There’s something going on…..

xZ79cc4A_400x400Pioneering UK band, Grupo X, who are celebrating 21 years together, have been back in the studio, creating original, soulful Afro-Latin music. Something Going On is the first release from these sessions, with a new album due out later in the year.

Something Going On maintains Grupo X’s reputation for dancefloor-friendly tunes with a soulful sensibility and a Latin twist. In a stellar lineup, Grupo X vocalist, Lisa Millett, is on magical form, telling the tale of a partner obsessed with Obeah and superstition.

The EP features two contrasting remixes;  a pulsating Northern Soul makeover from talented flautist/saxophonist/producer, Chip Wickham, and Drum & Bass remix  by up-and-coming, Leeds-based producer, Jeano.

Ginger “Back in early 2017, when recording ‘Ghost In The Tanglewood’, with Dave Draper and John Kettle in Wigan, I was lucky enough to meet the students of the Hope School. They made me feel so welcome that I asked them if they’d sing on the song ‘Paying It Forward’. They kindly accepted my request and their happiness is captured on the recording forever. I had no hesitation in wanting to recreate the exact setting of that original meeting for the video, and when asked, they again happily agreed to take part. I’m very honoured that we have now have the experience captured on video.”
