To celebrate Record Store Day 2018, Ohio-based Funk/Soul label Colemine Records, and the Brooklyn-based indie Hip-Hop label Coalmine Records have teamed up for a limited-edition 7-inch 45 titled, “Head Above Water.” The double label venture boasts a new Soul jazz groove from the LA-based Funk/Soul collective, The Rugged Nuggets for the Side-A, or the “Cole Side,” B/W a reinterpretation of the track, flipped by Coalmine’s go-to producer, Small Professor for the B-Side, or “Coal Side,” which features blistering verses from Smoke DZA, Mutant Academy’s Fly Anakin and Blu, with cuts by the incomparable DJ Revolution.
This sure to be collector’s item, which boasts artwork designed by Joe Buck, is now available exclusively for Record Store Day, and can be purchased through all participating Record Store Day vendors. An even more exclusive version pressed on transparent blue haze can be purchased online via Fat Beats, while supplies last. Both the music and partnership embody the spirit of RSD, which emanates feelings of community and soul over the bullshit…cause we’re all just tryin’ to rise up and keep our heads above water.
