Scion Presents Daptone Remixes

Scion presents Daptone Records Remixed, a special edition compilation of remixes pulling from the catalog of Brooklyn-based, independent, funk and soul label, Daptone Records. This release is a continuation of Scion’s championing of independent thought and progressive urban culture through music-based initiatives.

You would never know it by watching their terrible commercials, but Scion actually has a pretty robust music sponsorship program, and has commissioned mixes by some serious names such as Little Brother, Nicolay, Flosstradamus, and GZA.

Scion’s commitment to artistic expression provides a platform for passionate musicians to focus on developing their art and exploring endless possibilities. Producers, remixers and MCs such as Mark Ronson, Hank Shocklee, Mad Professor, Large Professor, DJ Spinna, Kenny Dope, Wale, Ticklah, and Cool Calm Pete re-work some of the most soulful songs released by Daptone Records groups Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, The Budos Band, The Daktaris, and The Sugarman Three.

While the remixes serve up a mashed-up soup of soul food for the ears, Daptone’s classic sound proves itself just as worthy of the dance floor today as ever. The collection creates a common ground for music lovers old and young to unite, drop all pretenses and preconceptions, and just enjoy the excitement of music that moves the heart and the feet.
