Key Selling Points
The Groove Boys Project have been members of the Amsem family for a long time, so their first record for the label comes as no surprise.
Cooked in their beautiful parisian Studio 937, the five tracks off their «Something Special» EP feels like a perfect introduction to those who haven’t had the chance to experience their soulful and passionate live shows. This record will take you on an ecstatic journey from Chicago to Paris, from peak-time classic house to deeper, early-morning cuts, bringing in their friends and collaborators Lucas Piette and Rawai¨ along the trip, culminating in an epic Drum’n’Bass number that should set many dancefloors ablaze.
About the label
The story started 8 years ago, when Gabriel Mester and Marc Antoine Rousseau met in high school, despite being serious students, they quickly realized that they were together sharing a common passion: a love for electronic music, as well as a nai¨ve dream: creating their own independent music label.
During this period, the Mesma Records’ adventure began, a demanding and adventurous Parisian-New York based label combining electronic and experimental music.
A few years later, Amsem Records was born. This second label was initiated by Gabriel and Marc-Antoine, joined on occasion by his’ brother, Constantin. This label aims to be a real living laboratory of parties and creativity with a simple goal: celebrating music that brings together with unstoppable grooves and moments of collective madness, accompanied by a return to the roots of the club culture they loved so much.
For two years now, Amsem Records has been developing a plural and rich universe through each of its releases (vinyl and digital), visuals, clips, and Parisian evenings. The label began producing its events at the Nouveau Casino, which was immediately suc- cessful. On the strength of its reputation, other clubs such as Rex Club and Badaboum then agreed to open their doors to them. Amsem is determined to continue crossing the threshold of the best clubs in France and Europe.
Pushing the doors of creativity even further, Amsem arrived with fresh energy and original ideas. Its latest project? An official brand of clothing. Designed in New York, made in Portugal and screen printed in Paris, this brand makes the label the herald of music that can be danced as much as it is worn.
