Here’s April’s selection of Boat Floaters for Meet Bernard, designed to put a spring in your step as we start to look ahead to summer fun.
Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint: III. Fast, from 1990, starts things off on a meditative tip. Next up, Dizzy Gillespie’s classic Matrix is equally hypnotic. A fat lot of soul is then poured in, with Marion Black’s most well-known song Who Knows, followed by Love For Sale by Eartha Kitt. Fifth is one of my all-time faves, Can’t Live Without You, from Connie Laverne.
The BPM accelerates, and the funk and disco are dialled up, when Foot in the Door points the way to the dance floor. With luck, the beats and boogie will get you moving.
If you connect with this unmixed selection then I reckon you’d enjoy exploring my Boat Floaters Mixcloud profile (see here), where you will find monthly two-hour mixes for Loose FM, plus upbeat (“waterfall”) and more chilled (“slow flow”) mixes from last year. Thanks for your support.
Yours in music,
Ollie (Boat Floaters)
