An inspirational bass waving and flowing in Groove Squared makes it what it was originally designed for, an electronic live band. It comes back with a brand new apperance, a fashionable modern dancefloor sound, after years spent in clubs raving the scene.
Groove Squared history is peculiar, specific and moisturizing, like a pattern of old movies in which music, emotion and images are beautifully fused into a complex texture.
