Funky Coup: Korean Soul Funk & Rare Groove Nuggets

Funky Coup: Korean Soul, Funk & Rare Groove Nuggets 1973-1980 Vol. 1 (2xLP)

Release date: October 23, 2020
Label: Beatball
This compilation brings together, for the first time, the hottest soul/funk gems that moved the clubs and dancefloors during one of the darkest chapters of Korea's modern history under the Yushin dictatorship. It serves as a perfect guide to proto K-pop, featuring various hits from era-defining divas, relatively less-known rare tracks, as well as two previously unreleased instrumental tracks. These tunes offer an excellent primer on how soul, funk, jazz, and disco were adapted to Korea at the time, with most of the tracks sourced from the original master tapes (6 tracks sourced from vinyl).
