At times it is good to step out of your own flat to take a broader look at the whole block. The Eastern Block in this case. Soul Service and GAD Records have prepared for you a journey full of grooves from the 1970s. A must-go trip for lovers of funk rhythms, psychedelic colors and soulful grooves.
Nowadays the ‘inter-‘ prefix is perhaps chiefly associated with the Internet or interactivity, but some decades ago it would be incorporated into the names of many international organizations and initiatives of the Eastern Bloc, e.g Interkosmos, Interelektro, Intersputnik or Intervision. Following this path (and to pay tribute to the Sopot Intervision Festival) Soul Service collective proposes a groovy selection of records from countries which were actively involved in those initiatives. A jazz big-band from the GDR rubs shoulders with psychedelia from Czechoslovakia, and the Estonian cover of Frida’s song with the soul expressiveness of Polish Bizony band. You will find here real funk monsters and moments of chill in slightly washed-out colours from a few decades ago.
