James Hunter Six, The
Nick Of Time Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Daptone)
22,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Back in the spotlight with a sublime new rhythm and blues record, James Hunter follows up six critically acclaimed albums with his latest recording, Nick of Time, set for release on Brooklyn’s renowned soul label Daptone Records.

Nick of Time is a shining testament of how a master songsmith continually draws fresh water from a bottomless well. Recorded and produced by Bosco Mann, Nick of Time features one of today’s foremost soul singers at the top of his game performing with musicians who’ve backed some of the biggest contemporary music stars including Daptone artists Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley. Nick of Time will be internationally released on March 6, 2020.

For Nick of Time, Hunter and Daptone co-founder Bosco Mann hunkered down in the label’s Penrose Studios in Riverside, California for what certainly will be one of 2020’s standout soul recordings. Unmistakably another stunning James Hunter album, Nick of Time is a voyage between beautiful, mid-tempo rumba recalling early King/Federal releases, while lush arrangements summon lost tracks from early '60s Burt Bacharach sessions. Nick of Time is steeped in an era when soul records were driven by earth-shattering vocal performances. James Hunter hands down ushers classic soul music into the 21st Century with a sense of timelessness that’s rare these days.

James Hunter is an everlasting writer of compelling narratives sung with true grit while backed by an ace band of New York City’s finest musicians. Nick of Time finds Hunter in the company of Victor Axelrod (piano), Adam Scone (organ), Rudy Petschauer (drums), Myles Weeks (bass), Michael Buckley (baritone saxophone), and Freddy DeBoe (tenor saxophone). On the road for an extensive U.S., U.K., and European tour in support of Nick of Time, Matt Slocum (keyboards) takes the reins on keys for a hearty James Hunter Six ensemble ready to electrify soul music fans as they hit venerable stages in a city near you.

Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
It is a true pleasure to present another sure-shot single from our good friends, and top-tier tunesmiths, The James Hunter Six. The A -Side, "Brother or Other" blast out of the speakers with an explosive 7 stroke tip-of-the-cap to Motown's legendary drummer, Benny Benjamin - courtesy of long-time Sugarman 3 stalwar t, Rudy Albin. This track finds James and co. exploring more of a straight-forward soul sound than previous ef forts. Seasoned generously with a gorgeous piano melody and timely message, the tune settles into a mid-tempo groove that has enough dancefloor bounce to get folks on their feet. The social conscious productions of Curtis Mayfield come to mind as James pleads, "Brother or other / make up your mind / Does your love extend to all mankind?". The flip, "Never" is an evocative beautiful ballad t hat's right smack in James' pocket : a slow, rolling rumba that'll make you wanna sway with the one you love, or the one you long to love. Very few artists in the game today are capable of making records as sweet as t his. An instant classic!

Genre:Organic Grooves
Since the release of Move Upstairs, the first album featuring the Como Mamas backed by musical accompaniment (via The Glorifiers Band), the reigning royalty of Como Mississippi have been touring extensively, sharing their bluesy, soulful brand of Gospel with fans all over the world.

On a break from one of their recent trips, Della Daniels, lead for The Como Mamas, sent an urgent message to producer, and Glorifiers Band bass player, Bosco Mann. In this message she declared that she is sick with spirit about Hold On To God's Unchanging Hand - a traditional track recorded during the Move Upstairs session. She said the Holy Ghost won't leave her alone about this song, and that she really needs to share the recording with the world.

Luckily for us...the greater Daptone family...Bosco Mann concurred, and with a stroke of genius, doubled down, suggesting they include another unreleased track from the session, their arrangement of the Fred McDowell masterpiece, “You've Go To Move”. The call was made and Daptone has answered with these two sanctimonious sides on one slab-o righteous wax. You will be hard-pressed to find a finer fort-five.

LP | 2019 | US | Original (Daptone)
17,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
As menacing and unhinged as ever, the pride of Staten Island is back with their fifth full-length offering, V. Raw and absent of modern technological trappings, the Budos pick up where they left off with 2014’s “Burnt Offering,” and finds the Budos expanding on the brooding, fuzz-fueled riffs, whilst harkening back to the Ethiopian inspired rhythms and percussive proclivity that put Budos Band on the map. “Old Engine Oil,” a rocker at heart, kicks things into gear and delivers a high-octane burst of Budos mayhem. “The Enchanter” serves up a classic dose of upbeat afro-soul, drenched in a venomous assault of wall-melting proportions that leads you to the “Spider Web,” a rumbling ode to the Cowbell Colossus whose punctuated horn stabs take you on an untamed ride to the dark side of the spoon. The side closes with “Peak of Eternal Night,” whose odd time signature and haunting horns transport the listener to the peak of a menacing otherworldly landscape that’s further explored in the final track “Ghost Talk” – a guitar driven groover that gives way to an organ-washed space ritual beneath sun-summoning trumpet blasts.

