Groovy, Sexy And Soulful Part 32 In The Mood

Picture: Minnie Riperton
Enjoy this 32nd edition of ‘Groovy, sexy & soulful’! It was made after I’d heard a mix from Breakbot (I borrowed a snippet from his 'Bedtime stories'). Breakbot is a very cool French electro producer and DJ, who also co-directed one short film, 'Overtime'. It won the Ottawa International Animation Festival award for 'Best Graduate Film' in 2005. Breakbot is most recognized for his remixes. He reworked songs for Justice, R√∂yksopp, Digitalism, Phoenix and Chromeo, among others. The music video of his song 'Baby I'm Yours' became a summer hit on MTV Pulse in France three years ago. Recently Breakbot resurfaced with his debut album 'By your side'. The album arrived in the US last spring.

'The windmills of your mind' is my tribute to singer Noel Harrison. Last Saturday he died at his home in Devon (England), aged 79, He wrote the song for the movie 'The Thomas Crown affair', starring Steve McQueen. It won the category 'best song' at the 1968 Oscars.
