Smugglers Inn Soulful Special 10/04/14

by Hot Coins on April 10, 2014

Every few months I like to dig in the crates and present some of the soulful music which inspired me over the years. By soulful, I don’t just mean Curtis style sweetness as you will see from the tracklist below. I miss my bar DJ days when I could play more ‘music’ and less bangers – but I don’t miss playing 4 times a week and having a permanent hangover!

So here it is – 2 hours of me crate digging for you. Hope you enjoy the show.
