It's going to be different. I'm just going to go with it. That's what soul music is all about

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are a funk/soul band, formed in New York and signed to Daptone Records. They are spearheads of a revivalist movement that aims to capture the essence of funk/soul music as it was at its height in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s. Part of the way this is achieved is to shun modern digital recording methods in favour of using traditional analog recording equipment.
