We’ve acquired a bit of a journey through the ages with this next edition. The way this has been pieced together is a joy to listen to in itself, let alone the sheer quality of the music our next guest has compiled. It’s certainly not your typical bedroom mix; this one makes you feel like you’re THERE…immersed in the confines of a smokey basement. Without further adieu we’d like to introduce you to Detroit native, Ferrispark Records founder and all round sound guy… Scott Ferguson.
Scott has consistently been a part of the Detroit woodwork since the late nineties after hangin’ with some of the best in the business, namely KDJ, UR, Reggie Dokes and the like. His Ferrispark imprint has become a household name in the D as well as the world over after his debut release ‘Dump Days’ hit the stores, gaining serious props from the heavy hitters such as Theo Parrish, Marcellus Pittmann, Larry Heard and Moodymann. Since then the man has gone from strength to strength!
The mix itself is an absolutely beauty…you’ve got anything from super sexy 70s disco cuts to chunky acid riddims all the way through to Talking Heads and even a certain john Lennon’s son Julian. This is certainly something for one and all to warm your souls.
All of Ferrispark Records catalogue has been recently removed from digital download stores. If you would like a chance to directly support the label, a selection of the Ferrispark catalogue is now for sale on our very own Bandcamp page. Thank you always for your continued support.
Over time I have come to the conclusion that the ‘Black Boxx’ 12″ releases have not been executed in the best way. Due to a lack of judgement as well as laziness on my part, I have failed to make sure that the release concept of the ‘Black Boxx’ series is easily understood. The idea behind the release is as follows…
A total of 6 ‘Black Boxx’ 12″ vinyl releases counting up from 1 to 3 and then back down from 3 to 1. All EPs in the series with the same art, the distinguishing factor being that ‘Black Boxx’ Eps counting down (3 to 1) would feature all art and text backwards.
FPR035 BLACK BOXX EP
FPR036 BLACK BOXX EP2
FPR037 BLACK BOXX EP3
FPR038 BLACK BOXX EP3 (ART & TEXT BACKWARDS)
FPR039 BLACK BOXX EP2 (ART & TEXT BACKWARDS)
FPR040 BLACK BOXX EP (ART & TEXT BACKWARDS)
One of the major problems I’m seeing is that (for obvious reasons) sometimes the people who are purchasing the ‘Black Boxx’ Eps think that they have already purchased, for example, ‘Black Boxx EP3’ so they become unaware that there is a second ‘Black Boxx Ep3’ with the art and text backwards and that it is in fact, an entirely different release containing completely different music.
I would like to apologise to the supporters of Ferrispark for not thinking this through properly and for any confusion it may have caused. Thank you always for your continued support.
