RIP Desco but I'm so glad Daptone was born from you.
Desco Records was around in the mid nineties and focused on providing quality soul 45s. The Daktaris recorded on Desco before its demise and eventual growth into Daptone and Soul Fire (RIP Soul Fire but their stuff is on Truth & Soul now). A lot of the Daktaris guys went on to become members of Antibalas.
I really just love their Afro-beat sound and this song is TBTH:
TOO BALLER TO HANDLE.
Time to make a Moscow Mule and get a little back yard chill sesh action happening with this on the background.
