Over Groove Armada
London's rising chill-out supastars Tom Findlay and Andy Cato are equipped with a "beats 'n' brass" sound that tones down the cheekiness of Tummy Touch label owner and friend Tim "Love" Lee. Revealing a jazz-tinted collection of disco, funk and house nuances that glitter like the contents of a treasure chest, Groove Armada prove that the gritty can shine. Solidly fragmented mellowness erupts in slow motion on arrangements decorated with delectable melodic musings from trombones, flutes, trumpets, pianos and synths. Choice vocal samples add to the sweet sensuality of mixes that send a warm rush through your body like a smile from a visually-appealing stranger. Subtly uplifting, this duo's introspectively groovy style pleads with the summer season to stay a bit longer.
