Iron Sound Records (ISR) was originally set up in 2016, but the founding member of the label has been active on the Reggae scene since the late 1980s and used to manage older labels like: Reggae Retro Records, Next Step and Top Beat. Initially, the label was intended as an outlet for Alien Dread productions but swiftly expanded to embrace other artists and has become an umbrella label.
The ISR releases feature Alvin Davis, Monkey Jhayam (Brasil), Peter ‘Roots’ Lewis, Kendrick Andy and others, on Alien Dread rhythms. Artist, Asha B has had his initial 7” release on his own label, Psalms 87, through ISR, and his tracks are on his own rhythms, which were re-mixed by Alien Dread. Also, Anthony Que features on Winston ‘Niney’ Holness (Observer JA) produced releases, courtesy of Gadd 59 Music.
There have been a plethora of releases to date, mostly 7” Vinyl, plus 10” Vinyl EPs and CD releases, also downloads are available for most releases, thru Zojak (US) on the usual digital platforms, I-Tunes etc;. The vinyl and CD releases can be purchased on Amazon UK (from ISR & other sellers, or Amazon directly) or alternately direct from ISR.
Future releases will include re-releases of original 1970’s/1980’s Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee (JA) albums, again courtesy of Gadd 59 Music.
