Kanteena presents Smoove & Turrell + support and after party with DJ Sam Flanagan …
Smoove & Turrell began in the post millennium North East of England with a group of working class lads and a shared passion for soul.
Now one of the most consistent performers of their unique UK soul style and favourite of BBC 6 Music Presenter and fellow soul head Craig Charles, they bring their extensive touring experience and appeal to Kanteena for their Lancaster debut!

The highly acclaimed live Northern Soul influenced band from the North East of England delivers the smoothest funk and soul sounds combined with Turrell’s outstanding classic soul man vocals. Their material draws on subject matters which are aimed to make us stop and think, with songs such as ‘Hate Seeking Missile’ balanced fittingly with uplifting stompers such as ‘I Feel Alive’, guarantee to get even the most resistant of dancers toe-tapping.
Their latest album “Stratos Bleu” sees the boys depart from their trademark northern funk sound to explore their dancier side, continuing in the tradition of bringing foot-stomping music with a message.
Despite lockdown, the album scored the band their first official UK charts Number 1 (Dance Album Chart) as well as making a healthy dent in the Overall album Top 40. Alongside this they’ve scored the Album of the Day accolade at BBC 6 music, cementing the fact that 6 albums in, their brand of gritty realism doused in dancefloor euphoria is more relevant than ever.
Local support act to be announced.
Official after party soundtrack provided by DJ Sam Flanagan till the early hours. Get yourselves stuck in.
