Sherlock - Sherlock EP - 1996

I was in London this week so I took a moment of my time to visit Cosmos Records London shop based in East London, 324d Hackney Road precisely. If you're looking for Jazz, Funk or Soul records, this place is for you... they 've got a massive collection with lots of good stuff including Japanese pressing editions. The Hip-Hop section isn't really big but you can dig some rare wax, like the 12"  I found ... a sealed copy of the 4-Track EP released by Sherlock on Rooftop Records in 1996. 

EP - 1996 - Rooftop Records 

For those who aren't familiar with this group, Sherlock was a Swedish Hip-Hop group, active between 1995 and 1997. In addition to a handful of singles, they released the album "Made To Measure" in 1997. The original group members were Infrared, Pee Wee, Speedknock and Seb Roc. Shortly before the album's recording, Infrared left the group and was replaced by Rusiak.
