FRIDAY NIGHT FUNK – GROOVE ARMADA: I SEE YOU BABY 1999 (PAPER ROMANCE 2010)
“This is the house that funk built – Groove Armada style!”
Or perhaps not – Groove Armada (English electronic music duo Andy Cato and Tom Findlay) is another big beat funk entry from the 1990’s.
This entry, I See You Baby, is arguably their signature single and certainly one of the defining songs of 1999-2000. Although the original single was funky in itself, I prefer the even funkier remix by Fatboy Slim. (Interestingly, the duo DJ’d Fatboy Slim’s – or rather, Norman Cook’s – wedding). Watch out for that video – it gets a little raunchy
“You got to get on the dance floor…Oh this party got it going on!”
Don’t look for much in the way of lyrical depth (or lyrics) there – it’s all about the funk.
Close runner-up was their 2010 single Paper Romance from their album Black Light (also remixed with other songs in their White Light album that year)
