Smooth Sailing: Summer Cruises & Slow Dances

Picture: Vogue
This Smooth Sailing part is what I call a typical Professor Eddy mix. It contains soul, disco, funk, new wave and some chill out tracks, summarized as Funky Chill. Hopefully the music makes you feel like being on a boat, cruising to a tropical island. By the way, did you already check out my collaboration mix with Huas?

FINS is an up and coming alternative / electrofunk / jazzcore band, taking the Greater Boston area by storm. High school students, Sam Glick, Alex Mapes-Frances, Max Weiss, and Kami Sabghir-Frota make up the fresh new band. Mapes-Frances' and Glick's unique vocals and the distinguished electronic beats come together beautifully to make some brilliant easy listening. Most FINS members have had past experiences in other bands, which has definitely worked to their advantage.

The closing track is by Sahr. Their video is about an old guy, played by Aiden Shaw, who is in love with a younger girl. Aiden Shaw also appears in the new Bloom Twins video, Blue, doing the same trick...
