SOULFUL TORINO RECORDSPublished on Giovedì, 06 Gennaio 2011
Run by Luis and Jimmy, Record Kicks sub-label Soulful Torino Records is responsible for a number of wicked releases. The collaboration between RK and Soulful Torino began with the reissue of Hector Rivera's much saught-after latin soul hit "I Wanna Chance For Romance". Just as noteworthy is the object of the second RK/Soulful Torino collabo, Enzo Bontempi's original score for the ITALIAN SPIDERMAN movie, which includes top tunes "Italian Spiderman Theme" / "Bangarang" out on a tasty 45 or Digital Download.
Luis and Jimmy also produced the first single by The SOULFUL TORINO ORCHESTRA, which includes members of top Italian bands such as The Bluebeaters, Afrika Unite and Statuto. The band's first single "Soul Burger" is a shoutin R&B instrumental with a catchy bass and heavy drums, with a remix by Bolognina DJ Tib on the flip. And last but definitely not least, 2 mega rare and ultra in-demand tropical funk tracks from the late 60s by The Soul Fantastics, repressed and available on 45/Digital Download: "Funky Pluggin" / "Soul Train". Hot stuff!
Other than digging for rare gems to reissue on their Soulful Torino Records, Luis and Jimmy also organize regular Soulful Torino events in their city, like the infamous Gran Varietà, Tropico Club, The Velvet Soul Club and many more. You can catch them selecting the best floor-warming soul, funk, popcorn, R&B, latin, mambo, jazz, blues and tittyshakers on 45s. To get updates and for all the info click here. Watch out world, Torino has got much groove!
