RIYL: Grime; JME, Stormzy

Label: Boy Better Know

Skepta fans (and there’s 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’s 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’t mean forever in this case. Let’s just hope there’s no roadblocks in the way of any upcoming new music.

***Update (5/19/2017, 10:10 EST)***
Looks like the record has already sold out at the original link. It is still listed by several other retailers:
Bull Moose
Norman Records
Juno Records
Amazon UK

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.
