressure Cooker – Walking in the Light (Burning Fence ’03)
09:19 – Deal’s Gone Bad – City City (the Ramblers ’07)
