Red Bull Music Academy Radio Presents Truth & Soul Label Special
Red Bull Music Academy Radio drops the Truth & Soul Label Special featuring narration from Danny Akalepse and a solid dose of the label's souled out analog gold. Akalepse mines the funk renaissance of the 90s to break down the label's lineage and explain how T&S arrived at its particular sound; more modern arrangements and songwriting combine with an old-school aesthetic to create a byproduct that is beloved by many and duplicated by few. Continuing, Akalepse sheds light on the connections between the lo-fi bass heavy aesthetic of reggae and American funk and soul. He also talks Lee Fields, Nicole Wray and reveals the many hats worn by members of bands familiar to consumers of Truth & Soul, Daptone and other labels that dabble in the dark arts of funk, soul, psych, afrobeat, afro-latin and more.
