Groove Armada & Nick Littlemore Team Up On New Single ‘Get Out on The Dancefloor’

With three UK Top 10 hits, three Grammy nominations and a succession of hits such as ‘Superstylin’’, ‘Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control)’, ‘I See You Baby’ and ‘At The River’, Groove Armada are one of the most influential forces in dance music.

Now the duo (Tom Findlay and Andy Cato) share their brand new single ‘Get Out On The Dancefloor’. The track previews their long-awaited new album which will follow later this year – their first studio set since 2010’s landmark ‘Black Light’.

‘Get Out On The Dancefloor’ features key ‘Black Light’ collaborator Nick Littlemore (Empire Of The Sun, Pnau). His stream-of-consciousness vocals merge with Groove Armada’s slick grooves to feel like a motorik twist on Talking Heads. The duo had accumulated hundreds of extracts of Littlemore’s vocals and painstakingly edited them together into something fresh and vibrant.

Cato recalls, “As I went through the recordings of Nick, I realized there were lots of cool phrases and great deliveries we could use. It took a very long time to find the right order for them, but once we had that line ‘Get out on the dancefloor’, it felt hooky and vibey. Slotting the music underneath was the easy bit!”

Although Groove Armada has been active in recent years with DJ sets, select shows, and the ‘Twenty One Years’ compilation, the prospect of a new album appeared to be unlikely. That all changed when the duo stepped out in front of 40,000 people at the Boomtown Festival and was overwhelmed by the reaction from long-term fans and newcomers alike.

Further encouraged by music fans’ diversifying interests and by the increasingly eclectic nature of dance music, Groove Armada planned to finish some material that remained from the ‘Black Light’ sessions. But as they spent time in the studio together, that idea evolved and mutated into something new. The result is a collection of new songs that proves that Groove Armada’s flair for merging electro elements with the infectious energy of a live band remains as strong as ever.

The recording process behind the new material was the antithesis to the grueling schedule that Groove Armada committed to when making ‘Black Light’. With Cato living in France, where he works on his sustainable and progressive farming business, the two members would often work alone or with other collaborators before reuniting in London (in Findlay’s home studio, or Miloco Studios) for a few days of intense sessions.

“When we’re in the studio, we go about it in a super intense way, but it’s a laugh,” says Cato. “It’s like all of the rest of the world shuts down and the two of us make our ideas become reality. It’s just fun, and it always has been. The fundamental thing is that we like spending time together and making music.”

Findlay adds, “It’s lovely to get to a place where we’ve made another record. That feels like a huge achievement and makes you reflect on everything we’ve done. It’s melancholic; there’s sadness but there’s joy too.”

    • Tommy Trash, Go Freek and Lucy Lucy Release New Collab ‘Darkness Into Light’ darkness-into-light-tommy-trash-go-freek-lucy-lucy

      Three favourites of the Australian music scene, Tommy Trash, Go Freek and Lucy Lucy unite to bring you the euphoric dance weapon ‘Darkness Into Light’, out now via Club Sweat. Born out of the kind of ecstatic passion you only experience in the heavy fog and flickering strobes of a packed dance floor, this triple threat treats us to a fiery heater set to be a mainstay in pumping clubs and festivals alike. A powerful bass line groove and ascending synth stabs build intoxicating tension, before the husky and nuanced vocals of Lucy Lucy command the room, increasinging in intensity and leading to the ultimate release. The drop hits, bodies roll, and this electric trio remind you of what it’s like to fall in love on the dance floor. Who better to tell the story of this epic collaboration than Lucy Lucy herself, “‘Darkness Into Light’ was the by-product of the first debaucherous night after lockdown restrictions eased. Friends reuniting over a sticky dancefloor, finally back on our bullshit after too many months apart. Early in the evening Tommy, Caleb and I had arranged to do a session the next day – a few hours passed and we were definitely still out past our curfew. Caleb and I decide it’s a good time to have a club pash because maybe we were both really excited? We almost out of awkwardness didn’t do the session but we did and we now have this delicious song baby to show for it. Sealed with a kiss. Literally.” Go Freek confirms, “Writing ‘Darkness Into Light’ was about capturing the euphoria and ecstasy you would feel dancing the night away at a club pashing someone who you are falling in love with but only just met (which kinda went on the night before).” One of Australia’s most in-demand dance music exports over the past decade, GRAMMY nominated artist Tommy Trash returned to the scene in 2020 after a 2 year hiatus. Since then it has been full steam ahead for one of Australia’s most exciting electronic acts, with releases such as ‘Lil Bit’ with Peking Duk, the inaugural release on hau5trap with ‘hiiigh’, and ‘Emergency’ with Yolanda Be Cool.

