“Crown Posada” The 4th Long Player of Smoove & Turrell


With the release of fourth album Crown Posada, Smoove & Turrell cement their position as one of the UK’s most exceptional soul acts (and a fast growing community in whole Europe and beyond) with their innate ability to deliver hard times social commentary in a dancefloor friendly medium.

Proudly working class as a band – this album celebrates love, life, politics and the lows and the highs of growing up and raising families in the North East of England.

Massiv radio airplays (BBC Radio) & press features, heavy touring in UK.

Two. Guys. Dropping. The. Fonk.


We’ve got The Allergies – and we’re really happy about it!

The Allergies is made up of Bristol-based scratch DJs, Moneyshot & Rackabeat. They made it their mission to reshape funky vintage sounds for the modern dancefloor: funk, soul, disco, hip-hop and breakbeat influences mix into a seriously cool stew.

Their 2016 debut album As We Do Our Thing on Jalapeno Records takes in this sound, and features guest vocals from HypeMan Sage, BluRum13 and Ugly Duckling’s Andy Cooper.

They already topped charts at iTunes and Juno, and got ‘Album of the Day’ props over at BBC 6 Music. As Craig Charles put it: “Big, bouncy and fat! Just how I like my funk.”

They’re available for bookings throughout Europe, please contact frank@bureau45.com for more information and conditions!

So Juicy! Kraak & Smaak’s new album out on June 10

Artwork by Jimmy Turrell

Our Dutch friends from Kraak & Smaak just added another great release to their discography: Juicy Fruit is the perfect blend of fresh and sweet disco, funk, and dance sounds.

With Juicy Fruit, Kraak & Smaak go back to their roots: organic and warm electronic disco and early 80s funk paired with indie dance beats, jazz influences, and deep basslines. High-level collaborators on the 13 tracks of the album include Grammy-nominated Mayer Hawthorne, Eric Biddines of Golden Rules, Parcels, Gallowstreet, and Cleopold to name but a few…

Juicy Fruit switches effortlessly between hot dancefloor killers and cool afterparty morning soundtrack. It’s already on constant repeat at bureau45 headquarters – and will surely be so on the dancefloors of clubs and festival stages this summer!

Listen to the first tracks from Juicy Fruit on Kraak & Smaaks Soundcloud channel.

Juicy Fruit (JAL 217) will be released on Jalapeno Records and is available as of June 10th on CD / Digital / 2xLP
