Do you have the groove in you? I hope so, for your sake. But if not then we want to help you find it. Expect future posts to cover a wide range of music both old and new and from genres including House, Soul, Funk, Disco, Techno, Electronic, Hip-Hop, Pop, Jazz and beyond.

I'll start off by posting the track that inspired the name for the blog. Harvey Mason's Groovin' You was released in 1979 on the Arista label. It was sampled heavily by Gusto for his 1995 house anthem 'Disco's Revenge'. My copy boasts that it was remastered by disco legend Tom Moulton! There was a 2001 remix by Joeski, who added some heavy drums and latin percussion to the groove as well as introducing a breakdown to the track. A nice alternative to the bouncey original.
