[GRAN 015] Groovedown - Edits To Remember


Los Grandes is gladly presenting the second release from the greek producer Groovedown a.k.a. Alex Kokkis. This EP is truly the essence of Groovedown; four re-edits between 96 and 110 bpm's full of groove, tastefully picked and reinterpreted. These four cuts (mostly Moodymann and LTJ - Xperience influeced in terms of production) drive us from the mellowness of Nixon, to the western aroma of Walk to Mississippi, passing througn the deepness of Midnight or the heavy sounds and passional vocals of Baby (I Love Touging You). 
Groovedown is a communication weapon to keep the old roots alive. Proof of that are not only Edits To Remember but his previous release (Superbreak Presents Groovedown), his appearances on This Is Superbreak, Black Lace Vol 3 and Black Lace Vol 4, and all the tracks featuring on his soundcloud.
The splendid cover has been designed by Eduardo Del Pozo a.k.a Light Spectrum based in Barcelona, designer and worldwide renowned dj due to his brilliant monthly mixes. Among his latest works you can find the exquisite design for Ilya Santana 'A Western Tale'.

Juno Download review: "Los Grandes has enjoyed an impressive 2012, releasing a mix of lovingly crafted edits, seductive slo-mo disco originals and starlight disco/house fusion. Here, they round off the year with a selection of slinky reworks from previously unknown scalpel jockey Groovedown. The EP begins with "Nixon", a sweet, summery combination of cut glass strings, loose grooves and soft focus jazz guitar solos. "Walk To Mississippi" injects a touch of Cajun-spiced delta blues into proceedings, before "Baby (I Love Touching You)" slowly builds into a hustling disco-funk beast. Best of all, though, is closer "Midnight", a moonlit stroll through filter disco territory with only a large bag of MDMA powder for company."
Purchase it exclusively on Juno Download. Released on December 20, 2012.
