Les Imprimés are a Norwegian band who offer up deep neo-soul music. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Morten Martens has a voice that would have sounded perfect for 60’s AM radio, and the production is about as authentic as it gets for the time period.
Italy’s Record Kicks has been releasing crime-funk, hip garage rock, deep soul, afro and boogaloo hits for 15 years so the label will be offering, as of May 15th, a compilation of some of their finest moments. Bands on this killer comp include The Tibbs, Calibro 35 and our favorite neo-soul diva, Martha Ren.
The Tibbs are a Dutch band who bring on a funky version of Hammond organ-driven retro-soul and 60s R&B. The vocals are warm and sultry, and the musicians are deeply inspired by Stax, Volt and Motown Records. Meaty, funky and beautiful.
