Groove Armada

Groove Armada's Tom Findlay and Andy Cato started pulling together ideas in poky little studios more than ten years ago. Since then, their careers have blown up.

Their first production, a limited edition 7" 'At the River' surpassed everyone's expectations in the world of dance and media. Signing to Tummy Touch Records in 1997, Groove Armada's debut album 'Northern Star' was released the same year.

From such instantaneous success it felt like a short hop and dancefloor skip to worldwide fame, via 4 further studio albums, various compilations, remixes and 'Best Of's', becoming one of the best known and most loved dance acts. Marking 10 years since the release of their debut album, 2007 saw the band celebrate their anniversary by releasing compilation album 'GA10 - 10 Year Story'.

Uniquely, Groove Armada have always managed to straddle the worlds of upbeat dance music and mellow chill-out tunes. The former have filled stadiums with crowds bouncing along to the big band sound, while their down tempo work made it on to the thousands of chill-out compilations that saturated the 1990's. By making tunes that soundtrack the party warm up, the party proper and the day-after-the-night-before, they're the ideal companions for a night on the tiles from its beginning to its bitter end.

Groove Armada can't help but create songs that burst out of the studio and spread all over the place. At The River, If Everybody Looked the Same, Superstylin', I See You Baby - these are towering songs of our times. But if you're restlessly inventive, you don't want to be defined by your past, no matter how shiny and brilliant. They continue to be a global force in dance music, having incorporated everything from folk to psychedelic soul to country-rock into their bassy house style.

Today, their songs belong to all the clubbers, gig-goers, Top 40-watchers, festival fans, and the three million people who have ever bought one of their many artist albums or compilations
