Review: A duo that have a phenomenal amount of fans despite never being picked up by the mainstream, Jalapeno duo Smoove & Turrell return after their 2009 debut Antique Soul. Combining funk beats with Turrell's gutsy and gravelly vocals works wonders again on big tunes like the Northern Soul stomp of "Higher" or the mellow nu-disco of "In Deep". This combination of producer and singer have struck gold again, and Eccentric Audio should see them seriously make an impact this time around.

Review: An exclusive to Juno Download, nu-soul duo and funk favourites Smoove & Turrell pluck the breakneck stomp of "Slow Down" from their Eccentric Audio album as a single, whilst also treating their considerable fanbase with some excellent new remixes of "In Deep". The sweet, gospel-tinged '70s funk gets a polished, club-friendly retouch from Smoove himself, while disco dons Kraak & Smaak strip away the raw, organic drums and bathe "In Deep" in a glorious techy remake. The funky house vibes are added to with further ace mixes from DJ Friction and Diesler.

Review: Cheeky Geordie funkster Smoove and regular vocalist Turrell will shortly release their second full-length, Eccentric Audio. To raise awareness, they've primed two radio-friendly cuts for a lead-in single. "Slow Down" has 'end of night anthem' written all over it. In big black letters. Turrell does his best to sound like Frank Sinatra, laying down a classic vocal atop a catchy musical backing that sits somewhere between urgent funk and big band swing. "Broke", meanwhile, offers a more classic soul flavour, Turrell coming on like a 70s Motown vocalist over bright and breezy grooves that ooze summery goodness. Catchy, radio-friendly and, ultimately, lovingly sweet.
