Mellow Yacht Moods by The Smooth Operators

Kenny Loggins (from Loggins & Messina) once said in an interview that in his opinion ‘yacht rock’ is a combination of West Coast pop/rock, smooth jazz and R&B . Connoisseur Mr Funk aka Seasidevibes calls the sub-genre ‘soulful West Coast’ and German DJ Supermarkt (known for his very successful ‘Too slow to disco’ compilations) claims it’s music you can almost dance to. The Smooth Operators (Martijn Soetens and I) think that it’s music that sounds best on FM radio. Enjoy our mellow yacht moods!
