Brothers and Sisters, it's time to put aside that record you've been trying to get down with and get down with this! Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings are about to turn you on to their New Brand of Dynamite Soul.
Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are a funk/soul band. They are signed to Daptone Records, where the Dap-Kings are the house band. They are widely thought to be spearheads of a revivalist movement that aims to capture the essence of funk/soul music as it was at its height in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s. Part of the way this is achieved is to shun modern digital recording methods in favor of using traditional analogue recording equipment. The type of instruments used by the band may also be considered limited to those that would have been available up until the mid seventies.
As the top featured act in the Daptone Funk & Soul Revue, Sharon Jones has earned a reputation as the Baddest Soul Sister on the circuit, electrifying audiences from coast to coast with her Funky Dynamic Soul Energy. I mean she comes on Strong and Funky! The first single "Got A Thing On My Mind" was an overnight smash hit on dance floors and radio stations across the nation, and with exciting new rhythms and dances like the "Dap Dip", this record is destined to do the same. Sharon Jones, Sharon Jones. This sister is B-A-D!
Tracks include "The Dap Dip", "Got a Thing On My Mind", Make It Good To Me" and many more smash hits!
