Heavy cuts from Numero Groups' extensive back catalog. Put together like the popular Shaolin Soul compilations, Shanghai'd Soul - Episode 4 contains a diverse selections of tracks sampled by the likes of Phantogram, Common, Kanye West, Talib Kweli, Kendrick Lamar, Run The Jewels, and more. However, this compilation is way more than just break oriented funk. You get powerful deep soul numbers that surpass the idea of them just being sample sources. Many of these are hard to find rarities that only saw life in the late 60s and early 70s on limited 7" pressings. Particularity entrancing is the gospel funk of T.L. Barrett & The Youth For Christ Choir's "Like A Ship," and the Motown vibes of The Majestic Arrows' "Ladies & Wonderful Girls." Thirteen tracks in all. Released by Numero Group.
