Cultures of Soul is proud to release the highly anticpated follow-up to the widely successful Tropical Disco Hustle compilation, an album full of rare disco tunes that exude a Caribbean flavor. This volume takes us back to Trinindad and Jamaica and sends us on a few new adventures in St. Lucia and Guadeloupe.
Three tracks by Wild Fire including “The Dealer,” as well as two other classic disco tracks, “Dance With Me” and “Try Making Love,” can be heard on this new compilation. The album also features two killer disco workouts by the Tru Tones, “Dancing” and “Let’s Party,” with the latter having been heavily influenced by the Jacksons. Both tracks are rare and in demand by DJs and record collectors alike.
Also featured here is an excellent cover of Chanson’s “Don’t Hold Back” by reggae legend Derrick Harriott, and the under-the-radar, African-influenced disco tune “Caribean People” by Camille Hildevert.
This album was compiled and researched by Deano Sounds, with edits by french DJ-extraordinary Waxist Selecta and legnedary UK disco DJ Al Kent. Release date is set for 5/15 and you can pre-order on CD or LP here.
