The crew we got
is diverse & eclectic
Groovers & Shakers consists of two friends, Aldo and Adam, each with a very diverse taste in music and each sharing a dedication for deejaying and records. It all started way back, from their early years of listening to 80s hip hop music and breakdancing to playing in rock bands as teens and eventually getting into deejaying in high school. As the time passed, one thing was certain their admiration for music expanded.
Fast forward to around 2009, the deejay duo began making mixtapes and spinning occasional gigs together. Although, at the time they did not officially refer to themselves as Groovers & Shakers the foundation was already there. With each one having a distinct musical background listeners can expect an eclectic mix of music that is refreshing and satisfying to the ears.
In addition to deejaying each of the members is using their side talents and skills to make Groovers & Shakers a much better show and experience for the listener. Adam handles the production and Aldo oversees design. Tune in and be part of the Groovers & Shakers family as we preserve vinyl culture through the diversity of music.

#9. The Funk Express Extravaganza Bonanza: From Jazz Funk 2 Deep Funk!
Groovers & Shakers is back with mix number nine, The Funk Express Extravaganza Bonanza: From Jazz Funk to Deep Funk. In our latest podcast, Aldo opens up the show with a nice mix of jazz funk classics, expect to hear some breaks and Latin boogaloo heaters to warm up the mix. Followed by a sizzling all funky 45 set by Adam. It was only a matter of time for Adam45s to live up to his name and you better believe it, the man delivers audible gems. Expect to hear some rare funky joints on this one. All that plus more on Groovers & Shakers. Enjoy!
