MOTOWN MOE Tropic of Groove Windee Records
True to his clever artist name, charting producer/keyboardist/mixer and mastering engineer Motown Moe (Kevin Dingle) hails from Detroit. In addition to eight solo projects, he’s worked with artists from all over the world, including fellow Michigan Smooth Jazz performer Nate Harasim. Moe’s latest album TROPIC OF COOL is a sexy, keyboard driven collection of enticing, mood setting, Chill-Jazz grooves, hypnotic melodies and sensuous atmospheres. The first single, “Beach Breeze,” will introduce new fans to the Motown Moe vibe, as the title track leads to more horn-infused, synth mastery on the mystical “Tropic of Groove,” while he adds a little acoustic guitar and sax on “Light of Life.” TROPIC OF GROOVE brings the heat with a beat! ~JONATHAN WIDRAN
