music mix | marina soul club 017

Marina Soul Club Mix 017 is up now on Mixcloud!  I originally curated the tracklist for inclusion on Yacht Rock Miami‘s “Smooth Gravy” Thanksgiving Day broadcast.  Given the 2pm PST/5pm EST time slot, the mix’s uptempo, high energy kickoff seemed right on time to fight off the onset of our listeners’ food comas and/or to rev up their appetites for second helpings.  

The vibes move from disco to ‘yacht soul’ to soft rock to jazzy pop, closing out with a couple of lovely reggae numbers.  The tune Night Moves, written and originally recorded by Michael Franks and appearing on MSC Mix 010 , shows up once again, this time in a lively bossa jazz style by chanteuse, Dee Dee Bridgewater.  Check out the full tracklist below.  Much love and gratitude to Captain Juan Luv and his mates at Yacht Rock Miami for inviting Marina Soul Club LA to his radio platform.
