Soul Diesel Vol. 2 is the second installment from the Soul Diesel “strain,” a distinctly potent brand of smoldering soul-jazz made popular by 2016’s Record Store Day box set offering, Jazz Dispensary: Cosmic Stash, in which varying styles of jazz (e.g. soul-jazz, jazz-funk, fusion, etc) were compiled to compliment the effects of Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid cannabis strains.

The latest offering in the ongoing series boasts searing grooves and expansive audio remastered from the original analog tapes, pressed on smoking hot 180-gram opaque orange swirl vinyl. This limited edition RSD-exclusive release features original, psychedelic paint-marbling artwork by fine artist Danielle Garza aka Ellierex and packs a sonic punch with huge drum breaks, breakneck grooves, and rare and long-out-of-print tracks from the Prestige and Galaxy Records vaults making their return to vinyl.
