Now available, the latest in the Soul Togetherness series from Expansion records

The track listing should say it all, but if you do need a refresh or a listen then the trusty Juno player lets you get your ears on it

Back and as powerful ever, The Soul Togetherness series presents this year's collection of exceptional modern soul room floor fillers. The flavour is particularly upbeat following a cool start from the best new Jam & Lewis production in years from The Gap Band's Charlie Wilson. The beat picks up for star remixer turned artist Opolopo with a killer song from his debut album, the tempo maintained with Louie Vega's Latin Soul mix for the 3 Winans, Joe Buhdha's work out with Terri Walker, a stunning remake of the James Mason classic Sweet Power by Diplomats Of Soul, the Nigel Lowis mix for McCrei it all it's Philly style glory, and disco heaven from Paris Toon and Los Charly's Orchestra. There are more midtempo moments from Syleena Johnson, JD73, Kenya (a Tom Glide rework) and a gospel masterpiece by Lorraine Clarke-McGhie, while both Ashling Cole and Aaron Parnell Brown (Soul Talk remix) deliver pure soul of the highest standard. The tradition of this CD complete here too with the inclusion of a tune from the past, a rarity from 1980 by Creators. Massive.

Note that you may want to check amazon out for some info on the differences between the digital and the cd packages (there's 16 v 20 tracks but it reads as if you do purchase the cd you can still download the extra tracks )

Enjoying this as always.   This feels like volume 4 of 2015 following Soul Love, Life & Shine releases on the label in addition to the usual Luxury Soul release, Outta Sight's Soul on the Real Side, Dome's Soul Lounge, Reel People Miami 2015 and other compilations.   As the Northern Soul compilations reach saturation and many now go for early out of copyright very early sources (quality labels excepted), the Modern Soul compilation area feels thriving and forward looking.  A mention for the wonderful Ethereal Magic release, mellow, varied and excellent listening.

If you order the CD at Amazon you can download the extra tracks for free.  Not sure how it works for vinyl.

I enjoy how these releases inspire further research and album purchases.  I try to support the new artists where I can based on discoveries from the compilations.

Another excellent addition to the series. It’s incredible that it’s now the 16th! The style of which has changed over the years, as you’d expect, but the quality has always been high. It prompts me to remember the King’s Hall allnighters in the late 90s and the fantastic tunes played in the modern room which prompted the series to start. I’ll start a separate thread about it.

yeah . some real good nights at the kings hall in the modern room. just kind of fizzled out in the end . stoke probably not renowned as a hotbed for modern but good while it lasted.
