House may have started in Chicago, but London knows more than a thing or two about rockin' a steady groove. So, too, do Tom Findlay and Andy Cato, and you can trust them, because they put "Groove" in their name.
Since 1995, Groove Armada has built a reputation as one of the best. Whether it be a live show or a heart-pumping DJ set, magic happens every time this pair touches stage. The duo then perfected the art of capturing the sweaty, sexy goodness of a dark dance floor into its studio recordings.

We can actually smell the club in latest single "House With Me." We close our eyes and see the '90s-era fluffy backpacks jumping on jerking shoulders as the outside world softly slips away. Maybe that's partially to do with the funkadelic voice work of Chicago ghetto house legend Parris Mitchell.
"We are delighted to feature the vocals of Parris Mitchell on our new track 'House With Me' on Snatch!" Groove Armada's Findlay says in an emailed statement. "Dance Mania and Parris Mitchell are pioneers of house music, and we're honoured to feature him on this record. Hopefully this is just the start."
It's Groove Armada's first release on Riva Starr's Snatch! Records, scheduled for release Friday, but you can get a first listen now, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