Side Two opens with “Arcane Rambler,” an interstellar ramble across space and time that leaves the listener in cosmic purgatory. “Maelstrom,” released as a single shortly after the release of “Burnt Offering,” boasts waves of furious sonic power that batter the listener via a maw of snarling sea-foam bubbling with the power of the Budos. Soon darkness falls as “The Veil of Shadows” is draped across the land – in this realm of twilight one quickly loses their way, only to find themselves at a dusk-to-dawn pyre of budonian proportions. “Rumble from the Void” then pulls you into a percussive black hole of formless beat-worship. There are no horns to help you here, just the tentacles of rhythm that tirelessly pull you back into the void. “Valley of the Damned” closes the record, it’s twisting groove coupled with hypnotic drones of synth and horns transports you to a place of little hope and and even less reason.You’ve been warned…

James' heartfelt, pleading vocal is the star of the show here, accompanied by a lilting, latinesque beat that will send your troubles up into the lovelorn ether. Another magical single from James and Co.

Look who's back! Just in time for your late summer soirées, Doug "Master Plan" Shorts offers up another pair of modern soul movers guaranteed to tear up the club and backyard boogie-downs alike. The A-Side, “Get with the Program,” drops hard with a bass line and groove reminiscent of ESG at their best, but the relaxed feel and smooth vocal lend the tune a sophistication that elevates it to another level altogether. As Doug pleads with his potential lover to "Get with the Program" it's hard not to imagine that he's also speaking to the greater soul community. For those not already down with Doug's program, now's the time... act like ya know! On the flip we find our protagonist pleading with yet another prospective ladylove, this time accompanied by a bouncy, mid-tempo groove and Mary Jane-esque synth line. “Heads or Tails” would have been well at home on Chicago's boogie scene in the early '80s, but it doesn't ever sound dated. Both sides of this superlative disc drip with positive vibes and unassailable groove. Summer of 2019 NEEDS this record!

All My Relations Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Daptone)
16,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Daptone Records is overjoyed to present All My Relations- the debut solo album from longtime
Dap-Kings saxophonist, Cochemea Gastelum. Cochemea’s electro-sax leads an
ensemble of percussive giants (members of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Antibalas) on a
psychedelic, spiritual journey, exploring his ancestral roots through melody and rhythm. As
a body of work, it is an acknowledgement of oneness and harmony with all forms of life:
people, animals, insects, plants, trees, and even rocks, rivers, mountains and valleys. It
celebrates the sublime beauty of existence and beginnings of such. Some of the tunes were
drawn from memory, imagined from a time and place Cochemea has never been, such as
“Sonora" (the home of his Yaqui ancestors), and “Mescalero" (an Apache tribe from the
South Central region of Mexico - ancestors of his great-grandmother). Others were born
from the Musical impression of ritual, like “Mitote" (an ancient, secular round dance of the
Aztecs and other tribes of the Sierra Madre Occidental - which in certain cultures can be
associated with Peyote ritual). The track “Asatoma" (The Asatome) is an ancient prayer from
India. In Sanskrit, it prays for guidance to grow from darkness to light, to distinguish the
real from the unreal, and to be guided from death of the physical to the immortality of the
Spirit. It is a celebration of life.
The musicians on the record also bring a piece of themselves and their heritage, creating a
cultural cornucopia of sonic expression that allows Cochemea's vision and spirituality to
flourish. All My Relations, in a sense, is a musical prayer to the world to help recognize our
one true source, our shared identity. We are one.

