4 to the Floor presents Nu GrooveOriginally started in 1988 by Frank and Karen Mendez as an outlet for some of Rheji and Ronald Burrell's more experimental musical adventures, Nu Groove was fast becoming the hippest house music label. The label defied to be synonymous to a certain sound, rather it was very much a reflection of New York's verily multifarious house music sound. The latest installment in the prestigious "4 to the Floor" series(as usual compiled by Luke Solomon) showcases the early releases from the label, opening a time capsule to the underground sound of downtown New York between 1988-1991. Remastered and sounding better than ever, the compilation still retains its glorious original analogue quality, featuring some of the labels most memorable releases, including the vocal classics "My love is magic" and "I'm glad you came to me" by the much-loved New Jersey vocal group Bas Noir which are among our favorites from the label.
