Smooth Sailing: FM Pop & Soulful Rock

Joan Smalls Instagram
The wind is in the sails again for a new part of Smooth Sailing! My intention was to make a mix that brings back memories of those wonderful summers in a faraway past that won’t return in any kind of way… ;-) I made it with a little help from my Smooth Operators-partner Martijn Soetens. Check out his excellent series Sunshine 70s on KX Classics every Saturday at 20.00 hrs. CET.

Two of the tracks are from the wonderful compilation album ‘Seafaring Strangers: Private Yacht’, out on Numero Group. The track by Minni is brand new. Her biography on Bandcamp tells us:

"Rooting her emotions in a deep and long romance with Bryan Ferry and Sade, Minni’s voice floats somewhere between the latter's irresistible sensuality and Annie Lenox’s fierce dynamics. Her low-register and sometimes uttered flow isn’t without bringing Nico to mind."

Enjoy this warm weather episode of Smooth Sailing! Next week a summer edition of Best Of 70s Soul.
