General Infos

“Bass music arguably wouldn’t be what it is right now without Addison Groove.” (Resident Advisor / March 2012)

Boomkat wrote about Addison Groove’s debut album “Transistor Rhythm” from March 2012: “Addison Groove, drawing on juke, electro, dubstep, ghetto-house and jeep-rocking hip-hop variants to create super-heavy bass music, leaves you with no alternative but to dance and/or bite your lower lip raw.”

The dancing and lip biting parts still count for his follow up “James Grieve”, but the influences and music genres have slightly changed. There’s a strong jungle influence present from beginning to end. “James Grieve” is also less raw and jackin’ than the predecessor and seamlessly combines spacious, laid back and more rollin’ tracks with a bunch of straight forward club bangers.

While “Transistor Rhythm” was definitely Chicago inspired, “James Grieve” is pure Bristol through-and-through.

File under: Junglish-footwork flux by one of UK bass music’s figureheads. Excellent sophomore album including collaborations with DJ Die, Sam Binga, MC DRS and Josefina.
