daptone world of funk

Brooklyn’s Daptone Records are celebrating 10 Years of bringing us some of the finest funk and soul records of the decade. We thought that was definitely worth celebrating too with a podcast concentrating on some of the more Funkalicious cuts on the label and we’re sure you’ll agree, they are very Funkalicious indeed.

For this podcast, we feature a couple of bad-ass remixes by Kenny Dope and DJ Spinna as well as reuniting some of the 2 part singles as a whole.

Played with grit and conviction and produced with benchmark analogue techniques, the Daptone sound is the real deal and has had a huge, undeniable influence on many of today’s artists on the scene. We wish them many happy returns and many more to come, as they continue to spearhead the revivalist modern funk and soul movement.

Download, listen and enjoy, then head on over to daptonerecords.com and help support independent music by bagging yourself some of their super soulful records, CDs or digital downloads.
