IN DA SOUL

Real soul fans and inveterate web browsers might - when they have a spare moment - want to check out www.dasoulrecordings.com. This is the site for Milwaukee-based label Da'soul Recordings - a committed indie set-up run by a CEO who just likes to be called "J". The label's mission statement says that their intention is to produce classic soul played and produced by real musicians. Their music is contemporary and looks to the future - but it embraces and respects the traditions and values of the past, while the label's likeable strap line is "mature grooves". Artists signed to the label include CARMEN NICKERSON, ANITA EASTERLING, CHAZZ DIXON, MURPHY EDWARDS and the wonderfully named MGO - the MATURE GROOVE ORCHESTRA … what else?
