SOUL JAZZ RECORDS PRESENTS - DISCO REGGAE ROCKERS (VARIOUS ARTISTS) VINYL (LTD. ED. SUN YELLOW 2LP GATEFOLD)
LIMITED EDITION SUN YELLOW 2LP VINYL GATEFOLD
Release Date: 30th September 2022
"‘Disco Reggae Rockers’ features wicked reggae disco versions of funk, soul and disco classics. This new album follows on from Soul Jazz Records’ earlier highly successful ‘Hustle: Disco Reggae’ and features reggae covers of classic songs by Earth, Wind and Fire, Michael Jackson, The Isley Brothers, Candi Staton, Curtis Mayfield and more, as performed by Derrick Harriott, Devon Russell, Hortense Ellis, Glen Adams, Dave Barker and others. The most straightforward definition of ‘Disco Reggae’ is to describe it as American disco and soul songs covered by reggae artists. But the relationship is binary – this is no mere subservient island appreciation of North American dominant culture but instead an example of the interweaving thread of Jamaican and American music that travels back and forth between the major cities of Kingston, London, Toronto, New York, Chicago and Philadelphia."
