Instrumental electronic mixes that combine Contemporary Groove Jazz and blues with electronic funk.
“Grooves & Curves” is Steve "Poppa" Mutimer's third CD, and after his roots influenced, “Dry Heat”, followed by the smooth jazz tinged “Smooth”, Steve
takes an exciting musical curve into the new territory of techno groove.

His usual funky percussion is prevalent, and his bluesy melodies, driven by is son, guitarist DG Mattingley, fly in a new direction with a unique “organic” techo sound sure to please today’s music aficionado and casual listener alike.

Cool Music

I call my music "Americana Funk", a retro salute to the early days when music was created here and not imported from Europe. This music has evolved into what we know today as Rock & Roll, R&B, Country, Jazz, Soul, Folk and Blues. I go back to those beginnings for solos and riffs and wrap it all up in contemporary Jazz for cool modern sounds with a touch of nostalgia to them. I draw on my experience as a drummer and bandleader (1958 - 1972), producer (1970 - 2000), and digital music composer and music arranger (2005 - present). I put everything I know and love into this music and sincerely hope you enjoy the groove. Poppa Steve
