No Knock EP by Groove Armada on Hypercolour

Groove Armada have been around so long that electronic music fans in their 30s must feel like they’ve grown up with them. For fifteen years Tom Findlay and Andy Cato have released house music that’s stormed the heights of the charts and filled the most intimate dancefloors alike. But rather than rest on laurels and simply cash in at the big festivals, they’ve continued to put out tracks that still show their love for the acid house that fired them to make music in the 90s. And while some may see their appearance on Hypercolour as incongruous, the four tracks on the No Knock EP are more than a match for any underground whippersnappers of the new decade.
