RIYL: Grime; JME, Stormzy
Label: Boy Better Know
Skepta fans (and there‚Äôs a lot of us) can FINALLY say konnichiwa to Konnichiwa on vinyl! The album suffered delays for a¬†few¬†years before finally being released in May of last year. It garnered worldwide acclaim and put up some big numbers even prior to winning the Mercury Prize, and it‚Äôs pushed¬†Grime onto the radar international mainstream radar since then. Vinyl forums started to buzz with expectations for a¬†wax release, but at some point the manufacturing¬†plans hit an indefinite¬†delay as well. Thankfully, indefinite didn‚Äôt mean forever in this case. Let‚Äôs just hope there‚Äôs no roadblocks in the way of any upcoming new music.

Looks like the record has¬†already sold out at the original link. It is still listed by several other retailers:
That could change of course, but it may be worth a try! The official Skepta store could even have them back in stock if they decide to increase¬†the run.
Expected to dispatch from 29th May 2017
