Groove. What is it? As complex and diverse as mood; as infectious and innovative as melody and as inclusive and instinctive as rhythm itself, “Groove” is a term often lacking in today’s overly-saturated and easily digestible pop consumerism. It is when an artist or band slips into a relaxed, yet uniform swagger and things that usually wouldn’t, start fitting into place. It’s what brings all pieces of the pie together perfectly and when everything seems so right you wish it would never end. It is also something that makes you want to shake your ass, whatever time of day it is and it is to these attributes that these compilations are dedicated.
A massive collection of tunes from the global contemporary deep-funk underground scene who have been recreating the sounds of the late 60s and early 70s in an authentic style. Steeped in retro-ism, but pushing a new and exhilarating take on the blueprint laid down by seminal artists of the past. Most of the tunes throughout these collections were released as 45s which makes their presence here even more special.
Yo, EK! These goodies are for you. Happy Birthday & Stay on the Groove brother!