Ladies and Gentlemen...without further ado...Brooklyn's own Menahan Street Band are back with another two-sided sonic brawl. Presenting! "There's a New Day Coming" b/w "Tommy Don't". Originally recorded as a single backing track for Charles Bradley, the tune was ultimately shelved (like many other tracks) after Charles' passing. After some time had gone by the reel made its way back onto the tape machine and producer Tommy TNT Brenneck had a eureka moment. He split the track into two sides and wrote some lyrics for the slower portion as a tribute to CB, which became "There's a New Day Coming". He loved the juxtaposition of having the slower, heavy tribute on side A, and the upbeat, lighter track on the flip.
When singers, Saundra Williams (Saun & Starr) & Alecia Chakour showed up for the session TNT played them what was to become "Tommy Don't". While it was playing Saun said "You know why I like working with you, Tommy? Cause you don't overthink shit". And with that Saun started singing "Tommy don't overthink shit.". Brenneck started cracking up and said, "We HAVE to record that.". And with that...Voila!...a brand spanking new 45 from the kings of instrumental soul, Menahan Street Band. It's a doozy, folks! Get one before they're gone.

Bad Education Volume 1 - Soul Hits Of Timmion Records
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Daptone)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
For the better part of 15 years Helsinki's own Timmion Records has released some of the most exciting soul sides happening today. To help spread the Timmion love, Daptone staffers and brass made a list of their favorite Timmion tracks from the past couple years. Presented here is Bad Education, Vol. I, the culmination of weeks of deliberation and infighting (mainly due to their unusually high batting average) - 10 tracks that best represent the eclectic wealth of soulful riches Timmion Records has to offer.

Side 1 one gets cracking with "This is What Love Looks Like", a mid-tempo, breezy dancer by NYC's own Carlton Jumel Smith whose recent album, 1634 Lexington Ave, is poised to be one of the top Soul releases of 2019. Johnny Benavidez, the Texas-born, California-raised balladeer showcases his heartfelt falsetto with "Tell Me That You Love Me" - a beat ballad of the highest order, and a must for fans of Texas giants The Commands. Pratt & Moody, a vocal duo who have been making waves for sometime in their native Finland, serve up another heart-wrenching, head-bobbing ballad with "Lost, Lost, Lost". Picking up the tempo we have the undisputed queen of Finnish Soul, Miss Nicole Willis! The New York native is already a household name on the UK Northern Soul scene, but now it's time for this expat to make some noise Stateside. Closing out the side we have the leather-clad-fringed flute phenom know as Ernie "Scorpio Man' Hawks. The Scorpio Walk's deep groove laced with murmuring fuzz bass and surf guitar rushes the listener like a maniacal villain in an art house spy movie.

Side 2 two packs even more soulful punches, starting with the unreleased track "Until You’re Mine" by Wanda Felicia. Equal parts slick, Big City street harmony and raw, southern soul, the track evokes the ver y best of Fame-era Candi Staton. Next up, we have Bobby Oroza whose featured track "This Love" took the Soul scene by storm upon its release in 2016. His understated, earnest vocal let's the sparse arrangement and heavy beat take you to a place where the sun shines bright and the low-riders shine brighter where the Sunday afternoon sun dances off the gold flecks of custom paint jobs. "Bad Education" the funky, afro-latin soul monster with a message (whose title graces the cover of this album) tips the hat to legends like Joe Bataan and Ray Barreto. The debut single by Bardo Martinez, already known for his work with Chicano Batman, lays down a fier y indictment of the educational system defining it as a mouthpiece for the militar y industrial complex. A heavy tune with a heavier message! From top to bottom Bad Education, Vol. I is a feast for discerning funk & soul freaks alike!

Originally released in the winter of 2012 as part of a self-released E.P., "Never Answer" b/w "Questions" has been remastered and lovingly pressed onto a 45rpm, 7" record - the way it should be! One of the first songs that found bassist Preet Patel in the proverbial driver's seat, the tune began as a instrumental demo with only a chorus melody and a strong UK lovers rock vibe. Once Preet played it for the rest of the group the tune quickly came to life with the addition of Dan Klein's sincere, soulful vocal melody that pays homage to a long-time personal hero of the Frightnrs, the legendary Sugar Minott. The lovers touch mixed with the gritty Brooklyn & Queens rocksteady approach the Frightnrs have become known for has evolved into something all their own...some might say Frightsteady. A truly hidden gem in the Frightnrs formidable catalog, that is sure to bring joy to any and all discerning selectors out there in the Daptone Universe.

Genre:Organic Grooves
November 5th, 2018 would have been Charles Bradley’s 70th birthday. In celebration of his extraordinary life, Daptone imprint Dunham Records is proud to announce the release of his fourth and final album, Black Velvet.

