Let's kick off the summer with the Californian summer edition of ‘Groovy, sexy and soulful’! I try to recreate the Californian feeling between the mid-seventies and mid-eighties, when FM radio played this kind of music all day on the West Coast. I gave it a tiny funky, disco-ish, 'Professor Eddy' twist. For some reason the West Coast sound wasn’t popular at all in the Netherlands. The only Dutch representative I could find was The President. Even mega-selling artists in the US, like Hall & Oates, had marginal sales in the Netherlands. The Dutch were more into new wave acts from the UK. So it’s time to catch up now! The songs by Bruce Hibbard and Larsen-Feiten Band are on the superb new compilation 'Too slow to disco volume 2'. Enjoy! You can find previous parts of Groovy, Sexy & Soulful and more information about the tracks on my blog http://professoreddy.blogspot.nl/2015/06/groovy-sexy-soulful-part-52-californian.html and Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/djprofessoreddy
