Let No One Judge You
Early Recordings From Iran, 1906-1933

HONEST JON'S RECORDS

Ravishingly beautiful, achingly precious songs and instrumentals, sumptuously presented: the Royal Court Orchestra in 1906 through to a hauntingly soulful Hafez setting by Moluk Zarrabi of Kashan, from 1933.



'78s Labels' Multi-coloured on white
With records from Sprigs Of Time and our London series.






'Honest Jons' Badge
2.5 centimetres in diameter.



'Light Of Saba' On beige
Two beautiful tees to celebrate our album becoming available again.




Actress Splazsh
Dazzling melds of classic Detroit, grime, dubstep, speed garage, Paisley rock, synth-wave and the rest, with none other than the man not-himself crowned king.



Actress Paint, Straw And Bubbles
Three exclusives trailering the Splazsh album, including a carnivalesque house banger from Zomby. Out Detroit, UK bass science and UK funky, cold wave and Kraftwerk... a London thing, mongrel and dashing.



Actress Meets Shangaan Electro
An immersive, slashing, ecstatic thumper, just about getting Mars on the radio; and a kind of unhinged marimba and thumb-piano variation, grubbing around manically in half-memories of African polyrhythm.



Actress Rainy Dub
The implacable, alien Son Of Sleng Teng a beast of of a tune, lumbering and snuffling, one-of-a-kind bleeping, buzzing, knocking, dripping, reverberating... and unresolved in nine minutes.




Africa Boogaloo The Latinization Of West Africa
Rocking the party and ramming the dancefloor is the first priority of this review of Latin styles in classic West African dance music, as it emerged with 1950s anti-colonialism, and ran on gloriously into the 70s.



Damon  Albarn Democrazy
Roughs from the hotel rooms of Blur's last US tour, lost in all kinds of music. 'Fragile things, primitive vignettes and lo-fi larvae... A rare peep at the methods of a great songwriter', Q. All gone!




Damon Albarn / Phil Asher Sunset Coming On Remix
Broken remix by Phil Asher aka Focus/Restless Soul, featuring Kaidi Tatham on keys and (from the original Mali Music cut) Hassey Sare on violin.
