Members of the New York-based retro funk label Desco Records play an old-school, 'Live At The Apollo'-style soul revue. Using traditional analogue recording techniques, they aim to recreate the sonics of classic '60s/'70s rare groove, but their storming live show proves it isn't just an exercise in nostalgia. After Jones was treated for cancer last year, forcing the cancellation of some Dap-Kings live dates, the group should make a storming return in 2014 with their new album 'Give the People What They Want'.
