The Brooklyn imprint complied on the 10 tracks they believe best represent Helsinki label Timmion Records’ eclectic range of soulful gems.

Daptone co-founder Gabe Roth descries the connection between the two labels as a “kinship built on mutual respect and a shared love of raw, soulful music. Though we have helped them distribute several titles before, we are excited to be partnering with them on a grander scale.”

Prior to the release of Bad Education, Daptone shared the unreleased track ‘Until You’re Mine’, by artist Wanda Felicia. Also offered up is a four-track compilation sampler featuring Nicole Willis, Pratt & Moody, Jonny Benavidez and Bardo Martinez & The Soul Investigators.
