Ashley Road Sessions 88-94

Double Vinyl

Celebrating 30 years since their first release, foundation laying forefathers Smith & Mighty release ‘Ashley Road Sessions’.

It’s irrefutable and well documented that Smith & Mighty are integral to the story of Bristol music, but the duo (and occasional trio) are accountable not only as key proponents of that local sound, but also for propagating the wider array of much urban and electronic music, to this day.

Despite being inextricably linked to the South West England sound, ‘Ashley Road Sessions’ proffers an array of styles, the breadth and spectrum of which might surprise. Breakbeat, hardcore, balearica and acid house all feature as prominently as the dub, reggae, hip hop beats and soul for which they’re most commonly associated
