About

DKR is a reggae reissue imprint from Brooklyn, NY, started in 2009. Our goal is simple - legit and high quality reissues of rare and killer tunes. No bootlegs, no bad new artwork, no terrible noisy or warped pressings. That said, it's not always easy. In the production of these records, every effort has been made for the highest possible quality, and to utilize master tapes whenever possible. However, in some cases the master tape no longer exists or is in unusable condition. Therefore, some selections have been repressed from original stampers (where we felt their wear was not a major detriment), or have been carefully remastered from very rare but unfortunately imperfect original press vinyl copies. Even with a highly skilled and experienced reggae mastering engineer and the most modern audio soft/hardware, in some instances the results can still leave something to be desired, even for the most welcoming ears. In these cases we believe that the rarity, and more importantly, quality of the music will carry you through. Enjoy!
