Groove Salad Volume 2 is out now, and it features my song, “The Last Resort” along with some other great downtempo music.
Soma FM, “a listener-supported, commercial-free internet-only radio station,” and probably my favorite online radio station, broadcasts a number of genre-driven channels, one of which is Groove Salad. Groove Salad plays mostly instrumental downtempo, groove-oriented ambient, and trip hop music (Nightmares on Wax, St. Germain, Boards Of Canada), and it’s one of the largest online broadcasters of this style.
Since Soma FM is commercial-free, the station relies on listener support in order to stay online. When you donate $40 you can get a copy of the Groove Salad Volume 2 compilation on CD, which features a tasty selection of songs from the Groove Salad playlist.
I’m a big fan of Soma FM, and Groove Salad in particular, so I’m honored and excited that my song “The Last Resort” was included on the album.
And, saving the best for last, I want to tell you about Personal Life, and their album Morning Light. Robert Strauss, Stuart Lisbie, and the rest of the Personal Life group have made a beautiful Jazz Funk album that reminds me a lot of Incognito (and that’s a big compliment). The song “Distance Can Be Sweet” is my favorite track from the release. Go listen to this one as soon as you can.
I just discovered this fan-made video for my song, “Speed of Soul,” and had to share it with you. I have no idea where the visual content came from, and I don’t know anything about the person who made it. But it’s cool, right?
