Daptone Remixed

Scion and Daptone Records recently enlisted the help of various DJs and remixers to produce a compilation of nine exclusive remixes of original Daptone tracks. Daptone is an independent musician-run label specializing in Soul Music, with a catalog that runs the gamut from Funk and Soul to Gospel, Afro-Beat, and Rhythm & Blues. The nine remixes were provided by well-known names like Mark Ronson and Mad Professor, and the compilation also includes a second disc of the nine original recordings. Check it out...

The sampler is available for download through iTunes and eMusic, and promotional CDs will also be available at various Scion sponsored events. Scion funded this project and all proceeds are going directly back to the artists on the Daptone Records label.
