Caribbean Disco Boogie Sounds – Rare & Obscure Gems From The Caribbean Territories 1977 to 1982 2015 (Favorite Recordings)


Label : Favorite Recordings

Value :

A killer collection of funky soul from the Caribbean – not tracks that have a typical island sort of sound, with roots in calypso, soca, or reggae – and instead just he kind of key cuts that match the best underground work on the New York scene! Keep in mind that lots of American disco came from musicians who'd moved up north from the Caribbean – bringing a sunny spirit and driving rhythms in the process, as well as a post-colonial, diaspora approach to the music – which was then fused with American soul and funk for the clubs! This set has a very similar vibe, but just reverses the process – with grooves that borrow plenty from the hipper club styles of the late 70s and early 80s, and come across with a freshly non-commercial vibe, given their Caribbean roots. We'd never heard most tracks here before – hats off to Waxist for compiling the collection. By Dusty
