Superstar UK electronica duo, Groove Armada, comprises Tom Findlay and Andy Cato and was formed in the mid-'90s after being introduced by the latter's girlfriend. The rest they say, is pretty much history as the group went on to become one of the world's biggest dance music sensations, gaining chart hits, a residency at Fabric in London, and headliner performance slots across the world over two decades with its unusual blend of influences, spanning House, Tech-House, Techno, Balearic, Disco and Funk. 2011 saw the duo entertaining audiences globally in fresh new ways with their Red Light audio-visual show (done in conjunction with their "Red Light Trax" EP), one which ran through kinect cameras and generated live visuals from movement behind the DJ decks.

Bass music the way it was designed to be. No genres, no pretense, no expectations, just pure unadulterated subsonic frequencies for you, your body and your mind to get down to. From House, to Hip Hop, Dubstep to Drum & Bass, every side is covered by our Velvet Underground residents Ming and Jeremy Boon.
Dom and Kai from Mount Kimbie met whilst at Southbank University, pushed together in student halls that used to be an old mental asylum. Armed with found sound snips and a siege mentality, the duo set about turning London's ambience into rhythm and its chaos into coherence. Traces of influence remain - the hard-earned spaces of Burial and The Bug vie with the berserk melodrama of Xiu Xiu and Grouper's sad- eyed glow, D'Angelo's pervert soul gets cleansed in the intimacy of Phil Elvrum's Microphones, Angelo Badalamenti's swollen 'Twin Peaks' atmospheres find a cradle in Madlib's lax lope. The band's sound and response to the dubstep movement is very much their own, floating through hip-hop, jazz, techno and ambient, post-rock, UK garage and film scores to startling effect.
