The Budos Band - T.I.B.W.F. (Hank Shocklee Remix) by ScionAV published on 2009/07/13 22:49:27 +0000 DAPTONE RECORDS is a completely independent, musician-run label specializing in sincere Soul Music. Though their catalog runs the gamut from Funk and Soul to Gospel and Afro-Beat, every record sits squarely in the continuum of the Rhythm & Blues tradition. The majority of their recordings are hand-crafted in their self-built and operated, analog tape recording studio on the first floor of the House of Soul, their Brooklyn, New York headquarters. Like Stax Records before them, the core of Daptone is a close family of friends and musicians that have been working side by side for many years. Lee Fields, The Budos Band, the Sugarman Three, Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens, Charles Bradley, Menahan Street Band, The Honeydripper, Binky Griptite, Bob & Gene, the Daktaris, the Voices of Como, Antibalas, the Mighty Imperials, and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are all part of this Daptone family, whose music can be enjoyed on LP or CD, as well as on seven inch vinyl.
