2020 brought out the creative juices of Producers Reelsoul & Groove Junkies (aka Groove N' Soul) who had stellar years individually and collectively. When the dust finally settled they landed on Traxsource's Top 100 Soulful House Artists of the Year Chart and earned the #3 & #14 spots respectively. Early in the year they teamed up with vocalist and House newcomer Tertulien Thomas on his MoHo debut "You Can't Hide." Their slammin' cover of David Joseph's 1983 underground soul / funk hit shot to #1 on Traxsource's Soulful House chart and clocked in at #35 on their year ending Top 200 Soulful House songs.

This time around the trio take on the Keni Burke classic "Keep Rising To The Top," a song that's filled with hope and a much needed message of self-determination for the New Year. Originally released in 1982 on RCA, Keni's uplifting and infectious song inspired generations of producers to repurpose Burke's beautiful instrumentation and vocals for decades to come. Its iconic bass-line & dreamy opening synth sounds have been sampled and used in songs by LL Cool J, Mary J. Blige, Mary Jane Girls, Redman, Dilla & Pete Rock to name a few. Re-imagining a downtempo groover and turning it into a 121BPM House jam is never an easy task, but the fellas pull it off with amazing results and ultimately put their own unique stamp on it. Tim Bailey's incredible bass coupled with Groove Junkies sturdy drum programming & deft arrangement establish the foundation for Reelsoul's luscious keys and Tertulien's heartfelt vocal. The fellas incorporation and interpretation of the Kanye West Choir's Sunday Service verse & "All Night Long" hook on the vamp is the cherry on top! Tertulien's call and response interaction with singers Nichelle Monroe, Lisa Sadowski, Tonya Sharae Davis & Solara (who provide impeccable background vocals) is pure hands in the air magic!
