We at Daptone stand in unity with protestors across the country whose outrage at this country’s seemingly endless racist violence has boiled over. The recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery cannot be seen as outliers due to individual bad actors, but rather just the most recent acts to be caught on camera in a pattern of systemic violence toward people of color that has been the shame of our country since the first Native American was slaughtered by European immigrants five hundred years ago. It's time for us to look in the mirror as a country and face up not only to our history, but more urgently to the rampant state of racism around us today. Only the privileged among us have had the luxury to look away. If we refuse to see this painful truth, if we do not shine the brightest light upon it, if we tolerate this status quo and don’t fight against it with all our power, we become complicit in these crimes. Let this be the moment when we all say “enough.” Not just the protesters and activists, among us, but the police, politicians, judges, business owners, teachers, and those of us who work at record labels. We must not settle for a racist America. We can and must overcome this sickness, not with violence, but with action, and above all, with love for our fellow man.

Black Lives Matter.

As a token of support, we will be auctioning off a number of original Daptone test pressings, the proceeds of which will be donated in their entirety to the following organizations: The Movement for Black Lives and The Bail Project. The auction will be live later this week, stay tuned.

Cochemea "Chito's Song"

It is our distinct pleasure to present "Chito's Song", the latest single from Daptone's Electro-Sax Space warrior, Cochemea. The song is a tribute to his Uncle, a free spirit who nourished Cochemea's love and appreciation for their kindred music, proving a roadmap for his own musical and ancestral journey: an exploration into the bonds we have with our past, present, and future.

Vicky Tafoya - Forever

For the latest installment of Tomorrow's Hits Today - Penrose Records is proud to introduce the newest members of the family, the Inland Empire’s own Vicky Tafoya and the Big Beat. Born in Santa Ana CA and currently residing in Colton CA, Vicky started singing acapella doo-wop in the late 80s for the So. Cal. Doo-Wop Society and went on to co-found the Big Beat in 2001.

Their debut single on Penrose is a moody minor chord ballad featuring a reverb-laden guitar solo and beautiful girl group harmonies behind Vicky’s effortless yet haunting vocal about two people longing to be together… Forever.

Napoleon Demps - Norma Jean

This week in the Tomorrow's Hits Today series, it brings us great pleasure to introduce the baddest new voice in the land - Napoleon Demps. Making his debut on Daptone, the flint Michigan native grew up listening to Soul luminaries OV Wright, Willie Hutch, and Sam Cooke, whose influence let Demps down a path to becoming an accomplished Soul Singer himself - scoring his first hit at the age of 24 in the still-thriving Southern Chitlin circuit of the early aughts.

His Daptone debut, "Norma Jean", is a funky soul groover that lands somewhere between the nuanced big city sounds Chicago and Detroit were pumping out in the late '60s.

Menahan Street Band - Queens Highway

Menahan Street Band are back with an atmospheric slow burner that's sure to part the sonic clouds and shine some much needed light on the quarantine doldrums. The opening guitar lick, accompanied by percolating bass and a gorgeous flourish of horns provide an ethereal, almost psychedelic bedrock for the groove to build upon. The vocal melody, courtesy of The Gospel Queens, enters like the first warm breeze of spring, immersing the listener in a wash of soulful ecstasy.

A small, albeit extraordinary sample of their forthcoming album "The Exciting Sounds Of". Stay tuned!

Orquesta Akokán - 4 De Octubre

The second single of our Tomorrow's Hits Today series is by none other than Orquesta Akokán. Their latest single, "4 de Octubre", is a lucumi fever dream of sublime mambo. Tata's introduction for Chango segues into blistering horns played with a fervor that transcends the earthly realm, seducing the listener as the melody gives way to the hypnotic rhythm of the Bata.

As the groove builds Tata's poem prayer seems to beckon the horns and chorus to re-enter, allowing the music to crest and swoon, creating new sonic vistas in its wake.

To our beloved Fans, Friends and Family,

In order to keep our staff and community safe, we have decided to shut down the House of Soul studio and will cease shipping web-store and direct orders until further notice. It was a difficult decision but the health and safety of our employees are of utmost importance. You are still welcome to support our store and place orders but we cannot guarantee when the items will ship. As a token of gratitude for your continued support in such unpredictable times, all orders placed from now until we commence shipping will get 20% taken off automatically. You’ll see this discount at checkout.

For anyone that has an existing order that hasn't shipped yet, we will be applying the discount to your order within the next two days (pre-orders excluded, see below). However, if you'd prefer a full refund please let us know by emailing [email protected] with your order number.

For those who have pre-ordered Penrose 45s by Thee Sinseers, Los Yesterdays, Jason Joshua, The Altons, and Thee Sacred Souls, please be aware that due to us not being able to ship orders and record stores possibly not being open for business by April 10th, we have decided to move the street date to June 19th. We will not be shipping these pre-orders orders until early June. If you would like to have your order refunded instead, we are happy to do so, just email us at [email protected] with your order number.

In the meantime, we have made our upcoming Lee Fields Record Store Day release, Let's Get A Groove On available digitally now, as well as the full Penrose Records Vol. 1 compilation. Links for both are in the comments below.

We are all brainstorming ways to keep getting music to you so stay tuned, you'll hear from us again soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We'll get through this together!

Love,

The Daptone Family.

Hi. I just bought an album from your label. A download code was included. I cannot redeem it because the Daptone website disallows it. What's the issue?
I love so many of the artists on Daptone. What's the deal with the merch? Most has been sold out for months and I can't find it anywhere.
