Smooth Sailing: Love Making & Disco Dancing

Picture Joan Smalls Vogue April 2013
Enjoy this new episode of Smooth Sailing! Let’s take a look at Cineplexx (that’s the Argentinian Sebastian Litmanovich, now living in London) who for his eleventh album 'Florianopolis' decided on a unique version of tropical cosmic disco. His influences range everything from electronica to bossa, and the track on this cloudcast also proves his love for funk. 'Te Quiero' is a slow disco jam for the beach, laced with funky guitars and graced by Litmanovich’s tender voice (source: Mercedes-Benz Mixed Tape).

I'm looking forward to the new Dimitri From Paris compilation album, 'Dimitri From Paris In The House of Disco' that will be out on June, 15. On the Defected page he says:

“This new compilation is a testament to how Disco and House are intertwined three decades after their inception. Rather than focusing solely on classic original recordings, I wanted to show how those sounds were made contemporary without losing their spirit. I would like to dedicate this collection to the recently deceased Godfather Of House, Frankie Knuckles. A key person in the mutation of Disco into House, he best described House music as ‘Disco's Revenge’.”

Thanks to The King Mob for the inspiration! I borrowed some of the songs he chose for his cloudcasts. So if you like my cloudcast, you certainly have to check out his great work!