Time and time again Tommy Trash has proven his production and DJ talents are not bound to any genre or era, as he has electrified across festivals such as Tomorrowland, EDC, Ultra Music Festival, and more recently on his own headline ‘Jaguwawa’ across North America. Go Freek has become a leading force in the club scene locally and internationally, since breaking out with his ARIA Gold certified single ‘Define’, a collaboration with ARIA awarded dance producer Dom Dolla which has gone on to score over 50 million streams across platforms.

    • Golden Features Returns With News Single ‘Touch’ golden-features-touch-2022-oz-edm

      The wait is over! Acclaimed Australian electronic producer Golden Features today makes his highly anticipated return with his rousing new single “Touch” featuring Rromarin. Golden Features has turned out to be an apt name for the artist born Tom Stell, a nod to the gold mask he wears while performing. “Touch” marks the first taste of new music from Stell’s Golden Features, after a literal golden run since bursting onto the scene in 2014. Since his 2018 debut album SECT and the launch of 2020’s collaborative project BRONSON (with ODESZA), Stell felt creatively spent and needed time to recoup. Instead of opting for the traditional R&R approach, Stell emersed himself deep into clubbing mecca of the world, Berlin. There, he lost himself in the city’s renowned techno bunkers and hedonistic clubs, dancing with strangers, stripped of phones and returning to the apartment in the early hours to hunt for the tracks he’d heard the night before. Four nights a week spent raving only came to an end when COVID closed the clubs down. But Stell returned to Australia revitalised and most importantly, inspired. “Touch” encapsulates everything Stell took away from his invigorating stint in Berlin. A track that’s both moody and light, layered with pulsating rhythm, hypnotic beats and the duelling deep and wispy vocals of Rromarin. “Touch was born from that synth riff. I fought it for so long, feeling it was too happy and upbeat. After giving it some space I reharmonized everything under the riff and it instantly made me feel something. Claire (Rromarin) had actually recorded these vocals for another song on the record, but the lyrics just felt right for Touch” says Stell on the new single. “To me it encapsulates that feeling after the rave… At the kick-on laying with your head in somebody’s lap, smoking a cigarette while they play with your hair.” Now with two platinum and six gold ARIA certifications for his tracks, 275+ million global streams, an acclaimed and beloved debut album in 2018’s SECT (#1 ARIA Dance Albums Chart, #1 iTunes, Triple J’s Feature Album), selling out two shows in 4 hours at the Sydney opera House, headline slots at major festivals both at home and abroad as well as forming the BRONSON project and releasing their self-titled album with stadium-conquering US electronic duo ODESZA under his belt, Golden Features has cemented himself as Australian electronic music royalty, returning now as an artist at the top of their game. Stay tuned for more to come from Golden Features, in the meantime listen to the new single “Touch” below!

The result is a pulsating, electric record driven by real emotion and life experience.”  “’Good Light’ is about our dedication to our art and our audience. The music video follows the progression of fire, from its ignition into an intense flame. Through years of being in conversation and growing with our audience, we gradually become our truest form as individuals and learn more about who we all are as a people. To us, the fire signifies that reciprocal thing that we’ve created together which continues to grow. The video was shot on 16mm film over the course of a manic weekend in lutruwita / Tasmania. Directed by Jacob Collings, with cinematography by Ursula Woods, assisted by Robert Agostino, we shot a combination of studio and on-location footage, combining the real and surreal.” Sumner are the third signing to Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes’ Lab78 label with Nick Littlemore first coming across Jack and Chloe at a festival in Tasmania. “Pete and I came across this band while on tour in regional Tasmania. We shared a stage together at the Forth pub on a sweet breezy day a few years back. We were struck by their fierce intensity. Chloe commanded the stage conjuring notes of Chrissie Hynde, Iggy Pop and Karen Finley. Jack the uber-cool, multi-instrumental wonder dazzling on any synth/bass or guitar he picks up and plays.”  Sumner’s debut release on Lab78, ‘Stranded’, was a breakthrough moment for the duo, hitting the top 30 on Shazam nationally, top 5 on the Spotify Viral chart, receiving a full addition to triple j and amassing two million streams. Following on from their second release ‘South’, ‘Good Light’ is the latest piece of the puzzle in the Sumner story and will be available on Lab78 from July 1st.
