Honestly, I am not even sure where to begin when it comes to the Modern Groove Assembly. Should I start back more than 10 years ago at the Paper Heart Gallery in downtown Phoenix, when some white dude that looked like he was from NY comes rolling in wearing a Kangol, oversized sweater and glasses with a hand full of 12" records, or Should I start back (not as far back) at a dope show I was invited to DJ at with Modern Groove Assembly Sy Smith and Bugz in the Attic? Or! Maybe I should fast forward just a few more years and start with the gig I was asked to DJ at with Mark de clive lowe in a bar with Lady Alma. Are we talking about Phoenix? as in Arizona? I believe so, and how the hell was this possible? This guy named simply STEVE aka Modern Groove Assembly.
See, Steve had a vision long before Phoenix even knew what nujazz, jazz or jazztronica was. So without all the accolades this mans deserves for his push for great music, we'll just start with Today. Yes, almost 2 decades later, Today, this man has recreated a classic, remixed, revised and reimagined what FourFiveSeconds could sound like today. And what a treat it is. Storming up charts worldwide, Modern Groove Assembly presents FourFiveSeconds Future Soul Rework Featuring Teri Tobin and Rasar Amani. Mastered by Chris Athens Masters.
