Despite Smoove’s huge international success with Smoove & Turrell and his ability to craft jazz, soul, Latin, hip hop and funk into solid dancefloor tracks, he can still be found every weekend he’s not playing live jumping on a plane or a train to go and DJ across Europe. He’s always creating new tunes for his set on the fly and working his different influences into the remixes and productions he is currently on.
His new album, ‘First Class’, contains a number of exclusives including the Smoove remix of the new Third Degree track and a killer smoove remix of Afrka Bambataa, Charlie Funk and King Kamonzi. The Smoove remix of Da Wiesel has only ever been available on vinyl before and his remix of Electric Empire remains unreleased in many European territories. Smoove started his recording career for the legendary Acid Jazz label, releasing two albums as a solo artist before signing to Jalapeno Records with partner John Turrell to release two hugely successful Smoove & Turrell albums. Their last album was playlisted extensively at Radio 2 and tracks from the album have been used in more than ten film and TV syncs. Smoove is touring with the Smoove & Turrell live band, recording the next S&T album, DJing every weekend. ‘First Class’ is out October 15. For more info, check: http://www.smooveandturrell.com
