Compilations « THE LEGACY OF » – Du groove pour passer l’été

De nouvelles compilations de classiques, mais pas que ! Du choix et de l’originalité dans les versions.

Legacy Recordings France a sorti la collection The Legacy Of. Une collection de 11 volumes de 30 titres chacunes, classées par thèmes, issus des catalogues Sony, CBS, Okeh, Philadelphia International Records, RCA et Epic. Les titres choisis ont été sélectionnés par DJ Reverend P.

Disponible uniquement en version numérique sur iTunes et Apple Music pour le moment (ont regrette que les versions physiques ne soient pas sorties en même temps, et on espère surtout qu’elles le soient dans le futur), Legacy Of s’adresse aux amateurs de funk, soul, électro funk, hip hop, jazz, disco, R&B, new jack swing, etc. fans qui apprécient les versions rares ou oubliées de titres cultes. L’intérêt de ses compilations se trouve dans le choix des titres, et leurs versions. C’est ici que le plaisir commence et se démarque des autres multiples compilations qu’on connait déjà, car au programme, vous aurez que des versions extented, des remixes rares, du live, des versions remasterisées et alternatives

Voici les 11 thèmes retenus :

funk, soul, électro funk, hip hop (East & West), jazz, disco, R&B, nu soul, new jack swing, R&B slow jamz

Agréable pour passer l’été en musique !
