Tender Grooves

A soul mix for the lovers among us and the serious heartbroken… :-) At some points in the mix I tried to loosen things up with some nice party jams like ‘Peekin’ by Brass Construction (the lyrics about peeking on a girl are really funny!) and Harari (an edit done by a guy who almost worked for Britney Spears…). I also slipped in a track by Mayer Hawthorne whose album is the best of 2009 (so far). The first song sounds a little like a Rick James ('Super freak') parody and is taken from a great compilation album by Joey Negro, called ‘Locked in the vinyl cellar’. 'The only way is up' is a very nice rare soul gem by Otis Clay and was later covered by Yazz & the Plastic Population (which is one of the worst tracks ever...). Enjoy the 'Tender grooves'!
