Following on from their Little Black Book album for Moda Black, Groove Armada have just announced an original new production, ‘Call Me’.
Whilst the dub version was included on the album, this release is reworked into 10 minutes of determinedly feel-good and playful electronica. Combining a funk-tinged bassline, anthemic piano chords and a rich male vocal, this is a distinctly Groove Armada creation.
Earlier this summer Tom and Andy released their installment of Moda Black’s Little Black Book series. Part album, mix and remix project their Little Black Book touched on their twenty year career touching on late 80s inspiration, long summers in Ibiza and global live tours. The mix on CD1 is made up of 100% GA originals and remixes. A 77 minute journey that includes 7 exclusives, a Tony Allen jam, Candi Staton, a Balearic remake of a GA classic and their rework of Arthur Baker anthem, Rockers Revenge
The second disc then sees 12 excellent producers redefine classic Groove Armada records, resulting in some spectacular new versions of tracks like ‘Love Sweet Sound’, ‘Superstylin’, ‘Chicago and ‘I See You Baby’ from the likes of Kolsch, andhim, Huxley, Jaymo & Andy George, Joris Voorn, PillowTalk, Emperor Machine, Marco Faraone, Chaim, Hauswerks, Walker & Royce and wAFF.
