Soulist is Molesting Laura

Soulist is Molesting Laura
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2012-09-06

Last year we started talking with DJ Soulist about him preparing a jazzy, soulful, deep and groovy mix of covers for our Molesting Laura series. Early february he told us 'next week'. Let's make it short and a few emails later we were in June, and only 20 minutes of this mix were ready. Soulist never stops between his DJ gigs, the What The funk parties, the Souleance records and gigs with Fulgeance… Mid-july he told us he was only 2 tracks short and finally mid-august he finally sent us this marvelous, nearly one year in the making, 11 track selection. We'll let you recognize who penned the tracks covered here, it's mostly classics you should easily relate to!

Tracklisting :
01. ‪Esther Phillips - And I Love Him‬
02. Sam Cooke - Summertime
03. Curtis Mayfield - Hard Times
04. The Professionals - The Godfather
05. ‪The Mad Lads - Get Out Of My Life, Woman‬
06. Etta James - Leave Your Hat On
07. Betty Chung - Bang Bang
08. Sharon Cash - Fever
