4Ever Songs: Dee-Lite ‘Groove is in the Heart’

30 years ago, a multicultural trio who found delights on New York City dancefloors released a single that merged funk, pop, and disco in a hip-hop collage style. ‘Groove is in the Heart’ is a colourful and infectious song that’s become an enduring classic

The band’s origins were similarly cosmopolitan. Deee-Lite were both very New York, their music slotting into the city’s decadent club scene, and globally disparate — DJ Dmitry was from Ukraine, Towa Tei from Tokyo, and Lady Miss Kier from the US — anticipating the explosion in global pop in the late 2010s.

The muses of La Musa: Ellyn Woods

Hit of The Week: Phoenix ‘Alpha Zulu’

Phoenix is offering fans a taste of the group’s forthcoming music with the release of single “Alpha Zulu.” It’s the newest music from the visionary pop group since the 2020 release of “Identical,” featured in the Sofia Coppola film On the Rocks.

The French outfit is currently in the studio working on a full-length follow up to 2017’s Te Amo. (It’s unknown whether “Alpha Zulu” was recorded during these album sessions.)

Music by Bergman: Tim Burgess

Tim Burgess inherited Mick Jagger’s rock & roll swagger and big lips before Oasis’ Liam Gallagher became famous for them. When Burgess debuted with his group The Charlatans in the late ‘80s, he looked and sounded almost interchangeable with many of the Manchester, England artists at the time but by embracing other musical styles and moving forward, he has actually outlived his contemporaries. 

The Charlatans released their 12th album, Modern Nature, in 2015 and Burgess returned to his solo career, releasing a mix album called Tim Burgess Presents

Set for release on 23rd September via Bella Union, Tim Burgess has announced his new album ‘Typical Music’.
