Here is a link to a great interview with Daptone Records founder Gabe Roth on the Waxpoetics website.  He is also the producer of Sharon Jones’ latest cd, “I Learned the Hard Way” which dropped on April 6th.  There is a cool promo video from it here.

Gabe is one of my favorite producers working today.  His stuff with Sharon Jones, Amy Winehouse and the Budos Band has been tearing up my iTunes and contributed to the soundtrack of many Venice BBQ’s over the last several years;  Always marked by vintage analog sound and humorous creativity.
