Daptone Records = Real Contemporary Rhythm and Soul

Do you love Stax-style rhytm and soul? Do you wish that people were making that kind of music today? They are. Start with Daptone. It’s a label that consistently puts out excellent modern rhythm and soul (and funk and gospel and afrobeat) with an acute sense of history without being mere nostalgia. All of their artists are superb, and they’re based in Brooklyn. Enjoy.
