COSMIC BOOGIE|FUNK|DISCO: Rotating Soul Records – The East Liberty Quarters EP


It always puts a smile on my face whenever QUALITY MUSIC comes our way & this one, did just that with the Super-Fresh Intergalactic Boogie sounds running right through this 6 track EP from Pittsburgh-based trio Rotating Souls. The EP came through as an email just this morning so I don’t  know much about them, but by listening through I would say they are deeply influenced by Giorgio Moroder, as you can hear that classic funky 80’s Synth-Bass vibes running right through the release.

Really digging this and can’t wait to hear more of Rotating Souls.. & props to them for still putting good music like this on on Vinyl too.

The EP is out on Vinyl! & Digital, click for more info:
