And let’s hope the world will becomes a better place in 2024!!

I believe in our ability to make this year extraordinary, and I’m here to support our great Electronic music every step of the way in the musical sense of things.
May the good times and treasures of the present become the golden memories of tomorrow for you and your lovely family, just as our childhood memories of holidays past are such happy recollections now. Wishing you lots of love, health, joy, and happiness.

Happy New Year!

In 2024 every first week of the month we will look back at Groove releases and musicians from years ago. More then 30 years of music that should not be forgotten.

So here is the first look back on so much great music the musicians made and released through Groove. Enjoy the year and the great music.


A look back at Hello 2024.

Well Rob and me had a great time at the Bochum Planetarium during our almost 2 hour concert in Essen Germany. A great crowd, great visuals by Klaus-Dieter Unger on the dome and the musical pleasure of making music with Rob Papen on the stage. Thanks for all who came to watch and listen to the music. You make it all so special. Also a great thanks to Klaus Sommerfeld, keep that flame burning!!
