The Pulse takes a look at Brooklyn Soul

    Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens, Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings - these, and so many other soul artists, have become a part of a soul resurgence straight out of Brooklyn. Jay-Z has sampled from the record label that remains, for the most part, a little-known but incredibly significant part of our current pop culture: Daptone. Break Through Radio celebrates Black History Month by taking stock of a true, ALL-American Folk genre, whose fires have been stoked in Bushwick, Brooklyn. It's soul, it's happening and we ask our listeners: can you dig it?
