soul-sides-2.jpgSoul Sides Oliver Wang continues to release eclectic compilations, both on his own and via his collaborative partnership with NYC based Zealous Records (who have released the two volume Soul Sides funk and soul collections). Wang’s latest mixtape, Deep Covers 2: Mas Profundo, again gathers funk and soul jams, but this time mines the vast depths of international covers. Great stuff. Below, in his own words, are the details.

Description: Deep Covers 2: Mas Profundo follows up on two previous covers-related projects: Deep Covers and Soul Sides Vol. 2: The Covers. This time though, I take it international, with 20 songs, all recorded overseas. I tried to balance things by region (otherwise, hell, I could have done an entire CD of reggae covers) but still kept the vibe oriented around soul and funk covers. It’s really astounding what one can find out there – this merely scratches the surface! Overall, I was pleased with how this mix turned out, both in terms of song selection as well as sequencing. There will definitely be a DC3 somewhere down the road but for now, enjoy this in all its global glory.
