A well respected musician and producer in his native Belgium, Francis Groove is an artist who is now more than ready to make a splash on a wider stage. His new single – a ‘Groove @ Night remix’ of his track ‘Alright (Take My Hand) – features Tony G on vocal and arrives ready to catapult him into the club scene as a ready made star.
Of course, it’s not as simple as that, but when a song comes along as well produced and ready to go as this, perhaps it should be. The track opens quietly with anachronistic acoustic guitar, before quickly building into thumping pop. It would be easy to slot into club and radio playlists alike, and well worth owning in any pop fan’s collection – grab it from iTunes now.
The track above, ‘North Sea Fret’, is a fantastic introduction to the sounds and styles of highly unusual duo MetaQuorum. A pair of veteran musicians with a ‘sense of mischief’, their new album ‘Midnight Sun’ is out now.
Usually instrumental, their music blasts down barriers between genres and styles, moulding plentiful ideas into their sprawling tracks. The musicianship and skill in constructing these compositions must be huge, and their style certainly makes for an intriguing alternative to the pop music we’re spoon-fed on the radio.
