First Word Records is a label I've been following for a little while now, they've dropped some incredibly tasty music in the past year - Ross McHenry's great jazzy album featuring Mark de Clive Lowe and Myele Manzanza, Riot Jazz Brass Band, Yosi Horikawa, Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra, Souleance, Kid Kanevil, Tall Black Guy, and many more.
To celebrate their tenth anniversary, they've released a great compilation drawing on their back catalog, their very own customised record weight, PLUS two ten inch vinyl EPs, one which collects some tunes that have never been released on vinyl, and the other EP pulls together some of their most popular vinyl tracks to date.
