Every now and then a label comes along and encapsulates everything it means to be a symbol of great music. A distinct sound, a roster brimming with talent and an abundance of positive energy: these are some of the defining qualities which attribute to a rise in their prestige.
De La Groove Spotlight
This is no truer than with the forward-thinking Parisian imprint De La Groove.
Fast approaching four years since the label’s first release, French beatmaker and frontman Le Hutin is still successfully hand-picking the finest talent to be showcased, such as Knuckle G, Hotmood, Black Loops, Art Of Tones, Vanderkraft and more. With every release, the label’s sought-after sound continues to radiate the core essence of what it means to be musically diverse. Taking influence from a whole host of styles, from jazz and funk to deep or jackin’, De La Grove are leaders of identifying that next big thing, each and every time.
Most recently Equilibrium has been the focus, a six-track album that embodies all things deep and soulful. Legend Don Carlos was welcomed with opened arms, alongside modern producers Sean McCabe, Reelsoul, XXXY, and of course, you’ll find a healthy portion of De La Groove regulars: Art Of Tones, Davide Fiorese and Peppe Citarella.
Today is all about celebrating the instantly recognizable sound and style they’ve developed in such a short space of time. So, take a minute, delve deep into all things De La Groove and explore what it means to be a part of the movement.
