Smooth Sailing: From Sunset To Sunrise

The opening track is by Munich’s new soul sensation Pho Queue. Their musical journey started in a local Vietnamese restaurant. While waiting in line to order their pho (Vietnamese soup) to be exact. Enlightened and inspired by the taste of their pho, Felix Kirner and Adriano Prestel decided to head to the studio. Since then they repeated this ritual at least once a week. The result? A fresh and tasty combination of electronic music and soulful vocals. They dropped their long awaited debut album Sweet on Tokyo Dawn Records last week. It’s the perfect soundtrack to the summer of 2018!

After serving in the Vietnam War with the Marines, G.C. Cameron joined Motown act The Spinners as lead singer. He sang both lead parts on their first big hit, 1970's It's a Shame, co-written and produced by Stevie Wonder. He remained with Motown as a solo artist when The Spinners left the company in 1971. Although Cameron was not a major-seller for the label, he did have a hit with It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday, the theme song of the 1975 film Cooley High, which was later covered by Boyz II Men.

Enjoy this smooth sailing trip from sunset to sunrise!
