You may already be familiar with the tall haired, north-eastern gentleman – Smoove as one of the founding members, producer, and resident bongo player with Geordie soul outfit – Smoove & Turrell. But the man has got many strings to his bow and in case you didn’t already know, he’s a jolly good remixer, DJ, and selector too…
After cutting his teeth and honing his chops on the respected Acid Jazz record label as well as his own – Wack Records imprint he’s since found a permanent home in Jalapeno Records where he releases the bulk of his musical output. Apart from Smoove & Turrell, his first solo outing on the label was a compilation of some of his finest remixes all collated together in one very DJ friendly package entitled ‘First Class’.
As it was well-received, for the next instalment he’s sticking with the theme, and stamping his authority on postage-based names, dubbing this batch ‘Recorded Delivery’.
This time round there’s some truly killer cuts from the likes of: Bahama Soul Club, Nicole Willis, Myles Sanko, Renegades Of Jazz, and of course – Smoove & Turrell. All of which get a healthy sprinkle of the Smoove production magic. Yes this truly is something you would like to receive through your letterbox.
And you can make that happen! If your letterbox is larger than 12” that is- as the record will be released on vinyl as a full-length LP. This will be the first outing on vinyl for many of the tracks (Izo FitzRoy, John Turrell, Nicole Willis, Mysdiggi and M.O.N.C) which makes it a must-have for DJs and collectors alike – it’s definitely something to write home about.
