After the demise of funk revival pioneer label Desco, founders Philip Lehman and Gabe Roth parted ways. While Roth started Daptone Records, featuring a cleaner soulful sound, Lehman created Soul Fire Records to feature a dirtier raw funk sound. Soul Fire has reissued quality rare funk records and also produced modern funk artists recorded in that old authentic way. Unfortunately, the record label ceased its activities near the end of 2003. Graze in the trash with these heavy grooves from the label.
