Cultures of Soul Are Molesting Laura

Cultures of Soul are Molesting Laura

When we stumbled upon the World's Funkiest Covers compilation just released on US label Cultures of Soul Records, we exclaimed: "Damn! Those cats have really been Molesting Laura the Paris DJs way!!". Their selection, available on CD and glorious vinyl, carefully selected by DJ Deano Sounds, features indeed some of the funkiest covers from around the world and throughout time, from deep funk to latin soul, hard salsa, soul, afro beat, and even cumbia. We couldn't pass on the opportunity to invite the label to do a special Molesting Laura mix and they nailed it for real!! Enjoy these 30 minutes from the crazy world of covers (one of our favorites in the music universe).

Poor Laura! She's really covered all over...

This is a great mix - which I dug out after rediscovering the Molesting Laura Again series. But what's that last killer organ tune after Bobby Bryant - not listed? I love it!

Hi Evan. Last track is The Soul Finders "Dead End Street", a Lou Rawls cover. Thanks for pointing the missing piece out, we've corrected!

Thanks for following up. I'm tuned for more. And btw, the work on your covers/artwork is outstanding, beautiful & always improving. Anyone who tries to knock up some artwork knows it's not as easy as it might seem. Keep it coming too.
