nite groove



Nite Grooves represents the subdivision of the long time running music label, King Street Sounds which is a division of Hiís Productions USA.

Founded by Hisa Ishioka in 1993, King Street Sounds has established itself as one of the oldest and most respected independent dance music labels in NYC. The label name was inspired by the actual location of legendary New York City night club Paradise Garage. The label is also heavily inspired by the late Larry Levan.

In combination with sister labels Street King and Nite Grooves, King Street has yielded some of the best dance music releases in tech/progressive house, soulful/vocal house, and nu jazz/future soul. One of King Street Sounds' most notable records is Johnny Dangerous's "Problem #13," which is well known as "I Beat That Bitch with a Bat" and, in 2003, was sampled on Rah Digga's "Party & Bullshit."

Overall catalogue releases include work from producers Louie Vega, Roger Sanchez, Danny Tenaglia, Alex Kenji, Junior Vasquez, Satoshi Tomiie, Kerri Chandler, Cevin Fisher, and Larry Levan among others.

By working with some of dance musicís most reputable names and aggressively seeking out new talent, King Street continues to build a solid following across the globe.

The year of 2013 marked 20 years since the first release on Nite Grooves, King Street Sounds' offshoot dedicated to the deeper end of American house music. Given the increased interest in vintage US house, it seems fitting that this back catalogue mix-up from DJ Spinna includes a smattering of early Nite Grooves releases. Cannily, Spinna manages to join the dots between almost two decades of goodness, contrasting early fare from the likes of Bassmental and Cevin Fisher, with more recent material from Nil By Mouth, Alex Font and Conga Squad. The result is a deep, undulating, warm trip through New York after dark, ending on the dancefloor at Cielo.
