When Dutch duo Chocolate Puma ventured to Junior Sanchez’s New Jersey studio to put the final touches on their collaboration “Lost Your Groove,” they never imagined that one of their biggest musical inspirations Todd Terry would ring the doorbell and offer to jump on the record.
A pioneering force in the late 80s house era, Terry layered the track’s funky elements with gorgeous synth keys throughout, while Chocolate Puma and Junior Sanchez cross-pollinated classic house melodies and guitar strums with songstress Arama’s silky vocals. “Lost Your Groove” is available as a two-week Beatport Exclusive.
“Without Todd we wouldn’t make the beats we’ve been making for over 20 years, “Chocolate Puma explains. “He was the first to bring grit and dirt to house … so it was kind of mind-blowing that Todd randomly started playing some keyboard parts on our track!”
“Lost Your Groove” is already taking the dance world by storm after peaking at #1 on DMC’s Buzz Chart two weeks ago.
