music mix | marina soul club 022

The Marina Soul Club LA mix series is back with some super yacht sounds, just in time for the official start of summer!

Please head over to my Mixcloud page to listen to Mix 022 (and the twenty-one prior sets!) for a dose of sun-drenched musical goodness spanning 70s soft rock, breezy jazz, lite disco, mellow 80s, island grooves and coastal vibes.

As usual (except for last month’s extra treat), the smoothness comes wrapped in 15 tunes, for a perfect hour-long ‘getaway’ whether via your headphones at work, your car speakers during a commute, or on the bluetooth speaker at home while you sip on a glass of pinot noir. Enjoy!

P.S. – Save The Date: FRIDAY JULY 2nd as Marina Soul Club returns to Melody Wine Bar Los Angeles for our first in-person event since March 2020!!

We’re now at a dozen Marina Soul Club mixes in the Mixcloud! Twelve finds us navigating from Honolulu to Chicago to Toronto in just the first 10 minutes, with a later stop in Rio de Janeiro for some authentic MPB and samba by Joyce and Airto Moreira, respectively.

For me, however, the quality that I enjoy most from this twelfth upload is the even balance between more obscure artists like Greenwood, John Valenti and Craig Ruhnke, and artists from the pantheon of smooth, such as Ambrosia, Robbie Dupree, Kenny Loggins, and Michael McDonald.

Hope you dig this one too!
