Show

Initially designed as a show where various DJs were expressing their opinions, the success of Hour of Groove determined us to increase its impact and musical horizon that we consider to be unlimited or infinite. Thus, the most of the radio shows became available on audio format for those not having the opportunity to listen to them "live". More about Groove Hour Show

Groove Hour 201 mixed by Elis

The 201 edition of Groove Hour, brings you one of the finest selections in deep house and chicago house producers. Mixed by Elis, the twisted, chunky and uplifting sound of Chicago, is presented in one hour of pure selection.

02. For his Freerange debut, Brett set the freakometer dial to 11 and pushed the Shake Yo Booty Now button so hard it broke off. Cuckoo is stripped back, heads down, Chicago house at it's very best. The groove starts, the bass line wobbles, the sample of Brett's mum will make you chuckle, then all too soon it's over. So Re-ee-ee-ee-wind! Very cheeky this one, and gets a large reaction on the dancefloor.

05. The Belgian house duo Swirl People (Dimitri Dewever & Raoul Belmans) is back with a follow up to their highly acclaimed albums 'Special Combo' (Aroma, 2004) and 'Hi Mom Lets Dance' (2002). Their new album 'Swirl It Up' was definitely worth the wait as critics already named it undoubtedly their best album to date, because of it bringing a fresh breath into house music.
For those not familiar yet with Swirl People, they were formed almost 10 years ago and subsequently became one of Belgium's foremost deep and funky house projects, with tons of records under their belt for labels such as Seasons, Amenti, Oomph, Music For Freaks and Black Cherry under different monikers (Swirl Peepz, Cozy Creatures, Different Noodles and Tiger Sprouts), not to mention all the remix projects they've been involved with.
Dimitri Dewever aka Deviate has been producing since a very young age, resulting into an impressive discography with hundreds of releases and co-productions on several labels. The globetrotter half of Swirl People is Raoul Belmans who used to be a resident at Belgium's legendary deep house club Food for 9 years and is currently worldwide renowned for his exquisite deejay sets. He literally tours about 5 months a year which makes him by far the most booked Belgian deejay in the world. He's a regular in places like Australia, New Zeeland, Japan, South Africa and the US not to mention all the European countries he played. In between all this travel action he's also running the infamous Aroma imprint and hosts a weekly show on Belgian national radio Studio Brussel called Switch: house.
This brings us neatly to the sweet smell of 'Swirl It Up', taking off with the first single "When I Think Of You" featuring the world famous 'jack-star' DJ Heather on vocals. Derrick Carter also remixed this tune but it was the original version that got playlisted for about 3 months on Belgian national radio stations Studio Brussel and FM Brussel, getting the sing-along treatment on many dance floors. Newcomer in the scene is Parisian Blanche Neige doing the vocals on the swingy "You're A Star", followed up by the Latin infused "To The Restaurant", which will teach you a few handy words of Spanish when you go out for dinner! Killer bass line track "Like To Boogie" is smoothly followed by "Ride The Pony" or the 'horse track' as some people already call this. "Play Along" already saw the light on vinyl 2 years ago but couldn't be left out and "The Greatest Time" is a big club favourite of many deejays and never disappoints on the floor, people just go nuts when they hear this! Than we have the 2nd single "(I'll Be A) Freak For You" with the sweet vocals of Vancouver's own Ingrid Hakanson, followed up by another eighties influenced funky stomper and album title track "Swirl It Up". Jazzy bass heavy "Hot 'N' Stuffy" interludes the second Ingrid Hakanson vocal track called "Luscious" which can be best described as deep house anno 2007. And lastly Swirl People 1997 hit "Wotcha Gonna Do" got hip-house-fied by Belgian's most famous selecta TLP aka Troubleman (Culture Club resident), which concludes Swirl People's third and most danceable album to date!

The end of the mix is pure creation that cannot be reedit, made by other producers or heard in other places. That`s why because Osunlade and Trentemoeller are unique producers with unique sound that cannot be counterfeit. Just original sound, and this is all because their wide culture in knowing the frequencies, the sounds of nature.
