Pursuit Grooves releases her solo full length CD entitled ‘Frantically Hopeful’ this summer on Tectonic. The album continues rhythmically where last year’s ‘Fox Trot Mannerisms’ EP left off, but launches into a different head space with lyrics touching on current affairs and technological dependency. Juggling all angles from production, songwriting, MCing and singing, Pursuit Grooves continues what she does best, fusing elements of hip hop, house and broken beats with sensual melodies and vocals. Armed with an analogue four-track cassette recorder, drum machine and years of studying her grandmother and aunt on the piano, Pursuit Grooves began her first productions at the age of 16, and never looked back. A demo in the right hands landed her track ‘Push Up’ on Rush Hour’s ‘Beat Dimensions’ collection, alongside some of the brightest up and coming electronic artists around the world, and following three mostly instrumental albums on her own What Rules label; ‘Fun Like Passion’, ‘Wild Art Forestry’, ‘And Sustainable Movements For A New Age’, she signed with Tectonic, releasing ‘Fox Trot Mannerisms’ to great acclaim in 2010 ; “A bewitching concoction of cut-up computer rhythms and soulful vocals” - DJ Mag … “A degree of soulfulness that many of her contemporaries fail to lock down” – IDJ … “Sublime” – FACT … “Delicious” – Clash … “A real grower” - Drowned In Sound. ‘Frantically Hopeful’ challenges conversations and feet alike, offering a true backdrop to the world we live in today. Preceeding the release of the the CD-only 11 track set is this limited run vinyl EP, presenting six of the album’s more floor-friendly tunes.
