Since debuting in 1997, Groove Armada have proven to be one of the most influential forces in dance music. They’ve proved that it’s possible to bravely explore a multitude of sounds while achieving critical and commercial success. It’s a trait that’s apparent within a selection of their best loved songs. From the dancehall dub of ‘Superstylin’’ to the crossover pop of ‘Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control)’ the dancefloor-igniting ‘I See You Baby’ & the woozy sunset vibes of ‘At The River’, Groove Armada have consistently and uncompromisingly followed their own vision.
The duo – Tom Findlay and Andy Cato – have achieved three UK Top 10 albums; three Grammy nominations; a BRIT nomination; and a succession of hit singles that are still being discovered by new fans to this day. Despite having formed a quarter-of-a-century before streaming exploded, they still command the attention of almost two million monthly listeners at Spotify. They’ve also collaborated with or remixed countless high profile artists, notably Madonna, Paul Simon, Fatboy Slim, Calvin Harris, Neneh Cherry and Bryan Ferry.
Morcheeba’s global reach takes them to every corner of the world. Their signature chilled electronic/organic sound has been border-hopping ever since the London-based band emerged in 1996 with their debut album ‘Who Can You Trust?’ pioneering the sound of Trip Hop and going Global in 1998 with their definitive album ‘Big Calm’ which saw the band featured on the cover of The Times & their unassuming singer Skye Edwards become a female icon as her luxurious vocals graced the stereos of every home, club and car in the UK and beyond.
Their current album ‘Blackest Blue’ is the band’s 10th studio album, and delves into the soul of their genre-mashing musical heritage. “Blackest Blue is about finding a way through the darkest of times and emerging the other side changed but intact”.
Joining the line-up are award winning Drum N Bass act Dr Meaker & contemporary brass beats band Tuba Libres with DJ sets to be announced.
