Release Date: May 12th, 2017
In house music circles, the name Jazz-N-Groove is spoken in reverential tones. Brian Tappert & Marc Pomeroy’s involvement in music stretches back to the 1980s, which is one of many reasons why they simply had to join the list of House Masters legends. Marc Pomeroy’s ‘Can’t Get Enough’ is naturally included, along with Brian & Marc’s first co-production Urban Blues Project ‘Deliver Me’ – a firm favourite of Frankie Knuckles – and such bona fide house classics as Cleptomaniacs ‘All I Do’ and Moné ‘We Can Make It’, plus stellar remixes for Loleatta Holloway, Donna Allen, Louie Vega and Shakedown. With tracks presented in full-length, unmixed format, ‘Defected presents House Masters - Jazz-N-Groove’ is an essential addition to the collections of DJs and fans of soulful house music alike.
Alongside being well-respected producers in their own right, the two founded iconic label Soulfuric Recordings, which eventually included sub-labels Soulfuric Deep and Soulfuric Trax. Soulfuric was and is one of the most important labels in the history of this genre we love, garnering a cult following and releasing classics from Axwell, John ‘Julius’ Knight, Shawn Christopher, Hardsoul, Melba Moore and Copyright. As such, we are extremely proud to be re-presenting selected highlights from across all three labels, many for the first time on digital. Keep an eye out for new Soulfuric releases coming in the future... 👀
As well as an array of music, we have also worked with Brian and Mark to bring you some hot and exclusive Soulfuric merch, including t-shirts and slipmats, which can be found HERE.
