Infectious discofied reggae on reissued Soul Jazz compilation

unnamedAlmost 15 years ago reissue giants Soul Jazz released the excellent compilation Hustle! Reggae Disco. It’s one of the label’s most popular compilations and has been unavailable for many years.

This ground-breaking compilation has now been reissued with no less than five seminal extra cuts. It now features 13 hip-shaking killer reggae versions of funk and soul classics done in disco style. This set certainly showcases the link between dancefloors in Kingston, New York and London.

This hybrid beast of a compilation comes with dub-styled versions of classics like Anita Ward’s Ring My Bell, Risco Connection’s Ain’t No Stopping Us Now and Sugarhill Gang’s Rappers Delight.

So put on your best dress, your dancing shoes and let your mind go. Because this album is a mind-blowing visit to Studio 54 in Trenchtown.
