Reggae covers of funk and soul classics.
Out of print since it was originally released in 2002, and one of Soul Jazz Records’ most popular compilation titles, Hustle! Reggae Disco is getting an expanded reissue featuring five new tracks spread across the new triple vinyl edition.
Uniting the dance floors of Kingston, London and New York, the compilation features reggae covers of classic disco, soul and funk tracks like Anita Ward’s ‘Ring My Bell’, Chaka Khan’s ‘I’m Every Woman’, Michael Jackson’s ‘Don’t Stop ‘til You Get Enough,’ and a version of Sugarhill Gang’s ‘Rappers Delight’ performed by Derrick Laro & Trinity for producer Joe Gibbs.
Heavily featured in early Grand Theft Auto games, Hustle! Reggae Disco showed musical influence flowing in both directions into and out of Kingston. It also happens to be packed wall-to-wall with irresistible dance-floor fire.
Hustle! Reggae Disco (Expanded 2017 Edition) will be released on triple vinyl via Soul Jazz on 3rd March. Click here to get yours now.
