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.

#11. The Socially Conscious Mix - Songs With Powerful Messages
Groovers & Shakers is back with episode eleven The Socially Conscious Mix - Songs With Powerful Messages. In our latest mixtape, we focus on music that speaks on social issues ranging from harsh living conditions to unity and love and everything in between. Although, most of the music is from years back, the messages they speak of are relevant today and will always be relevant as long as people are struggling or rejoicing. With that said, Aldo opens up the show with a nice set of Latin funky jams with sprinkled bits of dialogue throughout to get your third eye opened. Followed by Adam’s all 45 set of socially fueled lyrical heaters. Adam45’s does not hold back on this one as he smoothly blends and transitions these powerful songs. Groovers & Shakers is a show for anyone and everyone and we would like our music to reflect that in our mixes. So come along and join us on this musical journey of consciousness, show eleven, The Socially Conscious Mix - Songs with Powerful Messages. Enjoy and much love.
