The highly anticipated collaboration with Groove Junkies and
spoken word artist Louis Hale brings together the best of the GJs
smooth production, energetic rhythms, and soulful vibes with the
kinetic imagery, danceable lyrics, and rich voice that have become
After spending many years as a spoken word artist and
performing all over the country, Louis Hale began deepening his
relationship with House music first through dance, then by spinning
rhymes with the DJs and producers that moved his soul. This gifted
poet on the rise has previously lent his talent on projects for
house dons such as Miguel Migs, Deepswing, Justin Michael &
Kemal, Yogi & Husky and Joshua Heath. His contribution on
Josh’s “Copacetic” helped garner “Song of the Year” list
kudos for 2010 on Stompy.com and his collaboration with guitarist
Balage hit Traxsource’s Top 10 download. His tunes have been
remixed by a stellar array of producers including Richard
Earnshaw, Jay J, and Will “Reelsoul” Rodriguez to name a few.
Peggi Blu got her start singing in church at the age of
three. When she was a teenager she moved to New York, where she
established herself as one of the top background singers, singing
with Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Bob Dylan, & others. Since
those early formidable years Peggi has gone on to become the first
winner of worldwide famed Star Search TV Show, star on Broadway,
share the stage and sing with Barbara Streisand and tour the world
many times with her successful one woman show. She’s contributed
her talent to 10 Platinum selling recordings and worked with the
likes of Quincy Jones, David Foster, Barbara Streisand and Bob
Dylan to name a few. Most recently she was exposed to a worldwide
audience with a cameo on American Idol as “The vocal coach from
hell!” Needless to say we are honored to have her on this project.
Additionally, the extremely talented Solara (of MoHo & Om fame)
contributed her inimitable sultry vocals that serve as a perfect
cherry on top.
The desire for this collaboration was conceived many moons ago
and is now ready to be born into a world that needs the power of
love which the Groove Junkies bring to House. Get ready to let your
body walk to “Rhythm Talks”.
Mix Names / Descriptions:
GJs Deep Afro Mix – Louis’ dope spoken word takes
on a different feeling amongst atmospheric pads and verbed out
conga/bongo/talkin’ drum hits and fills. Solara’s homage to Grace
Jones’ Slave To the Rhythm is the icing on top. As the name would
imply, this one’s for the deep ‘headz.
GJs Mo’ Hump Mix – Evan uses some elements from
the OG mix but adds a new drum bed, a sick acid bassline and brings
a little more heat n’ drama. There’s a little mo’ junk in the trunk
on this mix!
GJs Original Mix – Evan delivers a soulful /
jazzy, afro laced backdrop to accompany Louis’ spot on spoken word
and Peggi’s tasty bluesy vocal riffs. Classic GJ’s.
Angell Vittore & RJ Spinher Remix - Big,
bouncy tech rhythms with storyline vocals. Synths that move like
percussion with stabs that keep the track driving and freshly
unique. Our homies from LA killed it! Prepare to shuffle your
feet to this tech house beast that’s talkin’ loud n’ clear!
Christopher Wilde Downtime Remix - Afro
flavored grooves and elements of soulful, smokey jazz surround the
flowing vocal lines and bluesy licks. Engaging, atmospheric
and uniquely CW. This man from So. Africa is def someone to
