With apologies to anyone who spent £100 buying the original on Discogs...
Dimitri From Paris's much sought-after Salsoul Mastermix is to be reissued on double CD, double vinyl and digitally on 15 September.
Dimitri From Paris presents Salsoul Mastermix was initially released by Octave Lab as a Japan-only CD product in 2015. It was a two-disc affair: CD1 housed a DJ mix by Dimitri consisting entirely of Salsoul cuts from the likes of Double Exposure, Loleatta Holloway, Inner Life and The Salsoul Orchestra, while CD2 was home to 10 of Dimitri's own re-edits/remixes of Salsoul classics.
Since then, copies have been trading hands on eBay and Discogs for prices approaching three figures, while a double LP of the re-edits was released for this year's Record Store Day and sold out in hours. So now Salsoul is putting frustrated collectors out of their misery, and re-releasing the original two-disc set worldwide.
