Domestic Foreign Records

 I realized it's been a while since I posted about music, so it came as almost serendipitous when I caught wind of the new release from Atlanta-cum-Pittsburgh funk and soul record label, Rotating Souls.  The label's sixth release thus far comes to us in the form of a split release between Wakayama, Japan's Oyama Edit (御山△ EDIT), and Sad Ghost, production moniker of Johannesburg, South Africa-based Chris Keys.

I honestly know very little about either one save for what I was able to read on their respective SoundCloud pages, but based on the sound samples from this release, I don't think this is going to be a release fans of the boogie/synth genre are going to want to miss.  Rotating Souls has had a great track record with their releases thus far, and I doubt that the label's architect, Pittsburgh ex-patriot, Curt Jackson, has any interest in putting out a bad record.

You can check out his earlier releases on the Rotating Souls website, and what's better, you can hear sound samples of this record, as well as previous releases, on their more-frequently updated SoundCloud page.

In the meantime, check out the terrific Japanese Breeze Mix, by Mori Ra (one half of Oyama Edit) done in anticipation of this release.  Otherwise, keeps your eyes peeled for this one, as it's expected to drop pretty soon!
