At this point, we all know Daptone Records. But do you know about their Scandinavian counterpart, Timmion? For the past decade and a half this Helsinki-based label has put out some of the most invigorating soul and funk the music industry has to offer, and Daptone has kept a close watch.
Today the two release Bad Education Vol. 1: The Soul Hits of Timmion Records, a compilation that covers only the finest that’s been recorded in Finland over the past couple years. It wasn’t easy narrowing this list down to just ten singles, mainly due to how phenomenal Timmion’s track record is, and today we receive the full-bodied debut single from Brooklyn’s Wanda Felicia. Felicia’s been a singer-songwriter since the ’90s but with the help of Timmion’s house band, Cold Diamond and Mink, this previously unreleased track is certainly the start of something new.
