Brittany’s Record Shop owner Brittany Benton chooses three albums you should check out

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Looking for some new music to spin? Cleveland’s record store owners have their own thoughts about what they think you should be listening to—and it’s all available in their shops.

Brittany Benton (aka DJ Red-I and one-half of hip-hop duo FreshProduce.) owns the newly-opened Brittany’s Record Shop, located at 6410 Fleet Ave., Cleveland. Previously, she ran the Young Kings record store along with Samantha Flowers.

Here are her three picks of music you should check out:

Prince Jammy – “Computerised Dub”

“To my knowledge this is the first digital dub album. Full of, in the ’80s, what were considered futuristic sound effects and danceable grooves. Prince Jammy aka King Jammy is considered the father of dancehall music because of many of the instrumentals on this LP. This mid-80s classic represents a transitional point in Jamaican music that bridges the digital futurism of dancehall and the traditionally rootsy-grooves of dub reggae.”

99.9% by Kaytranada

“This LP is well over a year old, but is still one of the freshest contributions in music. Big Kaytra seamlessly fuses house, New Jack Swing, trap and Caribbean rhythms to make a soulfully electronic masterpiece. Includes features from Little Dragon, Syd, Alunageorge and more.”

“Wax Mage Records Collection 2: Double Trouble”

“This is a Cleveland gem. A limited edition comp LP from Wax Mage (only 25 made). Features Cleveland bands like Shagg, Kill The Hippies, Deche, Part-Time Lover, Fan Fiction and more.”
