Various Artists - Rainer Trueby Presents SoulglidingBBE
"Soulgliding", the compilation courtesy of DJ/Producer Rainer Trueby is a breezy collection of late seventy early eighties mellow grooves and boogie tunes. It's a gorgeous compilation of hidden gems from familiar artists as well as the obscure. A nice reminder that among the synth heavy party jams there were plenty of melodic compositions worthy of repeated spins today. The dreamy soundscapes of Peter Brown's "Without Love" sets the mood with meditative rhythms. "Lady Of The Night" is mellow soul jazz courtesy of LA composer Les Hooper. "It Ain't No Big Thing" is an infectious mid-tempo boogie from Donna McGhee. "Dust To Dust" is sublime spacey soul from Cloud One, the moniker created by Patrick Adams. There are other highlights throughout here that make this a musical paradise you shouldn't miss.
