Smoove & Turrell are back with their contemporary fusion of funk, soul, northern soul, hip-hop and electronica.
delivering their 7th album “Red Ellen” (named after a female labour politician who was instrumental in shaping post war attitudes to social justice) which was released in October 2023.
Firmly centred on the dancefloor and with an overwhelmingly optimistic message of love and compassion, “Red Ellen” is tempered as always with the reality of working class life in the North East of England.
The uplifting intensity of the dancefloor anthems (of which there are many) is matched by the emotional sway of the slower tracks including two beautiful tributes to lost family.
This album saw the band perform live on Sky TV, perform a guest mix on BBC 6 Music and have multiple singles playlisted on Jazz FM.
