GROOVE ARMADA'S 'RED LIGHT' LIVE SHOW...
When Andy Cato and Tom Findlay announced they were retiring the Groove Armada live show, it wasn’t so they could put their feet up. This summer has seen the duo taking its ‘Red Light’ show to select stages around Europe, armed with four decks, effects and integrated, on-the-fly visuals. For those who were beginning to tire of GA Live, this new incarnation has all the signs of a damn fine reinvention. Or, in the words of the guys, a return “to the spirit of the warehouses where the GA project started”.
The first ‘Red Light’ performance was at Rockness in the Scottish Highlands back in June, and video evidence suggests it went down a storm. Since then Cato and Findlay have dazzled Space in Ibiza, Serbia’s EXIT Festival, their very own London gathering Lovebox and Belgium’s vast Tomorrowland.
The duo’s show utilises Kinect cameras to create a “real-time humanised visual system” from live footage, making for an eye-popping backdrop to the music. All the visuals are live generated and reconfigured from movement behind the decks. Of course the trickery could add up to a big "meh", but it really looks like they’ve nailed it, along with a return to upfront, euphoric GA house. Pleasing news indeed for fans of old...
