Gentle Daps XXV: Guest Mix by Deejay Greenman

SUBSCRIBE TO ANTS PODCAST: iTUNES, RSS, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR
English soft rock aficionado Deejay Greenman has returned with his sequel to last month's Write Your Lucky Number (Gentle Daps XXIV). He picks up where he left of and offers up another hour of rare '70s-centric soft rock of the supremely hushed, mellow variety. These two mixes are treasures, and I am thrilled they are part of the Gentle Daps canon.

Gentle Daps XXIV: Guest Mix by Deejay Greenman

SUBSCRIBE TO ANTS PODCAST: iTUNES, RSS, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR
Brighton-based Deejay Greenman caught my ear a few months ago with his excellent series of smooth AOR. I knew his knack for picking out wonderfully soft adult rock from the '60s, '70s, and '80s would make him a great fit for Gentle Daps. Lucky for us, he heard my call and put together this enchanting entry to the series. He's calling it Write Your Lucky Number.
