Cultures Of Soul - West Indies Vintage Funk Vol.4



Cultures Of Soul - West Indies Vintage Funk Vol 4

American label Cultures Of Soul was last featured in our Best Of 2014 selection with its superb 'Tropical Disco Hustle' compilation. We had invited COS in november 2011 for a mix of covers and in may 2012 for an African funk one. Now the label is back with a second volume of hard-to-find, disco-influenced, cosmic boogie or funk from Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica or the Bahamas, and it was high time to send a new invitation, in order to celebrate the release of that new 'Tropical Disco Hustle' compilation! Are you ready for a groovy disco trip through the Caribbean?
