Nu Groove was one of the pioneering House Music labels out of NY, originally active between 1988 and 1992, it’s mark on the scene was to be felt for years to come. Originally set up by Karen and Frank Mendez as a vehicle for the Burrell twins, Rhano and Rheji, who were signed to Virgin at the time under the name Burrell, Nu Groove allowed them to explore the more underground and avant-garde nature of their musical minds. Nu Groove also became an outlet for many up and coming producers, including Kenny Dope, Bobby Konders, DJ Smash, Frankie Bones & Lennie Dee, Joey Negro and Joey Beltram to name but a few, they covered a variety of styles, from deep, jazzy and minimal house, through to soulful vocals, bumping grooves and jacking sample tracks, all a reflection of New York’s house sound of the time. These releases fuelled the explosive dance scene of the late 80s and early 90s, warehouse rave culture and UK pirate radio all relied heavily on Nu Grooves steady output of underground grooves to inspire a generation of dance music lovers, dancers, DJ’s and producers. Almost 30 years on, the spirit of this seminal New York label lives on.

Introduced to Rheji Burrell from an as yet unknown Roland Clark, Roqui went on to sing multiple soulful, R&B infused songs for Burrell and Nu Groove Records. Straddling the New York Club House sound, along with the popular New Jack Swing groove of the time, Roqui sits alongside Janet Jackson in style and delivery. This package also includes a killer Brixton Bass remix from the UK’s Blacksmith production team making ‘Lover’ one for the collection.
