Aloha Got Soul’s first release of 2018 accomplishes two-fold: it aims to tide fans over while the label wraps up new music projects with young artists from Hawaii (more news to come).
Secondly, it gives DJs the chance to bring a much more portable version of these top tunes from the band’s now sold-out LP reissue, which enjoyed play from the likes of Theo Parrish, DJ Muro, Gilles Peterson, and Red Greg.
Most will head straight to the B-side for the non-stop funk/disco fire of “No Beginning, No End” (we do!).
Fans of DJ Muro and DJ Nori’s Captain Vinyl label will know that the A-side’s “Let Me Say Dis About Dat” received a 7-inch treatment in 2017 with a limited, Japan-only run of 500 copies.
A solid addition to the AGS catalog, and a welcome contender in the ever-flowing stream of funk 45s that constantly begs the attention of DJs worth their salt.
The natural evolution of Aloha Got Soul from a funk-soul reissue label into a fully-fledged representative and curator of progressive music from Hawaii continues with this throwback 45 preceding the label’s upcoming drop of new music from emerging artists in 2018.
