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?
