Specialized Presents a new series of compilation albums
Coming soon from The Specialized Project, NU SKA, a new series of albums celebrating the best original music of the world ska scene. This new album series will run alongside our tribute albums and will enable us to help the charities we support.
As well as generating funds for worthy causes like the Teenage Cancer Trust, Youth Music and Tonic Music for Mental Health, we hope that Nu Ska will support the international ska community and help it to grow. The world is full of amazing new music made by exceptional musicians and the world of ska is a vibrant mix of both traditional and new styles. Nu Ska will bring these new classics of ska to one series of compilations. It will also by away of enabling us to thank and support so many great bands that have helped us to achieve what we have.
We are willing to hear from bands that would like to appear on Nu Ska, though the album will consist of what we feel are the best current singles available now. We’re currently compiling the first addition with a view to releasing it later this year.
This will be the first of a new range of releases and will be joined later by two others. ‘Classic Ska’, will feature the often-unsung classics that came after the two tone years and ‘The Best of the Big One’, featuring the best live performances at our annual festival in Dorset
