Brooklyn-born VICTOR SIMONELLI is name well known to soulful house dance freaks. He was a pivotal player in the emergence of the NYC house scen. Mr S started way back when working with the legendary Arthur Baker and since, he’s worked with everyone and anyone! Victor launched his solo career under the Groove Committee moniker with the classic ‘I Want You To Know’ on the legendary Nu Groove Records label and he went onto work in all kinds of guises… Solution, NY’s Finest, Critical Rhythm and Cloud 9 being amongst the better-known.
If you danced (indeed still dance- his records are still being played) to Victor’s beats or you want to learn why he is so important, you may want to check out two upcoming, definitive double vinyl albums – ‘Victor Simonelli: The Early Years Vols 1 & 2’ available via Behind The Groove. The albums are stuffed with dance floor classics like Cloud 9’s ‘Do You Want Me’, Solution’s ‘Feel So Right’, Instant Exposure’s ‘Wanna Be With You’, ’Do You Feel Me’ by NY’s Finest; ‘Dirty Games’ and ‘I Know A Place’.
