Daptone Records teams up with Scion for sampler
You've heard Band of Horses in Ford commercials and Wilco in advertisements for Volkswagen. Yes, car companies have begun love indie music too. Now, collaborations are reaching past the automotive ads, and steering into the recording studio.
Scion, a member of the Toyota Motor Sales family, has partnered up with Daptone records to help sponsor and produce a remix album. The compilation will feature revamped tracks from various artists that are on the Daptone label, such as Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and the Budos Band, jazzed up by the likes of Mark Ronson, Kenny Dope and Mad Professor.
The tunes that make up Scion CD Sampler v. 19 - Daptone Records Remixed are now available for download on iTunes and Rhapsody. Hard copies are due out at the end of November, and will include a second disc with the original versions of the artists’ songs. All proceeds from the purchases of the album will go directly back to the Daptone artists as part of Scion’s initiative to help support the music community.
