Hot Creations favourite Robert James makes his debut on VIVa with three original tracks and heavyweights Groove Armada are onboard to deliver ‘Terrace’ and ‘Dub’ remixes.
‘Seagate’ captures the energy of the sunshine with licking hi-hats, rolling grooves and unforgettable vocals. The feel-good ‘House Invader’ rides a swinging bassline and sharp kick, while Groove Armada’s ‘Terrace Mix’ strips solid percussion into a dramatic synth affair, and a digital ‘Dub Mix’ is also on the agenda. On his third original production, Robert James delivers more sonic bassline action with ‘Feel That Way’.
First surfacing amidst a new wave of talent on Lee Foss and Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations, Robert James has gone on to DJ at hot-spots all over the globe as well as release on labels like Culprit, Saved, Silver Network and the legendary Strictly Rhythm. He also holds a highly honoured residency at Jamie Jones’ Paradise at DC10.
Formed in the mid 1990s, diverse duo Groove Armada has had numerous chart successes. Recently they held a residency on BBC 6 Music’s 6 Mix and this summer sees a new album / remix album dropping on Moda Black.
