Volume 6 is packed with obscure soul, funk and disco goodness

UK deep house and disco dons Faze Active have compiled Volume 6 in Z Records' Under The Influence compilation series, which sees influential selectors presenting some of the lesser-known gems in their record collections.

Brothers Simon and Robin Lee are notorious for their crate-digging prowess, so don't expect too many big names to feature on the album. French disco pioneers Space make an appearance with the Lees' own edit of Mixed Up, but otherwise it's up to the likes of Leston Paul, Songhoi Band, Delight and Michele Claire to keep the funk, soul, disco, Afro and Italo gems coming. These may be unfamiliar names to most, but we're told that many of the tracks in question regularly change hands for three-figure sums on vinyl, so it seems like getting acquainted now might be a good idea! Especially given that all the tracks have been specially remastered for this collection.

The full tracklists are as follows:

01 Carol Dionne - I'm In Love With You
