Steel City Connection out now / Emerson for Record Store Day!
Kalita are delighted to announce their next release, Steel City Connection's 1978 single 'Steel City Disco', accompanied by extensive interview-based liner notes and never-before-seen photos.

It is our honour to officially offer it here for the first time once more, backed with an unreleased extended version of 'Dansation', sourced from the origi