Black Velvet is a celebration of Charles Bradley, lovingly assembled by his friends and family at Dunham/Daptone Records. Though chronologically the material spans Charles' entire career, this is no anthology, greatest hits or other shallow rehashing of the songs that already made him famous. Rather, this album is a profound exploration through the less-travelled corners of the soulful universe that Charles and his longtime producer, co-writer and friend Tommy "TNT" Brenneck created in the studio together over their decade-long partnership. It features new songs recorded during the sessions from each of his three albums, heard here for the very first time in all their scorching glory: "Can't Fight the Feeling," "Fly Little Girl" and the heart-wrenching single "I Feel a Change", hard core rarities like his funk-bomb duet with LaRose Jackson, "Luv Jones," the psychedelic groover, "(I Hope You Find) The Good Life" and the ever-illusive alternate full band electric version of "Victim of Love", sought-after covers of Nirvana's "Stay Away," Neal Young's "Heart of Gold" and Rodriguez's "Slip Away", and the title track "Black Velvet," a stirring Menahan Street Band instrumental to which Charles was never able to cut a vocal.

Charles was truly a transcendent singer who led a remarkable life, overcoming unimaginable adversity to achieve great success and international acclaim very late in his life. What was really special about him and made him different from everybody else in the world was how he understood his pain as a cry for universal love and humanity. He felt that if he loved enough—if we all loved each other enough—we could take away the world’s pain and sadness. That is why he jumped off the stage and literally tried to hug everybody he could. It's why he took such great care of a mother that had abandoned him. It's why he sang and danced like a lunatic. It's why he screamed like an eagle. And that's why we love him.

Black Velvet is a celebration of his life, and is destined to join Charles' first three albums alongside the cannon of essential soul records for the ages.
The new album is comprised of ten tracks the singer laid down in the years before his death, taken from different recording sessions over the years.

The first Brit to sign to Daptone Records, Hunter is revered by critics both in his native UK and stateside, with MOJO touting Hunter as “The UK’s greatest soul singer” and the Los Angeles Times praising his “extraordinary soul voice.” Of his prior recordings, Rolling Stone called his U.S. debut People Gonna Talk, “a treat not to miss” and his second album “unbelievably awesome,” while The New York Times noted of The Hard Way, Hunter’s “tight, slithery groove” and “sweet growl.” Hunter’s accolades include milestones of reaching #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, a GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Traditional Blues Album”, years as a singer touring and recording with Van Morrison, and many TV appearances on Conan, Later…with Jools Holland, and other late night TV shows.

Subsequent to his acclaim as one of today’s renowned soul singers, Hunter’s restless genius penning emotive and captivating works results in his best written compositions to date on Whatever It Takes.

In April of 2010, Robert, Bobby, Alberta, Delouse, and Patricia gathered at the home of their parents, Raymond and Joella Walker to make a recording with Michael Reilly. It would be Reilly’s third venture to record the a capella gospel tradition ofComo, Mississippi for Daptone Records. It was during his first recording (The Voices of Panola County: Como Now) that he encountered the Walker family and learned of their great musical tradition. Raymond Walker was courted by both Fred McDowell and Sam Cooke - each asked him to sing behind them on tour.

Respectfully,Raymond declined, on account that the singers wanted him to sing blues rather than gospel. However, it was the Walkers’ voices and not their rich histor y that captured the attention of Daptone and inspired Reilly’s return to Como to make a full-length record of the Walker family songs. Recorded in their living room, these performances are as deep and stirring as they are unembelished. Take a moment to take in Panola County Spirit, with The Walker Family Singers.

Since the LP release of James Hunter's jaw-dropping 'Minute By Minute' we've been flooded with requests from DJ's across the nation for a 45 rpm pairing. It takes a special kind of record to warrant a 45 two years after street date but this, ladies and gentlemen, is a long player of such quality. Due to the suffocating frequency of passionate emails, inquiries and suggestions, we had to outsource the gargantuan, albeit monotonous, task of compiling these queries into an easy-to-read pie chart. The results were staggeringly close so after some counsel via our local watering hole, we picked what is surely a two-sider of unparalleled character. It is our distinct privilege to present to you: Heartbreak b/w If I Only Knew, by The James Hunter Six. If you don't like this, you don't have good taste in music. LOOK OUT for James and Co.'s new album early next year on DAPTONE RECORDS!
