Kon On My Way (Colored Vinyl) 2LP

Kon & Amir furthered the art of digging throughout the late 90’s/ early 00’s. Their incredible compilations featured some of the rarest Soul / Disco / Funk / Boogie pieces you can think of and their DJ sets were legendary. Going off and doing their solo projects in the late 00’s Amir started 180 Proof Records and Kon went off to release some of the most sought out Re Edits on labels such as Basic Fingers and Hands Of Time. All this leading up to the release of his debut album of some of the freshest modern Soul we have heard since the first Sunburst Band LP. Featuring all original production, Kon leaves the vocal duties for veteran singers Amy Douglas and UK maintsay Ben Westbeech. Pressed on transparent Gold and Red vinyl and housed in a gatefold throwback designed sleeve, the entire release is so necessary.
