One of the most impressive and consistent labels operating today, New York's Daptone Records have been churning out exceptional funky and soulful music from a wide variety of acts, including Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Germany's Poets of Rhythm, and the Budos Band. Combining super-tight studio musicians, thorough arrangements, and old-school, all-analog recording tactics (they even still put out 45s), the label's music is a sonic time machine, transporting you back to the classic-soul vibe of the '60s and '70s, and evoking comparisons to the era's hitmaking hotspots like Stax and Motown. Over twenty tracks deep, Daptone Gold lives up to its title, serving up a heaping helping of neck-bending jams sure put a strut in your step or liven up any kind of party. Absolutely banging from start to finish, it also features the talents of Lee Fields, Antibalas, Charles Bradley, Binky Griptite, and Naomi Shelton. Whether you pine for the days of O.G. soul or you're a big fan of retro-stylers Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson, this is just what the doctor ordered.
