Groove Armada – Edge Hill

Album: Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub) Groove Armada are a big beat group/dj duo from England, composed of two members, Yorkshireman Andy Cato (real name Andrew Cocup)[1] and Tom Findlay, hailing from Cambridge. They are now primarily based in London, and continue to produce and record music as well as hosting semi-regular club nights in London and an annual London festival under the Lovebox banner. The group has collaborated with a diverse array of artists including Neneh Cherry, DJ Gram’Ma Funk, Sophie Barker, Nappy Roots, Fudge Dog, Sunshine Anderson, Mutya Buena and Richie Havens. Tom Findlay has described working with Prince as his dream collaboration, although there are no plans for such at the moment.[2] Groove Armada is probably best known to the music listening public for producing music that have featured in numerous media including advertising campaigns, movies and computer games. Groove Armada first formed in the mid-1990s after they had been introduced by Cato’s girlfriend and soon started their own club, also called Groove Armada, after a 70’s discotheque.[3] By 1997 they had released a few singles including “4 Tune Cookie” and the song that first brought them minor fame, “At The River”, which sampled “Old Cape Cod” by Patti Page. The song has gone on to be one of Groove Armada’s most well-known tracks and has since been found on numerous chill out compilations. Their first album Northern Star was released in 1998, and was followed by their second album
