Enjoy this new Smooth Sailing part! The track by Slave singer Steve Arrington is an exclusive one! It's from a great new album called 'Opolopo Mutants Volume 2' that will be released on Tokyo Dawn Records next week:

"Reopening the doors to his private zoo of mutant pets once again, mad funk scientist Opolopo shows how his sonic radiation and mutagenic chemicals can bring on a whole new level of funk. This second installment of the series features groove mutations of Slave front man Steve Arrington, disco house veteran Joey Negro with his Sunburst Band, Sweden's Drop Out Orchestra with Vinny Vero, the jazz masters of The High Five Quintet with Italian soul crooner Mario Biondi and other highlights. Funk mutations of TDR classics are also featured, including UK soul giants Personal Life, Positive Flow with soul supremo Omar, Portformat with the mothership connection Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anne Muldrow."

Alpines is a UK electro pop duo based in Kingston upon Thames in South London. The two members are Bob Matthews (guitar and production) and Catherine Pockson (pianist, singer/songwriter). Since forming in 2010 the band has toured and supported The Naked and Famous, Emeli Sande and Florence + The Machine. Alpines release their debut album 'Oasis' on their own label, Untrue Records two months ago.
