Born and raised in Brussels, Belgium, Francis Groove is a true turntablist, DJ and producer, in the traditions of David Morales, Calvin Harris, and Roger Sanchez. Groove started getting into electro music after his first trip to US at the age of 19. He discovered House music through the club scene of NYC, where his favorite spot was the Sound Factory Bar. Returning home he decided to play electronic music and has been around Europe educating the new generation on “good music that lasts forever”.
Putting an importance on the lyrics, Francis Groove’s collaboration with Sandra Bryan, a UK-born lyricist based in the USA, ensures that his songs resonate like real life experiences. Adding the voice to Groove’s soulfully mesmerizing soundscapes is Tony.G, whose vocals make the lyrics melt like butter on toast.
Well “LOVE’s Gonna Find U (LgFu) ft. Tony.G” is plain and simple just another fine production from Francis Groove. He has created yet another masterpiece of electronica in the funky and groove-filled vein of music that is transglobal, far reaching and innovative, yet rooted in traditionally classic styles.
Grooves tastes manage to manipulate sounds alongside of slinky guitar rhythms, soulful vocals, jazzy keyboard inflections and world music overtones that make for nothing short of a delightful mixture. The vibe that Francis Groove delivers bends and weaves amongst the colors, people and places the music creates in your mind.
The echoes of past musical greatness are stirred by this recording. “LOVE’s Gonna Find U (LgFu)” has that lounge lay back and groove sound to it that soothes and satisfies the soul, yet at a flick of the volume switch, this track could accompany you across any given dance-floor across the globe
The utopian qualities of this composition are highlighted by the rich layers of music leaning on top of a deep thumping bassline and a voice that resonates almost endlessly, creating an ambience suited for any feel-good mood, especially loving and romance, which is the principal theme touched on lyrically.
Though “LOVE’s Gonna Find U (LgFu)” may only be a 3 minute song, each subsequent replay reveals new images, textures and sounds that make for an excellent listening experience. Let the music filter through your mind. These filters classify, they arrange, they name what you hear.
They focus on rhythm, on harmony, and on melody. If you set these filters too narrow, you won’t hear music, only the sound of your intellect bouncing like a ball inside your mind. Let the rhythm take you to an exotic land far away to chill on the beach watching a perfect sunset with the one you love.
For anyone looking for something different from the flood of boring electronic tracks on the market, I think Francis Groove has delivered a hidden gem here that will strike the right chord with you. And if you don’t find it, don’t worry, “LOVE’s Gonna Find U (LgFu)” !
