A 01: Smooth Sailing feat. Lena Fennell

(Spichiger/Kunz 2007)

The title track and single, Smooth Sailing is an instant dance floor classic. Sexy and smooth, the track features the sultry vocals of Lena Fennell (Magnetfisch) over a body jacking funk bassline highlighted by counterpoint melodies and harmonic elements. A convergence of house and minimal techno, with references to Detroit and the songs of Matthew Herbert, Smooth Sailing is the flagship of the new style of Groove. >>>

B 02: Bubblebomb

(Spichiger 2007)

The B-side sleeper hit, Bubblebomb, is the penultimate incarnation of the classic electronic-funk style. With its roots in Afrika Bambata and Parliment, Bubblebomb truely represents funk for the 21st century.

B 03: Smooth Sailing Rmx

minigroove Remix by Breandan Davey (Spichiger/Kunz/Davey 2007)

Strip Smooth Sailing down to its raw elements, distort, twist, mangle, and rebuild. This is the recipe that Breandan Davey used to cook up his darker and moodier version of Smooth Sailing in what is Breandan's trademark minimal funk-tech style.
