GROOVE JUNKIES

Class, consistency, forward thinking, and an unbridled passion for quality house music define the essence of MoreHouse Records co-founder Evan Landes (pka Groove Junkies, Nimble Digits, Cranky Owls, Left Hand Shake). Evan's strategy of releasing an eclectic array of intoxicating dance grooves which are not bound by any gimmicky trends and memorable songs that stand the test of time, has paid off since MoHo's doors first opened in 2002. A brilliant collective of singers, musicians, writers & producers, who are featured throughout Groove Junkies impressive catalog have helped define the "MoHo Sound". Within the genre of House music, each unique release can run the gamut stylistically - ranging from organic soul, funk, afro, latin, jazz and gospel drenched songs, to peak hour, deep, tribal, and electronic influenced tracks.

The labels discography and his personal achievements put him in an elite class amongst his peers. In addition to co-owning the label with wife and recording artist Solara since 2002, he's helped coordinate and produce over 65 successful releases on the MoreHouse imprint, including numerous chart topping hits. Evan's latest effort "Perception," has recently garnered Top 10 status on Traxsource's Top 100 Afro House chart. His versatility was on display this during the summer of 2016 as he and long time collaborator Scott K. scored a Top 5 with their Tech House beast "AfrikAcid" on Anane Vega's Nulu Electronic. 2015 was yet another banner year for Evan. It yielded various No. 1, Top 5 & Top 10 Original Productions, Covers and Remixes, as well as the highly coveted ‘Song of the Year’ award at the inaugural Los Angeles House Music Awards for his song “SUNSHINE” - co-written with Solara. Other highlights from 2015 include his stirring Deep House treatment of Spiritchaser’s iconic track “CONCH” on UK‘s highly regarded Guess Records. His remix soared to the #1 slot on Traxsource and remained there for 3 weeks. His tasteful Nu Disco tinged cover of the iconic Chris Isaak song “Wicked Game” on the red hot Greek imprint Erase Records, shot to the #2 position on another download site and remained in the Top 5 for a staggering 3 months. Evan’s first collaboration with famed producer Michele Chiavarini (Joey Negro’s longtime keyboardist / arranger) and House music Diva Carolyn Harding spawned a timeless original titled “PLAY,” which ultimately secured the #3 spot on Traxsource.com’s Top 100 Soulful House chart. Throughout the years Evan's original productions and remixes have amassed an impressive 25 Top 10 positions on Traxsource’s Top 100 download charts, a Top 5 and Top 20 on another download site, as well as the no. 1, 2 & 5 slots on the European based DJ Mag Hype Chart and a couple of Top 5 positions in Billboard’s Top 100 Dance chart. In October 2010 his critically acclaimed debut artist album “In The Zone” shot up to the #1 position on the Top 100 Album Downloads chart on Traxsource within 4 days of its release and received ‘Album of the Year & Month’ kudos from numerous industry publications.

His body of work has garnered DJ support from industry legends such as the late great Frankie Knuckles, Louie Vega, David Morales, Roger Sanchez, Ben Watt, Joey Negro and Tony Humphries to name a few.

He's also collaborated on highly charted dance floor anthems for the likes of Om Records and Ben Watt's Buzzin' Fly and has contributed to the output of iconic labels such as Island/Def Jam, A&M, Warner Bros., J Records, Interscope, Ultra, Defected, Definity, Soulfuric, Duffnote, Mn2S, and Quantize Recordings.

Nominations for 'Breakthrough Producer' at London's House Music Awards in 2005, and 'Breakthrough DJ' at the Ibiza DJ Awards in 2006 found Groove Junkies in company with nominees such as Dennis Ferrer, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso & Jamie Lewis and offered well deserved recognition of Evan's exceptional ability.
