For the better part of 15 years, Helsinki's own Timmion Records has released some of the most exciting soul sides happening today. To help spread the Timmion love, Daptone Records staffers and brass made a list of their favorite Timmion tracks from the past couple years. Presented here is Bad Education, Vol. I, the culmination of weeks of deliberation and infighting (mainly due to their unusually high batting average) - 10 tracks that best represent the eclectic wealth of soulful riches Timmion Records has to offer.

Out July 19th. Pre-order now: dapt.one/TimmionHits

Pre-order options include: Limited arctic-swirl vinyl available (exclusively from the Daptone Shop - 1 per person), Carlton Jumel Smith exclusive 45 of "Woman You Made Me," Timmion Slipmats and T-Shirts!

Announcing the new album from Miami organ group Scone Cash Players - As The Screw Turns, out June 21st via Miami label: Flamingo Time/Mango Hill Records and distributed exclusively by Daptone Records.

Out June 21st / Pre-Order now at the Daptone Shop: dapt.one/AsTheScrewTurns

(Limited RANDOM color vinyl available while they last!)

Hammond organist and bandleader Adam Scone, also an original member of The Sugarman 3, came up with the idea for the album while traveling on the road with Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings on the #Daptone Super Soul Revue tour in Europe. The album features Naomi Shelton and other renowned Daptone Family musicians. When they put the screws on you, you have to dig deep.

Catch the video premiere for “Canned Champagne” on PopMatters & EARMILK!

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings "I Learned the Hard Way" - Intro featuring Lee Fields

One of our most treasured memories is the day we filmed the music video for Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings “I learned The Hard Way” directed by Philip Di Fiore back in 2010. The intro features a very fed up Sharon ready to give her cheating lover a piece of her mind when her friend Lee Fields tries to diffuse the situation, outside of “Binky’s Lounge” of course (it was actually Nublu on Ave C). Who knew they were such fine actors! Congratulations to Lee Fields & The Expressions on the release of their new album, It Rains Love, on Big Crown Records.

Carlton Jumel Smith - This Is What Love Looks Like!

Carlton Jumel Smith is back at it with an album full of contemporary soul gold: 1634 Lexington Avenue - Out May 10th on Timmion Records.
LTD Translucent Green Vinyl available for pre-order NOW exclusively at the Daptone Shop: dapt.one/CarltonJumelSmith

The material mined here is none other than the vintage groove troves of classic 1970's r&b, something the Cold Diamond & Mink crew brews up effortlessly. The songwriting and expression by Carlton carry strong echoes of Curtom productions, Memphis soul and naturally Motown. We're talking about musical traditions he's incorporated into his expression since witnessing James Brown at the Apollo as an 8-year old.
