Bäs Noir / Metro / N.Y. House’n Authority / Aphrodisiac 'Nu Groove Records Classics Volume 2' 2LP
Founded in 1988, the Nu Groove catalogue is a true reflection of New York’s house sound. Started by Frank and Karen Mendez as an outlet for some of Rheji and Ronald Burrell’s more experimental musical ventures, the label would go on to help launch the careers of a number of local talents including Joey Beltram and Kenny Dope, but the Burrell brothers were by far the most prolific. Over thirty years later, Luke Solomon has re-assembled the catalogue and the spirit of this legendary New York label, with this 2 x 12” package celebrating some essentials from its catalogue. The second volume features cuts from Bäs Noir, Emjay, Tech Trax Inc and Metro, this collection of late 80’s and early 90’s gems is a record box essential and blissful re-introduction to the Nu Groove sound.
